Being one of the few people who actually enjoyed The Amazing Spider-Man 2, I have found something odd about the film myself.

If you are reading this, I am assuming that you have seen the film and that you are aware of the final swing. What I don't understand is, what is the purpose of slinging a manhole cover at the R.H.I.N.O.? This is far beyond simply nitpicking, but I just don't understand it.

An enormous, metallic, rhinoceros, with machine guns, has just launched three missiles in your direction, and is charging at you, and your first instinct is, "This small, metal disc should do the trick." Seriously, try to imagine how that scene plays out, after the screen fades into darkness.

We can already establish that the manhole cover will do absolutely no damage to R.H.I.N.O., so does that mean that he just takes the hit and keeps charging into Spider-Man, squashing him into the ground?

All the criticism I heard of this movie is nitpicking. But idk, u put petes strength behind the manhole u got damage coming ur way. He deflected the missiles with it, and it not like the suit is adamantium or vibranium

Well, he used it to stop 2 missiles from hitting the people behind him.

Also, if I throw a rock at someone's head, they might get ticked. Maybe knocked out. If a Pro Baseball pitcher does, it could kill them.

Spider-Man isn't just throwing it, but adding a ton of force by putting it an arc.
