Spider-man is a phenomenal American film starring a high school student in New York who goes from being a victim of bullying and not enjoying his life to developing super powers, fighting off crime, and becoming the citiy's protector. I personally love this movie because it features a high school student and since I am close to his age, I can relate to some parts of the movie. The movie's plot, action and fantasy caught my eye and kept me amused throughout the entire 121 minutes. I also liked it because even though a lot of people doubted him, he ended up proving them wrong and accomplishing his dreams. I recommend anyone from the age of 13 and older to watch this movie. It does not contain much explicit words and you will most likely enjoy it if you are into action/fantasy. If I had to rate this movie I would give it a 9/10.

A very good, if somewhat corny movie, and Willem Defoe is fantastic, but the Goblin Armor is hard to take seriously.

This is a 2002 American superhero action-drama directed by Sam Raimi, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name.
A high school kid in New York City turns into a crimefighting superhero after developing spider-like super powers with an uncanny spider bite.
With fascinating visual effects, it is an enjoyable entertaining piece.

Nice story, has some funny lines. It has some bad language ,and maybe may have brief see through nudity. Other than that, it was enjoyable. Note: The hand symbol that Spider-man has is a satanic symbol. They Probably don't know that, so not going to put the rating down because of that.

Peter Parker (voice-over); Who am I? You sure you want to know? My story is not for the faint of heart. If somebody told you it was a happy little tale, that I was just your average guy, without a care in the world, somebody lied.

Norman Osborn: [at Peter's graduation] I know this has been a difficult time for you, but I want you to try to enjoy this day. Commencement: the end of one thing, the start of something new.

Peter Parker: I said... uh... Spider-Man, I said uh... The great thing about MJ is... when you look in her eyes and she's looking back in yours... everything... feels... not quite normal. Because you feel stronger and weaker at the same time. You feel excited and at the same time, terrified. The truth is... you don't know what you feel except you know what kind of man you want to be. It's as if you've reached the unreachable and you weren't ready for it."

Peter Parker: I was in the neighborhood, needed to see a friendly face. I took three buses and a cab to *get* in the neighborhood, but... So how'd it go?

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 10, 2012

High school senior Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) lives in Forest Hills, a quiet neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, with his Uncle Ben (Cliff Robertson) and Aunt May (Rosemary Harris). He secretly loves Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst), a warm-hearted girl next door, but he is too shy to approach her. His friend Harry Osborn (James Franco) is the son of Dr. Norman Osborn (Willem Dafoe), president of the Oscorp manufacturing corporation, which is working to win a contract to supply weapons to the United States Army. On a field trip to a genetics laboratory, Peter is bitten by a genetically engineered spider. He passes out in his bedroom at home, and the next day his vision is perfect, he has become more muscular with superhuman strength, his wrists emit web strings, and his reflexes are super-quick. At school, he saves Mary Jane from a split-second fall and easily defeats her bullying boyfriend in a fistfight. Realizing that the spider's bite has given him spiderlike powers, he trains himself to scale walls, jump between rooftops, and swing through the city.
