I hate spoilers so while I HAVE seen the movie (it’s awesome) and I’m writing to talk about it (I can’t help myself) I’m not actually going to tell you anything relative to the plot (because I’m nice).
First off, it’s long. Do NOT get popcorn, do NOT get a drink. You will have to leave and then you will miss shit because it is a cinematic masterpiece. Every moment is packed with either action, laughs or both. The fight scenes are plentiful and masterfully done. When I get the DVD I’d like to watch them slowed down so I can see EVERYTHING.
Now onto one of my thoughts that I had towards the end: This is a powerhouse of a movie. There will be another one. How will they go about it is the question. They’re gonna have more characters involved. Spiderman might come up as he tends to do from time to time. If there is any hope in the universe they will pull Tobey Maguire for it and NOT Andrew Garfield. I’m sure he’s a dear man but dude he’s not Spiderman. For the slight jerkiness, the shyness and the child-like abandon and delight in the powers brought on by the radioactive spider bite, Maguire is your man.
Seriously. Go see the movie. If you love comics, you’ll love it.
