The Amazing Spider-Man ★★★½

The low-key villain cannot deflate this otherwise fun reboot. Andrew Garfield is enormously charming as the awkward and complex teen Peter Parker. Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) is the love interest that will not shy away from danger. The supporting cast appears to be having a good time and the action sequences are easy to follow. Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans) lacks depth and his performance is too little and too flat to engage the viewer. Overall, a great start to a freshened trilogy.
