Tobey McGuire in the original Spider-Man movies was a whole lot better than this movie can ever be, it's more like a remake of the first Spider-Man movie and the bad guy will not even be there until about an hour and a half into the movie, The special effects were very good but the acting and the story line were NOT.
I have to say that this new version is a lot more serious than the older ones. The old ones were just plain cheesy. This one was intense, believable, and very much in touch with the struggles one would experience having lost the ones he loves and the resulting anger.
I watched it in 3D and it was great, but it is not one of those movies that depends on being 3D. Awesome and convincing action and actors!
Movie was good. Believable but some scenes didn't make any sense. Since when does Spidey need help swing around to get to a destination. He lives in downtown Manhattan. Buildings are everywehere. He doesn't need help from construction workers to get around. Bah!!! Besides that it was a good movie
