As an introduction to Spider-Man's abilities, enemies and past this movie is quite perfect. These things nimbly unravel within the main plot, as Spider-Man begins to lose himself because of a strange gas that Dr. Octopus exposes him to which makes him forget who he is. Doc Ock's plan is to convince Spidey that they are both villains.
Luckily for Spider-Man one of his greatest fans, a young girl, decides to help him rediscover who he really is. Because of this, the viewer will also learn about the origin of this super hero as he himself reminisces about his past.
I recommend this movie for every parent who feels that their boys or girls are still too young to see the live action movies just yet.
