10 / 10
Superb movie. Tobey Maguire is brilliant, there is not a better Peter Parker in this world. Kirsten Dunst is great. Sam Raimi`s directing is excellent. What more can I say?

The Pic Quality could have been alot better but is pretty cool considering the amount of CG used. Audio is very good. I dont really have 5.1 to test the speakers but sounds excellent thru the tv.

Extras are great and if you count the Limited stuff, you have to say, its magnificent.
