SPIDER-MAN Not So AMAZING? The Reviews Are In!

Spider-man Reviews Not Amazing - Latest Entertainment News


After debuting in the U.S. and U.K., the feedback on the ‘The Amazing Spider-Man‘ has been good, despite the reboot coming so soon after the big screen trilogy movies starring Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst!


The movie has long been expected to be a big commercial success, and that will only look more likely now given that many of the critics have come out in support of it, and TOMORROW’S NEWS agrees!

The U.K.’s Guardian wrote:

“The casting is just right. As if moving back in time, Andrew Garfield is the Spidey Sean Connery, as opposed to Tobey Maguire’s Roger Moore.”


But what does the U.S. think of a British actor playing an American superhero?CNN apparently can’t get enough of Garfield, as they wrote:

“At 28, Garfield’s slightly older than Maguire was when he played Peter Parker in 2002, but his combination of fresh-faced innocence, nervous agitation and wry humor is immediately appealing.”


However the press in New York haven’t taken completely to Marc Webb‘s vision of the city’s famous web-slinging crime fighter, as The New York Times writes:

“Mr. Webb’s Spider-Man movie works only because he keeps the whole package, at least until the requisite final blowout, tethered to his two appealing leads.”


And the New Yorker wrote:

“The idea that to be rendered superhuman is neither some sombre moral privilege nor a queasy Faustian temptation but a prelude to ungovernable slapstick might be just what the genre needs.”


As far as we’re concerned, ‘The Amazing Spider-Man‘ has out-classed the Tobey Maguire trilogy, and this movie has helped to breathe new life into a tired franchise!

    I don’t read reviews or pay attention to them very much. I did enjoy this, and I saw a sexy side to Andrew Garfield in this film. Very nice! 🙂

    I hope the Americans didn’t mind a Brit playing the role of a New York superhero?

    Forget the reviews! Andrew Garfield was great as Spider-man – even though he is British.

    Ok, so this won’t win many Oscars, but it was a good film, which I believed was even better than the first 3 films.

    It wasn’t that bad, but it wasn’t that great either. The Lizard involved too much CGI, but Rhys Ifans was good in the role.
