just saw it (in 3D)

It had its moments with good special effects and nice camerwork. For a 2 hour film it also felt a little rushed with plot developments like suit creation and web technology done in a blink of an eye. It had less humour than the Maguire movies and the characters are far less complex however it felt a little more real with the high school setting and a great looking New York. The best thing in the film is the wonderful Rhys Ifans (who I walked next to in Soho 2 months ago. He is really tall)

6/10

That's a bloody shame. I was hoping for proper Spidey-quips like the trailer was hinting at with the mugger guy with the knife.

Aww.

I'm hearing a lot of positive feedback from long term Spidey fans actually. Some even saying that the Spiderman you've always imagined in the comic books is actually the one you get to see on screen in the movie. The properly realised spider like agility, the quips, the classic spiderman poses and at last some real chemistry between Peter and Gwen. The Lizard is said to be fantastic too with Rhys Ifans meant to be giving a career defining performance. And lastly Andrew Garfield many are touting as Peter Parker playing Andrew Garfield much like Tony Stark plays RDJ he's that good in the role.

Also the film is meant to have some humour albeit set to a much darker tone.

His career-defining performance was as Eyeball Paul in Kevin & Perry Go Large.

As a "teenager" I did not buy into the super intelligent ability to create the web technology and super suit - all in the comfort of his bedroom. Then again it is a film about a comic book hero..........

I'm not sure the word teenager warrants speech marks.

Seen it now.
There is indeed less humour, though what's there is good. And did he seriously make that suit himself?
Good uses of his agility to fling himself about and twat things.
Gwen is fit, and her eyes look mega-huge at the end.
I'm not so keen on The Lizard as a villain.
Cheesy helpers in the climax.
They pushed what I thought would be in this film...
Spoiler: show
"does he know the truth about his parents?"
...into a sequel hook. Dicks. Wonder what's meant to be going on in that scene too.
Sure I noticed one or two little plot holes while still watching the movie.
The 3D was very subtle. As in it was only obviously where my extra ticket money went at a few points.

Worth watching, but not a classic. Can they link Spidey with the Avengers now? Are the films made by the same people?

I think Spider-man is still licensed out to Sony Pictures. Marvel has said that in the future they hope to regain the rights to all licensed properties so that Spidey and maybe even Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch can appear in a future "Avengers" film.
IMO :P :wink: :P :wink: :P :wink:

The rights will only revert to Disney/Marvel is Sony stop making Spider-Man movies. Which is why they will never stop making Spider-Man movies. Likewise with Fantastic Four & X-Men over at Fox.

Sony got pretty worried about the reaction this film was receiving so prior to it's release they put out a load of trailers. Now someone has put them all together into a 25min movies and apparently it pretty much contains most of the important bits from the film. So if you don't fancy going to the cinema to watch the film you can watch this instead. Obviously it isn't completely accurate at the piece below points out the bits it misses, but it is pretty incredible to see that Sony have released around 25mins of the film in trailers. Things are really getting out of hand with film trailers.
