    Keanu Reeves is pretty poor, but Maguire is good. Check out Cider House Rules or Seabuscuit for example. Two great films (the former being one of my favourites full stop).

    Keanu reeves is generally an ok actor, but just is rubbish if badly directed (compare his acting in the first matrix compared to his awful one-liners in the sequels)
    Tobey maguire is ok too, and he carries spiderman well cos he was cast prefectly for that character.
    Christian bale in batman begins though - unbeatable. And hes a Brit :p:

    Bale is the perfect Batman, hands down the best cast superhero ever.

    Next time they say that, ask them to picture Michael Keaton kicking several peoples asses at once. It's just_not_possible. Plus he really doesn't do the whole angry brooding thing very well, just comes off as an arrogant ponce.

    edit: Though they're still great movies!

    haha yeh thats because the tim burton films were incredibly perfect.... Batman Begins, terrible!!! Bale might have been closer to the comic book batman, but keaton was wayyy better actor AND batman

    yeh toby mcguires ok i suppose! he CAN act.

    Thank you!:eek:


    According to some people, Tobey Meguire communicates alot of emotions through his eyes while acting and that's supposed to take alot of skill. Hmmm.

    Interesting fact: Christian Bale used to go to my school. My friend answered a call from him to our Headmaster the other day and was like 'WAIT, YOU'RE BATMAN!' down the phone. :P

    Okay, i'm done - I just find that very exciting. >,<

    Anyway, i'm not really sure if I liked Maguire in Spiderman - tbh, I didn't particularly like either of the movies. In Cidar House Rules, as already stated he is excellent however.

    Toby, isn't one of my favourites, no. I will agree that he did good in The Cider House Rules.

    Keanu is more of a type cast actor. But he does have this strong, silent person image that's good. It was great for him in Speed and The Matrix.

    to be honest he was rubbish compared to the others in The Matrix.... maybe because it was the worst character. Important, but rubbish

    Is everyone basing their comments on Spider-Man 1 and 2 exclusively?
