Review: The Amazing Spider-Man

Jun. 29, 2012by: Chris Bumbray

PLOT: A new take on Spider-Man's (Andrew Garfield) origins, pitting him against scientist Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), who turns himself into a deadly mutant lizard after ingesting a formula that's supposed to regenerate DNA. Meanwhile, Peter Parker falls head-over-heels in love with his high-school classmate Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone), whose father (Dennis Leary) just happens to be the cop tasked with putting Spider-Man behind bars.

REVIEW: I know- a SPIDER-MAN reboot only ten years after the original film made $800 million dollars, and only five years since the last instalment of the original franchise seemed like an obvious cash-grab, and yeah, I'm sure Sony's going to make a mint off this new rebooted version of the franchise. But wonder of wonders, director Marc Webb's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is actually a good film.

Scratch that. Actually, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is a DAMN good film, and- all due respect to Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire, quite a bit better than any of the other films, and yes that includes the beloved part 2. Before checking this out, I re-reviewed all the SPIDER-MAN films, and with the massive exception of the third film, they're good. But, it can't be denied, Webb's film improves on the original trilogy in every way possible.


Firstly, Andrew Garfield is an incredible Spider-Man. Rather than pull-off a Tobey Maguire impression, he totally reinvents the part, with Peter Parker, pre-bite, no longer being a cartoonish caricature of what Hollywood thinks a geek is, but rather a darker, more brooding outcast. Imagine Spider-Man by way of James Dean, and that's what you get here. It's totally a departure from the other films, but it works beautifully. Best of all, Parker finally has a love interest that's worthy of him. I always hated Mary-Jane's vacuousness in the other films (ok- she's hot, I get it- but why does Parker love her?), but here, in the hands of the personable Emma Stone- Stacy's already crazy about Peter before he ever gets bitten. The chemistry between Stone and Garfield is absolutely white-hot, and the make an incredibly appealing couple.

Granted, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN does cover a few of the same beats as the first film, namely Parker's relationship with Uncle Ben, and his sad demise, but Sheen's interpretation of the part, like Garfield's, is edgier, and more down-to-earth, making his death even sadder than it was in the first film. And Sally Field's Aunt May no longer feels like a caricature, but rather a down-to-earth, relatable mother.


Still, while it covers a lot of the same ground, the way it's done is different enough that, unlike the first film, you won't be counting the minutes before Peter finally dons his Spidey-suit. In fact, I was having a good enough time watching Garfield in some of the cool, parkour-inspired chases and fights, that I honestly stopped caring about when he'd suit up (kinda like BATMAN BEGINS, right?). And once he does, Webb takes a far different tact than Raimi, in that the action is used a lot more sparingly. Sure- there's spectacle, and CGI- but there's less of it than you'd think, which is actually a positive for me. My reasoning is this: by spending more time on character building, when the action hits, it had much more impact, and this is a lesson Webb seems to have picked up. It all builds to a climax that has more of an emotional effect than any superhero movie since THE DARK KNIGHT, and I can't imagine anyone walking out of this not craving a sequel (speaking of which- stay for the end credits).

Now I know putting the guy who directed 500 DAYS OF SUMMER in charge of a SPIDER-MAN film may not have seemed the obvious choice, but that works to the film's advantage. Working with ace cinematographer John Schwartzman, he's made a film that's visually impressive, both with 3D and without. The POV web-slinging shots everyone was worried about are used sparingly, and when they happen, they're effective- making the 3D seem worthwhile, although once again, I'm sure it's just as good in 2D. I love the cool, quasi-futuristic look Schwartzman and Webb give to the film, and this a far more confidently grand film than I would have expected (ignore the inevitable 500 DAYS OF SPIDER-MAN jokes). Also worth mentioning is that, thanks to James Horner, we finally have a superhero film outside the BATMAN franchise that has a kick-ass musical score- although we do get the requisite, Pitchfork-approved selection of indie rock tracks (sorry Chad Kroger, Pitchfork does not approve).


For the hardcore SPIDER-MAN fans that have been complaining about the reboot, I strongly suggest you give this a chance as this is really as good a reboot as we could have gotten. Garfield and Stone are absolutely perfect, the film is well directed and tightly paced (I couldn't believe this was 136 minutes, as it felt shorter), and an intriguing direction for future instalments is laid out, although this means a few unresolved plot threads that some critics are already complaining about (be patient). I know the Raimi films are much loved, but it can't be denied that this is just...better. It's a strong, strong film, and an extremely promising start to a franchise that could really blow us all away if we give it a chance.

NOTE: Since a lot of you have asked me to elaborate on The Lizard, I've decided to add a little epilogue of sorts to my review. Rhys Ifans is very good as Dr. Connors/ The Lizard. He's certainly in the tradition of Alfred Molina as Doc Ock, in that he's very sympathetic. As Connors, he's not even remotely villainous, and his transformation into Lizard is actually heroic, in that he uses himself as a guinea pig to dissuade the greedy Oscorp suit- played by Iffran Khan, from using his untested formula on unknowing patients. Once he's The Lizard, he's more of your quintessential baddie- but it all comes together in a very nice way towards the end. But- I will admit that the film is less interested in Spidey's conflict with The Lizard than he relationship with Gwen or his inner turmoil. However, that's exactly what I liked about the movie- although I'm sure not everyone will feel the same way. Of course, Connors being an employee of Oscorp sets up the sequels in a fun way, with numerous references to Norman Osborn, who, we're told, is a sickly conglomerate who needs Connors serum to survive.

''He's certainly in the tradition of Alfred Molina as Doc Ock...''
YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME!!! First of all i don't read the comics, so i dont know much about the Lizard character, but i can say how good or bad was Ifans was as a scientist who's greatets wish is to be normal like everyone else. Bland, not passionate enough, empty character, never felt good or bad about him, never concerned about his condition. In resume, no emotional bond at all. In the other hand, Alfred Molina is one of

U can feel sorry for him when he realizes at the end of the movie how fucked up he was and actually tries to struggle with it, committing an ultimate sacrifice.

I liked the film

I didn't expect a lot from this movie, but it was entertaining and cool. The new spiderman is very sympathetic and refreshing. I like how funny spiderman can be. The best thing about this movie is that it hasn't the "spidey has to save his love interest again... and again... and again" plot.

beyond my expectation

Just watched it last night (earlier in Asia, as usual), and my oh my...it's a solid reboot (okay it is unnecessary, but still a good one), great chemistry between Garfield and Stone...overall, I have to agree w/ the 9 rating.

"TASM is quite a bit better than any of the other films"

If it's quite a bit better than any of the other films, how come it looks quite a bit worse than the majority of them?

It still looks shitty to me, the trailers do nothing for me, but I'll see it prob. just wait to see how die hard fans like it. Just the only thing killing it for me is the CGI it looks so terrible. IS it terrible????

I just wanna know how much screentime is actually devoted to the origin story, since the film is over 2 hours?

While the review is great about recommending it, to me it just seems more like a comparison to the first movies. NO mention of how Lizard was in this movie or how much of the origin story is utilized.

'it can't be denied this is just... better'

well yes it can be denied, it's called an opinion. Whether a piece of art is good or bad or better or worse isn't a fact, it's an opinion... so yeah actually, it CAN be denied.

Still open to giving this movie a chance, but nothing about it has turned me on enough to give it a theatre watch (unless the 3D gets rave reviews them I might consider) right now I'll wait for blu.

I really cant wait to see this movie now; I was never supportive of the film right from the get go, the second trailer showed me maybe this wont be all that bad and I was going to give it a chance and now this review. Ill definately will be checking the film out; no comic fan wouldnt, and im going to it with an openmind. Glad chris liked it and while I believe chris is the best reviewer on this site most of his reviews I've often disagreed with. Saying that I hope I dont disagree with him here

Well, THIS's unexpected....

The review is good (although ZERO mention of the villain and main plot development, WHY???), and surely makes me want to watch this film more than I thought I would....But comparing to the original trilogy, this review is like a checkpoint of the ways this is better than the orginal Spider-Man, there's nothing here that's even remotely suggests that TASM is even "better" than Spider-Man 2 (which the review claims at the beginning). SM2 is one of the BEST superhero movie before the TDK came out

SM2 is one of the BEST superhero movie before the TDK came out (has a rottentomatoe score of 93%) and maybe its just me, but its REALLY HARD to believe Amazing Spider-Man is better than Spider-Man 2, seems more like a personal choice of Bumbrey than anything else....Which is OK, because aren't we all have personal choices of our own? And yes, as I love his reviews and more often than not these reviews work for me as a compass of any film good or bad, it CAN BE possible that the new Spider-man is better than everything that came out before......I just have to watch it to believe it. Until then, I'll just hope for a GOOD MOVIE, thats all.

What do you expect from CB? The guy only has time to bash Adam Sandler. If it isn't Sandler related its an instant 9/10.

Masterdebator, I whole heartedly ABSOLUTELY DISAGREE. I've read HUNDREDS of reviews by Bumbrey, and while I may not always agree with his views, he's MILES BETTER than many many other supposed "critics" and "intellectual reviewers" out there. More often than not, his reviews are precise, clear and to the point about what is good or bad about any film. While I do agree that this film looks like a 7/10 to me too, everyone is entitled to their openion, aren't they? Its not like you have to agree

No offense, but your comment (or comments I can see below) about CB is just seems plain ignorant. Really, just how many reviews did you actually read from Bumbrey? ....You know, I don't really care about The Amazing Spider-Man (atleast until I see it), and none of the trailers really make me think otherwise, and I do love Spider-Man 1 & 2, but that doesn't mean it can't be possible for a new Spidey movie to be even better than those films (either this new film or any other future projects).....And guess what, as much as I'm a skeptic, in the end I'm open to that. I mean, if it can happen to Burton's Batman, it can very well happen to Raimi's Spider-Man too (though however unlikely it is). Anyway, cheers Dude.

Haven't Seen

While I haven't seen this yet, I am not 100% sold because comparing to one of the worst superhero movies ever is not a good thing; "Batman Begins" is insulting on every level. More importantly though, maybe I misinterpreted what you meant, but you think this is a better film because it's more realistic and less over-the-top, aka less comic book-y, which in a comic book movie is a good thing now?

"Comic book-y" is a term invented by Hollywood execs who only have a vague, limited idea of what a comic book is. A comic should feel like a comic, a video game should feel like a video game and a movie should feel like a movie. You want to make an adaptation, adapt. You want to reproduce the feel of the original medium, stick to that medium.

I have to disagree. Comic books can be very grounded in reality, etc., but they still have cartoony (or over-the-top) element (this is about superhero comics, because I know something like Daniel Clowes or Harvey Pekar is a different breed entirely). And that's what makes superhero comics so appealing from the out set (forgoing characterizations and such, as these things will affect the comic one way or the other), it's our world to some degree, but heightened, stylized, etc. Taking that way

Yes, movies are a different medium, and I understand that certain things need to be changed, but taking away what makes a superhero appealing on a base level seems to be missing the point to me.

I can see your point but I have to disagree. You see, to me, the idea is to start with a basic premise and make it believable. Take, for example, the Superman movie from the 70s: the tag line was "You will believe a man can fly". Right there they were admitting that the premise was "comic book-y" but they were promising that they would make it believable. Nolan approached Batman Begins with the same vision: we have a guy who dresses up like a bat and fights crime. How does one make it

Nolan approached Batman Begins with the same vision: we have a guy who dresses up like a bat and fights crime. How does one make it believable? If you go the other way and forget about believability than you end up with Superman 4 with Superman fighting Nuclear Man or with batman and Robin with them putting ion ice skates and fighting hockey players. Can you see how by neglecting believability we end up with crap?

If Superman 4 and Batman and Robin are any indication then perhaps all Superhero series should stop at three films and be rebooted. Wolverine was also the 4th X-Men movie and, let's face it, it could have been better. (I didn't like the way Wolverine losing his memory was treated as an afterthought. In the comics he lost his memory as a result of the procedure. I think we should have had a grim and gritty Act 2 where Wolverine is being hunted as an animal and he doesn't remember who is he or why people are hunting him. All the superfluous cameos were unnessary and detracted from the movie.) Maybe not having Raimi do a fourth film was a good idea. (Although it wouldn't surprise me if we saw the Vulture and the Black Cat in a future Spiderman movie.)

@Martin, In answer to your question, yes, I can see how neglecting the believable factor we end up with some absolute drivel, but your examples go to far in the other direction. They don't bother to even try to make their worlds believable at all. I am simply arguing that ignoring the larger than life-ness inherent in superhero stories and focusing solely on the realistic misses the point, which is how it's sounding to me based on this review. "Batman Begins" did this, and holy hell, do I hate

"Batman Begins" did this, and holy hell, do I hate that movie, with that being one of the plethora of reasons I loathe it . Look at "The Incredibles"- very engaging in that larger-than-life way, but also very emotionally rewarding because of how they make the world believable. The filmmakers found a pretty good balance (if not the exact right one), and didn't need to sacrifice believablity for action beats and vice versa. Mind you, while the trailers really haven't sold me on this flick, I love "500 Days Of Summer", and think Marc Webb is a gifted director. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are two of my favorite on the rise stars, and Rhys Ifans is always awesome. I just feel this review loved it for it's attention to a real world situation, without explaining how it works as escapism. Make sense?

Well, one advantage of fantasy is that you can literally throw anything at the audience so Star Wars can have both space ships and mysticism, The Lord of the Rings can have both swords and sorcery and Harry Potter can have both trolls and werewolves in addition to magic. The Harry Potter series is he only one where you could expect -in your own mind- to actually go outside and meet Harry Potter walking down the street though.

Well, one advantage of fantasy is that you can literally throw anything at the audience so Star Wars can have both space ships and mysticism, The Lord of the Rings can have both swords and sorcery and Harry Potter can have both trolls and werewolves in addition to magic. The Harry Potter series is he only one where you could expect -in your own mind- to actually go outside and meet Harry Potter walking down the street though. It's like Men in Black: you have to believe that underneath the world you see is another world where there are aliens walking around and you don't see this hidden world because the world you see is a facade.

I would say that both Iron Man movies did a good job of making their premise believable, well, right up until Tony Stark discovered a new element that his father knew about and hid in his plans for Stark world so that Tony would one day find it and fix the problem with his suit so it was no longer killing him. That was a what-the-fuck moment that would have been equivalent to revealing that Bruce Wayne's father was still alive or that it wasn't the burglar who killed Uncle Ben but somebody else. Wait. Spiderman 3 actually went that route. Never mind.

The point is that even Thor managed to come across as believable with Asgard now being a planet and not just an island floating in space. It wasn't until Captain America came out and you had Nazis firing laser beams that audiences knew that the Marvel Movie Universe was going to embrace the silliness of the comics universe. Sure enough, the Avengers had the SHIELD helicarrier and a portal to another dimension through which floating worms emerged. Well, okay, why not? I mean, they looked cool, especially when Iron Man flew through one and came out it's backside. That was fun.

The problem is though that once you start embracing silliness and saying "anything goes" then you run the risk of just filming absolute crap. A good writer-director establishes rules for the universe he is working in and doesn't deviate from them. If you were watching a Superman movie and all of a sudden Superman could make duplicates of himself or use his S symbol as a weapon and throw it at a villain then you'd go what-the-fuck, right? I mean like in the final version of Superman 2 after Lester was done with it.

The way I see it, you'll have had three Batman movies from Nolan with Scarecrow, the League of Shadows, The Joker, Two-Face, Bane and Catwoman but without any aliens or magic, neither of which you normally see in batman comics anyway: he usually doesn't face aliens or magic unless he's with the Justice League. The same argument can be applied to Iron man: except for one what-the-fuck moment in Iron man 2 the series has been pretty believable so far and even though Iron Man faced aliens and magic in the Avengers I doubt if there will be any aliens or magic in Iron Man 3.

9/10 ZERO mention of villian...

Like many others, I am just not excited about another origin story so soon with this character.

Like many others, I am just not excited about another origin story so soon with this character. I'm looking forward to seeing Garfield and Stone as it appears they will be far better than Maguire/Dunst. Director Webb is trying to infuse a bit of grittiness which sounds good on paper, but I hope it doesn't take away from the overall tone of Spiderman. If anything, I think that's one of the things Raimi got right in the first two films. The other major aspect I'm apprehensive about is the villain. And the fact that this is a 9/10 movie with ZERO mention of the Lizard save for the plot description, that's not really helping to alleviate my concern.

the lizard isnt that important 2 the film
the center of the film is Peter/spidey
unlike Batman who needs great villains 2 make a great story (the better the villain the better the story)
Spidey can carry a whole story alone

While I agree that the center of the film is Parker/Spiderman, writing off the villain as not that important to the film is a bit ridiculous when the trailers have been presenting their dynamic as a critical point in the story. Regardless of that, when the villain is strong (especially in superhero films) that always makes the movie that much better. That applies to every superhero film IMO and isn't unique to Batman. Batman just has a more interesting set of villains than most other

i didnt say it was unique to batman (im not a batman hater:) the lizard isnt really that important 2 the film curt conners is. ofcourse a better villian makes a better movie. but imagine batman against the lizard it would be a pretty boring story

You have to be fucking kidding yourself if you think a villian in the movie doesnt matter. I dont want to watch a movie where its all about spiderman swinging around thinking about his relationship; if that was the film then it would be pretty much "Superman Returns" which sucked.

Holy...

I knew this movie would get a great review...probably 7 or 8...but 9!!! That's a very VERY strong number for me. I'll see it and then post my opinion.

I'm a hater and still will be a hater. Nothing has changed for me because I don't buy this review. I seriously doubt this movie is better than Spidey 1 and 2. Here in this movie the guy looks like a Power Ranger. And to say this movie "improves on" when clearly from the trailer and other clips there are scenes taken directly from the original trilogy.

On top of that, I can't get on the band when the original trilogy ended only a few years ago. Ironic, the same folks wanting to see this,

I super agree here. It seems like people are wanting so much to love this that they are finding excuses to say its good. It aint better than Spiderman 2. I love Spiderman - I own EVERY single dvd there is to own and have tons of comics, so i want to like this too, but i cannot ignore the facts.

I still don't care for it too much. But I'm a movie buff, so I'll see it anyways. Hopefully it surprises me...like this review did.

Movie was nowhere near as good as CB says...

The movie is on par with the first Raimi movie. It isn't a 9/10, its more of a 7/10. The effects were not great and the story has been done so many times you are bored throughout the origin. You just want them to get to the goods and those are yawn inducing. This IS a movie where you see everything in the trailers. It takes no risks, and ruins the whole comic book legacy by mashing together elements from every generation of spider-man comics.

Thumbs down me if you love weepy dramas about people being bit by spiders and turning into lizards. hahaha I remember loving those issues of the comic where there was no action! Avengers had great action and characters! Why cant Spiderman have both? And why not just make part 4 and stop this reboot stuff. I am dreading sitting through an hour of stupid origin stuff again! Batman and Iron Man, etc never

After I got past my rage and decided to give this film a chance I am now super-stoked for it. It sounds like we have a true classic here. Great review!! The H8rs are going to stay away and miss out for no other reason than their own stupid ignorance.

Im no doubter, my negative feelings on this film have been towards Sony rebooting this solely on the fact to grab more cash. Im still holding true, i don't care if this film got a 10/10, I can not support Sony's failed attempt at running their first run at Spiderman. Then rebooting it so shortly after just because, i don't think its right. Also Just cause there second go at it seems to be done well, doesn't mean they won't mess it up 1, or 2 films later.
Anyways, i hope for all of you

@ManILoveMovies85: Take a chill pill man. Or should I translate that to your dialect... "Take A Chill Pill Moron. Your Reply Is So Stupid."

@Gcolonna: I agree with you about not wanting to support Sony's decision to reboot this franchise. I will not be seeing this in theaters. I would feel differently if this was Spider-man 4: a continuation, yet different actors, director, tone, etc. I'm happy they are making good films, but I'm disappointed they took something I enjoyed and brushed it

Money does make the world go round and making a Spiderman 4 would still bring in $$$. Maybe the principle eludes your simplistic mind, and hey thats ok. Ill break it down for you so its easier for you to understand. Its not the fact that they are rebooting it 10 years later (when its actually only 4). Its the fact that the last film they put out was so atrocious, and the "why" was it so atrocious. A spiderman 4 could have easily been done to rectify the mistake that was

Its the fact that the last film they put out was so atrocious, and the "why" was it so atrocious. A spiderman 4 could have easily been done to rectify the mistake that was Spiderman 3. Now that "CASH GRAB" that i refer too is the fact that they choose to reboot a franchise after again only 4 years (not 10), only to capitalize on their lease on Spidey's rights. Sony doesn't care about the films character (which one can draw this conclusion from Spiderman 3, and this reboot process), the thought process why do a 4th film, when we can remake the 3 films over again for no good reason, and the people will go see it no matter how many times we fuck it up. Not sure if you were on this section throughout the year, but this isn't the fist time this comment has been made, and if you look below its still not "2018 Spidey reboot will be better". So this animosity that your brining is pure waste of negative energy, and a little ignorant as well.

But hey, for a lot of people "the principle" is a term that has been lost. The principle is standing up for whats right to you. Im not holding anyone else back from seeing this film only voicing my opinion to others, and in-fact wishing to other people who don't view this as i do (yourself included) to enjoy the film. However if your not a man of principles in the country to which ever you live, then all your doing is contributing to the weakness that is destroying a nation, maybe its you who should leave you rude degenerate.

@wwallace: Agreed, i don't see why they couldn't have brought all this enengery towards a Spiderman 4, and brought the Lizzard in then. They could have even spent time on a back story with Brok and Venom maybe coming to terms with venom with a nice setup for a 5th film.

Also thanks for the support with MILM85, people like that just bring down the whole vibe of this section in which we are supposed to voice our opinions. But then theres members like yourself that bring it right up

We come here to agree, disagree, voice our opinions for constructive discussions. Then when ignorant people come here, and are rude, and belligerent all because you disagree with a persons opinion, then you have missed the bottom line. If you want to disagree with me, and debate

If you want to disagree with me, and debate thats great! Ill welcome it, but don't insult people for thinking different then you do. All that does is show how ignorant you are, and offend people. Disagree with people by still showing them ALL RESPECT, its not difficult, just drop the words "moron, idiot, leave the country" stuff like that. Theres a small tab below the "STRIKEBACK" section that says rules. Give it a quick read if you haven't yet.

You like the idea of a Reboot, and you know what dude I'm happy for you, go grab a bag of popcorn and sit back and enjoy it.
But dude, not everyones going to feel the same way as you do, and i know this is shocking but they will have their own reason for not feeling that way.

Maybe your new to this site, maybe you think being ignorant is cool, maybe you think boasting about capitalism and saying people have no money makes you feel like you do, maybe your the type of person who thinks driving a 25K vehicle is a rich mans car, maybe your the type of person who takes douchebag pictures of himself, maybe you think a person is only valued based

What i do know, and any person who respects there fellow man knows. Is you show other people respect no matter their age, country, amount of money they have, or opinion. If you don't like my reasons for not supporting the reboot, who cares, they're not your reasons, so I don't expect you to follow suit. However i do expect to be respected, especially if i didn't offend/hurt you, your family, or your religion. Its a simple three rules of why you should respect other people. If out of this entire discussion you understand that moral rule and apply it to the next post, or encounter you have with someone who doesn't agree with you i'll have done you and that person a favour.

If you like feel free to get the last word in, and again enjoy your Amazing Spiderman film hope its a good one for you! Oh, and watch those triple posts, i know it can be really tricky!

Gcologna I will have to respectfully disagree with you. Raimi's movies run their course, they were a trilogy, a pretty good one at that that unfortunately ended on a sour note (certainly not a "failed run" as you mention in your orifinal post), and now it's over. The makers of those movies finished the story they wanted to tell and pretty much everyone involved with them has accepted that.

You suggest that perhaps they should have continued the series with a different creative team,

The makers of those movies finished the story they wanted to tell and pretty much everyone involved with them has accepted that.

You suggest that perhaps they should have continued the series with a different creative team, different actors and a different tone, so I ask you, how different would that have been from a reboot? Just look at the Schumacher Batman movies: they are supposed to be a continuation of Burton's movies, but they have NOTHING in common with them. The only thing that keeps people from calling them reboots, is the fact that they don't show Batman's origin story again.

On one of your answers to ManLoveMovies85, who is totally out of line BTW, you say "why do a 4th film, when we can remake the 3 films over again for no good reason", well this movie is hardly a remake of the first one. Everything from the tone, to the storyline to the main characters is different and also, who told you that they plan to remake Raimi's trilogy in the first place? I am not being aggressive BTW, that's honestly the first time I heard this.

I am glad that you have your principles and you stick to them and if you don't want to see this movie, that's fine with me. I don't think that it's too soon for a reboot and even if it was, as long as it is a good movie, I am A-OK with giving it my money.

@theorendil: In regards to your comments in why, or how is it too soon, or what the difference...

Its the same story, no matter how you dress it up, or cover it up, or market the story, its the same story.. If anything to change it would to take away. This movie is an origin film all over again, its only been 4 years since the last as oppose to 12 years from Schumacher to Nolan. Had Sony done a 4th film, got creative in regards to putting a darker spin on it, and introducing a new feel

They could take the Spiderman universe they have created to new heights, and collaborations, and so on, the door is wide open for high paid creative minds.

Its bother sum (to me) that they're starting from scratch, and are trying to tell me and everyone else its different when ultimately its not. Simply, they want another crack at 3 movies, and then to continue, and maybe even start over again before their lease on Spidey is up. Regarding the trilogy i didnt mean to state that they were planning on remaking his trilogy, that can't be considering the Lizard was never used. Theres only so many real villains that they can use, and the Story of Spidey and Parker are the same, they can not deviate from the comic too much. Thats where I'm coming from at least..

On a side note: MILM85 should defiantly take note on how to have a nice discussion as you showed, looking forward to your response bud

You seem to think that rebooting the series was sort of the easy way out for Sony, but for me the opposite is true! Trust me, you are not the only one who is calling "too soon" on the reboot or doesn't wanna watch the origin story a second time. The way I see it, the easiest thing for Sony would have been to hit the comic book and movie site forums, see what us nerds and geeks wanna see and get some people to do Spider-Man 4 as cheaply and as quickly as possible. They wouldn't care that much

They wouldn't care that much about quality since the third movie despite being panned by both critics and fans alike, was the most succesful of the bunch, financially speaking. I guess you could argue that they though that maybe the fans wouldn't "trust" them after the Spidey 3 fiasco, but honestly, that's nothing that a few well edited trailers and interviews of them saying "we've learned from our mistakes... Honest!" couldn't fix. Therefore, I think that from a financial point of view, the reboot is riskier.

With that being said, all reviews I have read, positive and negative, point out that this is very different movie than the one Raimi made back in 2002. I don't think that we'll see the same story, granted, a part of it will be the same, the part of the story in which a nerdy guy gets bitten by a spider and gets its abilities will happen, but that's just one aspect of the story, the rest can be very different.

That being said, when I actually do see the movie, it won't come in my country, Greece, for another two weeks, I could end up eating my words, LOL.

Frankly, I would have liked to have seen Raimi's Spiderman 4. Raimi originally wanted Sandman and the Vulture in Spiderman 3 and he resented having to use Venom instead. He actually wanted to set up Venom's origin, having Eddie Brook become Venom at the end and then continue in Spiderman 4 with Venom as the villain but Sony didn't approve of that idea either so we ended up with Venom being dispatched in a few minutes which is not what Raimi originally intended. Raimi also wanted the Lizard

Raimi also wanted the Lizard as a villain in Spiderman 4 and the Sony exec's complained that having the main villain be essentially an animal would cheapen the film. (They said the villain needed a "human face".) Eventually they went with the Lizard as the villain anyway so maybe we will see the Vulture and the Black Cat in a future Spiderman movie. I agree that it seems like a waste of time seeing an origin again but, then again, let's face it, Venom is a pretty shitty villain so having him dispatched in a few minutes didn't bother me. I actually think the original Spiderman trilogy turned out pretty much okay, despite all the studio interference and if this series of Spiderman movies turns out to be BETTER then that's a GOOD thing. I just don't want to see the Goblin, Doc Oc, Sandman and Venom all over again. Let's see the Vulture and Kraven the Hunter instead (which we would have eventually gotten from Raimi anyway).

Good call, most people don't realize that Sony pushed and pushed for Venom, and that film wasn't Raimi's intents at all. I didn't know that the executives pushed for a human character, oppose to The Lizard for this film as well, you would think they would have learned a lesson with Spidey 3

Well, I've seen it now and I thought it was okay. Sometimes it is good to start over and forget about what has gone before. The Emo Peter from Spiderman 3 was less sympathetic than this Peter Parker and we would have had that baggage going into Spiderman 4.

Ill see it but...

I was counting down the minutes in Batman Begins - It's not called Bruce Begins or The Amazing Peter. I want action. Having a good amount of action isnt bad! And since we just had 3 Spidey films, I dont want to sit through another awful hour plus of Peter experimenting! I will still see it though.

Don't waste money on seeing it in theaters. If you have seen the trailers, you have seen the movie. It is bland and boring at times when it goes into explaining the origin. There is hardly any good action and the romance is so forced down our throats its annoying. See it is bluray if you are a spidey fan, but it is nowhere near as good as CB says it is.

Wow - Great review. You sold me, as I was completely on the fence about seeing this; mainly leaning towards not seeing it at the cinema. Love that Garfield is a fellow movie-geek - It was great to see his excitement about winning the role at comic con. I will definitely be checking this out in the cinema.

Finally! A true Spider-man film! Raimi's films were good but 70% was Parker and the rest was Spidey and/or experiment-gone-wrong villain (which, I guess is every Spidey film villain thus far). Either way, July 2nd cant get here soon enough!

Um dude, the review states that most of the movie is Gwen/ Peter's romance, and there are only a few action beats. As such, I feel this movie might be more than 70% Peter. Haven't seen though, but judging solely on this review, I'd bet that's how it is.

Agreed! I'm very glad this surprised me so much and that it's probably going to become some sort of sleeper hit that delivers a shot of webbing into the face of expectations. Everyone seemed to really dislike this movie mainly because it's a reboot that came a little too fast, but I was reminded that The Incredible Hulk reboot did come pretty fast too. I'm going to see this again in 3D tonight (saw it in 2D the first time around) and probably will have a really great time once again.

As a HUGE Spider-Fan I couldn't be more happy with this.

I love the first two Raimi films, but they fell far from giving me a faithful adaptation of Spider-Man. I feel they have finally nailed, and the overwhelming number of people I've talked to that have watch The Amazing Spider-Man already love this film to death, claiming that's not just the best Spider-Man film, but one of the best entries in the superhero genre. Actually, I'm happy not only for The Amazing Spider-Man, but for The Avengers and TDKR. This year is a full on nerdgasm for comic book

Sounds good!

I have read some pretty contradicting reviews about Spidey's reboot, so I think that this will be one of the most polarizing or "love it or hate it" movies of the year. That being said, I am definitely going to see it, especially since it's gotten a good review by you guys. I loved the hell out of (500) Days Of Summer, so I am pretty curious to see how Mark Webb handles a big budget action movie.

I think there will be some who enter the screening with a bias against it, simply because it is too soon for a reboot. Actually, there will be A LOT of people who feel this way. I think it is hard to change someone's predetermined thoughts, so those who want to hate it, will hate it. Even if the film was better than the originals, do you honestly expect the detractors to admit that? The film needs to be judged on it's own merits: if the original Spider-Man series didn't exist, would this

I don't follow comics, but from what I do know, it seems that over time, a new series will try to reinvent a Superhero. The Amazing Spider-Man isn't the first movie to reboot a dying franchise (why do people expect Sam Raimi to do any better than he did on the third film? Spider-Man 3 was the most "Raimi" of all the films, with his signature cheesy humor overtaking the film. How would he make 4 any better?). The point is, there is already hate directed toward this film, but those who stayed open-minded seem to love it.

I wholeheartedly agree with you. I don't think that Raimi's franchise could recover after the Spider-Man 3 fiasco, without dramatically changing the tone and direction of the series. What people seem to forget, is that Raimi's movies are as much about Harry as they are about Peter and that story ended with Spidey 3.

There is also the fact that pretty much no one associated with Raimi's movies, including Raimi himself and Tobey Maguire, was willing to return for a fourth one. My point is

There is also the fact that pretty much no one associated with Raimi's movies, including Raimi himself and Tobey Maguire, was willing to return for a fourth one. My point is that even if we had gotten a Spider-Man 4, it would bear very little similarity to the movies that came before it. I think it would have been to Raimi's movies what the Schumacher Batman movies were to Burton's, and that, as far as I am concerned, is not that much different than a reboot.

Since you mention the comics, I am not a huge fan or follower, but I do know that around the time Raimi's first Spidey movie hit the theaters, a new continuity was launched called Ultimate Spider-Man, which was sort of a modern reboot of the series. I prefer to think of the Amazing Spider-Man movie as a new continuity, kinda like the Ultimate Spider-Man comics that I just mentioned.

You just said everything I've been waiting to hear.

For me the Raimi Trilogy was servicable, but left much to be desired.

A darker and broodier Peter Parker is not what I want in Spider-Man, so I'll still have to see it to be convinced. I like the classic Parker. He's relatable, classic, and it works. I appreciate the new films take on the character, but Peter Parker/Spider-man is one of the few comics that I am a die hard for, and messing with the original formula irks me. I'm sure this is a very entertaining film, but the dramatic change in origin story really bothers me. I also don't like the lack of action,

It seems that, as a reviewer, you are looking at this film in a different way, and I am glad that it doesn't suck, but as to whether it's actually a 9 or not, that I can't go with right now. With all the changes they've made and everything I've read from this review, I can't say I will agree. Raimi gave me a near perfect Spider Man movie, and even more near perfect movie in Spider Man 2, so I just can't see this film topping that.

ok so maybe ive seen screened this movie at least 3 times already in the past 8 months, but i saw the final cut last week and im so happy that all of the critics are liking it, because i loved this movie so much more than i thought i would or even wanted to. Sony did the right thing by taking this movie a completely different direction...avoiding the action-packed avengers type, and the ultra-realistic and emotionally dark nolan batmans. This film is about peter parker, spiderman, and

Well, until I see it for myself I have to deny that statement. Honestly, there's no way in hell that can be true. A lack of appreciation for a classic trilogy is NOT what should carry or weigh perceptions on a film a person should be judging on its own merit.

Marc Webb

I became interested in this film the moment I saw Marc Webb's name as the director chosen to make it. I loved the film (500) Days of Summer and was intrigued by what Webb could do with a superhero action film. Even with all the complaints about the reboot, I held out hope based on my expectations of the director, and, after seeing Andrew Garfield in The Soical Network, I knew he was more than capable to take on this role. Of course, Emma Stone has proven herself in past films as well.

Imagine Spider-Man by way of James Dean, and that's what you get here." Do frighten me a bit. I liked my Peter Parker old school and less James Deanish.
