Finally, a Peter Parker that is intelligent and not emo. Also his development from teen motivated by revenge to superhero dedicated to protecting the people is done very well. Eagerly awaiting the sequel!

The movie was great but the 3D was not the best... Movies are losing the real 3D aspect of the movies... I would have see in it on 2D and still gotten the great movie. Go see it in 2D, don't pay the extra money for the 3D the value is not there. What I do recommend is to go see it in IMAX for the great sound.
Enjoy the movie.

Despite all the skepticism about rebooting a successful franchise and starting all over again at square one, well, I don't think I'll bother watching the Tobey Maguire series by choice again. This new, darker, truer take by the aptly-named Marc Webb caught any doubts I had in its web of entertainment while Uncle Ben was still alive. Andrew Garfield was superb as Peter Parker and nailed the awkward geek persona. Emma Stone, what can I say? She's stunningly beautiful and continues to firmly establish herself as not just a witty comedienne but a solid actress to be taken seriously. Rhys Ifans as Curt Connors/The Lizard was also excellent and played the good guy/bad monster-thing to a "T." The story was enthralling, the origin is tragic and the dynamic of having all things that Peter is combatting be way over his head made for a real stress-inducing film. The Spider-Man story is very human and very relatable and "The Amazing Spider-Man" really captures that essence in its web.

Went in expecting little; came away by how much of an improvement this movie was from the original series. The acting was fantastic (Garfield and Stone dominated and had great chemistry), the effects were brilliant, and the story was much more thoughtful and intellectual than the first Spider-Man. Admittedly, some of the story was left untold, but I am happy to watch the second one in a few years to find out the rest.
Honestly, you will not leave disappointed. It was brilliant.
