A true super hero movie
I grew up on Spider-man and have probably been one of his biggest fans
as a kid growing up and I was thrilled by the movie when it was
reaslied on the big screen. I was just going through my DVD collection
when I said to my-self just check it out. However I was actually
surprised to see some comments which actually blasted this movie badly.
Althouh I am a huge Spidey fan I understand that Hollywood is a big
business which actually has money on its agenda first rather than
pleasing the fans , and over time I have learnt to live with that and
although it can't be denied although one or two things might of been
changed in this movie , Sam Rami has sit down and down his research on
this. The film is a thrilling ride from start to finish , moves at a
great pace and keeps us entertained all the way through with its action
sequences and emotional scenes. Tobey Maguire was cast brilliantly as
the web slinger and although from time to time he maybe a little tooo
geeky , it was all well. Willem Defoe was cast brilliantly as the Green
Goblin and although The Goblin was never truly one of my favourites he
seemed to make the regather interesting. James Franco and Kirsten Dunst
who otherwise I can't stand were class. My only complaint about this
was that they had changed The Goblins costume which I felt done the
regather no justice but Willam Defoe managed to save that with his body
language and use of the SFX. On the whole I throughly enjoyed checking
Spiderman out as it reminded me of my childhood and as cheesy as it
sounds to me it is still magical.

Spider-Man learns to crawl, but only later does he learn to fly!
Sam Raimi's Spider-Man is full of energy, zipping and zooming across
the screen with gleefully wild delight. The former Evil Dead creator's
visual style for quick zooms and he's zany sense of humor is present
throughout the film, but Raimi has also brought along his heart and
passion for the comic book to his film. The film was written by David
Keopp, fresh after writing David Fincher's Panic Room, and his script
gets a few things right and a few things not so right, but in the end
this is a pretty amusing and exciting sci-fi/adventure that's sure to
keep you entertained.
The cast of Spider-Man does a quite a good job, but I'll be honest when
I first heard that Toby Maguire was going to be playing the role of
Spider-Man I thought to myself, "Who? That nerdy kid from
Pleasantville?", so obviously I had my doubts as to if he was up to the
task of pulling off the part of Peter Parker and Spider-Man. Why
Maguire is perfectly suited for the role of Spider-Man is because he
can easily pull of the nerdy/boy-next-door look that is required for
Peter Parker. Another good job in casting was getting Willem Dafoe as
Norman Osborn aka "The Green Goblin". Dafoe goes all Nicholson on us,
and doesn't hold anything back; he's in full-on snarl and growl mode,
and his voice and mannerisms fit well with the character he's playing.
I particularly enjoyed the scene where he talks to himself in the
mirror, showing his multiple personalities, a scene that's gone
somewhat similar in Peter Jackson's The Two Towers.
The special effects on the other hand aren't quite as flawless as the
casting, but for the majority of the film they do work to one degree or
another. In the scene where Parker discovers his powers and jumps along
the roof tops it's pretty obvious that's a computer effect, but
watching Spider-Man battle the Green Goblin on the Queensboro Bridge in
the film's finale is quite something. The shots that seemed to take my
breath away the most were the dramatic shots of Spider-Man swinging his
way all around Manhattan and the cinematography by Don Burgess really
helps add to the vibrant look of the film, which is very cool.
However, there are a few little things and one big thing I didn't like
about Spider-Man. First off, the little things. Personally I think Mary
Jane looked a little "skanky" in the beginning of the movie. Was I the
only one that thought that? Secondly, I wasn't surprised that Peter
Parker lived with his Aunt and Uncle, but it certainly would have been
nice to know exactly why that was. Then there's the overindulgent Macy
Gray cameo that was completely pointless. And lastly, and most
importantly I really didn't like how they decided to do the Green
Goblin. If you've read the comic book series Ultimate Spider-Man by
Brian Michael Bendis the Green Goblin was created by Norman Osborn
injecting himself with a green plasma in a syringe, and then
psychically and literally turning into a green monster, which looked
much more menacing than the space suite and helmet they ended up using
the film. I thought that was a really, really bad choice, because of
two reasons. One, it seemed a little strange that the Military would
actual end up wearing a goofy looking helmet like that, and two, it
just wasn't dark enough for me. But put aside those few complaints I
think the film is still pretty good, but it could have been a little
better. As for right now I'm giving this film a score of a seven, it's
a pretty good film, with a good cast and some fun action sequences
that's also able to get us involved with the characters and enjoy them
on a small emotional level, so for those reasons it is a success, but
it certainly could have used a little tweaking here and there..
