From Amazon.co.uk

Let’s deal with the films quickly. The first Spider-Man movie arrived after the webslinger had been stuck in Hollywood development hell for the best part of a decade at least. Introducing Tobey Maguire in the title role, it was a strong opener for the franchise, and laid the path towards the inevitable sequel. And what a sequel Spider-Man 2 was: genuinely expanding on the ground of the first film, and introducing the best villain of the series to date with Doctor Octopus, it remains a very high peak for the franchise. Film three? Not so good, with three villains fighting for attention space, and Spidey himself hardly at his best. It was still a decent film, just not up to the standards of those that preceded it.

Yet whichever your favourite of the Spider-Man films is, you’re still likely to be blown away by its Blu-ray transfer. Given that the movies are among the most expensive of the past decade to make, it’s unsurprising that they’re packed with details, and that they splatter the screen with colour, action and frenetic swinging through the city streets. The colour palette looks terrific in high definition, and the vibrancy of the soundstage too makes these potential reference discs.

You get a fair selection of extras across the three films too, and all this bodes well for the release of the fourth Spider-Man movie in 2011. Until then, this Blu-ray set is very much worthy of your time and financial investment. --Jon Foster

5.0 out of 5 stars Full list of extras 11 July 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I'm not going to do a traditional review for this set: it looks great, it sounds great, it's dirt-cheap, and that's pretty much all you need to know. Other reviews will go into more detail about these things.

What I AM going to do here is clear up a bit of confustion regarding the special features and whatnot. While the backs of the individual Blu-ray cases seem to list all of the extras, they are NOT complete and do not mention several of the extras that are actually on the discs. The reviews on here listing the features are just taken from the backs of the boxes, so hopefully this will make everything clear. So, without further ado, here's the full list. (All special features are from the original 2-disc DVDs unless stated otherwise.)

4.0 out of 5 stars "..NICE STEELBOOK PACKAGE.." 12 Jun 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Not a bad package for the price as you get all 3 original spider-man movies in good HD picture form, not as awesome as the amazing spider-man reboot but still worth having for a bit of fun, I guess spider-man 2 still holds its ground as a solid comic-book movie, and sandman in part 3 is pretty badass, if you looking at upgrading these its certainly worth it, very cool steelbook, on the back it only lists a couple of features as they probably didn't have room to print them, lazy really as you do get much more, practically all the original features are here on all 3 discs so don't worry, and you get the extended cuts option.

Format:Blu-ray
A great trilogy overall. The third is, in my opinion, the weakest (still a good movie though) due to there being too many underdeveloped villains and the transformation of Spiderman to the dark Spiderman (which I was most looking forward to) is done very poorly. Instead of Peter / Spidey turning dark and wrestling with his demons along the lines of Clark Kent / Superman in Superman 3 which could have been a great story arc, what do we get? Peter Parker just turning into a bit of an arrogant slimeball which is just uncomfortable to watch and not the least bit interesting. It does have some merits, effects are great and some of the action is well done. The villain Venom is very good but arrives with too little too late. Sandman is basically a good guy under extreme personal pressure and so I was more rooting for him more than wanting him to be defeated.
I believe Spiderman 2 is the strongest, with a great villain in Doctor Octopus played by the wonderful Alfred Molina who we feel for but want defeated at the same time. His character is probably the strongest of all the trilogy and the reboot come to that. The first movie is very good but the green goblin as the antagonist I'm on the fence with ( a bit too cartoonish?). Still very entertaining though.
At the selling price of around 5 - 10 quid you can not go wrong especially it being on blu ray! Ironically, the weakest of the three, Spidey 3 , gets the best hi-def transfer in both audio and video. All of them are a big step up from dvd.
So my advice is to go and get caught in this web of damn good entertainment. Enjoy!
