I read a few reviews before I went to see it and I have to say I wasn't expecting much from it, but I was pleasantly surprised. A lot of the reviews talked about the chemistry between Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield and I think that definitely made me like these movies more than the past three. I liked the villain though I wish there had been a bit more to him/he had been more difficult to beat. My favorite surprise though was how strong Gwen was as far as female love-interests in superhero movies go. I really liked that she had a part in the movie other than being his interest.
