'The Amazing Spider-Man' -- 3 stars

PG-13; 2:18 running time Andrew Garfield served as the skeptical conscience of "The Social Network"as Mark Zuckerberg's fellow Harvard student Eduardo Saverin, and here, anchoring his first franchise outing, he represents a significant change from Tobey Maguire, who played Parker/Spidey in the three "Spider-Man" films spanning the years 2002-2007. Maguire was all wide-eyed astonishment cut with a blase comic delivery of the lighter material. Garfield by contrast is pure adolescent angst (though he's nearly 30), more openly emotional and James Dean-y. He's a rebel with a cause and ultralight ultra-thin metal cable shooting out of his wrists. -- Michael PhillipsRead the full "The Amazing Spider-Man" movie review
