Even filters can do the same things that interceptors can but interceptors can do more easily and more elegantly.

Interceptors are more coupled to the request/response cycle than filters.

Can inject other beans in the interceptor.

Can use more advanced mapping patterns (ant-style).

You have the target handler object (controller) available, as well as the result ModelAndView object.

It is a bean, so you can use AOP with it.

The main advantage of spring framework HanderInterceptor is – that they can intercept between Controller Handling and View Rendering and they are spring Beans so it is easy to access another spring bean.
