GLA Contributor Johnny Donaldson watches this lame sci-fi comedy so you don’t have to.

The Amazing Spider-man is a tale of two films, neither of which are very good. One is a darker, more ponderous re-telling of Spider-man’s origin with flashes of a charming teenage love story; the other is a clumsy superhero action spectacle with big moments that are contrived and ultimately unearned.
