Marvel comic books Spider-man is swinging back into action in the latest sequel Spider-man 2. Two years have passed since Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) donned his Spider-man costume and now his life as a crime fighter is interfering with his personal life. One of his many problems is that he can’t become involved with his childhood girlfriend Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst) because of the danger it may bring her. The stress of being a super hero is causing him to have big problems with his super powers. For example, while swinging through the streets of New York his spider strength begins to fail, his web shooter malfunctions and his super eyesight and other spider senses are impaired. Who cares about a web shooter and super senses — I wish my eye sight was good enough to prevent me from stepping off a curb in front of oncoming traffic! Anyway, no sooner does he decide to throw his Spider-man outfit away when Mary Jane is captured by a super villain named Doc Ock (Alfred Molina). Once a talented scientist, Dr. Otto Octavius aka Doc Ock, was transformed into a man with four powerful metal tentacles coming out of his back during a failed fission experiment. Doc Ock is Spider-man’s most powerful enemy and when they meet Spidey is almost killed. You may be wondering if Spider-man 2 is as good as its predecessor. The answer is Yes and even better. It has great plot progression, better character development and with 54 million dollars in computer graphics the special effects are very impressive. Oh, there’s a bonus for all you guys who enjoyed Kirsten Dunst in the original rain scene. This time you’ll be treated to an ocean scene with Kirsten in a wet dress. (Of course, once again I’m out of luck.) Comic book enthusiasts will love this film because it’s not only well made, its fun and entertaining. I’m giving it an A rating.
This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
