The Amazing Spider-Man

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

Director Marc Webb reboots the classic comic book superhero (not that we needed it), and Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker) makes it work. Garfield captures the character’s duality, and the clean script clears away clutter and makes us think we’re seeing this for the first time. Peter squares off with the genetic expert (Rhys Ifans), who transforms into the Lizard, and hangs out with another girl he loves (Emma Stone). This reboot works.
