5.0 out of 5 stars Must See Doc about Stan Lee May 11, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Not being a huge comic book fan, I came to this movie through all of the hype about The Avengers. Stan Lee is sooo cool. I feel like I will enjoy the movies more now that I have insight into who their creator is. Charming, smart, witty and lover of a great story. Stan Lee became more that just the guy in the cameos in the films. With Great Power gives you the insider scoop on how the characters were created. I highly highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stan Lee is genuine regular guy and my hero May 11, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I love how Stan Lee is an everyday guy getting to do extraordinary things in his daily life. He is just as amazed and happy about the movies that I enjoy seeing such as the Avengers movie that's in theaters now (May 2012). I want to live a life where I am doing what I love everyday and only want to do more of what I love and wishing I had more time to do what I love as he does.

What I take away from this documentary of Stan Lee.
1. Have a reason to do something and be genuine about what you do, don't lie to people cuz they will see right through you, speak to who they, your audience are.
2.Keep what you do contemporary so people understand where you're coming from and relate.
3.Put yourself out there, you'll get more back in return.
4. Love where you live and write what you know, makes being genuine easy.
5.Keep at it, success is just around the next failure.
6.Everybody needs help, even Stan Lee had partners drawing and writing the comics along side him.
7. Retire is a dirty work, means you've been working and not doing something you love. Like Stan Lee, my grandfather wouldn't want to be punished by being made to retire8. Only problem is time. Stay healthy and fit to live a long good life.
9. Have someone to share your life with and make them feel special as often as possible in every way you know how to, even when things aren't great.
10. "'Nuff Said"

More for hardcore Stan Lee fans. Not much about where he grew up - his upbringing. Even with the focus being on Marvel Comics - I think it could have been more chronological. I'm sure people put a lot of work into making this. I mean it was interesting to see his daughter and learn about them not having more children - still this documentary (not Stan - I mean - Stan's the man!) - seemed superficial - I get a strong sense - it was done by a much younger generation.
I don't have more to say - other than what my rating says - 'it was okay'.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... comes great responsibility! December 15, 2012
Format:DVD
WITH GREAT POWER (a/k/a WITH GREAT POWER: THE STAN LEE STORY, 2010, 80 minutes, for Epix Channel) was one enjoyable, fun documentary. It is the story of Stan Lee, born Stanley Lieber, the Brain Behind Marvel Comics. In my estimation, he along with his three trusted artists IS Marvel Comics.

Told entirely by Stan himself, in mostly modern interviews and some footage from older appearances, this really covers all bases I wanted to know about him. I have read two forgettable biographies, and saw one other documentary about him - and they were all lousy. Maybe that's just me but this documentary is the one to see, the only one.

With great power, as Stan learned early, comes great responsibility. Even in documentaries, perhaps most especially in documentaries. There are important appearances/commentaries here from luminaries such as Nicholas Cage (who calls Stan "a father figure") and Patrick Stewart (who, like me, thinks Stan is greater than Shakespeare).

I have this rotten feeling I was cheated by the version I watched, because there are lots of credited no-shows, like one of my favorite actors, Thomas Hayden Church and one of my favorite directors, Roger Corman. Can't imagine where these boys got off to - and Nicholas Cage isn't much of an addition to the facts presented here: he gets about a minute of face time and part of that is a filmed spontaneous encounter he has with Stan someplace.

More than compensationary are the moments such as Stan sneaking up on Robert Downey who is attending to some adoring fans - he turns, sees Stan and says, "I'm too famous for YOU!"

To which Stan loudly yet sweetly says, "You're damn right you are!!!" as he gives Downey a big hug that is fiercely returned. But that's not why I love this documentary.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but left me wanting more.. October 26, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Like Stan "The Man" Lee himself, this movie zips along at an almost entirely upbeat, infectiously cheery pace. The film focuses much of its energy on describing Stan's time and influence in the comic-book industry (which is tremendous), and interposes archival footage of Stan as well as interviews from friends, former employees, and his wife throughout.

Less savory topics like his falling out with Jack Kirby (and other former Marvel staff), and some of his failed business ventures post-Marvel, are broadly discussed, but are quickly dispatched before moving onto another approving look at Stan's life.

Squeezed between all the ticker-tape and revelry, the movie does capture a conversation in which Stan and his wife discuss the death of one of their children that took place several decades ago. It's a quiet, understated scene and is memorable for being a tough, but genuinely sincere moment in an otherwise fluffy bio-doc.

Good for what it is, this is a fine flick for any fan of Stan Lee or someone with interest in learning general facts about one slice of comic-book history.
