This film features two characters who carry the supervillain title "The Shocker": Herman Schultz the original Shocker, and Jackson W. Brice, who was the Shocker in The Spectacular Spider-Man (2008). (Brice was actually known as Montana in the comics, due to being a former cowboy who could wield a rope). See more »
The Vulture wears a flight jacket, but not an actual G-force pressure suit. This means that during any of his numerous acrobatics while in flight and during his acceleration, he would be subjecting himself to Gs beyond what could be tolerated by a normal human without passing out. Without a pressure suit, the blood in his body would remain in his lower extremities during these maneuvers and he would remain unconscious until he crashed into an object or the ground. See more »
Gave this a low 3 out of 10 because basically this new spiderman is just 'baby ironman's junior high school days'. It wasn't a terrible movie, but it's blatantly aimed at junior high/high school kids... which was weird because the theatre I was in on Fridsy evening was mainly mid twenties and up... The story was OK and with this being the third spidermen reboot since 2000, I guess they couldn't really have done another 'boy gets bitten by spider, boys uncle gets killed, boy becomes good spiderman' movie, but I wish they had just made stand alone spiderman. Not 'baby spiderman meets father figure Avengers member Ironman'
I think this movie was made to appeal to the 50 percent or so of children in America being raised in a single parent household... great for them, but not so much for 35 year old, Toby maguire spiderman fan me.
So overall s disappointing movie, not terrible, just far, far, far from great.
