Director Marc Webb's reboot of the Spider-Man series, titled 'The Amazing Spider-Man', is a success.
That's according to a number of critics who welcomed the film with open arms - despite the previous Spider-Man films being released only a decade before.
The Amazing Spider-Man goes back to the beginning of the series with a new star, a new villain, a new origin storyline and a new cast - the latter being called 'just right' by guardian.co.uk.
Andrew Garfield, who plays the web slinging hero, looks 'clever, physically slight' and looks like a 'leading man', according to reviewer Peter Bradshaw. Furthermore, Marc Webb takes a number of different filmmaking avenues compared to previous director Sam Raimi - getting rid of newspaper editor J Jonah Jameson and allowing Spiderman to reveal his identity to the people who are important to him 'pretty quickly'.
While positive reviews appear in The Guardian, Entertainment Weekly, Time, Total Film, Hollywood Reporter and more, standard.co.uk was rather mixed on Spidey's revamped tale.
"So if you fancy your Spider-Man as an angsty adolescent, rather than an infallible whiz, you'll get your money's worth," reviewer David Sexton argued.
On the other hand, Ty Burr from the Boston Globe doesn't mix his words when it comes to panning the latest superhero flick: "Dumbed down, tarted up, and almost shockingly uninspired, it's the worst superhero movie since Green Lantern."
