I thought this movie was great. I really liked Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. The next one is gonna be awesome.

come on peoples! what is the deal with the eyes for his costume?!? I mean sunglass lens?!? really?

For those who are not aware, the Amazing Spiderman is based on the comics, "The Amazing Spiderman" which differ from the older comics of "Spiderman." The movies with Toby Maguire are based on the older Spiderman comics while this title is based on the Amazing Spiderman comics. The difference is the Amazing Spiderman takes place when Peter Parker is in high school and Gwen Stacy is the main love interest as opposed to Mary Jane. If you didn't like the movie you should read the comics, they are quite good and hard to put down once you start reading them.

i loved this movie it was so good and amazing

Poor pacing and muddled character motives makes this one a bit of an aimless bore at times.

More character and less bombast than the previous trilogy, and that's a good thing. Andrew Garfield, of THE SOCIAL NETWORK fame, is a great actor and this role clearly spoke to him. He does exactly what you'd expect would happen when a mild-mannered teen with dreams and ambition finds himself thrust into a position of super-power; at first, you mess around and experiment with your gift, then you learn the repercussions and refocus your energy into something more substantial. The villain was intriguing and well acted; there was a decent motivation and I preferred this battle over the menaces from the third emo-tastic film and maybe -- maybe -- even Doc Oc in the second. And, of course, Emma Stone, Sally Field, and Martin Sheen were great; Stone really has personality to spare and Sally and Marty are consistently excellent. I'd definitely recommend this remake.

This was entertaining. I'm a fan of Andrew Garfield's and I like him as Spider Man. He did a good job. I like Emma Stone and am a fan of Sally Field's too. Interesting to see that they switched Gwen to be the first love and I guess Mary Jane will come in the next one. Curious to see where they take the story in the next installment.

Peter Parker (getting home late, acting strangely): "I'm so sorry... I kept you guys up... I'm insensitive. I'm irresponsible. I'm hungry." (opens fridge and chows meatloaf) Aunt May: "Drinking?" Uncle Ben: "I don't think so." Peter Parker: "This is your meatloaf! ...This beats all other meatloafs!" Aunt May: "Something is very wrong." Uncle Ben: "Yeah. Nobody likes your meatloaf."
