Ok, I confess, I went into Spider-Man with an "ugh another franchise reboot” groan. I came away surprised and satisfied. Andrew Garfield successfully filled some big shoes. I think the difference between this and the prior movies is in their foundations. Where the others were rooted in unadulterated action this one is rooted more in heart, soul, and character development. There is still action, and FX, but honestly they are second tier to the human aspect of the characters.
