Action Sci-Fi Adventure - Comic book readers and non-readers, men and women, young and old, should enjoy this exciting and faithful adaptation of the long- running Marvel comic. The film delivers on all possible levels: action, drama, and romance for a start. The film is generally appropriate for all age levels though the action scenes can get a little rough and one fleeting moment of almost-nudity.

(Close new window when finished with Full Reviews)

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "Spider-Man is a canny franchise escapade; it gets the job done. But it also leaves you hungry for something more, and I don't necessarily mean the next episode.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Above Average "The origin story is well told, and the characters will not disappoint anyone who values the original comic books. It's in the action scenes that things fall apart.  ''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Very Good "...
you know a movie has succeeded when you're looking toward the sequel that Spider-Man's wrap-up strongly portends. This is a rare twisted crowd-pleaser for longtime fans as well as novices — or for those that don't know an arachnid from an insect.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Very Good "...this fast-paced entertainment is a surprisingly successful mix of spectacle and human-scale drama.  The extensive CGI work isn't always convincing, but the movie's real Achilles heel is the Green Goblin. Dafoe's best efforts to dramatize Osborn's inner struggle with his worst impulses can't quite overcome his character's clunky costume and rigid fright mask.''

Moviegoer Opinions:

These are some INCREDIBLY HIGH OPINIONS! Everyone loved "Spider-Man!" With so many very high opinions and so few low opinions it's very easy to HIGHLY RECOMMEND "SPIDER-MAN." IT'S DEFINITELY A "MUST SEE" MOVIE!

Cinema Review Opinion: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Very cool and action packed. A great comic book adventure. I believe it will certainly please Spider-Man fans. I have little doubt that those who wouldn't consider themselves Spider-Man fans will also enjoy this movie.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Orphaned at an early age, Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) lived in Queens, New York with his beloved Aunt May (Rosemary Harris) and Uncle Ben (Cliff Robertson). Peter leads the life of a normal student, working as a photography at the Daily Bugle under the tutelage of publisher J. Jonah James (J.K. Simmons), pining after the beautiful Mary Jan Watson (Kirsten Dunst) and hanging out with buddy Harry Osborn (James Franco).

On a school trip, during which Peter and his classmates are given a science demonstration on spiders, Peter is bitten by a genetically altered spider. Soon after, he discovers that he has unusual powers: he is endowed with the strength and agility of a spider along with a keen, ESP-liked "spider sense."

After discovering these powers, Peter appears in a televised wrestling match and, armed with his new spider strength, wins the match in record time. But the wrestling match promoter refuses to award Peter the $3,000 prize money, alleging that Peter won too quickly. Soon afterwards, Peter has the opportunity to catch a burglar fleeing from the promoter's office, but because he wants revenge, he refuses to stop him. Moments later, the same burglar kills his beloved Uncle Ben.

As Spider-Man, Peter apprehends the burglar but is plagued with guilt for not being a hero sooner. During this time of turmoil, Peter remembers something Uncle Gen once told him: "With great power, there must also come great responsibility." Peter takes this to heart and decides to use his extraordinary powers to fight crime.

Meanwhile, megalomaniacal businessman Norman Osborn (Willem Dafoe), Harry's father, is undergoing some changes of his own. An experimental formula has blown up in his face, increasing his intelligence and strength but also driving him insane. He is now the Green Goblin, Spider-Man's arch-enemy, who will put young Peter Parker's vow to fight crime and help innocent people to the ultimate test.
