    Sony Pictures’ follow-up to its 2012 reboot doesn't land in U.S. theaters until May 2, but audiences in Europe are beginning to get a look at the wall-crawler's latest adventure...

    One piece of criticism that had Sony Pictures’ public relations team reaching for the Tums, was Oliver Lyttelton's evisceration of the film. The Playlist critic slapped the picture with a D rating, grousing that it made him consider avoiding future Spider-Man films like the plague. From an over-stuffed plot to scenery-chewing performances, nothing escaped Lyttelton's withering gaze.

    “The sequel, hitting less than two years after the first (and respectively, two and four years before the already-scheduled third and fourth films, not to mention the ‘Sinister Six’ and ‘Venom’ spin-offs that are in the works) doesn't just double down on what didn't work in the first film, it manages to undo some of the good qualities of the original as well,†Lyttelton wrote. â€The result is a film that kicks off the summer blockbuster season with a resounding thud.â€

    Lyttelton's review was savage, but David Edwards’ assessment may have been even worse.

    In a take-down of the sequel, the Daily Mirror critic evoked “Batman & Robnâ€...

    Reviewers are making the mistake of reviewing these newer ones like something other than straight to DVD babysitting videos for kids and tweens.

    These superhero movies are getting horrible. Just watched Man of Steel. It was basically Transformers with Superman added in. No dialogue, no acting, no real story, just a bunch of bad CGI fights every other minute. Barely made it through it.

    What I truly don't understand is why in this day and age of CGI and good costumes, can't the goddam movie studios stay true to the comic characters. Spiderman is a normal nerdy little guy. Electro is a WHITE MAN! and Rhino is not a giant transformer looking robot thing with a human face. Why do they change the powers of the XMen? Nick Fury is a white guy!!! Ugh. Pass.

    That was my last Spidey post. Howard will love it. lol

    Man Of Steel wore me down after the 2nd time. I don't dislike it as much anymore but the last Batman where he quits over a gf still bothers me.

    If the film rights to Spiderman remain dormant for too long, they revert back to Marvel. That's why Sony keeps churning the movies out, because if too much time passes, they will lose the rights. Not a great reason to make movies but it's the truth. Damn shame too because Marvel studios (now Disney) is making vastly superior movies. It's also the reason you will never see Spiderman or the X-Men (Fox owns the rights) pop up in the Avengers.

    Rebooting after Tobey Maguire was a fine idea, but the casting, story, writing and acting have all been a disaster.

    The writing team has some solid and consistent performers, but there are 4 of them and rumors of studio meddling. That usually leads to a bloated and convoluted plot. And the director, Marc Webb, is a music video director who's out of his depth.
