Refreshing new look at the Spiderman story.
Great acting. Great cast.
Lizard scenes can be intense, so keep the little ones under 12 at home. It is rated PG-13 for a reason.
Story is really set up for a sequel.

Yet another good adaptation of the web slinger. I really enjoyed all the characters and the build up of each one. The Best Stan Lee cameo of any of the films he's been in to date!! Can't wait for more.

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 actually enjoyed this Spider-Man more than the original trilogy...which I also happened to like very much (well, not so much the third one). It was more emotional and heartfelt...and besides that, The Spidey scenes were incredible. I loved the extra attention on his webs and his swinging through the city. I almost felt like I was there swinging along with him. Great CGI effects this time!!! Anyone who refuses to go because they are loyal to the original are depriving themselves of a great time at the movies. Besides, the comics have reboots constantly and nobody complains...why not movies?

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!!!!
