I think I loved this movie more than my 76 and 10 year old boys! The story line was intriguing, the acting fantastic and the characters has time to evolved and develop. I would see this movie again in a heartbeat. Wow.

Makes the Tobey Maguire Spiderman appear to be a corny 80's take on the Marvel comic.
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are so awesome.

I was extremely excited to see this movie...the trailers had done their job by pulling me in and had me counting the days til it opened. PLUS I had recently developed a crush on Andrew Garfield and have been enjoying Emma Stone since SuperBad, so I figured I was going to be blown away! Ok, maybe my expectations were too high. The action was great and it's obvious to me that Andrew Garfield is truly enjoying playing this role, which definitely added to the movie. However, Peter Parker was too unlike-able for my taste. What really bothered me though, was the lack of history...in the relationship between Spidey and the lizard man, and in the relationship between Peter/Spidey and Gwen. I was extremely disappointed in the lack of common sense type of stuff - like how Peter Parker is able to get into places where there should be MUCH MORE security and scrutiny about who is there. Anyhow, I still had fun!

Spider-Man is easily the least of my favorite fans but being a comic book fanatic, I was obligated to watch this movie. The movie was good; worth the $14 I paid to watch it in IMAX 3D. It was certainly better than all the other spider-man movies, especially that forsaken first one. My gripes with this one was the cheesy romantic scenes, and the over exaggeration of spider-mans powers. No doubt, when spidey was bit by the spider his abilities were certainly heightened. However, this movies appeared to over exaggerate them, making it appear as though this was Superman's(my favorite character of all time) seed. His strength was just a bit over doing. Other than that, similar to the comics and the fight scenes were great. James Horner, like usual, did a rather masterful job with the score. Great orchestra to voicing ratio with balancing percussion which I think really amplified this movie. All in all, I'm satisfied. BTW, if you live in NYC, watch this movie at the Lincoln Ctr IMAX. HUGE

Its like an upgrade rather than a reboot. tobey and kirsten were ok, but emma stone is just plain hott. the new spidey guy is more cool and not as much as a momma's boy like tobey.
Sally Field is a little easier to stomach on the screen compared to the other aunt may - but not as near to the comic book version.
I'm curious to know who the next villain will be...it would be super cool to reboot the green goblin again and make it "real" to kill off gwen stacy and have peter go thru his whole emotional rollercoaster since he made that "promise."
Overall i would say its better than version 1, movies 1 and 3, but not movie 2.
