Elfman was perfect

a swinging Superhero motif out of his typical agile "spiderish" style completely hit the nail.

Horner seems between a cheap variation of Elfman and (seriously?) Titanic (again...)

Zimmer? The music is not bad (unless you hate the RC approach on action movies in general) but while the Copland style fanfare is cool (really) it would have rather been for Superman (though probably not "Man of Steel" - after hearing the score and assuming that Zimmer is no complete idiot, i rather skipped that Superman deconstruction) - maybe Zimmer is compensating here ;-)
I do not see where this rousing theme would fit any Spiderman character i'm familar with - but hey, maybe after turning Superman into Batman, Spiderman will become the new Superman... d'ohh!
