Overlong B-movie with CGI-cluttered second half which 'jumps the shark' - The Amazing Spider-Man review by PV

Spoiler Alert
05/01/2013

I really disliked this film. It starts OK - some nice scenes of Peter Parker discovering his powers - but after that? Oh dear. Just another CGI computer game for hyperactive teenage boys - and when the lizard man appeared and started talking, I really saw a 'jump the shark' moment.

It's a shame really, because there are some good lines in the script.

But I think the actor who plays spiderman is not a patch on Tobey Macguire.

The second half of this movie really is boring - I can almost hear the scriptwriters saying 'let's up the jeopardy again...and again...and again...' I was looking at my watch over and over again.

Watch through the credits to see a little snippet shamelessly setting up a sequeal - which I truly hope is never made.

And - typically - a Brit actor and accent signifies a villain. Racism, really, and lazy cliche.

This first half of this movie gets 3 stars' the second half less than 1. So 2 stars average.

The Annoying Spider-Man - The Amazing Spider-Man review by RP

Spoiler Alert
15/01/2013

Well, over the last few days I've seen three of 2012's comic-based superhero 'blockbuster' movies: 'Avengers Assemble', 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and 'The Dark Knight Rises'. And - from low to high - that's my order of preference.

The problem with this film is that's it's yet another remake - and by definition, that makes it not very original. I couldn't help but make continuous comparisons with the 2002 version directed by Sam Raimi with Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker / Spider-Man.

The 2012 version is directed by Marc Webb with Andrew Garfield in the lead role - and frankly, he's just not nerdy enough for his transformation into Spider-Man to be very interesting. Given that there's 10 years difference between the two films you'd expect the effects to be better. They are - I think - or at least they're bigger, but also more annoying. In fact I found the whole film to be annoying, from the silly too-good-looking, badly acted girlfriend to events like a procession of tower cranes helping Spider-Man swing across town.

Nope, I didn't like it much and at 2 hours 10 minutes it's far, far too long. I know it's taken lots of money at the box office, but I can only give it 2/5. It is slightly better than the poor 'Avengers Assemble' but it doesn't deserve any higher rating from me :(

Just not as good - The Amazing Spider-Man review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
21/09/2013

This movie is a world apart from the original Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. Poorly acted throughout with a weak story line. The effects are not much better than any other high budget movie and certainly not much better than Spider-Man. Spiderman cartoons are more interesting than this movie. This goes to show that even good effects cannot save a movie. There is nothing new in this movie, you have seen them all before in fact much better (Spider-Man trilogy).

I would rather watch Spider-Man again than see the sequel to this movie.

It is difficult not to compare this with Spider-Man. Making this movie was a risk and sadly Marc Web has failed to produce anything equal let alone better. It is a shame because I thought 500 days of Summer was well-made and very watchable. Marc Web should perhaps go back and make similar movies and leave the scene of superheroes for other directors.
