The Amazing Spider-Man | Ratings & Reviews

"A mostly slick, entertaining and emotionally involving recombinations of fresh and familiar elements."


"It's Spider-Man Begins Again, struggling in places to assert its own identity... [but] the leads charm, the action crackles and the grooves are well-laid for part two."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Feels like one of those unnecessary software versions, more Spider-Man 1.5 than Spider-Man reborn."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"It's the successul synthesis of the action and emotion that means this Spider-Man is as enjoyable as it is impressive."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"This is a more thoughtful film, and its action scenes are easier to follow in space and time. If we didn't really need to be told Spidey's origin story again, at least it's done with more detail and provides better reasons for why Peter Parker throws himself into his superhero role."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"Director Marc Webb's action-adventure is grounded in a recognizable reality, but is also full of thrills. It's dark and mysterious, but doesn't skimp on fun."

New York Daily NewsNew York Daily News

"Memorable in pieces but not as a whole."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"It creates its own mythology, its own magic, and it’s own future. Spider-Man is dead. Long live Spider-Man."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"This satisfying reboot slings a darker Spidey, a stronger romance and a welcome slew of tongue-in-cheek humor."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Graced with great performances from Garfield and Stone, [this is] a rare comic-book flick that is better at examining relationships than superheroism."
