Editorial Reviews

Additional Features

Released alongside a Superbit edition to coincide with the theatrical release of Spider-Man 2, the three-disc deluxe edition of Spider-Man combines the original two-disc widescreen edition in a box with a new disc of special features in its own keepcase. The main selling point of the third disc is presumably the "sneak peek" at Spider-Man 2, but it's just a five-minute compilation of trailer footage and interviews. The sequel's ubiquitous trailer is also included. There are 30 minutes of previously unseen featurettes, which are all decent, but somewhat overkill when tacked onto the excellent original set's two commentary tracks, pop-up factoids and featurettes, and second disc of features. The most entertaining aspect of the new third disc might be the demo of the upcoming Activision video game, which introduces the game's controls and look and feel.

If you never picked up the original two-disc release of Spider-Man, you might enjoy the three-disc deluxe edition, which has all the same features plus a few new ones. If you do have the original, however, there's no compelling reason to upgrade. On the other hand, Spidey-philes might seriously consider the Superbit version, which offers a sharper, more brilliant picture, a DTS soundtrack, and a brand-new commentary track by Tobey Maguire and J.K. Simmons (J. Jonah Jameson). --David Horiuchi

Product Description

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."

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Spider-Man! Amazing Movie! May 5, 2002
What can I possibly say but WOW! This movie is truly a dream come true for a long time Spider-man fan like me. Not only was the movie made but the movie was made RIGHT!
Many directors and artists in Hollywood claim to be fans of comic book heroes, but when it comes time for them to actually put it together they fail miserably. But not here. Sam Rami is a TRUE Spider-man fan-- and he did what a true fan would do. He stayed true to the source and to the material. He captured the essence of Spider-man and his history. He didn't decide to pretentiously add his own mark like Tim Burton did with the laughable Batman movie. Rami stayed true to the comic. This is the Spider-man I read about month for the last 13 years.
I really did not think that anyone could top the X-Men, but Rami has and I don't just mean because of the special effets. I also mean in terms of the plot and character development. This is not a long drawn out movie filled with pointless violence. It is a well plotted story that moves effortlessly from point to point. Who would have thought that so much could be fit into two hours? And the end, I won't give it away , but who on earth would have thought that it would have ended that way. Instead of going for the same old boring cliche Hollywood ending--Rami tacks on an original one which hints towards the future.
Tobey Maguire was not my first choice to play Peter Parker. But boy does he deliver! I understand that he worked hard to get this part and boy does it show! He plays Peter just the way he was portrayed in the book! Kristen Dunst also was excellent,I did not think that she could pull off the part of Mary Jane. She's a lovely girl but not the super-model that MJ is in the comic book. But I was pleasantly surprised with what was done with the character.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie and solid blu-ray release June 2, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
At this point, I will assume that everyone is familiar with the film itself - it is a great piece of entertainment. The film itself, the image quality, and the audio specs all remain the same as the previous blu-ray release: Spider-Man [Blu-ray].

Here are the main differences between the previous Spider-Man blu-ray and this newer version:
- Bonus Material, including an audio commentary and several featurette (all of which come from the Special Edition DVD but were not on the previous blu-ray) have been included here.
- There is new cover art for the blu-ray
- Included is an Ultraviolet streaming copy of the film that works with various portable devices so that you can watch the film on-the-go.

Obviously, the studio is releasing this new blu-ray to capitalize on/promote "The Amazing Spider-Man" film which arrives in theaters this summer. But the least they could have done for this "new" blu-ray is give us some new material, whether it be an extended cut of the film or some new features.

So while I love this movie, I really see no reason to buy it again because it doesn't add much to the experience that I am getting now with the previous Spider-Man discs that I own. But if you are new to blu-ray or did not own the previous version, then I highly recommend you pick this up.

And below are links to "Spider-Man 2" and "Spider-Man 3":

5.0 out of 5 stars PERFECT casting! December 6, 2002
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When Spider-Man was released in the theaters, I heard many people say that they didn't know why Tobey Magurie was cast as the Web Spinner. What they don't realize is that Stan Lee originally conceived of Spider-Man as an average sort of person with everyone could relate. As Rosemary Harris as Aunt May says in the film, "You're not Superman." Maguire is perfectly cast as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. He is of average height, underplays instead of overacts and is just as convincing at playing a high school nerd as he is at playing a super hero.
Kirsten Dunst, likewise, is terrific as Mary Jane Watson. With her looks (and body), it would be easy for her to simply physically match the character. However she also manages to embody the character's vulnerability that she hides beneath her confident and charismatic exterior. Having seen very few of her adult roles, I never would have pegged Dunst for the role. However, having seen her in the role, I can't see anyone else playing it.
There was much talk about the special effects in Spider-Man as there always seems to be with blockbusters like this. However, to me, the casting is the true strength of the film. Maguire, Dunst, Harris as Aunt May, Cliff Robertson as Uncle Ben and Willem Dafoe as Norman Osborne are all perfectly cast and show that a film can have all the latest technical wizardry, but still must depend on its actors to flesh out the characters and make the audience believe and care about what happens to them.

For starters "Spider-Man" is probably the most faithful translation of a comic book superhero to the big screen. Throughout the movie I kept thinking, yes, this is in "Amazing Fantasy" #15, that is from the cover of "Spider-Man" #39, and that is what "really" happened to the Green Goblin. Go back and look at "Batman," "Superman" or any other comic book film and you will find that beyond the basic plot of their origin, you will not find anything reminding you of specific issues or great moments from the actual comic books. On this score I believe the credit goes to director Sam Raimi, but there is always the possibility David Koepp's screenplay might have had something to do with it (note: Stan Lee and Steve Ditko get credit for creating Spider-Man but John Romita, Sr. deserves some credit too given that much of his artwork is invoked by the film as well).
Of course there are differences, because film is a different medium from comic books (feel free to quote me on that one). Some of the changes result from a desire to provide an appropriate rationale for Spidey's powers. This means we get a scientist providing expositionary details during the visit to the lab where the spider (now genetically enhanced rather than radioactive) puts the bite on Peter Parker. While this works for the ability to cling to walls and the good old spider-sense, I am less sure about the natural web spinning ability. I mean, on the one hand, the invention of his special web fluid was how we knew Peter was a brilliant young scientist, while on the other, how does the web go through the costume? No, this is not "No Prize" worthy, but it does bug me.
