Being a Sci-Fi fan and a Spiderman fan since childhood, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie as well with the exception of a few Hollywood liberties to enhance Spidey.

I enjoyed Mr. Frost’s film review with the exception of his concluding line, "In this world there is no greater love than Spider-Manís." He may have been refering to the world of imagination, Spiderman’s world or our world. I could not tell specifically. However, on a Catholic web site, we have to remember the words of Jesus. Jesus says, "Love one another as I have loved you. There is no greater love than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends."

However, Mr. Frost described the movie quite eloquently. Spiderman’s values should be emulated to the best of our ability but even he had his human frailties. Thank you, Mr. Frost, for a nice review. I am sure you meant your concluding sentence in good taste.
