The first comic book movie I ever saw and the start of a generation of Marvel movies, SM’s impressive character-based storytelling, lovable (albeit old-looking) Maguire-lead, heart, romance, & good action against Dafoe’s chilling-yet-inaccurate Green Goblin compel. 7.1/10.
Plot Synopsis: Spider-Man centers on student Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire), who is bitten by a genetically-altered spider and gains superhuman strength with the spider-like ability to cling to any surface & shoot webs. He vows to use his abilities to fight crime, coming to appreciate the words of his loved Uncle Ben: ‘With great power comes great responsibility.’
Official CLC Score: 7.1/10
