The Amazing Spider-Man is without a doubt one of the most anticipated comic-book films of the year and mostly because everyone wants to know if his reboot isn’t just better than Sam Raimi‘s original films, but if it serves a point and offers up a new take on the popular character. I’m here to tell you that it does, but slightly. There are things that work almost flawlessly in Webb’s adaptation, but there are also a few things that sell the film short and keep it from being that perfect Spider-Man film. As it stands, The Amazing Spider-Man is an excellent addition to the Spider-Man series and I’d almost say it’s better than Raimi’s efforts."
