Average teenager Peter Parker is transformed into an extraordinary super hero after he is accidentally bitten by a radioactive spider. When his beloved uncle is savagely murdered during a robbery, young Peter vows to use his powers to avenge his death. Deeming himself "Spider-Man," he sets about ridding the streets of crime, bringing him into conflict with malevolent super-villain "Green Goblin."

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. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Even at its most generic, Raimi's amiable movie doesn't forget its human scale. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Jul 7, 2015

Fresh: With earnest, unpretentious delivery, Maguire is an eminently likable hero audiences will root for from his earliest moments as the class wimp. – David Germain, Associated Press, Aug 3, 2013

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. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Aug 3, 2013

No Sequel

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"
