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.
Two years have passed, and the mild-mannered Peter Parker faces new challenges as he struggles with "the gift and the curse," desperately trying to balance his dual identities as the web-slinging superhero Spider-Man and his life as a college student. Tormented by his secrets, Peter finds that his relationships with all those he holds dear are in danger of unravelling. His life-long yearning for M.J. (Kirsten Dunst) becomes even stronger as he fights the impulse to reveal his secret life and declare his love. His friendship with Harry Osborn (James Franco) is complicated by the young Osborn's bitterness over his father's death and his growing vendetta against Spider-Man. Even Peter's beloved Aunt May (Rosemary Harris), who has fallen on hard times after the death of Uncle Ben, begins to have doubts about her nephew.
New York City is in the throes of Spider-mania, and Peter Parker finally has the girl of his dreams. But just when it seems like things can't get any better, Spider-Man must fight the most terrifying trio of villains he's ever encountered—the deadly Sandman, the New Goblin, and Venom—plus the enemy he discovers within himself.

The first Spider-man introduces us to Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire), and covers the genesis of the infamous superhero. Set against Willem Dafoes Green Goblin, its a deft, impressive and entertaining blockbuster, albeit one that takes a little longer than youd like to get motoring.
Spider-man 2 is the business, though. This is the one with Alfred Molinas stunning Doctor Octopus, although he has to share the screen with the title character contending with his dual life, and the effect on his relationship with Mary-Jane (Kirsten Dunst). It could have gone wrong, but its so tightly put together that its one of the very best blockbusters of recent times.
Spider-man 3, inevitably, cant quite match the standard set, but you cant fault it for ambitious. Mixing in Topher Grace as Venom, Thomas Haden Church as Sandman and James Franco as the new Green Goblin, its a lot to fit into one film, and thats what bogs things down. However, when it does hit its stride, Spider-man 3 is a rip-roaring ride in its own right. --Jon Foster--This text refers to the DVD edition. See all Product description
