So I waited a day to let the movie marinate and see if it was just a knee jerk reaction after the utter travesty that was Spiderman 3 and nope. Amazing Spiderman was still awesome. I am a lifelong geek and have been reading Spiderman comics for the last couple of years. And this movie was phenomenal and stayed very true to the source material.
Was it perfect? No. I definitely had issues with a few of the choices in the movie producers/directors/writers made but it was still a great movie. By far the most accurate depiction of Peter Parker that we have gotten. But it wasn't just him, Dr. Connors/Lizard was given the same treatment in his character development and it was nice that such a big character of the original origin story was kept around.
Lastly, for those that don't read comics. This movie isn't based on Stan Lee's origin story but rather a reboot/alternate one developed more recently.
PS - Stan's cameo is the best one to date in my opinion.

i have to admit, the only reason that i saw the spiderman movie was because Ted was sold out and i didnt want to schlepp myself to another theatre. its not that i wasnt/ am not into super hero movies, its just that i wasnt really a fan of the other spiderman movies, still, I have to say
THIS MOVIE BLEW ME AWAY. the acting was great, and the stunts were awesome. it was really the best (so far) movie i have seen all year......

Awesome! Best use of 3d of any film to date. Engrossing story, excellent cinematography & effects, flawless acting, incredible chemistry between Garfield & Stone, just a perfect movie. Oh, and RPX theater at Regal Salisbury MD was perfection.

Wow, this movie was amazing. It made me laugh, cry, it just had me hooked to the edge of my seat. I couldn't take my eyes off the movie screen. Just the story line and the flow of how the characters worked with each other. I also liked the direction, felt very realistic! Its just a movie that is a must go, i want to go see it again. At the end of the movie stay for the credits, there's an extra clip for the upcoming Spider-Man. I dragged my friend with me who disliked the Spider-Man movies, and thought the main characters name was "Peter Pan", in the end she loved it and cant wait for the next one. Just go see it, the changing of the characters, and the way the story was retold was EPIC!!!! Deferentially a must see!!!!

This installment was the perfect way to sweep the other movies under the carpet. The characters are adult, gritty, and have an edge that is a welcome sight.
