Just what makes Spiderman so amazing this time? Andrew Garfield, of course. He certainly gave Peter Parker a lot of heart as a major player in this film. Geeky, sneaky, and out for the truth.

For the most part this version stuck with the original story of Parker becoming Spiderman. The history of his parents. Uncle Ben. High school moments. Also, I will confessed I did like Gwen Stacey over Mary Jane, any day. Her character was much stronger and wiser and I'd say she was Spiderman's equal. Also, I adored the chemistry between Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield.

Flash (Chris Zylka) was more of a bully than anything. I like that the story mainly stayed with the connection between Peter and Gwen and of course, the villain (Rhys Ifans) Dr. Curt Connors. Ifans is showing up in so many movies lately, and he certainly delivers what the director wants.
This was certainly more of a 'history' of spiderman that is played out in the movie. The special effects were pretty darn good. Of course, we had a movie for a lot of different fans too. I still have to wonder how some felt about the "lizard". I have mixed feelings if that was the right villan to have for this chapter in a movie. Yet, I feel Rhys Ifans is an extra-ordinary actor.
I felt the movie was a nice balance between the romance and how Parker grows into some one his Uncle Ben would have been proud of. While to others, I'm sure was there just for the ride to see all the fun stuff Spiderman does while fighting crime.
