A headache of nonstop concepts and overselling itself.

I was glad when it was over. The excessive exagerations, The carnival atmosphere mixed with a light show and relentless pace. I love Spider Man, but I found this to be overly childish, try hard and frentic. Seeing Spider HAM was nice, but I think we would have more enjoyed a movie about just him than seemingly every conceivable random thought that was ever published in a SM comic book. There are a few moments, but there's no breathing room to enjoy the moments and when it's over, you feel like you just witnessed an overly sugared child finally crash and zonk out on the floor. "Thank god that's over".
