In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
Autobots and Decepticons are at war, with humans on the sidelines. Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.

There is a moment in the film where Vulture/Toomes (Michael Keaton) flies up in front of the moon and his silhouette very closely resembles the Bat Signal. Keaton of course portrayed Batman twice in career. See more »
The ferry was still moving forward when the accidental weapon's discharge cuts it in half. Given its inertia and the fact that at least one of the engines/screws would still be turning, one or both parts of the ferry would still be moving forward. Spider Man's webbing would not have had to hold the two pieces together, it would have had to have done so while the two parts were still traveling forward.
The film specifically shows the ferry at a dead stop in the water during the fighting on the deck which caused the accident. There is no way hat this could have occurred. See more »
How many times have I told you not to fire them out in the open?
You said to move the merchandise!
Under the radar! Under the radar! If you bring Damage Control or the Avengers down here, we're through! You're out there, wearing that goofy thing like Mel Carbs, calling yourself the Shocker! "I'm the Shocker! I shock people!" What is this, Pro Wrestling?

Don't expect a superhero movie. This is more like a long comedic sketch parodying Spider-man.
There are so many wrongs in this movie I 've lost count., but most importantly the vision is wrong. I would prefer Raimi/McGuire's vision by far.
Among other things this reboot is missing the transformation from regular Peter Parker to Spiderman. The most interesting thing to the franchise to watch. And of course his relation with his uncle (who doesn't get a single mention in this film) and how his tragic fate was quintessential to his maturity.
They are still trying to show you the transition from a goofy kiddy Spiderman to something more adult but they are failing miserably, because even in the end the character hasn't mature at all.
And it's that "goofy" version of Spiderman that ruins this movie, as a superhero movie. There aren't any real sentiments at all. Just teenage humor and pranks. And the final revelation and connection between Spiderman and the main villain is too ludicrous to swallow.
For its $175 mil. budget this movie is far from impressive too. Not a big spectacle. All that money went for the CGI Spidey jumping back and forth, but the scenes aren't that impressive and there's a lot to be desired.
Overall: This movie is already a success in Box office multiplying the earnings more than 4 times its budget, so the producers must be happy. BUT it's more like a spoof of Spiderman and not a proper superhero movie. For the true origins of Spiderman, his transformation, his relation with his uncle and the impact of his tragic fate on Peter, you must look elsewhere...
