    The Hollywood Reporter

    While the two leads deliver the goods and manage to combine a frisky sense of first love with the movie's gloomier arc, they are well-served by a terrific supporting cast.

    It's the successul synthesis of the two ? action and emotion ? that means this Spider-Man is as enjoyable as it is impressive: Webb's control of mood and texture is near faultless ...

    It isn't perfect but this reboot's wins outweigh its wobbles. The leads charm, the action crackles and the grooves are well-laid for part two. Untold story? Next time, then.

  • Meh. Very Average.

    There is no chemistry between any of the actors and the dialog/pacing of the film is bad. Great CGI and action sequences though. In the end it should NOT have been made.
  • More better of the Sam Raimi's Trilogy.

    The Amazing Spider-Man is an epic reboot and an epic beginnig of a new Spider-Man saga.
  • Review for The Amazing Spiderman

    I thought that movie was good in my opinion. Some people disliked the movie, but the acting was good. I liked the clothing Peter Parker wore. I didnt like about that how they didnt talk about how he was a kid without living with his parents. The overall of this movie is great but not great.
  • What was the point of this film?

    I managed to watch the whole thing, but it felt longer than "Apocalypse Now". Why do we need 30 minutes to tell the origin story? We all know it, seen it several times already, and changing a few minor details doesn't make it more interesting. Why did they choose Emma Stone to play Gwen? She looked like she's in her 30's. Why did Spiderman's suit look like it was made out of basketball covers? And, I thought the CGI fight scenes would never end...they went on and on and on with animated characters bouncing around like blips in a Pong game. Possibly the worst, most pointless Marvel film to date.moreless
