    Was he accurate?

    What parts did he take?

    Was changing the character to fit high school student in more recent years good? Is Spider-Man too standard for an updated take? Or is their an updated take cartoons succeeded at displaying, and this film failed at doing so?

    Any further comments?

    I thought he was actually pretty close to the comics more so than Toby Maguire, Garfield managed to show Peters humor and personality a lot more than Toby ever did.

    He was fantastic as both, but I also think a couple of writing choices perhaps distracted from his ability to nail the character. Lots of overly-emotional scenes, and not enough reinforcement of Peter's honesty and conviction.

    He needed to develop into a more classic hero, but we won't get to see that happen now... Too bad. :(

    Damn, I thought this was gonna be a debate over how faithful was Garfield: The Movie to the comics.
