I'm still iffy on this. The point-of-view camerawork looks like something out of MIRROR'S EDGE or a first person shooter. I think Andrew Garfield does good work based on the little we've seen, and I like the idea of realistic action sequences, but there's something off about this that I can't put my finger on. Maybe it's because we've been here before, and Sam Raimi's love of the source material was so genuine and true that, especially in the first two films, it really felt like Spider-Man. This one - not so much, although the mechanical webshooters do look pretty neat:
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN opens next year, and you'll likely see this trailer on the big screen this weekend attached to CAPTAIN AMERICA. Nordling, out.
