Product Description

Product Description

Average teenager Peter Parker is transformed into an extraordinary super hero after he is accidentally bitten by a radioactive spider. When his beloved uncle is savagely murdered during a robbery, young Peter vows to use his powers to avenge his death. Deeming himself "Spider-Man ," he sets about ridding the streets of crime, bringing him into conflict with malevolent super-villain "Green Goblin."

Amazon.ca

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

Format: DVD
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.

This disc does NOT include the teaser trailer to the original Spider-man movie, as was stated elsewhere. It is merely the teaser trailer for Spider-man 2.
This is the most shameless "make you buy a dvd you already have again" scheme I have seen yet. Sony doesn't even PRETEND that they're not ripping you off; they flagrantly flaunt that fact. All of the additional features are on a whole extra disc, which has its own regular bulky dvd case, included in a slipcase with the EXACT SAME dvd you already have, in the EXACT SAME packaging! It's a real middle finger to the fans. If they had included this bonus disc packaged with the new Superbit version, then at least you'd be getting something new, not re-buying what you already have. But no. They don't even try to disguise the fact that they're re-selling you the same disc you bought a year and a half ago.
Furthermore, the bonus features on the third disc are meagre and not worth it. The "sneak preview" of Spider-man 2 doesn't include any film footage you haven't already seen in the trailers.
My one-star rating reflects this shameless new DVD re-packaging, not the movie itself, which is excellent and would receive five stars on its own.
AVOID THIS DVD AT ALL COSTS IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THE ORIGINAL RELEASE!

While Spider-Man recieves high marks for being an almost perfect "comic book" movie, its third DVD incarnation is, nothing more than Columbia trying to milk more cash from a lucrative cow. The new bonus material for the three disc set amounts to nothing more than padded pre release material for Spider Man 2.
Average High School student, Peter Parker, (Tobey Maguire) gets bitten by a genetically altered spider, while on a field trip. Soon after, he develops powers and abilities like a spider.... The film is very faithful to its comic book story, with only minor differences, that don't matter much. Maguire is very good as Peter/Spiermam. He is able to balance the geeky dorkdom of Parker, early in the film, and the daring-do of our hero, quite effectively. The rest of the cast is good too (with one notable exception, more on that in a moment) Kirsten Dunst as love interest, Mary Jane Watson, gives her the proper amount of spunky-cuteness, (as she is in the comic book) without overkill. James Franko as Harry Osborne, Peter's pal, puts his best foot forward. Now for that notable casting exception, I thought the worst performance in the film was given by actor Willem DaFoe. As wealthy businessman and Spidey's arch enemy, Norman Osborne/Green Goblin, he was just doing his best to win an award for the person who could sound most like DeNiro from Taxi Driver. Now, I know the character is supposed to have a split personality, but I just didn't buy him in the role. It didn't help matters that the goblin costume looked like something out of the TRANSFOMERS. It looked and sounded better as described in the "making of the movie" book, than it did on film . A few bits of casting trivia. There is a fun cameo by actor Bruce Campbell in the film.

As many of you know, this dvd was released back in November 2002. It sold a whole lotta copies and we were happy with it. Personally, I bought the boxed collection with the Kevin Smith/Stan Lee dvd and all the other Spidey-Goodness. Now this "Deluxe" dvd release is on the horizon. And it's release is just in time for Spider-Man 2's AMC/Cinemark/any movie theatre chain domination.
Now about the dvd. IT HAS THE THEATRICAL TEASER!!!!! Back in July 2001, an awesome teaser to rival ID4 was shown in theaters and on-line. It was soon pulled from all media forms due to world events. It was basically done out of respect. Now the complete trailer is included on a THIRD DISC. This is the same dvd you bought in 2002. It is packed now with a pretty cool outer-sleeve to hold the WIDESCREEN version of the movie and the supplemental disc. This third disc is just some extra things to get your Spider-Man 2 fix 4 weeks early. You even get a movie ticket to see the flick on June 30th. That and you get all the video game demos and press kit vids to keep you happy.
So if you want that TEASER (Like me. I Thought it was the best trailer for a movie in the past 5 years), then get it. Plus, you get a movie pass. It balances out in the end IMHO. I just hope we don't get the "Extra Crispy" V.I.P. Edition anytime soon that includes a blindfold, tassells, and the alternate ending with Hayden Christensen next to Peter at the cemetary!
