REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

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]
2.5 of 4

A GOOD MARRIAGE :

“..it's not bad, but it's puzzling why director Peter Askin and King himself bothered to adapt a nondescript novella from the Master of Horror's autumn years..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

BANG BANG! :

“..wish they had used more logic than bullets to create the real 'bang bang'..”
by Lokesh Dharmani [Masala]

LEFT BEHIND :

by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

THE GOOD LIE :

“..it's a deeply touching story about survival, perseverance, and hope..”

ANNABELLE :

“..there is nothing in Annabelle that comes close to capturing a single moment of genuine fear, tension or even mild discomfort, beyond the occasional aural sting..”
by James Marsh [Twitch]

MAS NEGRO QUE LA NOCHE :

“..this might just be the silliest Mexican movie of the year, 3D or not..”
by Eric Ortiz Garcia [TwitchFilm]

THE EQUALIZER :

“..a stone-dumb movie, unwilling to allow Washington even a hint of uniqueness (apart from the usual silverware straightening and public book reading, shorthand cliches for "smart")..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

THE BOXTROLLS :

“..delectable treat that balances themes of identity and class warfare with Monty Python-style political skewering, quirky humor and dairy jokes..”
by Brian Truitt [USA Today]

SAINT LAURENT :

“..pure haute couture - considerably more spectacular, but also less practical, with its baroque ornamentation and slip-sliding chronology..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN :

“..painfully well-meaning but largely unpersuasive bid for cross-generational understanding feels at once of-the-moment and too obvious by half..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
