This film came off as being more believable then the previous films. rather then simple, "I was bit by a spider, hey i can shoot webs and climb walls", it shows you just what he went through trying to fine tune his identity as Spider-man. Andrew Garfield delivers a much more emotional ride then Toby McQuire did. Some may critize it for not being as much like the comics and previous movies as they would like, but I found it to be refreshing. I was also impressed with the use of Gwen Stacy rather then mary Jane Watson, as Gwen was used in the comics before Mary Jane, who was introduced later, rather then the other way around in the original films.

I wasn't sure how this new version was going to turn out, but I genuinely liked it. It was grittier, somehow. More real than the previous versions. The story felt as though it had been reduced to core elements, despite the heavy use of special effects, which didn't get in the way thankfully. Well worth your dollar, however, are the scenes of ol' Webhead in motion. Swinging through the air, climbing up buildings, battling large lizards. Breathtaking stuff.

I had to admit that before seeing the movie I had my doubts, because of Tobey Maguire's interpretation, but Andrew Garfield played the part very well. He definitely had me rooting for him in the fight scenes and he was able to capture Spidey's human side just as well as Maguire. Some people may not agree for whatever reason, but the movie script is strong and something that I appreciated in this movie over the Maguire Spidey movies was that this Spidey had his wit during the fight scenes and just like in the comic books, he built his web shooters. I think Spidey fans who appreciated the Maguire movies will come to see this movie as Maguire passing the torch to Garfield. Great film and a must see in my opinion.

This was a good step back to the comic books. I like how he made web shooters instead of having some gland in his arms. This was like the spiderman i grew reading about.

This was a truly great movie. It has some of the same elements as the original but also some very different takes. The main character acting was better than Maguire and the special effects are outstanding. Overall, My family and I really enjoyed watching this movie and did not want it to finish. Do yourself a favor and go watch this, you won't regret it.
