1 of the best Superhero films ever made
So what we have here is essentially 2 great movies in a three movie boxset. Spider-man 2 is a fantastic movie, one of the best in the superhero genre and stands head and shoulders above the other two. Spider-man and Spider-man 3 are both good superhero movies with occassional moments of greatness. I’d argue the majourity of Spider-man is excellent with the only real problems being the design of Green Goblin and some overally campy moments. Spider-man 3 is basically a mess. Overstuffed with villians, and some ridicoulous moments of camp (dancing emo Peter, jazz emo Peter, basically any scenes featuring emo Peter). The Sandman story elements are however fantastically well done and make me wish this had been the only villan story line. By taking the best elements of 1 and 3, I am adding it up to be the 2nd of the great movies in this set. As for the blu-ray’s themselves, the picture and sound are definitely an improvement over the dvds, though I’m not sure if they justify the upgrade, also if you are a special features nut, there are fewer in this set than on the original dvds. In fact, Spider-man 3 was at one point released as a 2 disc blu ray edition, here it is only the single disc making this boxset a 3 disc set in total.
