This fourth installment is a complete reboot, returning to the web-slinger's creation story, and Garfield, more than any other factor, contributes to the sense of a darker vision along the lines of The Dark Knight.
Whatever your thoughts about rebooting the Spider-Man franchise after a mere five years in mothballs, The Amazing Spider-Man winds up being a thrilling and, occasionally, even exhilarating spin on a familiar saga.
