'The Amazing Spider-Man' which was released this Friday, has got rave reviews from the critics .
The comic-movie book 'Spider-Man' was first adopted on the big-screen in 2002 with Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco in the lead roles. Director Sam Raimi released two more sequels of 'Spiderman' in 2004 and 2007.
However, due to some reasons the fourth instalment of Spider-Man franchise got stopped, following the cancellation Sony Pictures announced that the upcoming Spider-Man movies will be rebooted with a new director and star-cast.
The latest Amazing Spider-Man movie directed by Marc Webb features Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans in the lead roles. The good news is that critics have rated the film well.
Rajeev Masand of CNN-IBN wrote in his review that 'Amazing Spider-Man' deserves to be watched. He gave three-and-a-half stars out of five on his rating scale. "You'll be surprised by how warm and funny it is. Definitely deserves a watch!" writes Masand.
"Despite its faults - the standard-issue storyline, the 138-minute running time, a thankless role for Irrfan Khan, and the gratuitous 3D - this reboot of the Spider-Man saga rests almost entirely on the romance between its leads. Indeed, Garfield and Stone alone make this movie worth your time," he added.
Sanjukta Sharma of LiveMint.Com also said "this Spider-Man film worth the watch."
"So don't expect a Spider-Man whose battles are bigger, more complex or more interesting. This is perhaps not a movie for fans of the comic, as much as for lovers of college romance. Garfield's Spider-Man has the girl, and she herself won't have it any other way," wrote Sharma.
Robbie Collin of Telegraph has given four out of five stars for 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and said "the movie is primarily aimed at women but has enough blockbuster testosterone to satisfy thrill-seekers of either sex."
"If anything, it's Spidey, not Gwen, who slots most comfortably into the love interest role: while Raimi got fanboys drooling with Kirsten Dunst in a rain-soaked vest top, Webb's leading lady remains clothed and dry. Instead, the camera ogles Garfield, whose glutes are showcased quite magnificently in his skintight bodysuit. Enough superhero films are produced for teenage boys who used to dress up in Spider-Man pyjamas. At last, here's one for an entirely different audience, whose other halves may soon be dressing up in Spider-Man pyjamas for their benefit," writes Collin.
Rashid Irani reviewing 'The Amazing Spider-Man' for Hindustan Times, has given three-and-a-half stars. "Fasten your seatbelts and get set to soar on a techno-thrill ride with The Amazing Spider-Man," he wrote.
"What makes The Amazing Spider-Man most compelling is the impeccable casting. Andrew Garfield, who was so impressive in The Social Network, generates tremendous empathy for the soulful Spidey. Emma Stone is vivacious as his blonde bombshell classmate. The young leads share cracking chemistry. Veterans Sally Field and Martin Sheen lend warmth to their small but pivotal roles of the boy's guardians," he added.
Vinayak Chakravorty of India Today has also given three-and-a-half stars for 'The Amazing Spider-Man'. He feels that "the movie is very much what defines the jingbang of follow-up flicks in Hollywood and loaded with smarter SFX and a little more edgy than what you have already seen."
"If the story is predictable, director Marc Webb presents it as an intense action drama balanced with technical gloss and tongue-in-cheek humour. Most of the first half plays out like a teenybopper flick when Parker is shown coming to terms with his superpowers. The 3D marvel really takes over in the second half when it is time for action," wrote Chakravorty.
"The Amazing Spider-Man" begins on the similar plot like that of the first Spiderman movie. The protagonist played by Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker gets bitten by a genetically modified spider, which gives him spider-like abilities that he eventually uses to fight the battle against evil as a superhero to save the world.
However, the latest spider-hero flick has lot of emotional scenes - more than other series.
