Product Description

Product Description

Previously Enjoyed & Fully Guaranteed


For devoted fans and nonfans 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

Comic book adaptations are a mixed bunch, ranging from the excellent (Superman) to the excremental (Batman and Robin). And thankfully the latest superhero film is right up there with the greats. Tobey Maguire IS Spiderman, swinging around buildings, saving the world from Green Goblins and so on. His transformation from geeky Peter Parker to the ultra-cool Spidey is outstanding. Kirsten Dunst is good as his love interest. Throughout the film's running time, the action set pieces are well paced and inventive. The action is brilliantly done and thrilling, and the CGI blends seamlessly with the live action stunts.
Fans of the comic will not be disappointed, for the film stays true to it's origins, yet has enough adventure to make it new and attention-grabbing. Director Sam Raimi (the Evil Dead films) has created a world, which is fun and adventurous. There are problems; William Dafoe is limited in his performance as The Green Goblin, with the restraining suit creating a somewhat gauche characterisation. And Raimi sometimes goes a bit far with the retina-popping visuals. Regardless, it's first-class popcorn- munching entertainment, with enough action and FX to satisfy audiences.

Okay yes I know it's an oldie but I just re-wated the first Spidey movie so I figured why not review it.

Summary: You know the story, toss in a Hollywood romance, and the usual butchering of established plots and you have this movie.

The Good: it's Spidey and Spidey is cool. The storyline was good and caught all the important Spidey elements. The acting I thought was great even though I did balk at Mr. Maguire (sp) playing Paker. J.J.J. was amazing. I still think he was the best part of the movie.

The Bad: The special effects just weren't that great. When I saw this in theaters I don't remember noticing all the horrible blue/green screening, but now I sure notice it. Maybe effects have advanced enough in the last couple years, or maybe it was always bad and I just missed it. There are some horrible shots in this, mostly involving people falling or flying through the air, as it's a Spidey movie there is of course a lot of that.

The Ugly: Why did they have to mess with established story. Sure they muck these up when they release them, I expect that, but totally dropping a character like Gwen Stacey just seems wrong. Plus this is supposed to be based on the Ulitmate Spiderman series and not the original, but even that has Gwen MJ and Peter in a love triangle (well until Carnage gets involved).

I personally hated the Goblin's costume.

Summary: sure you have all seen it, but just in case: If you like Super Heroes see this, but don't expect it to follow any known storyline or mythos. The themes are all there but how they get expressed is wonky. If you like action movies this will be great, if you like effects this will be good except you will be cringing at some horrible bluescreens. If you like romances you might even dig this. Well worth seeing, and I even enjoyed watching it for the second time.

1. Humanity: What events in the film drove Peter Parker to adopting his vigilante attitude toward crime?
2. Implications: How is Spiderman's understanding of "with great power comes great responsibility" an example of contemporary American thought? Think specifically about the nature of evil and the propensity toward intense individual classification when one's existence becomes threatened.
3. Evolution: Spiderman was a hero born out of the 60s, springing from both the dangers of genetic manipulation and the problems of substance abuse (in the form of Oscorp Chemicals). Raimi makes little mention of the chemical abuse in the story, and paints it in a much simpler picture of the probable evil in man's soul and the strange world of pseudoscience. Therefore, it is obvious that in many ways, the film departs from its traditional conditioning while remaining loyal to the original personalities of the characters. In which ways is Spiderman the hero shown to be a creation of the contemporary age, versus a creation of the 60s, in the film?
4. Realism: America has a long history, not only in comics but in legendary history, of people who take the law into their own hands. If a being like Spiderman existed, could he survive in our real world, or is he only a dream?
5. Stageplay: Spiderman is classicly a cynic, an individual thinker, an avid contemporarian (someone "in" the times), a man of passions (versus someone who could care less), an irreligious jokester and a man who is not sure of his destiny, but lives to succeed. Do you feel Maguire fulfills this role? Some critics say he is too much of a "boy" to fill Spiderman's shoes, while others claim it is his boyishness that charms us into belief. What do you think?

That Sam Raimi was the right director for Spider-man's debut on the big screen is obvious once you've seen this film. His penchant for cartoon-like moments in his other films (e.g., the Evil Dead series, the Quick and the Dead, and the comic-inspired Darkman) boded well for success. Likewise, his encycopediac knowledge of the character was not new - he'd been collecting Spiderman comics ever since he was a kid. With such a director at the helm, and with Spider-man creator Stan Lee looking over his shoulder, it's no wonder that Spider-man the Film looks and feels exactly like we'd imagine based on reading Spider-man the Comic. When compared to, say, the Batman films, Spidey fans must have breathed a sigh of relief that the filmakers got the character mostly right.
Most of our favourite Spidey characters are here - Peter Parker (played to "wallflower" perfection by Toby Maguire), his colleagues Harry and Flash, the fiery readhead Mary Jane Watson, and of course Aunt May and Uncle Ben. The film covers Spiderman's origin (slightly updating the spider bite from a radioactive spider to a genetically enhanced one). The absolute highlight of the film is his attempt to make money wrestling, where he takes on a seriously buffed-up Randy "Macho Man" Savage (called "Bonesaw" in the film). Raimi regular Bruce Campbell appears as the ring announcer, apparently using the Elvis hair and wardrobe acquired from his recent "Bubba Ho-tep" film.
We then advance to the main story - the battle with arch-enemy Green Goblin, here played by Willem Dafoe, who does an admirable job personifying the villain even though half the time we can't see his face.
