Granted - but at least the story actually dealt with why the police were paralyzed. How many action flicks are there which take place in major urban centers where the entire police force seems to consist of 4 guys who just get shot or wreck their cars within 5 seconds of coming on screen? I mean, seriously - how many cops did you ever see in a Spider-Man movie, even with supervillains attacking large public gatherings?
That's true. There seems in superhero films either a complete absence of the police or they are incompetent.

While the underground holding of virtually the entire police force is an implausible plot device it didn't distract from the film generally. I was just nitpicking.
