With violence notably tougher than usual, it lacks the sheer-fun factor of Spider-Man, yet shies away from the follow-through on moral complexity - indeed, shifting the action-man from conflicted to gung-ho flirts with Bronsonian vigilantism… Johnson's scrappy construction fails him and everyone else (check that glaring 'fallacy of the talking killer' moment ) as the showdown approaches. Not unambitious, then, but most successful as a set-up for a sequel; the spadework's been done now.
(Trevor Johnston, Time Out)
It's better than The Phantom, less good than Spider-Man, and far inferior to Tim Burton's Batman.
(Philip French, Observer)
