Spiderman is easily one of the best superhero film, that I have ever seen in my life. It definitely goes along in my top 10 list. I actually never seen this movie till 2006, as I wasn't really into movies at the time, and this came out when I was like a kid. Now after I viewed it, my honest reaction was: WOW, that was freaking insanely awesome.
I had no expectations, and this movie blew my mind. I mean it had almost everything: real human drama, great characters, top notch acting, amazing effects, tons of great action scenes, etc. This movie was just awesome. I didn't know THAT much about spiderman, but I had a general knowledge of him, and the movie showed it very perfectly.
Now to get wit the characters and acting. Tobey Maguire was my favourite part of this film, as he was as pathetic as Peter Parker could be. Although, Kirsten Dunst could have been a bit more better, and maybe look a bit more attractive. I mean COME ON, she's playing Mary Jane Watson, who is supposed to be FREAKIN SEXY, which Kirsten is not. Just my opinion. Anyways, J.K Simmons was PERFECT as J.Jonah Jameson, He looks EXACTLY like the comic book character. To finish it off, William Dafoe. I know some people gave him a negative reaction for being to silly or cartoonish, etc. But I found that he played his part very well, and I didn't know at the time how green goblin really looked in the comics, but at the time I was expecting him to turn into some monster, which he doesn't and instead dons a weird looking costume. Now I can say that I still think he should have went for an "ultimate spiderman" goblin look. The suit does make sense in terms of logic for the movie, but still. That didn't majorly bother me, as he played a psycho maniac villain on drugs quite awesomely.
The things I had a problem with, were the logic and the one or two plot holes. I felt there was a lot of logic missing in how the hell he made such an amazing costume by himself, and that's just a small one. Theres a lot more but I won't really go through them. One thing was the fun but kind of cheesy atmosphere of the film, which I think is what spiderman is like, but still. The plot holes in this one were also minor, UNLIKE its next film Spiderman 2(which I loved but had 2 HUGE plot holes). I had to go along with my sense of disbelief a lot when watching this movie, so i didn't have a major problem with the logic and plot holes. Plus, the movie is just so much full of heart that I couldn't hate it, and I mean i actually got a bit watery during the Uncle Bens death scene. Oh yeah, another couple more pluses, THE MUSIC was awesome, and I LOVED the style of the beginning credits.
overall, I could go on and on about how much i loved this movie, but I won't and say that I totally recommend it if you haven't seen it( which I highly doubt, since they air it on TV like 50 times a year).
