I will not say much for the acting and the sets and the characters of this movie, BUT I would like to say one thing regarding Gwen Stacey:
If I may say one thing; the death of Gwen struck me in a way that was rather odd. I know in the comic series (PARDON ME IF I COMPLETELY SCREW THIS UP) she was killed accidentally by Spidey the same way and, while I am glad they stuck to that story line, it severely depressed me. I knew it was bound to happen (I had even discussed the possible death scene with my brother) and I knew the moment she was falling she was a goner. But the way they depicted the scene, the way her body seemed to snap...it was rather depressing and graphic (not gory, but that snap is enough to rattle your bones). I think the death of this character was depressing in the way that she was different from MJ; she was going places in her life, she had things ahead of her, and her death...was just startling. It's rare to see a strong female role in a male hero movie, but Gwen stepped up and I applaud Emma Stone for taking on this role (she was perfect and her feisty attitude added depth to the character). I wish they had not chosen to kill her, chosen not to follow the story line, but who am I to get in the way of cinema?
