Let me preface my comments by saying that I have seen all of the Spiderman movies including the latest installment yesterday
FWIW, I have enjoyed the 3 previous films with Toby Maguire and Kirsten Dunst. This latest installment now includes Andrew Garfield (Social Connection) and Emma Stone (The Help)
Well what you get for your next 136 minutes is a remake of the very first movie told as a different story. Martin Sheen and Sally Field as peter Parker's aunt and uncle
Spiderman's nemesis in this film is the Lizard man played by Rhys Ifans
Having said all of that there isn't much else to share. The movie is watchable but never reaches the grandiose scale of previous installments. The special effects and sound were certainly there but at the end it just left too much to be desired. The movie was just too long however if you see it make sure you stay until the end of the rolling credits in order to get a flavor of what to expect in the The Amazing Spiderman 2 coming in 2014.
Overall, the kids all loved it but for me it never rose above a 6 out of 10 and was the weakest of all of the 4 movies
