    CinemaVisitor Erik80 - Even though Andrew Garfield is a great Spiderman and the film is very much likeable this "reboot" doesn't bring much new to the franchise.

    Steve Habrat80 - Spot on casting and stunning 3D wasn't enough to blind us to the fact that none of it is really new. Still, it is entertaining and I'm curious to see where they take the Webhead next.

    Bryan Lienesch67 - Why, WHY was this made? Was the superhero genre not saturated enough let alone Spiderman as a franchise itself?

    Dan O'Neill50 - The Amazing Spider-Man is exactly what you come to expect from a superhero flick: fun, action-packed, wild and crazy set pieces, baddies doing bad things, goodies doing good things, romantic love story, and some little shots of humor to liven everything up. Problem is, this is a reboot of a series that has already had its movies, and were ones that still stay stuck in my mind no matter what.
