Like all Marvel Comic movies, this one deviates from the original comic book storylines. However,
the changes do not affect the quality, excitement or enjoyability of the film. ASM is an action-packed fun picture. The actors were well selected for their roles, maybe with the exception of Sally Field who is still too young and vibrant to pass as an age 70+ Aunt May. Even so, Field is a great actress and it shows in this flick. Garfield, Stone, Leary and Sheen are cast perfectly and perform their roles in excellent fashion. Spider-man comic regular; Daily Bugle Publisher J.Jonah Jameson is absent without leave and sorely missed. The special effects, including Dr. Kurt Connors as the monstrous Lizard, are outstanding. It is always good to see the great comic artist Steve Ditko listed as Spider-man co-creator among the credits. And, with a running time of about 2 hrs and 15 mins, one definitely gets their money's worth in enjoyment. I will probably see this movie at least one more time.
