I didn't care for the Tobey series all that much so I was super keen for this reboot to be good. The new guy, Andrew Garfield (The Social Network) is a much better Peter Parker I think. I'm not a big Spiderman fan so I didn't think he had to be a certain way but I just didn't like the Tobey Spiderman and this guy, he's good. It's sort of a darker Spiderman to an extent but not Nolan-Batman dark.
Emma Stone is more likeable as the love interest and Dennis Leary plays a solid cop role. I won't reveal anything about the villain but safe to say it's an entertaining watch and a half decent story. Watch it.
