Originally there was suppose to be two other villains with The Lizard in the film Proto-Goblin, and Big Wheel (both old comic book villains). But they were both cut (Big Wheel was just an idea before being cut) because the movie would have been too long, there would have been too many origins, and there would have been too many fight scenes. Irrfan Khan plays Dr. Rajit Ratha, the character who would have been the Proto-Goblin. See more »
When Gwen Stacy visits Peter Parker's house at the end of the movie, Peter stands on the porch in front of the glass door. Behind the glass it is dark suggesting that the light is off. However, when Peter re-enters numerous lights are on inside the front hallway. See more »
Predictability, uninteresting action sequences, and an awful soundtrack keep this film from being on par or even setting its self apart from the previous decade's Spiderman.
First off, this is only my opinion, but really my biggest issue with this film was that it was just kinda boring. About 30 minutes in, I already knew fundamentally everything significant that would transpire in the film. Now that in itself might be a given some might argue, however at that point in the movie, I assumed I would still enjoy it as I expected some spectacular action. Had I been impressed with the fight scenes and jumping around being Spiderman I don't think I would have cared as much about the boring story because it would be redeemed in another aspect.
However, the action and special effects in the film were also...kinda...boring. In fact the most spectacular visual moment in the entire film where Spiderman jumps of the top of the tower antenna, and it falls with him as he saves himself was already shown to us in the trailer. I won't go into the fight sequences but for me there was just never really a moment that made my heart race.
Lastly the soundtrack was terrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrible, feeling very out of place in many parts, most notably the fight between the Lizard and Spiderman in the High School. I would normally assume in a scene like that, which is Spiderman and the Lizard's first real physical confrontation, for the music to be more menacing, however it opts for a very happy and victorious theme music. Considering Spiderman doesn't exactly whoop the Lizard there, it's a little out of place. There is however a memorable humorous scene in that altercation.
So...this is just kinda boring and not very exiting, as far as movies like this, I personally enjoyed more "The A Team","Red","The Avengers","Thor", the first two Spidermans, (Spiderman 3 was terrrrrrible).
