Tagline: "With great power comes great responsibility."
This movie gives
a big-screen version of the comic-book hero Spider-Man's origin. I liked
the part of the film that traces how a nerdy high school senior Peter Parker
Maguire) is transformed into the heroic crime-fighter. I also enjoyed
the romantic subplot involving Peter's infatuation with pretty next-door
neighbor Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten
Dunst). The Green Goblin, well-played by Willem
Dafoe, provides an appropriate villain for Spider-Man to overcome. "Spider-Man"
is a fun popcorn movie. I liked the first hour and the ending, although
I was sometimes bored in between. "Spider-Man" is entertaining,
and while I think it has minor flaws, I found it well worth watching.
