Why watch this film?
Along with 'Blade' and 'X-Men', the first 'Spider-Man' movie was responsible for starting the superhero craze in theaters. The director responsible for this landmark was Sam Raimi, who brings his aesthetics (recognized in films such as 'Darkman: Face of Vengeance' and 'Crazy Night') to the feature film. The influence of the hero's comic books is also perceptible in various moments, with scenes that practically reproduce passages from comics such as 'Spectacular Spider-Man' #2 and 'Amazing Spider-Man' #122 - although there are some changes and adaptations. The protagonist is played by Tobey Maguire, but the highlight is the villain Norman Osborn, played by Willem Dafoe, besides J. Jonah Jameson by J.K. Simmons. The result is a fun origin film that still entertains the whole family today.
