It wasn't amazing, and the plot points they hyped up through marketing that they then-cut-out of the movie REALLY hurt this from being an epic (ala SM3), however, It was a well-welcomed return to form (after what I thought would be a **** quick-cash in reboot). Also, I didn't like the blatant rip-offs of Raimi's Spider-Man. Some of the movie really did feel like a rehash of what we saw before. The lizard was just god-awful looking (the design, not the actual Cgi, that was fine), and I hate the suit he wears. It looks good on camera, but it's just an awful suit. The acting AND the action were top notch, and I'm glad I wasn't disappointed in it. Hopefully the sequel improves the flaws, and uses a villain that's more of a visual stunner, while keeping the Spider-Man franchise a thrill ride.
