Not a fan of Spiderman in comics. Was always too American kid and a bit boring. The idea of his odd wall walking and web slinging was better than the stories.

So the movies came along – the well made ones with big budgets – and here we are again with ANOTHER reboot.

S’okay I guess but I wouldn’t rush back to watch it again. There’s humour, some good – and some ordinary – acting but hampered by a dreadful plot and obviously just a vehicle to try getting Spidey into the new Marvel Movie Universe again. Maybe even a breather/fill-in while making the biggies like Avengers and Ironman.

Bad plot, fun from Andrew’s kinda teenage depressed portrayal without getting all Twilight on us. Probably a tad boring for most non-Marvel fans and the traditional addition of older actors for the relatives – Martin and Sally are a good couple and wasted here – isn’t enough to raise the bar.

Keep DVD?

Watch if on TV?

Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Actually have to say Avoid. There’s much better out there.
