Shame they only made two Andrew Garfield Spiderman films.
Verified purchase
Good film with a compelling cast.

It is a shame they never made more, but I suppose the second film got panned a bit hard. I heard the mediocre reviews about The Amazing Spiderman 2, before I watched it. When I did finally see it, I found the reviews unfair.

Yes I know I am off topic talking about the second film. However it's pretty obvious I liked this one, and I expressed my views by talking about both.

Hopefully they will bring Andrew Garfiled back for another film.

Amazing Spidey....

Another Spiderman movie, another spiderman franchise and another person playing spiderman. But oddly after the 70's spiderman movies, then the Toby Mcguire movies, you would think this would be the same old. In fact its fresher, cleaner and more fun to watch than all the others before it. This movie is hard hitting, fast paced and well made. Time to choose.....!

Very good.
Verified purchase
A good remake of the Spiderman story although doing the 'how I got bit' and the 'death of uncle Ben' storylines again was completely unnecessary but I do like the fact that they went with the Gwen Stacey character, not Mary Jane.
It's well acted by all the cast and the cgi is believable.

Disc 2 is packed with hours of behind the scenes featurettes and deleted scenes etc.

Very underrated Spiderman movie.
Verified purchase
This is actually one of my favourite Spiderman movies and certainly far better than Spiderman 3 and the Spiderboy Tom Holland movie, in my opinion, and this is probably the most faithful movie depiction of the Web slinger, and thought the soundtrack was good also, so i don't really understand some peoples negativity towards this movie.

Amazing indeed.
Verified purchase
I really enjoyed this. I'm a fan of superhero films anyway, though I'm not specifically a Spidey fan. I felt fairly unenthusiastic about the previous Spider-Man trilogy and by the third one I kind of hated Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker.

So when this reboot came along I didn't expect much, especially a reboot of a franchise so recently done-to-death.

Turns out, I really enjoyed it.

Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker is an updated version of the classic comic-book version. And I think that went a long way to making him much more relatable for me. The storyline is really well paced and whereas the previous Spider-Man often felt somewhat indulgent, this one is lean and mean in all the right places.It doesn't over-use CGI, and plays a nice hand with the way Spider develops through the inevitable "discovering powers" scenes.

Another comparison is the one-off-love between Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker and MJ, and
Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker and Gwen. Maguire's Parker made me want to slap him, repeatedly. Garfield's Parker made me genuinely feel like this guy was having to make some tough choices during/after a period of turmoil.

The Amazing Spider-Man (Blu-ray 3D + UV Copy) [2012] [Region Free] AMAZING INDEED!
Verified purchase
I have loved Sam Raimi films ever since I first watched “Evil Dead”, So I was very thrilled to hear that he would direct the Spiderman film (2002), I was excited and he delivered, Spiderman 2 is actually my favorite, but Spiderman 3 was not too good, So with the collapse of Spiderman 4 and 5 during pre – production, Raimi walked away, So then Marc Webb directs the Reboot, honestly they have been a lot of Negative’s and Positives being thrown around about the reboot, but I liked it, Webb did a very good Job with this, the 3D is not the best out there, but it ain’t the worst either, story wise I felt it was well paced.

The Blu-Ray package is very nice, it consists of 2 Blu Ray discs, the second Blu Ray disc is packed with features, this is what is not specified here on Amazon, the first disc of this set has both the 3D and 2D versions of the movie, they are both on the same disc, just pop it in and select the version you want.

The Video is flawless, Crisp and Very detailed, The Audio is well timed and detailed too.

Smart, action-packed, well-acted film, well-written film
Verified purchase
I really liked this film. More story focused than love interest focused than the Sam Raimi films. Yeah - if you want a smart, action-packed, well-acted film, well-written film then you should buy this blu ray which for me cost around £2,50.
