Movie Review: Spider-man 2 (2004)


My Rating: 4Stars

This afternoon I went to see the movie “Spiderman 2” at Broadway Cinema, Olympian Plaza. Another one of the movies from my Must See Movies list.

This is a good sequel to the Spiderman trilogy, and the title of “good sequel” is not easily awarded to just any movie on my scale . The last good sequel I saw was “Bad Boys II“.

In this version of the Spiderman trilogy it used an unique method of bringing the audience up to date on what happened in the previous episode. This time the characters are more developed, the acting is more mature and overall better. I guess this may be contributed to the actors themselves being more mature and experienced.

I find that it has the right balance of action and drama to be a good movie in my books. Unfortunately, it was not enough to capture the audiences around me at the theatre so that I can enjoy the movie, and it did not help things for many of them to be kids. Now this brings up a good point to mention, especially for those who will be taking their kids to this movie. In my opinion this is not a kids movie, it has too much drama and dialogue to keep those young adults in their seats for the 2 hours and 7 minutes of the movie.

BTW: if this episode is not enough for you Spiderman addicts… there will be a third.
