  • Webb never loses touch with the film's emotional through line. And he allows time and space for Garfield and Stone, both stellar, to turn a high-flying adventure into something impassioned and moving. A Spider-Man that touches the heart. Now that really is amazing. show more

  • This is the second-best Spider-Man movie yet made. In the previous trilogy, only "Spider-Man 2" surpasses it. show more

  • This hugely elaborate production is supposed to be the reboot of a foundering franchise, but rebooting a computer wipes the silicon slate clean. In the movie, what's old is old again. show more

    Why do we need yet another spider man reboot? I\'ll tell you why, the movie studio\'s needed a movie that was garaunteed to sell. This is SO un-original and weak. Please, tell everyone to boycott this piece of CRAP, and lets get some new movies. Or better yet, if you MUST see this movie, just download it illegally and pass it out to anyone else that NEEDS to see it. That way we don\'t pay for something that we\'ve already seen 50 times.

The casting was great, the choice of angle for the plot was clever and McGuire’s delivery was downright hilarious some times. Since my town does not have a movie store I have been movie less for a while now, but because Blockbuster at Home through DISH delivers it right to my mailbox I have been ordering movies like a mad man and this was the best one so fa
