The cast is great and the effects are too, but it’s not as good as the first one. The main problems are that Spidey’s one-liners are kept to a bare minimum (during Octopus’ bank heist, Spidey hits him with a bag of coins and says “Here’s your change!”, but that’s about it) and Doc Ock is way too sympathetic to be a menacing villain. Still, it’s one of the best superhero movies ever made. Director Sam Raimi shows his old school horror movie roots in the awesome hospital massacre scene.
With Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane and James Franco as Harry Osborn, and featuring cameos by Willem Dafoe, Stan Lee, and Bruce Campbell. Based largely on Amazing Spider-Man issue # 50, “Spider-Man No More!”
