In keeping with the action packed series of Spiderman movies released in recent years. My wife and I loved this movie and the cinematography was mindblowing. If you like these kinds of movies I would encourage you to see this in the theater and not wait for the Blue Ray. You will miss the best part of the experience.

The whole family went and everyone enjoyed the 3D experience, especially the 7 year old Spiderman fan.
This is one 3D we have seen that incorporated the effect well and did not short change the story line for the effects.
The webslinging swings were awesome. Lighting and cinematography were great.
A little slow in a couple of places, lost the interest of the youngsters, but it rebounded well and they were well pleased with the overall experience.
HINT: Sit through the after show credits....do not get up and leave too soon!

This movie's representation of Spiderman is closer to the original, wise-cracking comics version of the character. In motion, he is like the quick and super agile comics character. Like in the comics, Spiderman has to use web-shooters that he creates, instead of having webs come from his wrists (yuck). The movie is well-cast, the acting is really good, and there is great onscreen chemistry between Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spiderman) and Emma Stone (Gwen Stacey). The main protagonist, the Lizard, is a classic Spidey nemesis, and was well/accurately-repented in this movie. The action and fight scenes were REALLY good...much better than anything in the pervious trilogy. My only problems with the movie, were 1) they changed Spidey's costume a little & 2) You CANNOT have a Spiderman origin story without Uncle Ben saying, "With great power comes great responsibility. These are minor complaints on what I thought was a really good movie.

Andrew Garfield is a revelation as an action hero. What Mark Ruffalo did for Hulk and Robert Downey, Jr., did for Iron Man, Garfield has done for Spidey: he has given him depth, complexity, fun, and heart. The action is fantastic, the 3D breathtakingly good, and the story moving and unexpected. An excellent flick!

While I enjoyed the movie I didn't think we needed to sit through an hour of origin story again. With that said, once Peter becomes Spiderman the movie really soars. The 3D is pretty great at times too.
