And another thing .. Ugly:
Unless the film is 5 hours long, we MUST have seen all the action sequences in the trailers by now. I mean really guys. How many different 2 minute trailers have we seen now?
We get the picture. Quit it!
I have to agree; I loved the extended trailer/preview that was show on IMAX before the screening of 'Prometheus' that I saw but it felt like they are pushing it too hard.

I do wonder if those in charge of trailers ever think because I often hear people complain that trailers show too much, especially in the last few years, and yet the pattern continues!

That is longer than I expected the film to be!

Strangely I normally have had days off work to go to see big comic book films like Thor,Captain America and The Avengers as soon as they come out in the past.However I'm really not that excited about Spiderman so I will properly see it but a few days after it is released!
Hate the idea of this movie still, the closer it gets the more I know it will suck.
I feel the opposite: I didn't think it was a good idea to re-boot so soon and the first trailer was underwhelming but each subsequent trailer has made me more excited about it especially as a long time Spider-man fan.

Yes Peter seems a bit too emo but I loved the awkward teenage scene shown in the IMAX trailer/preview and the action sequences shown, the dynamism and realism of the webswinging and movement is just fantastic.

My friend saw the extended preview before Promotheus and he was very annoyed as he felt it showed too much.I missed it as I saw Promotheus in 2D.I agree that they are pushing Spiderman too much especially compared to the approach of The Dark Knight Rises.I get the feeling that the studio are really worried about Spiderman as they have got a lot of money on it and don't want it too fail.Appartently some reviews have leaked onto twitter and have not been that positive!

I agree, there was too much shown in the IMAX preview but from that footage, the clips and the trailers I'm pretty hopeful that it will turn out well. I've not seen anything yet regarding reviews but I've decided to avoid any more spoiling!

Some twitter reviews say its on par with Avengers and is better than the emotional content is better than Raimi's. The majority seem to be positive only a few are negative,

This is the article I read about the reviews on Moviehole.net

"The first media screenings for “The Amazing Spider-Man” – Note : I believe those who were participating in the junket were only allowed access to these particular screenings, unless, of course, they were lucky enough to be snuck into a screening – were held last week in the U.S.
While I’ve personally heard mixed reports, with a couple of tougher critics even comparing it to the comic-book catastrophe “Spider-Man 3″, most of the word on the various website Forums & Twitter seem to be bordering on the positive (well, most). By-and-large, sounds like it’ll be a fun movie in the least, and offer something different from the previous “Spider-Man” films.

Now, first of all, we won’t be linking to any Twitter statuses nor posts in forums where those that have seen the media discuss it or offer up their verdict. We will simply say..

The Critics : Seems some critics thought it was hokey and a bit messy (some even comparing it to “Spider-Man 3″) with a couple of my personal favourite writers really despising it. The not-as-tough blogger seemed to enjoy it, however. Interesting to note that those that weren’t huge fans of the Sam Raimi “Spider-Man” movies are enjoying this one more so than others – likely because that something ‘different’ that it offers is what they’ve been hoping for in a Spidey movie. At the same time, those that were never fans of Tobey Maguire in the role, love Andrew Garfield. Garfield apparently makes the role his own by bringing a lot of charm and dorkish humour to the role of Parker. Those same writers also claimed it’s storyline goes a lot “deeper” than anything in the first three “Spider-Man” movies, particularly the back-story of the parents. Visual effects have also been commended.

The Non-Critic : The common comic-book fan who got into see the film (by one means or another) enjoyed it. Most positive notes have been for Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans and the amount of back-story in there about Peter’s parents. Apparently the movie even encompasses a couple of surprise character cameos. The film’s 3D, as well as the ‘first person’ way they’ve shot the ‘swinging’ scenes, and the big inevitable battle between Spidey and The Lizard is apparently one of the more entertaining superhero movie fight sequences, according to most. The public that have so far seen it seem to agree that it’s on par with “The Avengers”.

Finally, nearly everyone agrees that the only way to see this thing – because of the effects and the first-person ‘swinging’ – is in IMAX. Nice plug for those big screens!

There’s an embargo on all reviews of “The Amazing Spider-Man” for a couple of weeks, so until then… just hold out hope that your favourite writer, lucky enough to have seen it, is on the money with their advance verdict!"

So from the early screenings it seems to have divided ciritcs and the public!

Oh well. Looks like it's a mixed bag. Same as Prometheus. Same as Men In Black 3. The Avengers has been the only blockbuster to receive wholly positive reviews. All that's left is The Dark Knight Rises. Bring it on!

Not having Kristen Dunst is an automatic plus for
any film IMO.

It's screened in Belgium and by all accounts it's a pretty good movie. Here's a review (does contain spoilers):

I have to admit I wasn't impressed when I saw the trailer. I'm sure I'll give it a go as I'm a marvel fan but I might wait until the opening hype dies down

The latest trailer looked pretty good to me but a) I still dont think rebooting so soon was a good idea, especially as most people know Spideys origin story and b) I'm fed up of seeing all the action scenes, quick cut in the trailer - theres no need

The SFX is positive and refers to it harking back to Lee/Ditko Spidey and that's excellent

will catch this, but not rushing.
I wonder if it gets negative reviews or doesn't make a 1BN$$, will they reboot it again?!
The latest poster artwork is almost the same as the last lot of poster art

It has some negative reviews from the comic book and cult sites. There won't be another re-boot since I expect it to do reasonably well and hopefully that will lead to more interesting story telling in future films; the negative reviews from the areas I mentioned refer a lot of the rather 'safe' way that the writers have gone with this one.

It has a 75% Rotten Tomato on Critic Reviews and 84% on Audience (normal people) reviews so it doesn't seem too bad although it is early days.

Personally I am looking forward to it because I always felt the other films were done incorrectly and Macguire wasn't quite right for me. So hopefully this one will correct the little niggles I had with the films.

A friend of mine who is a massive comic book fan saw it about 2 weeks ago (he works at a cinema and they had some kind of special advanced screening which he attended) and his opinion of the film is that it is "essentially Spidey Begins, with added wit, but not up to the same standard as The Avengers or TDK, although it's still a very solid film and easily the best Spidey film" which coming from him is quite high praise. Personally, i'd take his opinion anyday over the countless critics who seem to be bashing it due to it being a reboot. I'm seeing it tomorrow afternoon in IMAX, looking forward to it.

EDIT: Infact, here's his blog review if you fancy reading the opinion of regular fan rather than a critic who's being paid:
