Review: Spiderman

Director: Sam Raimi

Starring: Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Willem Dafoe

Year: 2002

Genre: Action/Adventure

Rated: PG-13

Length: 121 min.

IMDB Summary: When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.

A fun, action-packed and rather lighthearted take on the story of this classic superhero, Spiderman is an enjoyable watch. Maguire's acting as the awkward-but-lovable Peter Parker makes this film worthwhile, as do the special effects, stunts and action sequences. Don't expect an overwhelming plot or central message (other than the usual superhero themes of love, sacrifice and responsibility), but expect to be entertained with this film's exciting action and adventure, as well as Maguire's spot-on character portrayal.

For Parents:
Some intense superhero-villain action sequences
