Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

    It was a good film. Nothing more, nothing less. Keaton did a lot with an embarrassingly little to do. Holland was good, his friends and classmates were really annoying and awful. Best use of RDJ since Iron Man 1. Very poor cg though. Not as good of fights as Spider-Man 1 and ASM 1 though. Just way too fake looking for what it should be

      Lol “nothing more, nothing less” who talks like that.

        Someone who doesn’t get hyperbolic about good, not great films. Unlike the rest of the morons out there
