I went into the theatre wanting to hate this movie because from the trailer it seemed like they strayed far away from the original Spidey theme. They did change a few things in this movie like how Peter was bitten by the spider, and he's got a new girl friend, and theres no Jonah Jameson but I guess if it's okay with Stan Lee then it's okay with me. The special effects were off the hook and the fight scenes were pretty good, they could have done away with all the lovy dovy stuff but I guess thats the way it is nowadays. The acting was okay and the editing could have been better and I hate it when a movie is based in NYC, they never get the Police reactions right despite the retired cop advising them and to me it makes the cops look silly but anyway, you wont be disappointed with this one, it runs long and usually thats a good thing but like I said, the editing wasn't that good. I don't know why the didn't use the other guy for this one or why they re-did the movie all over again and I don't see why they didn't continue the series the way they've been doing it but, what ever. Just make sure you see this on the big screen and as alway's, enjoy.
