Review rate : A-

“..this Spidey reboot refreshes an old story through the on-trend notion of making a Marvel superhero less...super-heroic..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
“..this satisfying reboot slings a darker Spidey, a stronger romance and a welcome slew of tongue-in-cheek humor..”
by Jordan Mintzer [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 4

“..sometimes dull and mostly uninspired, it's much less a satisfying reboot like "Batman Begins" than a pointless rehash in the mode of "Superman Returns"..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
2.5 of 4

“..it has less action, humor, imagination and vitality..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
2.5 of 4

“..is at least better than Raimi's Spider-Man 3, which was a mess..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
2.5 of 4

“..a Spider-Man that touches the heart. Now that really is amazing..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2.5 of 4

“..a smart-talking, web-slinging, thug-busting superhero..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..a mostly slick, entertaining and emotionally involving recombination of fresh and familiar elements..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Variety]
Review rate : B+

“..a grittier webslinger saga, led by a Peter Parker with swagger and angst and a tone defined more by emotional resonance than wide-eyed wonder. It still has plenty of fizz..”
by Chris Vognar [Dallas Morning News]
2 of 4

“..a disappointment on every level, from Garfield's sullen performance to the dull script that plods old roads. Decent special effects, though..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
Review rate : C+

“..a deflated end to a too-familiar story..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]

LATEST REVIEWS

WETLANDS :

“..Juri's performance makes it impossible to divert your eyes from the screen, no matter how much you might want to, and a brave film that eventually succumbs to convention is still braver than most..”
by David Ehrlich [Film.com]

GOD HELP THE GIRL :

“..the cutesiness will entice/repel viewers in equal measure, but it has a lot of heart, and displays it on its sleeve..”
by Emma Johnston [Total Film]

FRONTERA :

“..Frontera is, on a whole, more interested in situations than characters-Pena, a stoic onscreen presence..”
by Andrew Lapin [The Dissolve]

THE LONGEST WEEK :

“.."The Longest Week" quickly becomes mimicry, losing any emotional pull as it strives to preserve the hospital corners of other, better helmers..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

HEAVENLY SWORD :

“..a pretty predictable and unexciting video..”
by Jeffrey Kauffman [Blu-ray.com]

CANTINFLAS :

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”
by Matt Risley [Total Film]

THE CALLING :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
