Hands down the best comic book origin film ever. Also, it's better than The Dark Knight.

One of the top 5 most overrated films of the genre.

I really love this movie its in my top 20 but, i think that the green goblin charcter was a bit underdeveloped. I enjoyed the new idea of a villain not really being a villain but two personalities inside of one person but it did leave me a little bit confused. overall probably an 8/10

Not a huge fan. Spider Man 2 is definitely better, but both aren't amazing to me. This one does boast Willem Dafoe's terrific turn as Green Goblin, and all the web-slinging scenes hold up well. I think the final fight is also quote brutal for the time, so I give that credit. With that said, I think the Romance element is really weak and the effects look cheap, even by 2002 (Attack of the Clones looks a lot better tbh), and Tobey was never my favourite Spider Man, although the memes are great. I do enjoy this film, but I don't love it like some. 6/10 seems reasonable

I saw this movie only once as a kid, but I still had fond, nostalgic memories of it more than a decade later. That says a lot about Sam Raimi's talent for making truly iconic cinema, in my opinion.
