one of the greatest films of this year, the long awaited reboot of the series gets bloodier and more intense than the last 3, with plenty of violence ranging from explosions, fistfights, gunfights, destruction, an impaling and shooting, and some bullying. there is a high amount of blood in this movie, with uncle bens death being the bloodiest (blood pours from his chest) and a surprising scene ith a mutant mouse splattered with blood from its half-eaten prey. otherwise, this is a perfect movie for all comic book fans.
I think that this movie brought a new life to the spider man series, comedy, action and most importantly in a movie like this, romance. Peter Parker aka Spider man goes against all odds, like bullies and bad guys to save New York, the story brings up a new and better version of Spider man. While the other more recent installments of Spider man movies where more serious than funny, the newest Spider man installments were comedy packed, like the more recent television show Ultimate Spider Man, this movie is funny and action packed while not being to serious. My whole family went to go see it including my 8 year old brother and 8 year old cousin. We all loved the movie and I can't say a bad word about it,the original movies just got knocked right out of the water because spider man made a huge improvement and comeback.
When I first heard the Spiderman franchise was going to be rebooted I was devastated. I loved Raimi's take on Spiderman and I thought Maguire was quite excellent for his role. So I was somewhat worried this film really would just not work. After watching this, I feel guilty for even suggesting that this film could be bad. It was great. First off, I need to give credit to Andrew Garfield. He was a great Peter Parker. He was more realistic than Maguire and he also was a lot more relatable as a character than Maguire ever was. Emma Stone also was a excellent Gwen Stacey. The relationship between the two characters was very realistic in a outstanding way. I also very much enjoyed the new spidey look. Spidey's new outfit looks cooler and even a bit more modern. The action sequences were also very cool and I thought the special effects were put to good use. The villain, The Lizard was all CG but I really liked him and thought he delivered as a villain. The acting was also quite amazing from basically everyone in the whole movie. One of the biggest problems people have with this movie is the fact it plays somewhat similar than the original Spiderman from 2002. I admit that it does play similar from the original but the way the story was told and delivered made it very exciting and fun to watch. So really, that isn't a problem. And you also have to give the film credit. It has to be pretty hard to make a reboot and make the story completely original. If I really have any problem at all it would be there were a couple of somewhat over the top senes but besides that the film was really good. The Amazing Spiderman was a wonderful film that really stood up to all the hype. This film truly is quite amazing.
This movie is amazing and good to share with your family. Unlike the first three, this one manages to stay with the comics. Like the web shooters and Gwen Stacy being his first girlfriend. But this is a bit darker themed and more serious for sure. It still adds in humor though. The violence definatly add another age level. There is a brief scene of a bloody gun shot, intense Lizard vs Spider- Man battles, and some pop out scares. The action scenes are amazing though with great CGI and practical effects. The web slinging is pretty cool too! Andrew Garfield is better as Peter than Toby McGuire and Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy is so much better than Mary Jane in the first 3. There is just one scenes where Spidey pulls off a womans top on accident and a couple of kisses and thats about it. I just saw it in 2d at midnight so I cant give you any take on the 3d. A great reboot of the Spidey series and worth watching.
