    You were kinder than another critic, but your review also makes me want to see the film more because I also grew up reading Spider-Man comics. They were always half action, half soap opera, and I think that was the appeal. So, a little more soap may not be such a bad thing.

    Saw this one yesterday. Thought the villain was just ok, but really liked the movie. Garfield and Stone were great. Great review.

    I disagree with review completely. The film was horrible.
