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.

This review is for Timelord007, who is a fan of the Andrew Garfield era of `Spider-Man'.

With the 'Spider-Man' movie series in doubt, it was unclear whether there would be another movie featuring the wall-crawling web-slinging superhero. It seemed like Spidey's days were numbered as plans for `Spider-Man 4' by Sam Raimi were scraped in 2010. But the web-slinging superhero's days on the big screen were far from over as a new era was about to begin. `Spider-Man' was reinvented and rebooted for a whole new generation of fans to enjoy!

In 2012, the `Spider-Man' series was reinvented and started again with a new lead actor taking on the action-packed web-slinging superhero. This is `The Amazing Spider-Man', a new beginning for the web-slinging superhero starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacey. Many wondered whether this film would be successful. But it worked, and has become popular today as the Tobey Maguire era of `Spider-Man' was.

When I first heard about this remake of `Spider-Man', I wasn't overtly keen. I remained loyal to Tobey Maguire's `Spider-Man' that I didn't think I would enjoy this new movie version of the superhero. Nor did I want to. I wasn't ready to accept a new face playing Peter Parker who becomes Spider-Man. Also I didn't want to start all over again with the spider biting Peter and getting super powers as I thought they'd already done that and didn't need to do it again. When it came out of the cinemas, I wasn't really bothered to watch it. But on a whim my parents suggested we'd go and see it.

I really enjoyed this. I'm a fan of superhero films anyway, though I'm not specifically a Spidey fan. I felt fairly unenthusiastic about the previous Spider-Man trilogy and by the third one I kind of hated Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker.

So when this reboot came along I didn't expect much, especially a reboot of a franchise so recently done-to-death.

Turns out, I really enjoyed it.

Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker is an updated version of the classic comic-book version. And I think that went a long way to making him much more relatable for me. The storyline is really well paced and whereas the previous Spider-Man often felt somewhat indulgent, this one is lean and mean in all the right places.It doesn't over-use CGI, and plays a nice hand with the way Spider develops through the inevitable "discovering powers" scenes.

Another comparison is the one-off-love between Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker and MJ, and
Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker and Gwen. Maguire's Parker made me want to slap him, repeatedly. Garfield's Parker made me genuinely feel like this guy was having to make some tough choices during/after a period of turmoil.

Having got used to Toby McGuire as Spiderman, I was a little apprehensive about 'another' Spiderman. However, the story and acting was as good as, if not better than the other ones.
