Review: ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’

Long story short: It’s no Spider-Man 2. Short story long: I love Spider-Man. I went into this move stoked to see Spider-Man do spider…well things, and I wasn’t disappointed. The action was superb and the way everything was set up made the reboot do just that: refresh our perception of
