The Good: Amazing acrobatic fight scenes, The Green Goblin is a great villain that is very well developed, Excellent acting, Spectacular soundtrack that captures the feel of swinging though New York city perfectly, Perfect casting of the characters, One of the best soundtracks of all time,

The Bad:

Plot: The story describes the transformation of high-school senior Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) into a spiderlike superhero and the beginning of his career as a crime fighter. Peter lives in Forest Hills, a quiet neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, with his Uncle Ben (Cliff Robertson) and Aunt May (Rosemary Harris). He secretly loves Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst), a warm-hearted girl next door, but he is too shy to approach her. His friend Harry Osborn (James Franco) is the son of Dr. Norman Osborn (Willem Dafoe), president of the Oscorp manufacturing corporation, which is working to win a contract to supply weapons to the United States Army.
On a field trip to a genetics laboratory, Peter is bitten by a genetically engineered spider. He passes out in his bedroom at home, and the next day his vision is perfect, he has become more muscular, his wrists emit web strings, and his reflexes are super-quick. At school, he saves Mary Jane from a split-second fall and easily defeats her bullying boyfriend in a fistfight. Realizing that the spider's bite has given him spiderlike powers, he trains himself to scale walls, jump between rooftops, and swing through the city (which he fails on his try).
Peter enters a wrestling tournament, hoping to win $3,000 so he can buy a sports car to impress Mary Jane. On the day of the tournament, Ben tries to give him some fatherly advice, but Peter lashes out at him. At the tournament, the announcer presents Peter as "The Amazing Spider-Man". Peter defeats his opponent, Bonesaw McGraw (Macho Man Randy Savage), but the man in charge only gives Peter $100 for winning the match early. When a thief robs the man, Peter takes his revenge by allowing the robber to escape, but he discovers later that the thief killed Uncle Ben during his getaway. Feeling responsible for Ben's death, and feeling guilty for rejecting his advice, Peter dedicates himself to fighting crime as Spider-Man. He makes money by selling pictures of himself as Spider-Man to Daily Bugle newspaper editor J. Jonah Jameson (J.K. Simmons).
Meanwhile, under pressure from the military, Norman tests Oscorp's dangerous new performance-enhancing chemical on himself. The chemical manages to make him stronger, but he quickly develops a maniacal alter ego. He immediately murders his assistant, then kills several of his competitor's scientists from the air, wearing an artificial exoskeleton and standing on a small flying platform called a "glider". After Oscorp's directors fire him, he flies to an Oscorp-sponsored fair and kills them before Spider-Man drives him away.

Plot: 9.7/10- The plot stays close enough to the comic yet adds even more to make it great.

Action: 9.5/10- The Spider-Man vs. Green Goblin fight scene at the end was amazing and the other scenes of Spider-Man taking out thugs was also great.

Acting: 9.6/10- Superb performances by the whole cast.

Special effects: 8.8/10- The effects looked spectacular for 2002 but they are a little dated but hold up well today.

Soundtrack: 10/10- The soundtrack is one of the best of all time and every time I hear it I feel like I am swing though the city like Spider-Man there are very few soundtracks that captures the feel of a movie like that. Listion to it below.

Comedy: 8.1/10- Spider-Man is not a comedy but the part when he first gets his powers is very humorous.

Overall: 9.5/10- Spider-Man does almost every thing right and is a must see movie.

Closing comments: Spider-Man is not only one of the best comic book movies of all time it is one of the top 50 best movies of all time.

Recommended for: Anyone, Comic Book Movie fans, Action movie fans,

  1. I grew up on this movie! Me and my cousin watched it countless times. He could quote it backwards! The 2nd one is still my favorite though.
