The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)





1 out of 10 The amazingly thin script
A member from Dublin, 31 Jul 2013
If you liked SMan in 2002, don't watch this. With this "reboot" expect the same scenario, more/less the same dialogue("it's not a choice, it's responsibilities !")...rmmm deja vu... On top of that, the really unnecessary journalists in the movie keeping you aware of what's going on "oh my I don't know what is crawling on this building but it's big and angry" "Spiderman is wounded, we don't know if he'll make it" - really?? The start was promising and the actors are good except R Ifans who is absolutely not credible. I expected "it's me, Spikey" any seconds. No place for that mad scientist role. Anyway... 2 stars for the acting and the beginning but the rest is amazingly thin and boring. give it a miss

2.5 out of 10 Not so amazing
Darragh from Meath, 01 Feb 2013
Overall the film does what it says on the tin, good visuals, good acting, good stunts. Not a massive fan of Garfield so felt he wasn't the best spiderman in the world but for those who may of not seen the originals (they weren't that long ago) he may be just for you. Saying that, this film doesn't provide anything new to the mix, same story, same characters more or less, alot of unplausible events. Therefore begs to wonder why they bothered to do a re-make if it's going to be exactly the same. Entertaining to a degree but nothing spectacular.

4.5 out of 10 Very Very Good
Seamus from Monaghan, 02 Feb 2013
Okay. So a few times I found I had to remind my self this isn't Toby Maguire. The story is, in my opinion, better told her. The characters are more believable and it also flows better. I enjoyed the film a lot.

I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. Worth the re-boot and Garfield is very good in the role.
