Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: At 28, Garfield's slightly older than Maguire was when he played Peter Parker in 2002, but his combination of fresh-faced innocence, nervous agitation and wry humor is immediately appealing.
Rotten: Dumbed down, tarted up, and almost shockingly uninspired, it's the worst superhero movie since Green Lantern.
Fresh: This is 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.
Fresh: I felt, with this film, that the use of 3D was actually exhilarating.
They finally got Spider-Man right!
I grew up reading Spider-Man, and this movie finally brought the character to life for me. The Spider-Man of the trilogy before this was a whiny, over-emotional sissy, whereas this rendition actually brought some humor and toughness to the role. I'm not badly concerned with getting the events of the comic book exactly correct, I just want my favorite childhood hero to "feel" right. This one did. Keep this Spider-Man his wise-cracking self, and you'll have a hooked fan for the whole run of new movies!
