I saw it last night.
Frankly, I really enjoyed it.
It wasn’t perfect – there were a few things they did wrong. I don’t like the way they handled the ‘I let a burglar go and he killed my uncle’ part.
Aunt may was too young, and Peter... he looked like they wanted him to be ultra-cool.
I never bought him as 'my' Peter Parker, but that didn't detract much from my enjoyment of the movie.
He was a really cool, spiky-haired skateboarder with an attitude and a bit of a problem with authority.
Wait... that wasn’t Peter Parker. That was Bart Simpson!
The rest of the cast were perfect.
It was all a little too tied into Osborne Corp, making them the cause of everything. They needed to get out from those apron strings a little.
There were a few things that were dumb, but not enough to make me feel dumb for watching it.
Overall, yeah, it’s great! Two thumbs up.
The audience seemed to have a good time; we laughed in all the right places (with the movie, not at it).
The tone was dark and serious enough without being depressing and dull. It was unserious enough to laugh at itself without getting goofy and stupid.
It had a reasonable attitude to ordinary people.
If the Fantastic Four movie had found that level, I think it would've been one of the greats.
The Lizard looked like Killer Croc instead - a little too human for The Lizard (though with a tail). I kind of wished he'd quit taking off the lab coat that makes his look so distinctive in the comics (he'd wear it for a few seconds at a time, then rip it off).
James Horner's score was great (might've been too intrusive, for those who care about that), and if he repeated himself, I didn't notice. (He repeats himself a lot.)
They didn't get everything right, but I really liked it.
