Ever have low expectations of a film and then when you finally watched it you were pleasantly surprised?
Well, that didn’t happen here.
Let me first say that I thought the acting, directing, CGI were all excellent.
Too bad the story felt bloated and forced, and the worst part was, the villain was just flat out BORING.
I understand that since this was the “origin” story that we have to yet again learn about Poor Peter Parker and his pathetic family life, and his relation to what’s her name.
Of course, we also have to watch as he learns how to use his powers. SNORE.
I know that this is a super hero movie and I am supposed to suspend my disbelief, But one thing that really bothered me was this – Peter Parker is supposed to be really smart – but he used BING for his searches? BULLSHIT. No one uses Bing except for the idiots who haven’t figured out that you can use the web not using internet explorer.
That told me that he was a friggin lucky dipshit with powers – (Oh, by the way, apparently, anyone can get them, just get bitten by a special spider) LAME.
And then all the lizards (IN NEW YORK FUCKING CITY, since you know, it’s like Florida where Geckos run everywhere.) I’ve been to NYC over a dozen times in my life, during the summer and have yet to see a GODAMN FUCKING LIZARD.
Oh, and those lizards that Peter saw? OF COURSE they crawl towards the sewer (Which is where this movie belongs) AMAZING! Shouldn’t BING have told him that?
I hate to slam a movie because it takes talented people to put these together and so I blame this entirely on the screenwriters. They had an easy villain with predictable outcomes and blah, blah, blah, Spider-Man has to save the day.
I’m sure this movie will easily make over 200 Million at the box office, since people love Spider-Man and put their fanboy blinders on when watching it.
I already know that Dark Knight Rises will be better, and that’s just from watching the trailers.
Anyone else sit through this crap? Share your thoughts below!
