Chewin the Fat : Amazing Spider-man Movie Review

 Amazing Spiderman Movie Review

So Hollywood has decided it was time to re-boot the Spiderman movie series already, that didn’t take long did it. It was released this Holiday week, which I am sure will be blockbuster numbers, due to the popularity of the past Spiderman franchise with Tobey Maguire.

Initially I had no interest in seeing this, because I felt that Tobey Maguire played the role to perfection, and didn’t like the idea of telling the story again. Then I got some details on how they planned to go a step further back into Peter Parker’s life to his parents and more of a prequel which actually  peaked my curiosity.

Well I went to see first-hand to see if this Spiderman was truly Amazing or not.

Andrew Garfield takes over the lead role for Maguire, whereas Peter Parker I still Maguire I felt was closer to the Parker I remember as growing up reading the comics. Whereas Garfield reminds me more of the modern Peter Parker that was in the Mtv Cartoon a few years back.

Now as Spiderman, I felt Garfield was better than Maguire, so maybe if we can combine the two, we would have the perfect Spider Specimen

Overall I felt the movie was good, but drug slow at some points. It felt like they tried to fit so much in the movie, but still at times, never got the point across.

Story was good, and enjoyable and kicked into high gear for the big ending fight scene, but I felt the original with Maguire was a far better movie.

I kept waiting to see Denis Leary break out into one of comedic tirades, but disappointingly, it never happened.

Emma Stone playing Gwen Stacy is much better to look at then Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane, but again felt the Maguire & Dunst connection were much truer to the old comics

It was weird seeing Sally Field as Aunt May alongside Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben, which I pictured Martin Sheen as so much older as Field, but reality is they aren’t that far off in age.

So if you’re a Spidey fan, it’s a fun movie, just don’t expect to get blow away.

I’ll give the movie 2.5 Chews of the Fat outta 4
