(208) IMDb 7/10
Available in HD

It's great to be Spider-Man. For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen. But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro, Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he.

Amazing. This film is visually amazing. This is probably the visually amazing film made to date. However I have to say I enjoyed The Amazing Spider-man more. Yes the visuals are incredible. The acting is also great. The only thing that let this film down for me was that it was too soap oprahish.

The dramatisation between Gwen and Peter was a bit over done for me. Off and on, no and off, again and again for the bulk of the film did get a bit wearing after 2 hours. I also found Peter to almost be suffering from multiple personality disorder, in the first scene he is a confident carefree jock type taunting a Russian mobster while his is running down civilians and sending inhabited cars flying. Then walks into his own graduation late partially dressed, high fives the Dean, and swoops Gwen off her feet kissing her in front of the graduation audience. Then goes back to the shy, neurotic, but caring Peter Parker I know from the comics. Then some of his answers or explanations for his Spider-man activities, make his sound like he was just plain High. I believe Garfield is a great actor I think they should just told one Peter Parker to play instead of three.

The final thing that let me down about this movie was the ending. I am not talking about the part that every comic book fan knew was coming, but I personally hate films finishing in the middle of fights. There is mention of what is next, the Sinister 6, and mystery man , but I would have preferred if they finished off the movie properly. All in all I did like Spider-man's fighting style but I think it did rely too heavily on his webbing, rather that his strength. I would give this movie 3.5 stars but the visuals pushed this to a 4 star for me.

The amazing spider-man was a rather slow going rehash of the Spider-man story. I was hoping for a better second outing for Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man but how I was disappointed. You can forgive the direction of one overly long film but to do the same again is unforgivable.

The amazing Spider-Man 2 suffers the same problems as the first, but even worst, long periods of character building or useless mind-numbing chit-chat that makes this film run like snail in a marathon. At first it starts off well and looks promising with a nice action scene, then chugs along until the last 30 mins when you get not 1 but 3 enemies. The problem is that although a few enemies survive none of the battles are that intensive. They are more like a couple of oldies having a handbag fight.

The amazing Spider-Man also did not learn from Spider-Man 3 which was don't introduce too many enemies in one film, 2's a crowd but 3....

Overall, it's a poor film that suffers all the problems of the first film. I hear they are making a third but if the franchise continues like the first two the 3rd will be its last!

It's better than the third in the original trilogy but not as good as the first Spiderman 2.
Too many villains, not enough screen time for Electro or Rhino and I'd have liked to see more build up in the Harry Osborne friendship with Peter and eventual change to the Goblin. They could have left that for the next movie. That being said many plot lines have been left open ended so there's obviously more to come.
The effects and action sequences are great and Andrew Garfield is excellent in the role of Peter/Spiderman.
As for the Bluray, it's nice to have the digital copy included but the limited edition comic is seriously dissapointing. ASDA include a toy mask instead of the comic for the same price, I'd have preferred that, much better value.

Treading water or sinking? Spider-man will eat himself soon. Or will it be a remake of him eating himself. I don't see what good this does anyone. Remaking parts of a story and throwing in bits of new and old characters, changing bits at whim. Do we really want to play spot the baddy? Oh and how have they remade that costume? Was't it this or that before? Spot the difference on a million dollar budget? Huh, money can be better spent. The comics got trapped in the re-boot syndrome and now the movies have. Same old Spidey If you want to entertain us take us somewhere new please. [Thankfully we have the Avengers and GOTG]

I watched this film last night not expecting much from it with the mixed reviews, i must say it was average nothing special just a confused script and over the top CGI that makes parts look cartoony. I am not sure what age group this is aimed at but the first spider man film I enjoyed and I am 43yrs old..

P.S I thought captain America 2 was brilliant

Unimpressed with the limited edition comic book. Granted, I should have read the description which says 16-page custom-made comic, found inside the box, but I was expecting more than a flimsy A5 booklet with crap cropping, looking like a storyboard for the film. An issue related to the film's plot would have been great. Nice shiny sleeve though.
