Louise, South Africa. 24 December 2002

This movie was entertaining on the big screen but some of the action is lost on the small screen.

The sound on the DVD is amazing and if you have surround sound then the overall effect of the film is great. There are two discs; the second disc is comprised of just special features, including outtakes, which are always hysterical. It has enough special features to keep you entertained for hours including a special DVD-rom section.
This movie received very high ratings in the box office and if you like the thrills and spills of adventure movies then this is for you.

The action in the movie keeps you on the edge of your seat and the special effects will keep you constantly enthralled. In some sections the stunts overtake the plot, as you know in most action movies the storyline is slightly overlooked in order to include highly complicated but effective stunts and special effects.

Willem Dafoe plays a highly convincing villain, and Tobey Maguire is equally effective in his role as the hero of this movie. Kirsten Dunst does not contribute too much, she shows up occasionally acting the typical girl next door, which is exactly what she is.

Kirsten plays Mary Jane who lives next door to Peter Parker and attends the same high school as Peter. Peter has had a crush on her since before he can remember and after school still remains completely besotted with her.

The movie portrays the characters well and will leave you with an interest to read the Spiderman comic books. This is a movie directed at comic book readers for obvious reasons, teens for the love story and for people who enjoy thrilling action that keeps you on the edge of your seat. This movie is not one of my favorites but it is something that you can sit through and enjoy even if you are not any of the above types of people that I have listed.

SPIDER-MAN
A film review by Steve Rhodes
Copyright 2002 Steve Rhodes

So is SPIDER-MAN, by director Sam Raimi (A SIMPLE PLAN), worthy of its massive hype? Not really, but it is a solidly entertaining popcorn flick. Starring a well cast Tobey Maguire (PLEASANTVILLE) as Peter Parker, a.k.a. Spider-Man, and Kirsten Dunst (CRAZY/BEAUTIFUL) as his love interest, Mary Jane Watson, the film has major box office hit written all over it. Filled with the great special effects that summer crowds love, the movie is a definite audience pleaser, especially for the extremely lucrative age 12 to 22 demographics. (In case you didn't get the memo, the studios have moved the official opening date for summer up to the first weekend in May. No kids, school officials have not been so informed.)

For those of you, like me, who haven't ever cracked open a Spider-Man comic, the movie shows us that superhero-to-be Peter obtains his special powers of leaping tall buildings with a single web by getting bitten by a genetically modified spider. The best and funniest part of the picture comes soon after the spider noshes on Peter's hand. At first Peter, who lives with his aunt (Rosemary Harris) and uncle (Cliff Robertson), doesn't know how to control his newfound powers. He finds the powers helpful in fighting school bullies, but he isn't quite sure how they work. It is during this playful period that the best laughs occur and the film is the most fun.

Eventually Peter gets the knack of how to throw a web on command and other such spidery skills. A tragedy causes him to dedicate his life to battling the forces of evil in the world. After helping stop normal criminals, he finds his match in a creature known as Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe). This Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde type is known as Norman Osborn on his good days. Norman is a billionaire defense contractor whose son, Harry, rooms with Peter. Harry is played blandly by James Franco in the only decidedly bad casting of the movie.

Although mainly a visual treat, the movie has a few choice lines. "Work was murder," Norman tells Peter's aunt after arriving late for her small dinner party. Since he just torched a building, his words are dead-on.

"You're no superman, you know," Peter's aunt tells him in a bit of dialog guaranteed to tickle any audience. Actually, she's wrong. The movie SPIDER-MAN is pretty much just an updated SUPERMAN for our time with Maguire in the Superman role and Dunst in the Lois Lane part. This isn't a bad thing. SUPERMAN was quite entertaining and so is SPIDER-MAN, which is good since Maguire and Dunst already have signed deals for two sequels.

SPIDER-MAN runs a little long at 1:51. It is rated PG-13 for "stylized violence and action" and would be acceptable for kids around 10 and up.
