5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic reboot to the Spider-Man franchise!, November 9, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Amazing Spider-Man (+ UltraViolet Digital Copy) (DVD)
I honestly don't know that a reboot to this movie license was necessary at this point in time, but we got it anyway. thankfully, this new version of Spider-Man is just as good (or even better, as I see it) as Sam Raimi's version was. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone make for some fairly believable high school students, if a bit too witty at times. Spider-Man's new costume looks great, and I am so glad that we no longer have to look at those silly "organic" web-shooters that Peter Parker (Toby Maguire) had in the Sam Raimi trilogy. Instead, we get to see kid-genius Peter Parker develop his own version of the web-shooters and learn to use them as a spider would. Great stuff!

Rhys Ifans does a great job as scientist Doc Conners and villain The Lizard. The Lizard is more believable and more scary than any of the Spidey villains in the previous movies, and the action scenes that focused on this characters were, likewise, better than the action scenes featured in the other Spider-Man films.

I saw this movie in the theater with my 11-year old son, and we both really enjoyed it. I knew right then that it would be a movie I would want to purchase on video, and I think you would too!
