Product Description

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.

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 guess it’s never too late to write a review for a movie, after seeing the first three previous “Spider-Man”
movies, and how Toby McGuire's perky but more reserved character work so well, now Andrew Garfield” give
us almost the same continuation factor, that I love actually, it’s hard when you stop movies when they have sequels
to come, then you get new actors for the next one, my first impression with Mr. Garfield at the helm was pretty impressive,
I don’t think he wanted to impress us to the point of overdoing it, which is very good on his part, don’t think it’s
hard to overdo the spidery-wet suit caper man of web, all his villainy characters do a fine job of that,

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.

Perfecta edición y a un precio inmejorable en su momento (13 euros). La figura es excelente. El único fallo que es latino pero yo ya tenia la edición en castellano.

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.

Really good 3D DVD. More of a love story but still had lots of good effects and a good story line. Highly recommend it.

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.
