From Amazon.co.uk

For devoted fans and non-fans alike, Spider-Man offers nothing less--and nothing more--than what you'd expect from a superhero blockbuster. Having proven his comic-book savvy with the original Darkman, director Sam Raimi brings ample energy and enthusiasm to Spidey's origin story, nicely establishing high-school nebbish Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) as a brainy outcast who reacts with appropriate euphoria--and well-tempered maturity--when a "super-spider" bite transforms him into the amazingly agile, web-shooting Spider-Man. That's all well and good, and so is Kirsten Dunst as Parker's girl-next-door sweetheart. Where Spider-Man falls short is in its hyperactive CGI action sequences, which play like a video game instead of the gravity-defying exploits of a flesh-and-blood superhero. Willem Dafoe is perfectly cast as Spidey's schizoid nemesis, the Green Goblin, and the movie's a lot of fun overall. It's no match for Superman and Batman in bringing a beloved character to the screen, but it places a respectable third. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) is an ordinary guy who lives with his beloved aunt and uncle and quietly pines for the girl next door, Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst). But when a genetically-modified 'super-spider' bites him while on a school trip, Peter develops unusual skills - fantastic acrobatic strength, supernatural awareness and a talent for web-spinning. It's not until tragedy strikes at home that Peter decides to use his new powers to fight crime under a secret identity: Spider-Man! When the evil Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) attacks the good people of New York and endangers the life of Mary Jane, Peter commits himself to the ultimate tests: to thwart his arch-enemy and to win the heart of the girl that he loves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection at its most perfect! 9 Dec 2002
Format:DVD
Simply fantastic! I loved this film so very much, which is a big achievement since I wanted to hate it when I first went to see it. I'm a big fan of Spiderman, Marvel and all things superhero-like, so while you might think my review might be a bit biased, you couldn't be further from truth. I thought this film would ruin Spiderman and be a cheap cash in on the Spiderman name. Having seen pictures of what the Green Goblin looked like, it practically confirmed my view. But how wrong I was!

The film is just so faithful to Spiderman and the comics. There are so many things that are just so right and done just how they should be! You even have little things such as the high school bully, Flash, in there as well as MJ calling Peter "Tiger" just like she does in the comics and series. Even the phrase "Friendly neighbourhood Spiderman" is in there! The action is amazing, and is just perfect. It really does Spiderman justice, and makes him seem like a proper superhero.

And the Green Goblin is an amazing baddie! I thought he looked like some reject robot or something from photo's I'd seen in magazines, but when you see him in the film, and his voice, it's just perfect, and he comes out with some amazing villain phrases! You really can tell that Stan Lee, the creator of Spiderman, really did go to every extent to make sure that this film was as perfect as it should be with his involvement in the production of this film.

Okay, there are some really cheesy moments (the scene when all the New Yorkers throw stuff is the worst - you'll know what I mean when you see it, and they had the chance to kill Macy Gray - what a wasted opportunity), but the rest of the film is fabulous. I really wanted to hate this film, but I just couldn't help but love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gimpy kid gets bitten by super spider 6 Dec 2002
Format:DVD
To be honest, I was expecting a synical marketing exercise. You know the type of thing, plenty of special effects but little in the way of plot.
Wow, was I wrong. I have two children 9 and 7 and sat back with them expecting to fall asleep within 10 minutes. Instead, the film gripped me from start to finish - it had everything. A decent storyline - 'gimpy kid gets bitten by super spider and turns into a genuine everyday super hero' plus a great villian played by the ever excellent Willen Dafoe.
And as for the effects. - STUNNING. The fight scenes with the Green Goblin are amazing. Spideman's costume is a work of art too - and this alone, in my mind at least, elevates it above the likes of Batman and Superman.
This is one of those rare films that manages to please the entire family. I'd be quite happy to sit back and watch it again with the kids or indeed on my own.
Something for all ages and sets the standard for which similar films will be judged.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Worth The Extra Cash! 22 May 2004
Format:DVD
For some strange reason, I never got around to buying 'Spiderman' on DVD, but when I saw that a 'deluxe' edition was being released with a third disc of extras, I felt that the time had come to finally purchase it. It comes nicely packaged, with a cardboard sleeve to house the amaray case, but once unwrapped, I was shocked to see that the third disc was simply thrown in; No, not part of the overall package, but slipped in between the cardboard sleeve and the main case (which is the regular two disc version of 'Spiderman' available)! It has its own cardboard sleeve (like those that you get with free CD's in Sunday newspapers!) and this cheapens the item further!! There is no compartment to store it, therefore being a little useless as it is now sitting in a drawer rather than on my DVD cabinet! The disc has some interesting extras though, from the costume and set designs to looking at certain scenes in detail, and there are some sneek peeks at 'Spiderman 2', however, these can be seen on TV all the time, and the trailer can be viewed on the Apple Quicktime website. This would have felt like more of a complete package had it had all the extras bundled into less discs, but the price cannot be justified and it was a disappointing buy. Buy the regular two disc version for less, the extras just aren't worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility! 8 May 2014
Format:DVD
This is who I wanted to be when I grew up!

`Spider-Man' is my absolute favourite superhero movie when I was growing up through my teenage years. It's a classic! This movie inspired me to become who I am today. It's got everything. Life lessons, action adventure, romance and creepy crawlies with eight legs that shoot webs and one can bite you to give you superhuman powers. I love everything about this movie and I have fond memories.

This movie was released in the cinemas in 2002. I didn't get to see this film since Spider-Man was a thing I wasn't readily interested in. I only became interested in Spider-Man when my mum and dad bought me the cartoon DVD - 'Spider-Man - The Ultimate Villain Showdown' - which became a great guide in knowing who the character of Peter Parker/Spider-Man was and getting to know all the villains he faced such as the Green Goblin, Doc Ock and Venom. From that DVD, I really wanted to see the movie and hoped it would meet my expectations.

`Spider-Man' the movie became my number one Christmas present in 2002. I enjoyed every minute of this film and loved the story and the characters and the actors who played them. Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Willem Dafoe and James Franco led a top notch cast and the movie is fantastically directed by Sam Raimi. I watched this film over again and again during the Christmas holidays and certainly afterwards as it became an obsession of mine. I was an immediate Spider-Man fan through the movie as well as the comics, cartoon shows and various other mediums it has successfully transgressed into.

This is a special 2-disc DVD for `Spider-Man'.
