At 28, Garfield's slightly older than Maguire was when he played Peter Parker in 2002, but his combination of fresh-faced innocence, nervous agitation and wry humor is immediately appealing.
Get off the crack, it is clearly you were watching the wrong movie. This is the worst Spider-man movie to date. They have not made a decent spider-man at all not even in the 2000s and not this week.

I think YOU must be on crack, if you thought this was worse than Spiderman 3, which was a complete hack job.

No, Joanne-youre just a silly girl. Spider 3 had some heart and decent acting-this one was BAD all around-terrible cast (Garfield is almost 30 and looks it! Emma as a smart girl? what???)- and teh script was awful-bad lines, no resonance, no heart at all-Martin sheen could barely talk through thsoe dentures and he was clearly 30 years older than Fields!

Spiderman 3 had some great parts to it, but when it came to romance, well, there was none.

Agreed, I was totally impressed with Garfield's portrayal of both Peter Parker AND Spiderman.

youre a silly girl who likes cute boys. I also like cute boys, but Garfield could not act at all in this piece-he was truly terrible.

I agree, Garfield didn't act the part as it called for, but you don't need to argue with other views by insulting the person. Total ad-hominem.

There was always something about Maguire's performance that was bugged me, it seemed too forced. And I love Spiderman 2. But Garfield seemed more in tune with that geeky, awkward, slightly cocky side of a teenager. It felt genuine and his emotion was real.

youre a fool-Garfield is a supermodel! Macguire was PERFECT as spiderman-you need to go see Twilight 6 or something...

Not everyone has to agree with your opinion, Norman. And I don't think anyone cares about it, either.

It was a great movie better than the first and third spider-man...

My favorite thing about his performance, was that he managed to act like a teenager without being a stereotype.

I think they botched the character when they tried to fix it. I can see what they were trying, a fun and witty hero, but they get a low mix of all of it.

As an awkward, shy as hell kid, Garfield had me fooled. That probably doesn't get any credibility, but the mannerism, and the timing of his jokes were well in line.
