Is it the same Spider-Man you've already seen?
First off I do have to say, I'm a huge Spider-Man fan more-so for the Amazing Spider-Man comic book series when I was a child. For me no other Spider-Man title was official unless it was stamped The Amazing Spider-Man, and there were others like say Spider-Man, Spectacular Spider-Man, Web of Spider-Man just to name a few. That being said, this movie had some expectations to fill since it dared land the official title. Would there be a teen really struggling with real problems? Would he carry on the same sarcasm humor that Toby really couldn't carry over from the comic book realm? Would the acrobatics be able to amaze and convince me that this was the incarnate straight from colored pages I read? Toby never fit the bill, but Andrew Garfield stuck to the essence and made it happen. No matter how many times you re-tell this story you have to stick with the basics, but they did so with emotion, twists, a good cliffhanger and Amazement.
