Review: 'Spider-Man'

May 3

In 1978, Hollywood asked audiences if they could believe a man could fly. And thanks to the charismatic Christopher Reeve in Superman, the answer was yes. This year Hollywood asks if you can believe in a web-slinging, wall-crawling super hero. And thanks to Marvel Comics aficionado Sam Raimi, the answer is again yes. Raimis Spider-Man (opening May 3 throughout San Diego, but make an effort to see it at Pacific Grossmont Stadium 10s BIG screen) captures all the appeal of Stan Lees original comic and may be the mega-hit this talented director so rightly deserves.
