Some people were skeptical of the new Spiderman because it’s only been ten years since the start the last Spidey movies. But I’m telling you right now that Spiderman 2012 puts Tobey Maguire to shame. Andrew Garfield kicks ass as Peter Parker, plus he’s much better suited to the role; he delivers both as nerdy Parker and sassy Spiderman.
The Amazing Spider-Man is filled to the brim with humor, as it should be, and the younger cast makes it all more believable and true to our modern life. With ever so slight changes to the Spiderman mythos (depending on which storyline you follow), it only adds to the intrigue surrounding the teen behind the mask.
This is another achievement by Marvel, and a must-see for old and new school Spidey fans! I only saw it in 2D, but I can only imagine that 3D is made to be worth it during the first person webslinging scenes, which there are a good number–now if only they’d turn that into a video game!
