In my not-so-humble opinion, this new reboot of the Spiderman stories is the best movie that Marvel Comics has ever made! I never would have thought of Sally Field playing a Aunt May! Andrew Garfield is so awesome in the role of Peter Parker/Spiderman. Emma Stone does a wonderful portrayal of Gwen, his girlfriend. Dennis Leary is perfect as the police chief, out to arrest and bring to justice the renegade vigilante known as Spiderman. Martin Sheen is Uncle Ben who gets gunned down by the guy who Peter didn’t stop from robbing a convenience store when he had the chance. I missed his iconic line though… “Along with great power comes great responsibility.” Not sure why they left that out!
The action and adventure are spectacularly filmed in genuine IMAX 3D as opposed to being converted to 3D by computer manipulation. So the sharpness and clarity as well as the use of the 3D images is probably the best I’ve seen in any movie. With this new remake, Marvel has rebooted the Spiderman storyline returning to the original story as presented in the comic books.
The protagonist in this story is the former lab partner of Peter’s deceased father, Dr. Curt Connors who, with Peter’s help, uses himself to test a cross-species genetic engineering formula, but it goes terribly wrong resulting in his metamorphosis into a giant lizard creature.
There is no shortage of breathtaking action, romance, imagery of New York City, and tongue-in-cheek humor to keep you entertained throughout the 2 hour movie.
And don’t leave when the credits begin to roll… There’s more to come after some of the credits!!Watch for Stan Lee’s cameo appearance in the library scene! It is one of his best yet!
