imho this was far superior in almost every way when compared to Raimi's Spider-Man
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone were excellent...great chemistry between the two...the rest of the cast was top-notch as well
his "transition' was SO much better than Raimi's version
Marc Webb (director) nailed Parker's fighting technique (use of his webbing)...looked just like the comics
even though it's yet another Origin story, i highly recommend checking this out...it's VERY well done...count me on board for a 2nd installment...8.5/10
edit...Sue and I saw this in IMAX 3D
looks like I'll be watching it then. there were really positive and really negative reviews so I didn't know what to expect.
