Maguire has limited moments of acting inspiration while Dunst wanders aimlessly through a role that may be too normal for her.

The lightning that struck for so many of this summer's sequels fails to ignite Spider-Man 2. The franchise remains a tolerable proposition tolerably well-executed.

If Raimi continues in this direction, he might be well on his way to the greatest superhero trilogy of all time.

Whatever sins this film commits at the start of the show I forgave when I saw how they worked out.

It has a resonating tenderness that no superhero movie is likely to approach anytime soon.

This spectacularly engaging comic-book fantasy is a textbook example of what a mass-audience movie ought to be.

It improves on the first one: better action, better comedy.

Spider-Man 2 is probably more of a lateral step but that doesn't stop this episode from being a lot of fun.

It is so rare that a sequel improves upon the original, but that is exactly what Sam Raimi and company have done with the magnificent [I]Spider-Man 2[/I].

While it didn't leave me with the same sense of awe, it left me much more satisfied than not, and that's good enough

Like the first installment, refreshingly perverse in its intent.

Being a superhero has big financial and psychological drawbacks.

We've at last come to a point when the most well-rounded, psychologically complex character on any movie screen in town happens to wear spandex tights and swing from webs.

This isn't just great filmmaking, it's great filmgoing.

Exciting sequel that improves dramatically on the effects of the first, but also has an emotional depth that is surprising in a blockbuster this big.
