My feeling is positive because it doesn't drop the ball in any area...except the whole soul of the movie. Unless maybe you're in junior high, it doesn't make you feel anything. Maybe because there's nothing you haven't seen before here. It's predictably predictable.It's a mixed bag. For example:Pro - good cgi Con - it's way overusedPro - good retelling of origin Con - why?? why, when everyone knows it. Sick of origins.Pro - well acted Con - it's not well shot & cut, it's brutally sterile and safe despite the Nolan aping.Marc Webb can direct people talking to each other just great but everything else is amateur hour. It felt like it could've been television. The cinematography indeed is going for Chris Nolan and David Fincher. Did that help? Not at all. And where was the fun that Raimi brought? You could feel a director's personality in his films. This one has none. At one point I had to notice that there were about 100 shots in a row that were about 1.9 seconds long each. It went on for 2 minutes, I swear to God, you'll see it too. A lot of the movie is too much like that.Now, there's nothing about it that falls flatter than anything else. I was worried how they would treat the characters, especially Dr. Connors, but it was all perfectly acceptable. Better than expected. Even the unnecessarily Hulkish "The Lizard" cgi that looked super ugly compared to the comics.Also good is that, at the end of the day, it's closer to comics-accurate than the Raimi trilogy since it's Gwen and her dad and whatnot instead of Mary Jane, and even Doc Ock in Spider-Man 2 was given a Doc Connors backstory that was aggravating as a comic reader. So this is the first time I've had to complain that a movie was comics accurate but wasn't one of the best because of it. It didn't make for an emotional experience at all. Except for watching Emma Stone, not that Garfield isn't an even better Spider-Man/Peter than Tobey McGuire.It's just a lifeless movie. It's evident of a novice filmmaker. Some shots were 100% recreated from Daredevil, Hulk, Iron Man and even Hellboy. With a somber look and final dastardly plot stolen out of the first X-Men and umpteen others.So I was relieved at the story they brought to the screen, yet I didn't feel much more while watching than I did Green Lantern and Ghost Rider. Perhaps it's the yet-another-origin movie and a retelling of the same hero origin once again. GET ON WITH IT! Clever filmmakers would've started the movie with a rampaging Lizard in New York and take the viewer on a journey to unravelling the story, even just a little bit. Here.........where's the mystery? Every step of the way you know what's going to happen next. You've seen it all before. This movie is basically a great collection of greatest hits from every previous superhero film. It's a product of the 2000s superhero genre but it is 2012. He set out to remake Spider-Man in the way of the game-changing Batman Begins / Dark Knight, but unfortunately for Marc Webb, Avengers changed the game again right before this dated episode came out. Maybe the next movie will be his chance to do something original. For now, Spider-Man has gone from the genesis of the modern superhero film to the definition of its mediocrity.
