Spider-Man is back with a reboot and although it seemed sort of early for it, Marc Webb did a great job with this film by refreshing the story and the characters. I enjoyed the first three Spider-Man films, although I wasn’t a huge fan of them. Webb not only refreshed the series, but he also improved it in my opinion by doing one thing: getting Andrew Garfield to play Peter Parker.
I noticed that if you go into this film trying to compare it to the 2002 series you’re going to be overly critical of “The Amazing Spider-Man.” That being said, in comparison to the old series I felt this one was far more visually enjoyable and the overall tone of the film was much more gripping. Andrew Garfield exceeds Tobey Maguire as the masked superhero and he portrays the character better in almost every way. He has the right amount of charisma and wit that his character needs. I loved his performance.
I rate this movie 7 / 10
