This is a very worthy reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. The best thing about this film is the acting, feels much more real than the Raimi films. All the performances were wonderful, and you can feel the chemistry between Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, who nailed their performances. I really liked Garfield's take on the Spider-Man character, especially as he explores his newly found powers and starts to realize what he can do.
It explores a different angle to the Spider-Man origin story than the 2002 film, and from the little I know I thought Raimi's movie was more faithful to the real story. But I've never really read the comics so I can't really tell. I did like the way it explores the story of Peter Parker's parents, his father in particular. I feel like they should have gone into that story a little deeper, but given the ending (the scene after the credits), I guess they're leaving that for an upcoming sequel? But I feel a movie should stand on its own, even if it has a planned sequel, and they should have given us more information about this part of the story, since it is essential in understanding the motivations that lead Parker to become Spider-Man.
One thing that threw me off: isn't it an amazing coincidence that Gwen Stacy happens to be an intern in the lab of the partner of Peter Parker's dad? I almost feel like that was completely unnecessary, the whole movie could have remained mostly the same if Stacy didn't work for Dr. Connor at all. Also, how does an intern have all the security clearance to get into the most secretive labs at Oscorp?
At the end of the day, I can't really say if I liked this better than the 2002 film. I'll have to re-watch that one to rank them accordingly.
