All you can expect1/6/2008
Going back to the beginning of the three volume series, I could see a better, little less geeky, portrayal of Spiderman to match that of the comic's. I also could have enjoyed this if they had not ripped off so may Superman aspects. These days you have to accept that every movie is going to have the embedded love story. Although, this seems more like a love story with and embedded super hero story. Part two of the series brings things back together somewhat although plays out a little slow. Part three looks to be the best yet with a plethora of villains, but then it seems as if each simply has a cameo. My 4 year old loves it... I am buying for him. I wish it would have been put together better. I do like the cinematography.
