Overall a good movie but not the original feel of Spider-Man or the other Marvel movies. Some special effects were cheesy. My son liked it so that was good enough for me.

This is one of the most superior re-boots I've seen an quite some time! The lead is believable and while doing a great job as coming off as a Nerdy kid come mutated superhero, but he also was not whiny!!! After 20 minutes I was hooked!!!! No wasted time and filler back story like the other superhero movie. The female lead is beautiful AND comes of likable!!! The best money I've spent in a long time!!!!! Really make the other three male on male cry-fests even more unwatchable.

Though I am a big fan of movies like this, and was very much looking forward to seeing it, I was a bit underwhelmed. It seemed a little flat. And the fact that it was rebooted so close to the previous film franchise made it impossible to watch it without doing a constant, running cross-reference back to the Rami films. I thought Garfield and Stone had fine chemistry, and I liked Sally Field and Martin Sheen as the Parkers. And it did have some entertaining moments. But over all the action sequences are so computer-generated that I could not shake the feeling that nothing I was seeing was actually happening. Plus there were continuity errors and plot holes. The audience I saw it with seemed subdued afterwards, as well. No excitement. No chattering. No applause. Sort of "been there, done that." I imagine children will like it, and maybe some fan-boys. But it just wasn't strong and consistent enough for adults. Generally speaking I was disappointed because I wanted to LOVE it and didn't.

Spidey is my husband's favorite comic book hero so it's always tricky when there's a Spidey movie out. Recently, our 6 year old daughter started getting into the "superhero" craze. We all went to see it last night and loved it!!!! Really awesome!!!! Totally loved the suit!!!!!

Is the real Stan Lee dead? Was this movie meant to be a sarcastic slap to the face of the real Spider- Man fans? I wont get into the lack of true Imax footage, which was maybe 10 minutes if that. Yes it was very upsetting to see, at World Golf Village the largest Imax in the Southeast, 2 feet of black bars at the top and the bottom of the screen except for a few short minutes. That could have been over looked if the movie was actually good but it wasnt. To be fair let me say, if you have never heard of Spider Man or just dont get into the Super Hero type movies that much, you will probably enjoy this movie. If you have been a TRUE fan of Spidey since the beginning you will be let down. The only thing worse than this would be akin to the Star Wars disasters. After the first two original movies, maybe the best ever made, George Lucas ruined it by catering to little children instead of the true diehard fans. I couldnt believe how many changes Stan lee allowed to the Spider Man character.
