This is great news for fans of The Amazing Spider-Man because Roger Ebert is arguably the most popular movie critic out there and this will surely help the Andrew Garfield incarnation of Spider-Man become more accepted in the public's eye. Here is a synopsis of what he thought. Hit the link if you would like to view his whole review.
We live in an age of speed-up, which may explain why the "Spider-Man" franchise feels the need for a reboot only 10 years after its first film, and five years after the most recent one. In its broad strokes, "The Amazing Spider-Man" is a remake of Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" (2002), but it's not the broad strokes we care about. This is a more thoughtful film, and its action scenes are easier to follow in space and time. If we didn't really need to be told Spidey's origin story again, at least it's done with more detail and provides better reasons for why Peter Parker throws himself into his superhero role.
Dennis Leary appeared on The Letterman Show where it was revealed that David Letterman also loved the movie! Skip to 5:10 if you want to save some time.
