Two decades ago this was one of the first in a flux of Super Hero films. It is still as good as many and better than a lot. At least it isn't overwhelmed with CGI and the plot has room to breath. The FX are still good, although now perhaps slightly dated.

The performances are all good without being great and the film is one that remains good family viewing without being a classic or groundbreaking like the Batman trilogy became.

This is the worst of the marvel like films
Verified purchase
This is the second time I have watched this film. The first time I was put off with the romance between Toby Maguire and Kirsten Dunst. It was made worst by Kirsten Dunst's dead eyes. I couldn't believe that she felt anything for spiderman. The second time I watched it I noticed how mono-tone toby Maguire's performance was. This is a truly terrible film and I hope people will read this review and decide not to waste a couple of hours of their life watching it.

Not 4K
Verified purchase
I loved the Sam Rami Spiderman films, but they came out before Bluray so I never bought it in 1080P.
So when I saw Amazon had a 4K Bluray for under £9 I jumped at the chance to see the film in HDR.
But alas the disk is being a bit economical with the truth. This is a standard 1080p version of the film, not 4K. When I play 4K content my TV happily displays 2160p (4K). But this displays 1080p.
Read the cover again, and you'll see it states mastered from a 4K source. So yeah I assume digital films have been filmed in 4K for years, but it's only now home cinema has caught up. But this Bluray does not contain a 4K copy of the film. Hey come on it states the film is suitable for playing in a PlayStation 3, so I doubt there's anything more than a bog standard Bluray.
It suggests an expanded colour palette, and yes the suit seems brighter like a HDR film. But this isn't 4K as suggested.
Film wise I stand by 4 out of 5 stars, it's still a great move. But as a 4K disk it scores 1 out of 5. If you already have it on Bluray I doubt you'll see anything different. If you don't, pick it up its still a fun ride and the first real film in the now massive current genre of superhero movies.

Good Movie, but the language is a let down.
Verified purchase
I enjoyed the plot a lot and the movie had an overall excellent and wholesome message. I was quite surprised to hear the blasphemous language used however, which I wasn't expecting in a movie from 2002. Quite disappointing as I otherwise enjoyed the movie and the language did absolutely nothing to enhance the plot, thus offending Christian viewers served to be an entirely pointless endeavor.

Sadly due to this, I won't be watching the sequels and cannot recommend it to any fellow theists.

Family favourite.

Family favourite this one. My daughter first watched this at three and was captivated by spiderman. Now 10, he remains her favourite super hero to this day. Although we are fully immersed in the new marvel universe, this original will always be our favourite!

Amzing price, condition and shipping times for a really awesome movie.
Verified purchase
At first I was a bit worried as the price seemed ridiculously cheap at only £2.70, but I'm really happy to say I had no need to worry. It came brand new in the package, in perfect condition and with both discs. It also came much faster than it said it would, arriving in around 5 days. Amazing price, quality and delivery time.

As for the movie itself, it was excellent. A must watch for any spider man fan. I think it still holds up really well today even though it was made in 2002.

I'm super happy it easily deserves 5 stars.

An average start for the web slinger
Verified purchase
Unlike a lot of people, I wasn't really blown away by the first Spider-Man film, mainly due to what I feel was a large miscasting of actors. Tobey Maguire just doesn't click for me as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and he lacks chemistry with Kirsten Dunst who I also felt was miscast as Mary Jane. The only stand out was J.K. Simmons as Parker's boss at the Daily Bugle J. Jonah Jameson, who is just outstanding in the role.

This film also hasn't aged very well compared to other movies released at the time. The special effects are very unrealistic, and the design of the Green Goblin suit was atrocious.

If you have never seen a Spider-Man film before, I would personally recommend The Amazing Spider-Man, which is easily the best acted of the movies. But if I were to recommend one of the Sam Rami movies, I suggest you watch Spider-Man 2, which is a vast improvement on the first film.
