Dave Calhoun of Time Out in a fresh review: “We’re never far from romance or laughs, and at times The Amazing Spider-Man feels like a romcom upgraded to include 3D and industrial cobwebs.”
Nick Curtis of This is London in the film’s sole rotten review so far: “Webb’s film is slow on plot, skimpy on character development.”
Boyd van Hoeij of Variety in a fresh review: “A mostly slick, entertaining and emotionally involving recombination of fresh and familiar elements.”
Jordan Mintzer of Hollywood Reporter in a fresh review: “The Amazing Spider-Man reboots the top grossing Marvel franchise to altogether satisfying results.”
Sounds like so far, so good. Competent and satisfying, if not yet a consensus reached that it’s totally thrilling. For reference, the original Spider-Man was Certified Fresh at 89%, Spider-Man 2 was also Certified Fresh at 93%, and Spider-Man 3 was merely fresh at 63%.
The Amazing Spider-Man is out in theaters July 3rd. Keep an eye on Rotten Tomatoes for the latest reviews, news, pictures, and trailers as the date approaches.
