After recent events, LA 92 is extremely raw and gut-wrenching. Deeply admire this filmmaking approach.
It still has the Raimi charm but overall I think the plot is what fails this movie.
Peter Parker becomes a jerk way before the symbiote affects him and that makes me roll my eyes a bit because Peter learned an awful lot in Spider-Man 2.
One of the main message of that movie is that what makes you Spider-Man that Peter Parker, a good person is under that costume. If that person becomes corrupted, Spider-Man will be corrupted too…
