Ben Child at The Guardian:
The Telegraph’s Robbie Collin has the most intriguing theory surrounding Webb’s effort. In his eyes, The Amazing Spider-Man, with a fawning, lovelorn Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy and the pale-faced Brit Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, is a comic book movie for the Twilight generation. Yes: Sony has delivered the first ever female-skewed superhero flick.
Forgiving the inept Twilight comparison, I find this take highly reassuring. My greatest concern is the potential for Amazing to get bogged down in poor 3D and incoherent action over reliant on CGI; excepting one reviewer, this doesn’t seem to be the case.
