what the others say
"We're never far from romance or laughs, and at times The Amazing Spider-Man feels like a romcom upgraded to include 3D and industrial cobwebs."
"Graced with great performances from Garfield and Stone, The Amazing Spider-Man is a rare comic-book flick that is better at examining relationships than superheroism."
"A mostly slick, entertaining and emotionally involving recombination of fresh and familiar elements."
