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 web-slinging superhero. It seemed like Spidey's days were numbered, 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 web-slinging superhero. This is `The Amazing Spider-Man', a new beginning for the web-slinging superhero starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. Many wondered whether this film would be a success. But it worked, and has become popular today as the Tobey Maguire era 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' and didn't think I would enjoy this new movie. But on a whim with my parents we went see it and I enjoyed watching it! It was an `amazing' experience watching `Spider-Man' in the cinemas again, and I really enjoyed Andrew Garfield who played Peter with a completely different angle in terms of story and character. I had no idea it would turn out to be a success.

So what makes this version of `Spider-Man' different to the Tobey Maguire era? Well, firstly whereas this version takes a modern approach from recent comics. Secondly, this film deals more with Peter Parker as a teenager in his high school.

I wasnt blown away by this, im a spider man fan in context and was eager to get my eyes on this. It fell on its knees on a few issues for me. I wasnt wild about the villain in this, the cgi is too obvious for me, he isnt sadistic enough for me. Spiderman throwing out puns and jokes as he battles wasnt that hot for me especially as they werent funny hey.
The relationship between peter and his new love didnt feel as powerful as the old relationship and with that in mind the old films are that old really so a reboot wasnt entirely wise hey.
Aside from all of that its popcorn cinema and it succeeds on that front. A good film, not a while pile more.

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.

It appears audiences have gotten too hip to buy into the "radioactive spider" bite scenario, so the writers opted for a gene splicing spider bite. The film incorporates many of the original Spider-man ideas, people, and scenes, while maintaining a certain amount of originality. The plot of the film has already been compromised (40 year anniversary of first publication), so there is no need for me to dwell on it.

3D holograms are used in the film, and of course Spider-man flies directly at your head. If you have the wallet and opportunity, I would suggest the 3D version.

In all honesty I preferred Toby McGuire to Andrew Garfield as Spider-man. That is not to say Andrew did a bad job, he didn't. The part was written different. I am a big fan of Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), who has been in High School going on 6 years now. She can play the hottie and the nerd both better than most actresses. But what this film didn't have was that one defining moment that will forever be played in movie pop culture history and that was "The Kiss" which drove women into the theater. Yes, Emma and Andrew swap spit, but it wasn't the same as that upside down, remove the mask, just rescued me moment.

Denis Leary, who typically plays an angry comic, delivers in his role as Captain Stacy. Good action. For a 2 hour plus movie, it moves rather quickly. The real unanswered question is, "Will Andrew Garfield join the Avengers?"

PARENTAL GUIDE: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.
