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

Feels like a comic book. It's a good thing

I'm really not so much into comic books and superheroes and all that, but this movie feels like I'm reading an actual comic book. They way it's edited and acted, the lines and everything. Not my style of movie making even for a comic book inspired movie,but it's great, fan will definitely love it. Fun, kinda exciting and overall good watch.

Disappointed.

Being completly new to Spider-Mans character I wanted to give myself a bit of backstory before watching the new Spider-Man: Homecoming movie and decided to start by watching the three original Spider-Man movies.

While the first Spider-Man (2002) was being really enjoyable, even though very cheesy at times, Spider-Man 2 is just nothing. Stuff was happening in front of me but that's it.

I think Tobey Maguire is a good Spider-Man, he has this dorky face and fits really into this nerdy outcast kind of role, but I think his performance in this movie was just bad. He had the same facial expression for 90% of the movie and while this wasn't so bad in the first one, in this movie it just got irritating. No matter if a scene was sad or shocking or intense, he always looked like he tried smiling really awkwardly for a school picture, but maybe that was just me.

Mary Jane was fine as a generic love interest, I didn't really sympathise with her in the first one and I didn't in this one either, but she was fine, I wasn't bothered by her.

A thing that in fact did bother me a lot was the boring and predictable subplot between Peter and MJ. I don't really get this plot because Peter clearly turned her down for her own safety at the end of the first movie but is now mad at her for dating another guy, it's ridiculous. I get that he loves her and at the same time wants her to be save but come one, you have to decide what you want.

I also think the villain of this movie, Dr. Otto Octavius, was just the Green Goblin with a bit different story. Both are scientists, both want to show of their big break-throughs, both experiments went wrong, both became evil and both of them couldn't control themselves anymore all the time. I am not an comic book expert but I am sure there are a lot of other villains from the Spider-Man comics you could have used instead.

Even though they tried to make the special effects look good I thought they were awful. In the first movie the effects were good because they didn't exaggerated them, which they did in this movie. For me, it was just too much and additionally it looked horrible at times.

This movie was bearable for maybe half of the time, but when Peter started losing his powers out of the blue it got really boring. I was happy when this movie ended.

Maybe it's a different thing watching the movie at the time it came out, but now in the year 2018 it's just nothing. I decided to skip Spider-Man 3 and just watch Spider-Man: Homecoming instead and I definitely didn't regret it.

It's a fine movie and no shame on you for liking it, but for me it was just disappointing after watching Spider-Man (2002).
