Spiderman A Good Comic Book Movie With Some Flaws
Spider-man is a good comic book movie with some flaws. I prefer the
sequel over this one but the original is still a solid comic book film
brought to life by director Sam Raimi and the talented cast. Raimi does
a decent enough job telling the origin story of nerdy high schooler
Peter Parker into the web slinging superhero Spider-man. The cast
includes Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker/Spider-man, William Dafoe as
Norman Osburne/The Green Goblin, Kristen Dunst as Mary Jane Watson, and
James Franco as Harry Osbourne. Maguire is admirable in his role as
both Peter Parker and Spider-man giving us character who is nerdy but
is willing to put others before himself. He's a teenager with problems
and I think thats why people can identify with him. He's also a man in
love with his beautiful neighbor Mary Jane Watson. Dunst as Mary Jane
is okay as Peters love but isn't really given much to do besides
eventually being the damsel in distress later on in the film. William
Dafoe is impressive as Norman Osbourne and his evil alter ego The Green
Goblin. I like the fact they made the Goblin a split personality a side
effect of the performance enhancers his character takes in the movie.
His costume did look a little corny and it resembled something you'd
see in an episode of Power Rangers or something but Dafoe makes for an
imposing villain none the less. James Franco is good as Norman's son
Harry but like Dunst he isn't given much to do either except to show up
here and there throughout the movie. Rosemary Harris as Aunt May and
Cliff Robertson in a small role as Uncle Ben are effective supporting
characters. They both have good chemistry with Maguire making them
believable as his characters aunt and uncle. Bruce Campbell has a brief
appearance as a wresting announcer and he makes the best of his small
part in the film. The special effects are state of the art and the
action/fight sequences are well executed but at times you can
definitely tell is CG which is okay but not as good as when you see two
worthy adversaries without costumes duking it out instead of something
created in a computer. The pacing in between the action was a little
slow and the dialogue wasn't the best at times. Overall though
Spider-man is still an entertaining comic book with just the right
amount of action, some suspense, humor, a little romance, and solid
performances by the cast that make for an enjoyable movie to watch..

Love it! :D
Seeing this movie 8 years after it was made, I kind of expected rough
CGI. I thought it was surprisingly good! (Even the Green Goblin wasn't
It's really easy to screw up a super-hero movie, as displayed by
countless Super Man movies. This is not a bad super-hero movie. Aside
from Iron Man, this is probably my favorite!
Applause to Tobey Maguire for his performance in this. Looking at all
the other choices to play Peter Parker/Spider-Man, including one of my
favorites, Leo DiCaprio, I really can't think of a more suitable
Spider-Man. There're a lot of physical scenes in this movie, (some are
CGI, but as I mentioned the CGI is incredibly well done and there are
parts where you are wondering if it's a Maguire or not) and he couldn't
have done a better job. Not to mention he's just adorable in this and
you can't take your eyes off him!
I've never read a comic book in my life and I liked this. However, I'm
a super-hero movie fan, so I asked around and most everyone had high
remarks. High action and high entertainment- highly recommended to
anyone looking for an action movie! (Be warned- once you see this one
you'll want to see the second and third ones, too!).
