    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    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

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

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

    As a new chapter in the superpowered arachnid saga, it stands on its own quite nicely, focusing more on human emotions than on a panoply of special effects. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    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

    Don't come to The Amazing-Spider-Man looking for originality. show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    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. show more

    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. show more

    Probably not as good as you hoped or as bad as you feared. show more

    Joe Williams St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    Not just a reboot - it's a rejuvenation. From the first image of sensory awakening to the final acceptance of adult responsibility, it pulses with the warm blood of a very human hero. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    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. 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.

    It was better than I thought it would be. Worth checking out. Although I do think Toby McGuire was a better Peter Parker.

    They should have waited longer to reboot the Spider-Man franchise, but everyone in my office at DISH agrees that this remake was Amazing. 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

    Having been a Spider-man comic book junkie I feel completely different on the approach of the first films, so I stopped after the first one. I felt like there was something lacking in all areas especially in Peter Parker and I’m faithful to my comics. I have seen Andrew Garfield in a couple films, but nothing struck me more than his performance in Never Let Me Go. My friend and coworker from DISH also admirers the talents of Andrew Garfield, especially in this role. She’s having a girl’s night tomorrow night to see The Amazing Spider-man, which I don’t want to miss, but I’m out of town helping my Mom right now who has some health problems. I have my laptop with me for work so I can easily access DISH Online and rent The Amazing Spider-man to my Mom’s Hopper from DISH and still enjoy the movie with the gals even though I’m away from home. I’m looking forward to the discussion that will take pl
