Product Description

The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Done For What It Was April 10 2013
By Theo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The Peter Parker we find in this film is grittier, more real than one in Sam Raimi's previous trilogy. He's kind of a spaz and he looks it. The kind of guy you could easily imagine geeking out with all his geeky friends, playing World of Warcraft between hits on a bong. Not that there's anything like that in this movie (where's Harry Osborn when you need him?), but you get the idea. It's this more "real" take on Peter Parker, not quite so perky and preppy as Toby McGuire's version, that's the thing I liked most about this movie.

Other than that, there's not a huge amount to say. Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy is cute but utterly unremarkable, and so too for most of the other performances. Sally Field injects more than we are used to seeing into Aunt May, but that's about it. I'm not entirely sure that Martin Sheen was even trying. For long time spider fans, or even just those who've watched a handful of superhero summer blockbusters, this isn't a film with too many surprises. Or even, dare I say it, any surprises. It's an entertaining extravaganza, but it's not the kind of thing that very many people over the age of 15 will feel the need to see more than once. You may want to bear that in mind when making the decision whether to rent or buy.

It is worth noting that this film is clearly designed to set up a sequel, and more than likely a trilogy. There are questions raised and themes presaged that are then just left hanging within the scope of this individual movie.

The only thing I would say actively went wrong in this film was its attempt to have Spider-Man spout the kind of witty banter he uses when fighting his comic book battles. You may be able to get away with that kind of thing on the printed page.

I actually didn't really start to like this movie until the second time I saw it. Great movie. Makes me really hate those Tobey McGuire ones with all the crying and stuff. After Spider-Man 3 they really did need a reboot.

This movie is much better than the original. Good action, well-done special effects, good story-line. I enjoyed it more than Batman movies. Andrew Garfield did a great job as Peter Parker.

VIDEO (2D):

The Amazing Spider-Man arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. Unlike Raimi’s previous Spider-Man films, which featured candy coated bright colours and lots of daylight, the new director, Marc Webb, painted this picture with constant gloom that lingers over the entire film. The credit goes to the RED camera system, the first time being used, beating out Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit, but more specifically, the RED Epic, capable of filming 3D picture at 5K resolution. Textures are perfect, as furniture, skin, clothing, hair, lizard scales are all so lifelike. The depth of picture, naturally, is astonishing, from the top down looking at the floor or from standing level looking at the distance. When the Spider-Man suit is finally unveiled, the texture, the detail, and the way it gets dirty and muffed up, it's a character of its own. Black levels are superb. Nighttime exteriors are brilliantly captured, with deep, accurate blacks and perfect shadow detail all around. Flesh tones are consistently true-to-life as well. This isn't a glossy, shiny film, but it is still visual perfection and demo worthy from start to finish. (5/5)

VIDEO (3D):

The Amazing Spider-Man 3D arrives with MPEG-4 MVC encode. The transfer retains the same exacting details as found on the faultless 2D-only release. The image is notably darker. The movie was not the brightest by design in the 2D version, and the palette appears even dimmer in 3D. Colours are stable and consistent but lack much in the way of vibrancy, even in the most well-lit scenes and considering the brightest shades. It somehow lacks invigorating 3D depth and pop. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

The audio is the same for both the 3D and 2D versions, which consists of a fantastic DTS-HD 5.

3.0 out of 5 stars Forgettable: 2.5 stars Nov. 25 2013
By Michael TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Overall, I'm a fan of the trend set by Christopher Nolan and his darker edgier approach to things. Spiderman unfortunately is not a character where this approach works, at all. I understand that with it being a reboot coming out so close to the last one finishing, they needed a different look and feel. Unfortunately, I feel Spiderman should be a mostly fun movie with the drama inserted in after. This movie is the opposite with spectacular action pieces spaced between and "fun" SQUEEZED in there periodically.

The most important flaw was that I rarely cared that much about the characters- with the exceptions being Uncle Ben and Aunt May who were better than the original and a surprising Dennis Leary. There seemed to be an invisible disconnect that other than the completely lifeless sound track & Emma Stone (very talented actress) but miscast here, I couldn't quite put my finger on why it had next to no mojo.

This movie's worth one look, a shrug and maybe a 2nd to confirm that it wasn't anything special.
