The Amazing Spider-Man ★★★

Fun in some places, but man why did they go back to do the origin again? The half-hour chunk between about 15 minutes in to 45 minutes in bored me almost to tears.

Some decent action (although nothing overly memorable) and a good villain in the Lizard help this out, but really most of the movie was much too familiar from recent superhero blockbusters we've already seen.
