Almost good as the first but still not better than the original Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movie

This was an alright sequel but could have been much better. I love Spider-Man (2002) to death, I love Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) to death my all time favorite film. I love Peter Parker/ Spider-Man character he is my favorite superhero. This movie too me was a lighter tone, I like this film just it is not my favorite. It was just less action and more dramatic movie than sci-fi action. It more focus on Peter Parker's life and Spider-Man character's life than on the story it self's. I did like Peter Parker's hard life that he was poor but where is the action and the excitement in this movie? It is all gone.

I like that Sam Raimi come back and that they bring back Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco and Rosemary Harris, while Cliff Robertson and Willem Dafoe return only in a cameo role one scene. Alfred Molina as Otto Octavius / Doctor Octopus was an alright villain but he wasn't terrifying or menacing enough like was Willem Dafoe as Norman Osborn / Green Goblin, Octopus just wasn't. I thought he was a weak villain and I just didn't understand the character at all what did he want to do with tritium to fuel his reactor, what did he wanted too do? I didn't understand the science.

Tobey Maguire was flat too me as Peter Parker he quit been Spider-Man and he was losing his powers that was stupid idea in my opinion. Peter running on the roof with his glasses on it, he was really ugly man too me. He looked ugly in my opinion. Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson fall flat in my opinion all she did was complaining about Peter not coming too see her show and she was caring all about her show. She was selfish ungrateful and that a lot. She was engaged to another guy and Peter had to live with his quilt. Kirsten Dunst in this movie just wasn't likable, like she was in the first movie. She wasn't hot, sexy and supportive enough like she was in the first movie. Screenplay David Koepp was replaced by Alvin Sargent that is why the movie wasn't good as the first was. James Franco as Harry Osborn was a terrible friend to Peter and their bond of friendship fall flat.

I did however liked special effects for Spider-Man suit and Doctor Octopus they were good CGI excellent effects. I like that Spider-Man fights off Doctor Octopus on a train roof and safes all those people on a train a young mommy with a baby on it, I love that in this movie. I liked the song playing on the end of credits Vindicated by Dashboard Confessional I love that song on the end of the film I love the song so much. Spider-Man 2 however was better as - The Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2 it was more decent too me than 2 awful movies with Andrew Garfield.

Not much to say about the movie anymore it is a good movie just I wish there would be more action in it, more stronger villains and I also wish Mary Jane wouldn't have found out Peter secret on the end of the film. I wish we would have a stronger ending like the first movie had which was a bad-ass ending in the first movie. I like this film just it is not my favorite and this sequel had a weak ending in my opinion.

Truly Outdoes the First

Wow. That's all I can manage to say after watching this film, wow. This movie really blew me away in all its aspects. The performances were top rate, especially Alfred Molina's portrayal of Dr. Otto Octavius. He really knows how to play that comic book villain with a sense of understanding so to speak. Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst romance is a truly interesting and different outlook on being a super hero. We often dream of being super heroes, and yet here we see just the opposite. The audience feels Peter's conflict between protecting the innocent and letting his own life suffer or letting it go and living the life he's always wanted. To get everything he ever desired, he must give up his double-life. Despite whether he gives up being Spider-man or not, he will still forever have to deal with the complication of his dying friendship with Harry Osborn( James Franco). Franco is my favorite actor in this film, a young millionaire dealing with the death of his father, his friend being the only one who can help him bring the murder to justice. And yet, unbeknownst to him, his friend is actually the wall crawler himself. A extremely well done screenplay. Sam Raimi adds touches of humor to the story and it blends in quite well.

The characters are just so well done and intertwined with one another. Sam Raimi makes more than just a comic blockbuster but a well-defined drama of sorts. Even the villain has his moments.

The action is unbelievable and truly out does the first. Future superhero films will have to work hard to surpass what is seen here. The train chase is by far my favorite scene in the film, truly adrenaline pumping!! Audiences do have to wait a bit, but once a fight starts prepare to be simply amazed. Not only this, but the score is magnificent!! I love Danny Elfman!! It captures each moment exactly the way audiences envision it. Another sequel is surely on the way. This is definitely one of my favorite films of 2004, putting other comic book films of the same year to shame, such as "Blade: Trinity".

Mature, nuanced and layered; the superhero genre at some of its very best.

It's hard to decide whether or not I prefer this film to the first, as it tells - in some ways - a more mature, nuanced and layered tale, but what isn't hard to decide is that 'Spider-Man 2 (2004)' is a fantastic movie and easily one of the best sequels of all time. The villain is wonderfully rounded, his motivations constantly clear and his character arc drawn in full before the credits roll, and presents both a physical and psychological challenge for our hero. The story expertly balances the phenomenally fun yet still emotionally resonant web-slinging sequences (a high-speed train in danger provides one of the feature's nicest character moments whereas the whole 'bank' section is amazingly accomplished and thunderously entertaining) with the relatable central dilemma of our very human protagonist. Raimi's directing seems to be stepped up a little, too, as he leans further into his own quirky style - evident in the renowned 'surgery' scene which is one of the best in the entire film. The entire piece just gels together to make a cohesive, complex and rare example of the superhero genre at some of its very best. 9/10
