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]
