I don't know if anyone else agrees but I think that Sam Raimi's Spiderman films didn't have enough action, they had mostly drama and few kickass action scenes. Especially Spiderman 3 suffered from this

This reboot could really use more action and be a little more intense

Though, a youtube user named Spiderman2o29 said that he indeed has seen the script and because of the small budget the film's gonna be "more dramatic than the action packed movies that Sam Raimi delivered to us"

What do you guys think about this?:csad:
 
Didn't they say when they confirmed the reboot that this would have a little less battles and more focus on the characters or something? Correct me if I'm wrong.
 
I thought Raimi's films had a pretty good balance, particularly in Spider-Man 2. Only a few battles but when they happened they were really epic.
 
Well the first thing we need to care about first is the character development and drama. Since The Lizard is going to appear and Captain Stacy will most likely die at the end, expect a lot of drama. Then you can focus on the action. It's not necessarily a bad thing.
 
I thought the Raimi movies had the right amount balance of action and drama except for maybe the third movie which probably had a bit too much "mush"

But I would hope they get the balance right, lack of action can be excused in place of a compelling story. So if for some reason they can't deliver much on action then its important that they get the story right.
 
My problem with the dramatic scenes in Raimi's movies were that they were boring for me. I felt too disconnected to really care what was going on and I just wasn't excited or even entertained. Hell, the times I was entertained was in SM3 and that was for all the wong reasons.
 
I want Humor to play a part in this reboot. Raimi's films took Spider-Man a bit too seriously, when actually if you get a hold of a character like this, you can do great things with him
 
Raimi's movies didn't have enough action? What?

I agree, the Raimi films had the right amount of action and drama. As far as SM3, I feel like that was the Spider-Man film that Sony wanted moreso than Raimi himself.
