Stan Lee's all-too-human superhero returns to the screen in this highly anticipated sequel to 2002's blockbuster hit Spider-Man. Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) is attempting to juggle college classes and his job as a photographer with the Daily Bugle while maintaining his secret life as costumed crime-fighter Spider-Man. Parker is also struggling to hold on to his relationship with Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst), who is beginning to enjoy success as a model and actress, and both Mary Jane and Peter have noticed he's beginning to buckle under the strain. Parker's friendship with Harry Osborn (James Franco) is also beginning to fray due to Peter's seeming alliance with Spider-Man, whom Harry blames for the death of his father, the nefarious Norman Osborn. As Parker weighs his responsibilities to himself and those around him against the obligations that come with his special powers, Spider-Man is faced with a new nemesis -- Dr. Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina), a deranged scientist whose latest project has turned him into the near-invincible cyborg Doctor Octopus. Spider-Man 2 was directed by Sam Raimi, who helmed the first film, and much of the original cast has also reunited for this sequel, including Rosemary Harris, J.K. Simmons, and Bruce Campbell. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Is SPIDER MAN 2 better than the original SM? Often, but not always. Can you turn a super-hero movie into a romance? A social tract? Sure, but you do it at the expense of those adrenaline rushes that are the raison d'etre of action movies. As good as Dunst and Maguire are in their roles, the romance can never be as important to a film like this as the action set pieces. Nonetheless, the movie tries harder than most to have it all ways, and sometime it succeeds. The best sequence is the entire subway scene, as Spidey saves the passengers, and they return the favor. This is wonderful stuff, and thankfully, the moviemakers don't wring the sentimentality dry or push it any farther than the idea and moment can sustain. I'm up for number 3.
