A different take on the spider man movies for sure. What makes this one different is the focus on Peter’s real life. He’s a normal kid going to school. He even gets a best friend, who really makes the difference. We can all see a bit of ourselves, or relate to someone like his friend. His world seems real, and it makes the supernatural parts work all the better.
The ties to the other movies are minimal. So if you haven’t seen the other marvel movies, but want to see spider man, you can, and you won’t be lost.
Great acting, great effects, well told story, overall I have no complaints. It’s a great movie, so if you haven’t seen it yet, I suggest you do!
