Thought it was better than the Toby Maguire ones in almost every way, quite enjoyed the humour too but it did lose its way in places. It felt more "real" (in as much as is possible given the material) than previous efforts but Batman Begins/The Dark Knight is still the best for comic book films in that regard.
Quoted from 2013, but watched this for the first time last night.
I quite enjoyed it for what it was 7/10.
Saying that, it took fucking ages to get going and I think it could have had a lot more action. I've not seen any Spidey movies so can't comment on the Maguire versions. I thought The Lizard was a fucking stupid villain and Peter Parker came across as so fucking young/green. The love interest didn't even get her kit off either. Additional bonus: Mrs FER is shit scared of spiders so it was nice to see her cowering behind a cushion for most of the film
I understand there's a sequel. Anyone seen it?
