Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
At 28, Garfield's slightly older than Maguire was when he played Peter Parker in 2002, but his combination of fresh-faced innocence, nervous agitation and wry humor is immediately appealing.Tom Charity, CNN.com, 07.03.2012
Here comes another Spider-dude: This Andrew Garfield guy. So he'd better be really something, right? Well, as it happens, he is.Bob Mondello, NPR, 07.03.2012
This hugely elaborate production is supposed to be the reboot of a foundering franchise, but rebooting a computer wipes the silicon slate clean. In the movie, what's old is old again.Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, 07.03.2012
This is a grittier webslinger saga, led by a Peter Parker with swagger and angst and a tone defined more by emotional resonance than wide-eyed wonder. It still has plenty of fizz.Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News, 07.04.2012
