4.0 out of 5 stars Didn't think I'd enjoy it but it's good fun 22 Nov 2013
By I. Sato
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I was a big fan of the original Spider-Man movie trilogy (yes, even the lame 3rd movie) so I was skeptical about whether I'd enjoy it (constantly telling myself that it was too soon for a reboot) but man, does Andrew Garfield deliver.

It's certainly a different take on the young Peter Parker, though he is back with his original girlfriend (from the comics) Gwen Stacey he is also qwirky instead of nerdy - all in all this makes him more relatable than the original Peter Parker and the chemistry between Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield is great.

Watch it, it's good fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly excellent 19 Aug 2014
By Richard
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy (Spider-Man 2 being the standout) and it did seem like a strange decision from Marvel to reboot the character before the dust had even settled on those films. However, for me, The Amazing Spider-Man really jumped out of their shadows and is a great piece of work in its own right.

Peter Parker's origin and backstory have been tweaked which probably isn't everyone's cup of tea but it worked for me, bringing a bit of freshness to this oft told story. Emma Stone steps in as Gwen Stacy (no Mary-Jane this time out) and she has great chemistry with Andrew Garfield as the new fresh faced Spidey. Garfield himself is on top form and it looks like he's having a blast out there, especially in the standard - Peter playing with his new powers scenes.

Marc Webb as director brings a deft touch to the comedy and the romance, possibly honed on previous effort 500 Days of Summer (quality film). He does a good job with the action set pieces and the effects hold up well. Throw in a tragic, conflicted villain (Rhys Ifans) and solid support elsewhere from the likes of Martin Sheen and Denis Leary and you've got a pretty damn fine package. It's also got my favourite Stan Lee cameo.

Various seeds are set for the inevitable sequel and it's pretty welcome after this effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than Raimi's version! 29 July 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was a fan of the 'original' films with good ol' Tobey (although not the last one, because MAN that sucked), so I was kind of apprehensive about checking this out, but since it had Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone (actors I love), I figured I'd give it a shot.

This was such an awesome adaptation! Much more loyal to the comics, really captured the fun and cheeky side of Spidey, the characters (and character development) were just spot-on and everyone was fantastic in their roles.

Gwen and Peter shone in this (much more chemistry than Peter and MJ in Raimi's version) and I liked that Gwen was smart, funny and actually able to help. It's good to see a strong female figure in action movies who can help save the hero from time to time.

The villain in this was also much better developed and that general storyline was well-handled.

I don't want it to sound like I'm hating on Raimi's version, because that wasn't without its charms and I really did enjoy that. But, IMO, this far surpasses it in every aspect.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'FEELS LIKE WE'RE STARTING OVER' 30 Aug 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Different studio,different cast...............must admit i was, before watching first time around, a little skeptical.
However although we start at the very beginning so soon after the 3-movie series(2002-7) ....i have to say, maybe because technology advances are so rapid, this film for me was a whole lot funnier with faster action ( new villains ) along with much in the way of impressive c.g.i to admire.
You know the story, sit back and enjoy 'in the beginning' all over again.
(of course the next installment will be dropping through the door very soon)
