meh, I didn't pick up on the cane thing at all really.

And as for the wires, I wasn't paying close enough attention at the time, it just occurred to me afterwards.

When I get the bluray or whatever I'll check it more closely.

I saw it years ago when Sam Raimi did it. That was good enough for me.

Whe this movie was over, my 10 year old turned to me and said "I even liked Spiderman 3 better than that." That summed it up for me as well. I hated Spiderman 3 and believe if Sam Rami was left to make the movie he wanted to all would be well. Instead they tell him he will have no say in a fourth movie and he walks. Good decision on his part.

Andrew Garfield is apparently an amazing actor because he did the impossible and made me not like Spiderman. Spidey could have been shot by a random robber and I would have cared less. Give me meek Spiderman any day over the incosiderate jerk who treats everyone like crap and deserves to be a loner. I thought he was poorly written and terribly acted.

I can't say much about the Lizard because I didn't care, he did nothing for me. Gwen was hot because it is Emma stone. But how did she go from not really knowing who he was to in love with him overnight. I think this should have been slow played. Uncle Ben and Aunt May seemed wrong in every way. Dennis Leary was way better than I expected.

Why do and alter the whole origin story? 90% or more of the people going tot his movie knew the origin, why do it again? And if you are going to do it, why didn't Uncle Ben say the words? Everyone knows the words. Nope just gonna have him ramble on like an idiot saying something similar but not nearly as meaningful.

I finally saw this on the weekend. If you liked spiderman 1,2,3 then you'll like this. I'dve preferred a hulk style intro - where the origins/backstory is in the openng credits, then we get a new film rather than a new origins story. I didn't feel the lizard was 'lizardy' enough. I liked the cartoon one with the snout.
Overall, I've seen worse. I might buy this cheap on dvd after it comes out, but it's not going to talk me into a blue ray.
