It's double the action, double the thrills, and double the goblins as Spider-Man is unmasked and tangled in a web of treachery in SPIDER-MAN: THE RETURN OF THE GREEN GOBLIN, new to DVD and Video. The Webslinger faces the ultimate challenge when his arch-nemesis discovers his identity and kidnaps his one true love, Mary Jane Watson. The stakes have never been higher as the dreaded Green Goblin tries to take control of the city and bring Spider-Man to his knees. The action gets even hotter when Kingpin and the Hobgoblin join forces in an all-out war with America's greatest crime fighter. It's a world of high-flying excitement you won't want to miss.

Review:

Spider-Man fanatics that can't wait another two years for the sequel to the 2002 theatrical blockbuster are encouraged to check out Buena Vista Home Video's second DVD of the web-slinger's animated adventures, which provides enough action and cliffhanger suspense to satiate all but the most rabid of Spidey's supporters. The feature is actually a five-episode story arc culled from the 1994-'98 animated television series. True to Marvel Comics fashion, a multitude of plot threads and familiar characters (including the Punisher) are woven throughout the main story line, which finds Spider-Man struggling not only to defeat the Green Goblin, the Hobgoblin, and the Kingpin, but also to clear the Daily Bugle's Robbie Robertson of criminal charges and rescue girlfriend Mary Jane Watson! It's a fast and furious 80 minutes, abetted by strong vocal performances and better-than-usual animation, though the occasional mix of computer and cel art clashes noticeably. --Paul Gaita

Additional Features:

Interestingly, while the feature itself is slated toward younger viewers, the supplemental material has a nostalgic slant that seems aimed toward pleasing their parents. Marvel Comics main man Stan Lee is featured on an optional commentary track, as well as in a 15-minute interview titled "Stan Lee's Soapbox." Both features touch more on Lee's life and the creation of the characters than on the episodes themselves, which may disappoint fans hungry for information about the series. But Lee's enthusiasm and history is a fun and informative background for newcomers to the Marvel universe. The disc also offers an episode from the 1967 Spider-Man animated series (which pits Spidey against Doctor Octopus as well as the Green Goblin) as well as a "Rogues' Gallery" interactive game. Oddly, the fifth (and most important) episode is offered in the supplemental menu, and not as part of the main feature. --Paul Gaita
