The Amazing Spiderman

Hello everyone,

A few weeks ago, I watched The Amazing Spiderman, but I held off writing the review because I would be watching TDKR soon.

Overall, this was an enjoyable movie for the most part. I didn't really like or understand the ending, but it was still a pretty good movie. There were many good actors, such as Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, two great rising actors. Other older actors include Martin Sheen and Sally Field. I think the acting was great, Garfield played an awkward teenager almost perfectly. I am not a real fan of comic books, so I thought the story was just okay. I thought it was a bit hyperbolic, but I won't say anything so that I don't ruin the movie for anyone. I think this movie was overshadowed by TDKR, and it deserves more attention. I liked the fight scenes and the cockiness of the new Spiderman. Unfortunately I had less than pleasant neighbors in the movie theater, which ruined some of the experience for me. I didn't really pay much attention to the soundtrack, but I'm guessing it was decent.

I'll give this movie a 7.5/10. If you like superhero movies, this is great for you. It's also pretty appropriate for the whole family, except for a few references to adult topics. Go watch this movie!


  1. I haven`t seen it yet. Seriously, I'm not expecting that much for this version, I won't be the same without Tobey

  2. I'm interested to see what this movie turns out like, but like the above guy said, I'm just so used to seeing Tobey that I'm not sure I'll be able to watch the series without considering it just a rehash of what came before; maybe just me, but I'll try to give it a fair shot, at least.

  3. Honestly I was a little disappointed with this reboot. I mean the fight scenes were amazing no doubt very spidey like with all the use of agility. Also I like that they stated closer to the original story with Gwen Stacy and Peter developing his web shooters at first. But the rest of the movie, pretty much every scene that wasn't a fight scene was just weird and awkward to me. It all felt cheesy and I just really didn't like Andrew Garfield as the lead, he doesn't fit this part IMO. But as I said before I really enjoyed the fights so I hope I'll enjoy the sequel more and hopefully Garfield can become a better Peter Parker. Last minor gripe, in the school scene where uncle Ben meets Gwen Peter has a skateboard in his
