The greatest super hero ever invented
5 July 2000 | by phil13doggSee all my reviews

I thought this film did an admirable job portraying most of spideys origins, although a lot of key events were left out entirely. This movie is a quick fix for all spideys fans out there until someone gets a clue and makes a guaranteed blockbuster of a movie, lets hope this time it gets done.
