Pretty good, Garfield plays a good Spider-Man. Recommended for super hero fans.

I was worried coming before watching this reboot. I heard that it wasn't very good. But after watching this for myself, it was pretty solid in my mind!

Although it is not as good as the original with Tobey McGuire, The Amazing Spider Man is a great movie that gives more information on Peter`s dad than the original. Garfield is a better Spider Man but Tobey is a better Peter.

The best spider man movie so far.

It's okay. Andrew Garfield looks far too old for High School, but he's a little better at nailing Spider-man's personality than Tobey. I appreciate that they finally covered The Lizard, but part of me will always wonder what Spider-man 4 with the Lizard would've been like.

The Amazing Spider Man is often messy, but is still a blast and Andrew Garfield plays Spider man perfectly.

This is awesome! The first one I watched was Spider-Man with Tobey Maguire, but that pales in comparison. This one was a lot better, and with a cuter Peter Parker :):)

It was good but not as good as the first 3 from Sam Raimi.

Great action movie. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Has great romantic scenes. Recommended. (Has some brief language).

Recently bitten by a special spider, Peter Parker begins to practice with his newly formed powers. He decides that he should become the city’s hero; Spider-Man. In between fighting criminals and being with his new found love, Gwen Stacy, Peter has many things on his webbed hands. Thinking that this is as hard as it’s going to get, Peter is faced with a stronger, powerful challenge. Soon he faces a villain that has just recently been formed in the city; Electro, a man who uses electricity as his powers. Soon, his old friend Harry Osborne visits and Peter realizes that the most powerful villains he has been facing have one thing in common; Oscorp. What will happen? Will Peter be the real hero in the end after all? Or will he be defeated by the villains that are far more powerful than he is?
I personally think that this was a great movie but also a very sad one. There was a lot of emotion in just one movie and the end was far more heart-breaking than I had expected it to be. Peter Parker, a.k.a Spider-Man was the person who this movie revolves around; his family, girlfriend, school, and much more. At the end, everyone ends up being in shock after what they just saw because of the way the movie pulls you in and leaves you speechless. The title also goes good with the movie because this movie is about Spider-Man and he is also amazing; The Amazing Spider-Man.

Andrew Garfield makes a VERY good Spider-man. Very witty and clever. As for Peter Parker though? Not so much.

Peter Parker is originally portrayed to be a "nerd" but Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker is too "cool" in the movie. I don't feel that underdog persona from Peter Parker in the movie compared to when Tobey McGuire played the character.

Other than that though, it was a fairly good movie. It doesn't have a storyline that gets you thinking deep (which is great for when you just want to chill and relax), and thus wouldn't hurt to give it a try.

This is a 2012 American superhero film directed by Marc Webb, based on the Marvel Comics character Spider-Man.
It is the fourth theatrical Spider-Man film produced by Columbia Pictures and Marvel Entertainment.
The film tells the story of Peter Parker, a teenager from New York City who becomes Spider-Man after being bitten by a genetically altered spider.
Parker must stop Dr. Curt Connors as a mutated Lizard from spreading a mutation serum to the city's human population.
Although the visual effects are superb, the idea of a mutated lizard is too absurd to believe.
The idea of a spider-man is also too far-fetched to believe, but it would be more understandable and acceptable compared to Dr. Curt Connors who turns into a mutated giant lizard, which is utterly foolish and ridiculous beyond suspension of disbelief.

Best version of Spider-man I've seen. Best Peter Parker too. Also loved Amazing Spider-man 2!

Another sad case of rerunitus. As others say, "poor special effects, uninteresting villain" etc.
Even past all that it stinks because half the fun of spiderman is the contrast between hopeless loser secret identity and Spiderman. This actor is literally just too cute for the job.
Strictly for 12 year olds.

Poor casting, poor special effects, uninteresting villain... And half the movie is retelling Peter Parker's origin which was done much better (and more concise) in Spider-man 1. I get that they wanted a reboot, but it wasn't fun or energetic... And the cartoonish look to the film is baffling to me. How can special effects from a decade earlier look far superior? And Emma Stone is still in high school? Hollywood needs to cast actors that look like they are teenagers in high school. Kids in high school don't look 30.

I enjoyed this cartoon DVD. It is too violent for children to watch.

OK for a reboot of Spider-Man. Decent storyline on the introduction of the Lizard (Dr. Connors). I was not convinced on how Peter Parker acquired his spider powers and Gwen, played by Emma Stone, was so awful. Beyond the bad acting, the movie was fair... and what's with the Spider outfit ???...

Okay critics stop, although the story had holes the movie was not THAT bad. Come on, it was entertaining and average at best.

The first of the rebooted versions of Spiderman, this time with Andrew Garfield taking over from Tobey Mc Guire as the wall crawling superhero from Stan Lee and Steve Ditko at Marvel Comics. I wasnt sure about Rhys I Fan's role of Dr. Curtis Connors at first, however I loved the Lizard character. It didnt look like it did in the comics, but maybe that's why films are a separate medium to allow for small inconsistencies. Emma Stone makes for a lovely Gwen Stacy, Peter's girlfriend. My main issue is Garfield's Peter Parker, and why I preferred Tobey's, who was more true to how Parker was in the comics. Again film is a different medium, and is all left to director's interpretation. The origin story is revisited with a different viewpoint, and the movie offers plenty of action. I did feel Martin Sheen and Sally Field were miscast as Aunt May and Uncle Ben, and didnt see them in the same light I did Cliff Robertson and Rosemary Harris. Film was missing a strong acting precense of a WIlliem Dafoe. For it's mild flaws, this one is still great.

For those who are not aware, the Amazing Spiderman is based on the comics, "The Amazing Spiderman" which differ from the older comics of "Spiderman." The movies with Toby Maguire are based on the older Spiderman comics while this title is based on the Amazing Spiderman comics. The difference is the Amazing Spiderman takes place when Peter Parker is in high school and Gwen Stacy is the main love interest as opposed to Mary Jane. If you didn't like the movie you should read the comics, they are quite good and hard to put down once you start reading them.
