Rebooting Spiderman already? Come on give me a break, it has only been 5 years since the last movie, Spiderman 3. Well let me tell you web slingers something, in this case a reboot was justified. The new Spiderman movie is amazing! Yes this is a reboot origin story, with a different take on the original movie, but this movie definitely stands on its own webbed feet. Think of it as an alternate Spiderman universe, and you will be fine.
I have to admit that this film is a lot more fun than the first three movies, although Spiderman 2 is still one of my favorites. Everything in the film has been updated for all of you web heads out there, from cooler costume, web throwers and CGi effects to story line. The thing I do like about this quasi reboot is that they introduce a new villain who was actually referenced in the previous Spiderman films by a character cameo.
If you are a Spidey fan or a non-fan, this is still a fun movie that is well worth the price of admission. Now the $20 question…was it better than the Avengers? Roshawn put it best when he said you can’t compare the two movies, however, I will say that story wise I liked Spiderman better, but action wise the Avengers takes the cake. Since these superheroes share the same universe, I would love to see some crossover action in the future.
Three cheers to the Amazing Spiderman, who can do whatever a spider can! Spins a web any size, catches thieves just like flies, look out here comes the Spiderman! LOL!
