Movie – The Amazing Spider-Man: A-

Despite its welcome take on the character, I’m still not convinced a reboot was warranted. It was like reading a newly launched comic series, with familiar faces but in ever-so-slightly different situations. I like the new Peter more than Maguire. I liked Stone’s Gwen Stacy as a character with more depth than “Save me Spider-man!” I liked the flowing combat sequences and Uncle Ben’s reworked death. I didn’t like Sally Field. Though this newish origin story was better than Raimi’s Spider-Man, it wasn’t enough to overcome the fact that it was Spider-Man’s origin story…again…
