Flash Thompson. Kinda' took me outta the movie right at the beginning. No school today would allow a violent psychopath like that to run around and attack people. He would be expelled. It was ridiculous and over the top. Also, if the school didn't do anything, someone would have captured the bullying on video and posted it on Reddit. Then later on he's all lovey dovey on Pete because Ben died. The filmmakers make it seem like we should suddenly like this character. WTH? Such a drastic, unsupported change in character. The Flash in the beginning would have probably been glad to kill Peter if he could get away with it.
