Acting was good, effects were great.

It just didn't seem to capture my attention and by the time things began to pick up, I was looking at my watch to see how much time was left before the movie ended.

I really liked the first three Spider Man movies, and so thought we might enjoy this one too - boy was I wrong!

I read a lot of reviews for this movie before watching it myself. In the end, they all boiled down to a few basic criticisms, which I kept in mind as I made my own appraisal. Here are the major problems people seem to have had with Marc Webb's "Amazing Spider-Man", along with my responses.

1. The reboot was too soon.

This more or less depends on your point of view. True, the last Spidey movie was in 2007, a mere five years ago - more than long enough to warrant another Spider-Man film; not exactly long enough to call for a complete reboot. On the other hand, I think a lot of people would agree that it's been more like eight years since the last GOOD Spider-Man film. I loved Raimi's work with the character, though I do criticize him on some minor points. But in the end, he really dropped the ball with Spider-Man 3, running a lot of good characters into the ground and painting himself into a corner with two hours of very messy plotting. In the end, whether a reboot was necessary per se is a matter of personal preference. But even if you think it wasn't necessary, is it fair to write off the new movie completely as a result? I don't believe it is.

2. We've heard it all before.

Yes and no. This is another interpretation of Spider-Man's origin story. But it's very different from Raimi's first Spider-Man film. More importantly, it's a well-done interpretation. At the heart of this "origin story" is Peter Parker's development from a somewhat geeky, trouble-making teen into a true hero. This transition happened far more quickly in Raimi's first movie, mainly because Maguire's Peter had a more strongly-developed moral compass to begin with.

After watching the first five minutes of The Amazing Spiderman, I knew I was gonna like it; after the first hour (which includes a lot of exposition without being tedious) I actually preferred this one to the Raimi versions mainly cuz I think it possesses an intensity and believability that the previous films lacked.

Marvel seems to be producing more mature, rebooted versions of all their super-hero series and I actually prefer this variation on the Spider Man story as well, especially the disappearance of the pointless Mary Jane obsession (which always made me respect Spidey a little less). I suspect that a more scientifically savvy audience appreciates an ever evolving origins story and I also enjoyed the initial dealing-with-new-superpowers interlude which was very amusing and again just seemed a much more realistic reaction from Peter Parker to his new abilities. Exceptional performances for Peter and Gwen are what truly make this production stand out from every other action-packed big-budget flick out there, not to mention a truly scary and menacing super-villain causing some sequences to play a little like a horror film. The tragic loss of his uncle is intensely emotional making the motivation for becoming a vigilante seem more credible, while the use of fantasy tech to supplement his powers added to this as well. love Martin Sheen as uncle Ben, never been much of a Sally Fields fan but apparently the producers were looking for star power to offset the use of mostly unknowns in the starring roles (which I think was a stroke of brilliance by the way).

The FX action sequences are seamless, gorgeous, captivating and again convincing (hitting on this alot I know but I think it's an essential factor).

The best spider man movie out there. This movie makes the old ones look like a joke. Great story line and excellent combo package. Worth the money.

I thought they did a fine job retelling Spiderman's origin here. It was very good job and I don't understand the one star reviews for a A list movie of this caliber. My only complaints are the fact that the film should have been shot in 3d and not redone in 3d in post production. It's a dark movie picture wise and the 3d version is even darker than the 2d version! ,
and native 3d will always look far batter than movies shot in 2d and processed in 3d. It looks similar to "John Carter' in way the 3d looks. which is good but not the same as a native 3d film looks. That's a small gripe considering they did a fine job on this film in everything else. There's a lot of criticism about the way the lizard looks. He looks better in the comic books. Sure, but he looks good in this film too. And did we need it to be rebooted? , probably not this early but it still worked for me. And it's a big budget film that makes it points well. It was good to see spiderman back in high school and having to deal with flash tompson. IN the comics Flash becomes 'man wolf' and spiderman must battle him. But that's another story. The film hopefully will have a sequel someday and let's hope they shoot it in 3d! It makes a huge difference on how well the 3d film will look. The blu ray comes with a whole disc of extras. And for those with 2d TV's the film looks just about the same , but with less depth. I would say" if you love superhero films then this one is a very good one. Few fans hated this as compared to 'the green hornet' , or 'green lantern' , both of which were decent but not great. With 'green hornet' being a part comedy at that. This is above them by leaps and bounds, although I did enjoy those films as well.
