Note: I am not posting as much of the plot summery as usual since it would spoil to much of the plot.
High school senior Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) 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 with superhuman strength, 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. Watch the movie to see what happenes next.
Plot: 9.6/10- This is how tell an origin story right. The pacing is great and has plenty of time for character development. The only cliché is the "damsel in distress" cliché, although it really did not bother me.
Action: 9.5/10- The action scenes in Spider-Man are amazing. Although the effects are slightly dated, the choreography is stunning. It captures Spider-Man's acrobatic ability very well and the Green Goblin's fighting is great also.
Acting: 9.6/10- Every member of the cast were casted perfectly for their roles. There is not a single weak link in the main cast.
Special effects: 8.8/10- The effects looked spectacular for 2002 and hold up surprisingly 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. Listen 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.
Would I Watch This Again: I have seen over 15 times and I could watch 15 more times and never get tired of it.
Overall: 9.5/10- Spider-Man is the template that
