Columbus Alive

Is 'The Amazing Spider-Man' amazing? Yes. But get ready to get caught in a web of recent nostalgia.

This reboot works with a freshness and seriousness that was often missing from the 2002 Tobey Maguire film.

The primary effect of this movie to keep conjuring up better movies.

Film Comment Magazine

This umphundredth origin story of a nerdy outsider turned unlikely crime fighter is surprisingly enjoyable.

The Patriot Ledger

Other than recasting and swapping out love interests for the spindly web-slinger, there's nothing here that wasn't there 10 years ago in the original.

Sacramento Bee

The bigger standouts are scenes of character transformation. these moments alone are worth the price of admission. They are the reason to keep seeing summer blockbusters on a big screen. There are few new ideas, but still plenty of new thrills.

One of the ten best films of 2012.

Austin American-Statesman

The recasting works. If Maguire is the Spider-Man of Spidey co-creator Steve Ditko, this is the Spider-Man of artist John Romita: a little slicker, a little more modern. Spider-Man in skinny jeans, if you will.

Toledo Blade

For a superhero origin film, it's pretty good, but it's hardly amazing.

Ali Gray

It's almost impossible to watch the film without thinking of what could have -- and what already has -- been, therefore it's extremely difficult to enjoy on its own merit.

Rob Gonsalves

I go to a Spider-Man movie to see the guy duke it out with powerful bad guys. I'm simple that way. I don't need a welter of convolutions.

Daily Star

This edgier Parker feels a more believable alter-ego - closer to the wise-cracking, ass-kicking hero from the comics and early animated TV series.

James Plath
Movie Metropolis

"The Amazing Spider-Man" isn't as dramatically revisionist as Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins," but it's as good as Raimi's first "Spider-Man" film and darker, while still being tongue-in-cheek. That's a tough tone to master.

Cinema Crazed

A superior film that promises to age better than Sam Raimi's films...

The potential is there for a much bigger, better, Spider-Man movie universe to come, even if this movie doesn't fully realize that potential.

The Aristocrat

We all know that Spider-Man 3 sucked, but did it have to come to this? A 'one strike and you're out' policy? I would have taken a Raimi/Maguire Spider-Man 4 over this retread any day.

Shotgun Critic

Not quite 'amazing' then, but there will always be a deserving audience for rock-solid superhero movies done with this kind of heart and care.

Jonathan Lack
We Got This Covered

The Amazing Spider-Man may be a reboot, but it feels entirely fresh thanks to a strong, different interpretation of the Spider-Man mythos and tremendous performances from the excellent ensemble.

After the film's runtime of over two hours, you may be surprised how little of it sticks with you.
