Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A perfectly serviceable early-summer popcorn picture that will satisfy its core teen constituency and not displease general viewers looking for some disposable entertainment.
Fresh: Even at its most generic, Raimi's amiable movie doesn't forget its human scale.
Fresh: With earnest, unpretentious delivery, Maguire is an eminently likable hero audiences will root for from his earliest moments as the class wimp.
Fresh: The perils and advantages of being bitten by a genetically modified spider are made abundantly clear in Sam Raimi's enjoyable, if broken-backed, exercise in high-cost pulp.
Seriously, I don't think they should've made a sequel to this movie. This is the best of the 3 and will forever stay the best of the 3
I Agree with the 1st review
This is the best Spidey flick. Buy it. NOW!!!
In A Web Of Excellence
This movie was a great to see in theaters when it came out in 2002. The musical score was only part of the succes for this movie thanks to Danny Elfman. The special effects were mind blowing for me to see Spiderman swing from high buildings to catch the bad guys. Also my dad grew up reading this comic book hero and now I am reading the comics of the webslinger. This movie is worth every penny and it is worth owning. "With great power comes great movies"
