Bleh, what a disappointing movie. I'm pretty forgiving of big budget summer fun popcorn escapist comic book movies but this one was just bland. I didn't read spiderman comics so I'm not concerned with continuity in that regard. But I would have rather seen Spiderman 4 with Tobey than this rehash. Can't believe how similar it was to the last spiderman, can't believe they didn't take a page out of Nolan's batman-making book to step the series up. You've seen this movie a hundred times before, wait for DVD.

Looks stupid; not interested.

Spiderman 2 is the best super hero movie yet, there was no need for a re-imagining of the series and a stupid origin plot.

goddamn, what a shitty diasppointment of a movie, and a waste of hundreds of millions of dollars that would have been better spent feeding the children of liberia


Imagine that, if this and John Carter werent made and the money was given to Liberia instead, the whole country would be dragged out of the third world. Instead of happy healthy liberians, we have the new Spiderman and John Carter

my quick n dirty review
beautiful film (watched it on digital projection). Never seen teen wolf , so I don't understand the reference. It did feel like saturday morning cartoons in parts. But I didnt mind that. To me, this spiderman, exist in a totally different "universe" from tobey macguires. So the reboot makes sense too me, i don't mind it at all. I enjoyed it for what it is.

I loved the action scenes too. Solid, no disconnected quick cuts ...this movie's action scene is the anti- michael bay. Its less ADD, and its more focus and still, if u get what i mean. The camera likes to linger in certain areas, so it makes for some iconic moments.

//
ps, don't want to contradict myself, but i can pretend now, that spiderman3 never existed, so by extension, this is the true spiderman continuum.

I had similar thoughts on the new actor. Slightly better Spiderman/Way worse Peter.

Personally, I think I would've preferred a Spider-Man 4 to this - I missed the Bruce Campbell cameos.

I also was all like during Uncle Ben's death scene. Overall an entertaining 7/10 though

pretty good movie, garfield is good, and it was funnier than i was expecting, based off of the trailer

at first i was kinda annoyed, i was expecting a dark knight, sorta feel, then they start cracking jokes, but it grew on me

7.5/10

I don't like how he never found his Uncle's killer either. He kept searching and busting these random duded but never found the actual killer

Perfect for a sequel though... that could guy lead to something else (a villain?) and/or lead to a darker side of Spiderman (if he kills him).

SPOILER:

The whole Gwen promise sets up the sequel to be just like Spiderman 2... I mean in the sense that he obviously loves her but doesn't want to endanger her. But that last smirk by her could change everything.

I really hope they kill Gwen Stacy. That needs to happen, regardless if it occurs in part two or three, seeing as how its a trilogy..

It's basically guaranteed. Emma Stone even acknowledged that she knows her character will die sometime in the trilogy.... but honestly I'm really hoping it's NOT in the 2nd movie, save it for the third (because if not then they'd do something stupid like have Peter have a new love interest- Mary Jane- in the third), the Gwen-Peter relationship was amazing in this one and I wanna see more of it. Especially how it ended, they've left plenty to keep her for 2 more movies and kill her in the 3rd.

Yeah it seems like this one sacrificed the whole Daily Bugle part of Peter Parker to focus on the science oriented Peter.... which I prefer, but I'd like Jameson in the movie at some point.

I like that they didn't try to throw too much out there too quickly, it made the story flow better and made the character interactions more meaningful.

But, the sequel will definitely need to intoduce the Daily Bugle and Jameson.
I imagine the burglar and Norman Osborn will be a big part of the next installment.
