It's one of those rare sequels that's more satisfying than the original. The first movie had to spin the premise; the second gets to fly with it.

A sequel that is better than the original in many respects.

It is wall-crawling hands down the most adrenaline pumping super hero flick ever.

I can't figure out why anybody would want to waste 127 minutes sitting through this thing.

Spider-Man 2 will make a lot of money, it will sell a lot of fast food, it will cause comic book dorks to complain about some trite, mundane details...

The genius of director Sam Raimi is to take the fantastic and make it believably, achingly human.

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
