WHAT I LIKED: This Holland kid was great-his PPP [Peter Parker Portrayal] wasalmost as spot on as Tobe Maguire's. Ned was an amusing addition- if a bit cliched. Keaton was great as always. The action sequences were fun but really hard to follow at times. I particularly liked the Washington Monument escapade.
WHAT I HATED: Pretty much everything else. To wit: If you're going to make the Spidey suit the star of the film and you must buy one at Target at least get the Deluxe model. Peter Parker is Spider-man not the costume- he's not the 'Iron-Spider-Man! I don't recall him being mentored by Stark. Aunt May the hot middle aged hippie chick? Metro-sexual Flash bullying Peter with.. sarcasm? Where was JJJ??? Who's this Lex and who is this anti-MJ and where's Gwen Stacey? I'd even settle for a Betty Brandt Easter egg but there's no Daily Bugle. Having panned the movie I still give it a 6.5 based on Holland, Keaton and the general light fun tone of the picture.
Seriously, I know I'm a curmudgeon sometimes but it's not just nostalgia. Ditko & Lee got it right the first time- why must they feel they must always update things that are ageless anyway???
And if you can reboot a series this often can we please please please do over the Green Hornet right away? Sheesh!
