    A very promising and enjoyable first 30 minutes doesn't hold up. The script becomes thinner and thinner with minimal dialogue and zero logic, directionless emotion, and a vanishing sense of morality. The editing evolves into a barely unwatchable mess lacking any sense of grace or subtlety. I found it difficult to find an establishing shot in the later stages of the film.

    On top of that, Peter Parker seems to come off as a little pushy and creepy (and strangely patriarchal), and the usually-more self-assured Emma Stone is wasted in a powerless role. Women are not exactly valued here.

    That said, the film is not without merit. There are great performances from most of the cast (and the cast is filled with mostly stars). Andrew Garfield is more watchable than Tobey McGuire, but a poorer actor, and the film's resolution seems to spit in the face of the very message it was trying to push.

    An unnecessary mess of a reboot for pure profit and a desire to do it in 3D.
