Yesterday! I had to do it. I had to know if it was watching. I have to say that I was impressed. From the start to finish I enjoyed the whole reboot. The return of the Spiderman franchise was well worth the wait! Some people may disagree and that’s fine but… I think Andrew Garfield played the web slinger well. Growing up through the eighties was a great time and making my mum take me to the video shop to get any video I wanted was a grey hair saving day for the woman known as mother. Every time I went there it was either Clash of the titans or Spiderman cartoons and on rare occasions the Incredible Hulk. So it’s safe to say that that I am a fan of the Web Slinger and was glad Marc Webb kept the movie to original 60’s cartoon.
Anyway I took my girlfriend to watch it in the Yelmo cines located about 10 minutes from my work and we enjoyed a few canyas (beers) and some pasties before the movie. I have to say the intro for the movie was the quickest I had ever seen for a marvel production and it started pretty well. Even though Andrew Garfield played the part of Peter Parker/Spiderman well I still think he didn’t give it quite his all? There were times I was thinking Jake Gyllenhaal should have played this part. Jake has that cheekiness, charisma that Toby and Andrew failed to put across and that too me is part of Spideys persona. So back to the movie, Rhys Ifans played our super villain superb :).
The comic element to the whole film was perfectly executed and the visual effects were outstanding. So all in all minus the under performance of Mr Garfield (I just wish he played that part better) but he wasn’t too bad.
I’#ll give this movie 8/10 maybe a 9?
