I have to say i really liked this spiderman for many reasons, yeah its covering old ground thats only just over 10yrs old but thats fine cos this fleshes it out so much more then the old ones did. This film takes a more serious real approch to the series unlike the raimi ones did, here there's no waking up super buffed up and mastering swinging in a instance. Here everything is gradual and we see peter learning and training and making cockups plus there's no stupid natural web producing from the wrists this is proper spidey where he makes the the web shooters. Andrew garfield is also a way better peter parker he brings alot more emotion and character to it and when he's spiderman he's throwing out some classic one liners and having fun. It was great to finally see conners/lizardman finally used after teasing for 3 films, i really liked his look and it was done very well and also looked great and never bad CGI and the plus being he doesnt get killed. I think this is a great start to what can become a great series of films yeah it takes half the film to tell the story of what we already know but its done brilliantly and clearly done that way for future films.

different studio,different cast...............must admit i was sceptical.
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 villians ) 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.

  NO NEED FOR THIS FILM BUT STILL GOOD

Before i start MR GARFIELD is a better Spiderman then MR MAGUIRE but this film is not better than the 2002 Spiderman. This film is just a lead up to the 2ND film that is coming in a few years and you have to watch after the credit's have rolled to see as this is a typical Marvel trick.The villian is the LIZARD and i thought we could have seen more of the villian but what i saw good.The 3D was brill and i hope this converts to my 3D TV.For me this is the 2nd best comic book film of the year behind THE AVENGERS as for "rubbish man sorry i meant batman" that 3 film franchise was spoiled bye some director i shall not name and should never be called comic book films.

  The same, but different.

Spiderman rebooted, maybe too soon for some, but after 3 killed the otherwise great trilogy with a terrible script, and just too much going on for its own good, they have a chance to get things going again. For me it was different enough not to be bored, the characters and acting were all great, and the overall movie (experience) was fantastic. the only downside was the 3D, I think it could have been used to better effect.
5 stars, enjoy.

  UN-NEEDED REBOOT BUT VERY WELL DONE!

When I heared they were rebooting the Spider-Man series I could not understand why, as there was nothing wrong with the original trilogy.... well the first two anyway. But although the over blown Spider-Man 3 was only released five years prior to this , on reflection the original Sam Rami movies do show their age in certain places, it's not the special effects that date the three it's actually they feel a little corney as a perfect example is in Spider-man part 2 with the freeze frame at the end of the rain drops keep falling on my head sequence, it fitted the films fine back then but now especially after the Dark Knight's they feel out of place with the rescent Marvel universe. So to go back and take the story in a new direction now seems a good idea.
This Spider-Man is the one for this decade as it's played pitch perfect, he's a geek but not the same geek as in the previous films as times change and what's geeky now is different to what was uncool a decade ago. This is a film that does not let the action get in the way of well written characters and both the leads are excellent. The film is darker in tone, but as usual there are lighter moments especially when Peter Parker gets all cocky with his new powers. The tragedy in Parker's life is especially well done and you do really understand the pain. The action and effects are superb and the 3D in the cinema version was well done and not in your face. The only minor disappointment comes in the shaep of the Lizard as the film does not use this character to full advantage and would have been nice to see the human cost in the transformation of the Doctors life. But he is well realized in 3D and is the centre of some great action, but that's all he is, is a one dimentional bad guy and with a film like this setting up the characters so well it's a pity the same attention was not given to him.
But for a comic book movie the revamp is very well done if not really needed and although if you love the first three films you should not be disappointed with this and no doubt will continue the adventures for another decade.
It's a very entertaining movie but if you compare it to The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers Assemble it's not quite in their class.

  "..AWESOME.."

This is an amazing film all round, great story that covers the origin again to start with but adds a few twists to it, for a 2hr movie its very well paced with plenty of thrills and action and packed full of quality visual effects, the cast was perfect, Garfield made a very good Peter Parker, its safe to say you can forget about the last three Spiderman films this is a bigger better and more badass marvel offering, the web slinger has now found the right balance, the lizard was an awesome villain too, make sure you check this out, along side the avengers 2012 has been pretty sweet for comic book movies!! This also has to be the most perfect use for 3D in a while with all the swinging around its top notch!!

If teenage angst is your thing then you'll love this, if however you are after a superhero movie with a bit of a kick then stick with Batman and Iron Man. Although all the character leads are played perfectly i frequently found myself quite bored and even the arrival of a frenetic half hour didnt quench my thirst for some action, in places the quality of the CGI (especially that of the lizard) was below that of the previous couple of Raimi directed movies. Even the 3D wasnt that impressive with very few standout moments. Maybe this is the precursor to something much bigger and better... I hope so...
