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

LATEST REVIEWS

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]
