The Amazing Spider-Man puts genuine time and effort into making its central romance feel authentic, and for that it is exceptional. In every other respect, it isn't.

Could we please try telling a decent story for a change instead of worrying so much about setting up a damn franchise?

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

"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.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

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.

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.

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.
