i like sider-man movies

Dec 03, 2019

This movie was good, but not my favorite Spidey Movie. Something I've always wondered is when spiderman gets bitten by a radioactive spider, does it only give him the ability of great reflexes and climbing walls? In the original, he could do that and shoot webs from this hands. But in this one and the modern one, he has to make his own webbers. I'm confused about that. But anyways, great movie.

Is this worse than the original ones, or is it better?

The Amazing Spider-Man is the first film in the second set of Spider-Man film series. It stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker instead of the previous Tobey Maguire who portrayed him in the Sam Raimi series. He does a good enough job, though the writing at times was a little of a miss on Peter Parker's character. These movies are not always held in the highest when it comes to Spider-Man movies, but I think these do a good job and are still very much worth watching. Spider-Man is brought back and rebooted. It manages to tell a good story with a new cast of villains and characters that were not found in the last set of movies. It is much more action oriented and the CGI gets an incredible boost, helping to display the world Peter Parker lives in by making it less cheesy. The movies are darker and do feel like they lack some heart, but I loved seeing Andrew Garfield wear that Spider-Man suit. The film focuses on the origins of the hero and less on Peter Parker himself, but do prepared for Spider-Man to make up for it. 3.9/5

The amazing spider-man was one of my favourite spider man franchises. Although there were 3 different movie series’s of spider-man, I always found the Andrew Garfield series to be one of my favourite. This series is about Peter making bad choices and having to pay for those choices. In this movie it shows how Peter has to learn how to work with his new abilities to save the world. And despite what everyone says about him he still saves people because he knows it is the right thing to do. The reason I like this Spider-Man the most is because it pays attention to the relationships which I think is a huge part of the Spider-Man character. Also the actors Andrew Garfield and Emma stone do an amazing job at acting out their roles. In conclusion I recommend checking out this spider-man movie to everyone. 4.7/5 Stars.

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.

Uncle Ben: "I don't think so." Peter Parker: "This is your meatloaf! ...This beats all other meatloafs!" Aunt May: "Something is very wrong." Uncle Ben: "Yeah. Nobody likes your meatloaf."
