Web-slinging, reboot promises an exceptional cast, great visuals, and surpassing material that will heighten anticipation for it's sequels.

"The Amazing Spiderman" for definite surpasses previous Marvel misfires, (i.e. "The Incredible Hulk," "Daredevil," "Catwoman," and "Elektra.") however fails to top the "Iron Man" trilogy, "Captain America: The First Avenger," "Thor," and "The Avengers." It has plenty of of super powered comic book-style action, including cars getting thrown off of bridges, throwing heroes through walls and other assorted mayhem. A mugging leaves a shot bystander bloody and dying, and Spider-Man's first crime-fighting efforts target other muggers, who are clearly outmatched and beaten. An NYPD assault team tries to take out both Spider-Man and the Lizard, leaving the web-slinger injured and bloody. The villain impales a cop with his long claws, leaving him critically injured. Some bullying among high school students. Some flirting between Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Gwen Stacey, and a couple of romantic kisses (although not as monumental as they were in Sam Raimi's film "Spider-Man"). In the end, Spider-Man is told by her father, to keep Gwen Stacey out of it, and respecting her father regretfully informs her the can't be together anymore. However, seconds before the credits role he arrives late for class, and is told to come on schedule the next time. He promises he will, although his teacher advises him not to make promises he can't keep, he whispers to Gwen Stacey, "but those are the best." As recurrent in super hero movies, there isn't a lot of language, although there are some curse words, there infrequent and comparatively mild. The villain injects himself with a powerful drug that transforms him into a giant lizard. Overall, "The Amazing Spider-Man" is a thrilling, passionate, and often violent film unquestionably tops Sam Raimi's past success with the same topic.

Great kids movie

I LOVED THIS MOVIE!!! It was a really cute spin on a classic and super appropriate. I watched it with my little brothers and sisters and it was totally fine for them. They were so focused on the superpowers that they didn't even notice Peter Parker had a girlfriend.

The amazing spiderman has more blood than violence

The amazing spiderman is one of those films that has more blood than violence. The violence is pretty mild, but there is a large amount of blood. there are also some bullying scenes that aren't appropriate for kids. Overall the amazing spiderman is a good film, but not recommended to kids under ten.

not enough lizard in mostly satisfying superhero movie

7/10 stars. The movie needs more superhero fighting action, otherwise it's really great movie with humor, great action/music/special effects, and good acting.

The Amazing Spider-man

Amazing Spider-man is my personal favorite spider-man movie. I think it is definitely darker, scarier, and more intense than the others. The Lizard is a pretty scary villain and may be disturbing to some. There isn't much gore, but in one scene a mouse is shown eating another mouse. Spider-man gets beaten up pretty badly in some fight scenes. The Lizard's transformations are also pretty scary. I really enjoyed this movie, but it is more intense and violent than the first three, but overall it was very good.

The AMAZING Spider-Man!

The Amazing Spider-Man, the new series of movies, starts with a bang. Although the story of Peter Parker is told differently, this does not mean it lacks the excitement, and, perhaps, importance of the 2002 Spider-Man movie. Andrew Garfield compliments the role of Parker/Spider-Man, and although he is playing the same character as Tobey Maguire, perhaps they are the same person but in a sense the actor makes the character who they are. This doesn't mean that there is more violence in this movie, nor less, but it is definitely a must-see movie for EVERYONE, no matter when that time comes.

very good

Good. Not nerdy at all. No I'm serious, it's only slightly for geeks. Everyone will like it, the among of people who like comic book films like marvel is more than you think. This film is really good, not unsuitable just violent. Ish.

Action-Packed Story

Th Amazing Spider-Man is a great movie, but not as good as the first three. A tween could easily handle this. The only real issue is the violence. This action-packed story has fairly mild violence, and some brief blood. There is some mild language and very mild sexual content. I'd say 10+ can handle this. 10+

Spidey the Jerk.

It completely a-okay for young spidey fans. But fanboys will be disappointed for Andrew Garfield is no Tobey. The remake makes Spider man out to be a jerk. When Spider Man sees his own Uncle in trouble he doesn't even run to him. He treats people with no respect. He doesn't do anything to prove he is a hero but be a jerk.

3 AND A HALF STARS - Good but not as good as original.

Hi, Epicboy21 again. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is less-than-perfect, though EMMA STONE manages to save her screen-time up. So, the basic yada-yada - Spider-Man has feisty (easily angered, willing to stand up), love interest Gwen Stacy (played by the gorgeous Emma Stone), in which Peter Parker, her boyfriend (Andrew Garfield) finds this suitcase, a mysterious one, and finds mysterious photos in it. Meanwhile, he goes up to the lab and gets bitten by the spiders; this misses a whole lot. I'll list the numerous problems in this movie: i. Animal violence - three-legged mice and a mouse eating another mouse through meat. ii. Not enough Emma Stone - I wish there was more for her. iii. I wish it was longer - it was addicting. iv. Violence not impactful enough. - Violence does include a; bloody shooting, a mugging, a robbery, and, fist-fights, etc., etc., etc. v. They missed out the boxing scene altogether. vi. Not enough development for Curt Connors. vii. They cut the swinging scene short. viii. The lab scenes were too short. ix. They missed out the hallucinations scene. x. They messed it up a little bit. Anyway; For SEX/NUDITY, there's forceful kissing, a woman accidentally stripped to bra and undies, and, revealing suits, too. For VIOLENCE/GORE, there's a well-known mugging involving a stabbing, mice eating other mice, three-legged-mice, fist-fights, and, bloody wounds. PLUS, THERE'S A SEVERED TAIL THAT GROWS BACK. For PROFANITY, there's an F-word pun (mother Hubbard) that can be easily missed or not. There's also "a--". SCARINESS involves a scary monster called the Lizard-Man, and the train sequence, the mugging, the final fight, the hiding scenes, are pretty intense, too. DRUGS involves a gassing of lots of police officers; THEMES include MURDER, REVENGE, GENETIC ENGINEERING and SCIENCE EXPERIMENTING. Thankyou for reading this.

Spidey's back

Another fun spidey movie has arrived! Any fan of spider man has to watch this but there is lots of gross kissing and one bloody scene. The lizard may frighten young kids but probably not anybody 8+. The violence makes me think that it's ok for 9+ and Grade B+
