Peter Parker is going through a major identity crisis. Burned out from being Spider-Man, he decides to shelve his superhero alter ego, which leaves the city suffering in the wake of carnage left by the evil Doc Ock. In the meantime, Parker still can't act on his feelings for Mary Jane Watson, a girl he's loved since childhood.
Cinema as unabashed heroism. A spirited expansion of Raimi's first installment but contained in feeling. If Spider-Man was a hokey (but beautifully earnest) origin story, Spider-Man 2 is a tightly plotted comic-book masterpiece, utilizing duality as a basis for the film's tender romance versus its unhinged, euphoric action set-pieces. With a brilliant villain in Doc Ock (wonderfully played by Alfred Molina/Rahad Jackson), this remarkable sequel builds conflict out of Peter Parker's personal relationships, allowing seeds from the original film to grow and blossom yet never restricting itself as a "sequel" that can't be viewed on its own.
Sam Raimi is the star of the show here even with the Grade-A cast of Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, J.K.…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Funny how the greatest superhero movie ever made is not even about the superhero, but the man behind the mask.
For all intents and purposes, this should really be called Peter Parker 1 instead of Spider-Man 2, because the film is about him as a person, not about Spider-Man as a hero. It's about a guy trying to live a life full of intrusions from his superhero alter-ego, rather than a story about a superhero trying to save the world while real life intrudes.
And that's really why this is such a great film. We're made to really care about Peter's life and how terrible it has become since he became Spider-Man. He can't work a simple pizza delivery job,…
One of the finest sequels ever made and still counted amongst the greatest superhero flicks in existence, Spider-Man 2 is a remarkable follow-up to its already-impressive predecessor that skilfully builds upon the solid foundation provided by the first film, presents significant upgrades in each filmmaking aspect and beautifully balances all its elements to succeed as not just a de-facto standard of its genre but also as one of the best films of its year.
Set two years after the events of the first film, the story of Spider-Man 2 finds Peter Parker struggling to balance his personal life & his obligations as Spider-Man. His love interest is engaged to someone else, his grades have been steadily declining and he also seems…
Rewatched this with Chris "Hack Fraud" Allred
We all had some laughs and I said a whole lot of nothing because I didn't want them to hear my voice very often so I just stood in awkward silence trying to watch the movie but my stream kept getting fucked up. Which was sad.
Thankfully "Spider-Man 2" is still a fantastic flick so I couldn't really give that much of a damn. Rewatching this after viewing more of Sam Raimi's filmography was a ton of fun since now I can catch more of the subtle nods to some of his earlier works.
It also made me realize how great of a director he really is. Bringing…
imagine this in today's market: a superhero movie that simply finds the main character struggling with a difficult romance, making him emotionally vulnerable, while he battles a single villain whose inner turmoil neatly parallels his own. even the perfunctory setup for the next installment at least builds organically on already-developed relationships from the first movie. i think the middle act of this (Peter losing his powers, the will-they-or-won't-they stuff with MJ, and the weirdly pointless bits about Aunt May moving to a new apartment) really bogs things down; structurally it's a mess. but i'm prepared to forgive a lot solely for the El-train sequence, as exciting and resonant a comic-book movie action scene as you're likely to ever get. and Raimi, high on the clout he got from the first one, is allowed to go absolutely wild whenever he can. it's doubly refreshing to remember that movies like this used to be actually directed.
I know you think we can't be together, but can't you respect me enough to let me make my own decision? I know there'll be risks but I want to face them with you. It's wrong that we should be only half alive... half of ourselves. I love you. So here I am - standing in your doorway. I have always been standing in your doorway. Isn't it about time somebody saved your life?
Spider-Man 2 is a perfectly balanced film, encompassing all of the challenges Peter Parker faces as both a superhero, and as an underprivileged kid dealing with insecurities in Manhattan. Alfred Molina's Doctor Octopus remains one of the great supervillains to this day, solely for the reason…
Ah, the original spider man series. Nostalgia rushes over me in a lukewarm wave...

Tagline: This summer a man will face his destiny. A hero will be revealed
Bonus: James Franco as green goblin..
An almost perfect superhero film, let down by some a little-too-corny dialog.
Ugh SUCH A GOOD FILM but then it was so stupid when that baby was like oh yeah suddenly I have super strength and I can lift this grown man off a ledge but still SO GOOD
Nothing I say will do this film justice. A revelation that still holds power more than 10 years later. I wish movies like this were still made.
Dunst carries a lot of this film. She absolutely kills it. Peter is selfish and inconsiderate of her feelings but there's no point in this movie where she allows him to dictate what she does, and that's really great.
SPIDER-MAN 2 tangles with what I think are some of the most interesting aspects of the Peter Parker/Spider-Man character. He's not invincible. He's a part of the working class and struggles to get by. He's kind of a shitty guy. But this film makes him confront that instead of tiptoeing around it like the first one does.
Tobey Maguire still fails to be truly sympathetic to me, but at least in this one it feels like he's trying. JK Simmons continues…
This 2004 American superhero film, the sequel to 2002s ‘Spider-Man’, is directed by Sam Raimi and stars Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Alfred Molina, James Franco, Rosemary Harris and J.K Simmons.
Peter Parker (Maguire) lives in a small apartment in New York City whilst continuing to work as a photographer for the Daily Bugle and also protect the city as Spider-Man, which starts to take its toll on his studies, his work and his relationships with best friend Harry Osborn (Franco) and Mary-Jane Watson (Dunst).
Meanwhile, an experiment funded by OsCorp, Harry’s company inherited form his late father, goes horribly wrong. Doctor Otto Octavius (Molina) attempts to create a fusion power source with the help of 4 robotic tentacle arms, but…
I still prefer the original but I can totally see why most people adore this one more.
Mary Jane was a little dull in this one though.
Spider Man 2 is directed by Sam rami and stars Tobey McGuire Kirsten Dunst, James Franco and Alfred Molina. This is the sequel to the hit 2002 film and I loved the first one when I was young and still love it today, and I can say the same for this one as well. Spider Man 2 is one of my favourite films of all time, it's such a joy to watch, the acting once again is fantastic by all the cast. The special effects are great again and Doc ock is by far my favourite villain out of all the films that we have had so far. The convosations between him and Peter Parker are so interesting to listen…
Pretty self-explanatory question, but one I find very interesting.
Which film made you love film? What movie ignited your love…
