The Amazing Spider-Man is fun but by no means does it live up to its hype.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 18, 2017
... the rebooted franchise action film is so much more than the sum of its very adept and tantalizing parts.
September 11, 2017
As far as new beginnings go, this is a pretty good start. The Amazing Spider-Man injects some new life into the superhero story.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

It has the talent, the already endearing subject, but fails to deliver on the promise it had before.

When (if) this movie comes to mind a few years down the line, I imagine I'll be thinking less about any specific scene than the fact that it has so much wasted potential.

Leaner and meaner with a touch of Bruce Lee, the spider suit's finally right: the eyes dangerous, webbing weaponized. Garfield looks more like the illustrated Peter Parker.

The film is lively because of Andrew Garfield, who makes Spider-Man reckless, dashing, humorous.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" plays things agonizingly safe, and while the film isn't without a heartbeat, its failure to take any chances keeps it from flight.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

The Amazing Spider-Man deserves two and a half cheers. Its physics are cartoonish and its metaphysics are nonexistent, but it's a teen-pic with a brain, and that's worth celebrating.

I felt, with this film, that the use of 3D was actually exhilarating.

Just when you think this whole superhero business means the end of civilization as we know it, along comes a glimmer of hope. The Amazing Spider-Man, amazingly, lives up to its billing.
July 14, 2015
While it never soars to the heights of Raimi's first two films, it manages to be at once exhilarating, hilarious and bold.
Full Review | Original Score: B
July 14, 2015
The story works hard to integrate various elements from Spidey's history, and the score works even harder to let you know what you should be feeling at any given moment.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Although less than amazing, The Amazing Spider-Man is still plenty good enough to deliver big grins, thrills and a welcome tug on the heartstrings.
July 14, 2015
Thanks to this stellar retelling, Andrew Garfield's spin will be going global.

Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 still reigns as the supreme Spider-Man movie adventure, but Marc Webb's energized reboot The Amazing Spider-Man has its own set of attractive super powers.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
July 14, 2015
Thankfully, Webb's Peter Parker/Spider-Man is played by Andrew Garfield (whom you last saw in The Social Network), who is fully up to the task.

The only thing amazing about Marc Webb's reboot is how quickly a Hollywood studio can forget the lessons its own films have taught it.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.9/10
July 14, 2015
The Amazing Spider-Man isn't so amazing, actually, and is a reboot of a remake, or a remake of a reboot, or a remake rebooted, and remade, rebootingly.
July 14, 2015
If you've never seen 2002's Spider-Man you may be more forgiving to this one, but comparisons favour the former in almost every respect.
