Spider-Man

 (2002)

Spider-Man Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Orphaned at an early age, Peter Parker lives in Queens, New York with his beloved Aunt May and Uncle Ben. Peter leads the life of a normal student, working as a photographer at the school paper, pining after the beautiful Mary Jane Watson and hanging out with buddy Harry Osborn. On a school trip, during which Peter and his classmates are given a science demonstration on arachnids, Peter is bitten by a genetically-altered spider. Soon after, he discovers that he has unusual powers: he is endowed with the strength and agility of a spider along with a keen, ESP-like "spider-sense." Peter first uses his powers to make money, but in the face of a tragedy that hits close to home, he vows to dedicate his life to fighting crime, taking to heart the words of his beloved Uncle Ben: "With great power comes great responsibility." Meanwhile, megalomaniacal businessman Norman Osborn, Harry's father, is undergoing some changes of his own. An experimental formula has gone awry, increasing his intelligence and strength but also driving him insane. He is now the Green Goblin, Spider-Man's arch-enemy, who will put young Peter Parker's vow to fight crime and help innocent people to the ultimate test.

Spider-Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sony's commitment to releasing the finest Blu-ray products is evident with every spin of a Sony-branded disc. The consistency of product -- from the latest blockbusters to the most cherished classic titles from years gone by -- is arguably tops in the entire industry, and why shouldn't it be; Sony was a lead Blu-ray design and advocacy outfit, its PlayStation 3 console offered disc playback and instant wide format adoption, and the first wave of titles released back in 2006 bore the Sony label on the spine. Since then, and through a few growing pains and spurts -- a bloody format war, a misstep or two, the transition from Dolby TrueHD to DTS-HD Master Audio -- the studio has emerged as the most trustworthy in the industry when it comes to its Blu-ray product. When it says Sony, chances are extremely high that the movie is going to look (and sound) about as good as the format allows. Now, Sony is recalling the days of its "Superbit" DVD releases with the emergence of "Mastered in 4K" (*) Blu-ray discs. The new transfers are sourced from 4K masters but here's where the giant asterisk comes in: they're then downscaled to standard Blu-ray 1080p resolution. That means buyers can enjoy them on their regular old Blu-ray players and their regular old HDTVs -- no fancy new hardware required. The downside is that viewers aren't really seeing the material in 4K; even those who shell out the large sum of cash for a new 4K TV will be treated only to an upscaled presentation, much the same way today's regular old TV/playback 1080p device combos upscale standard definition DVDs.

Watching the "Mastered in 4K" transfer in 1080p does yield some benefits over the standard 1080p Blu-ray releases, even if it's not a true 4K experience. The discs take advantage of a significantly higher bitrate than regular old Blu-ray discs, meaning more muscle to produce the finest picture quality, revealing superior details and showcasing that perfect cinematic, pleasing grain texturing for pictures photographed on film and more accuracy for those photographed in the wholly digital realm. "Mastered in 4K" discs also promise superior color balance and accuracy, reproducing a more faithful-to-the-source palette that will reveal the sort of natural shading and subtle nuance even the best of 1080p Blu-ray cannot match. More, Sony promises enhanced viewing on its own line of 4K TVs thanks to a proprietary upscaling algorithm that's designed to squeeze the most out of the "Mastered in 4K" line of Sony discs, above and beyond what any competitor's display can offer. Makes sense considering some branch of Sony is at work along every step of the process. Unfortunately, one of Sony's shiny new 4K televisions was not available for review purposes, but suffice it to say that either of the launch displays -- the 55" and 65" XBR-labeled sets -- will undoubtedly offer the best consumer viewing picture to date, whether joined with a Sony "Mastered in 4K" disc or a regular old Blu-ray from any studio.

Spider-Man looks fantastic, better than ever, in fact, for home viewing. The image secures a handsome, filmic texture, retaining a natural grain structure that's subtly evident in every shot and that helps to not only create that cherished cinematic flavor but also reinforce the level of visible detail; there's been no unnecessary noise reduction performed on this release. It's bold and crisp, revealing an incredible level of visual nuance across the board. Spider-Man's costume looks amazing; the 1080p "Mastered in 4K" transfer showcases every line, the web-like ridges, and the meshy eye covers beautifully. Skin textures are amazingly complex and true, while cityscapes both near and far look spectacular. It's all very well defined from top to bottom. Colors are equally striking. Through there's a hint of warmth here and there -- generally and across human faces specifically -- the palette usually proves quite bold and brilliant. Spider-Man red, Goblin green, and all varieties in between -- whether on clothes, flashy neon signage, or elsewhere -- are striking. Black levels are faultless, showing a deepness and richness at every opportunity. There were a few strange instances of an explosion of white speckles and pixelation in several shots. Rewinding could not reproduce the effect, and it's not something that's plagued the review gear before. Considering it was an unrepeatable occurrence (even if it happened at several points in the film), it's likely some flaw not part of the disc but one worth mentioning, anyway.


Spider-Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Spider-Man's Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack follows the formula of the most successful tracks, offering a wide, welcoming cinematic flair to its music and effects but finding a delicacy in the quieter emotional scenes. The score is rousing and well integrated; it enjoys faultless spacing and excellent clarity, playing big across the front but also featuring a strongly defined and balanced rear support structure. The low end, too, proves its potency when required, delivering punishing but even and exacting lows or simply offering a foundational support and heft to music. The track is packed with exceptionally detailed sound effects, whether the Goblin's glider whirring through the air or any number of other action-heavy elements, such as gunfire and raging fires. Sony's track also carries ambient effects very well. City din, cheering crowds at a wrestling match, or the bustling Bugle offices spring to life with a natural presence at every opportunity. Rounded into form by even and clear dialogue, this is a track that's not just an entertaining listen but a fantastic compliment to a great film.
