| Quite surprisingly good
Well I saw the first and Thought .. OK, nice movie, but nothing special. So I wasn't looking much forward to the second one. Boy was I wrong.. The second one has it all... And I mean all. Suspense, romance, action and some quite nice Effects. Tobey Maguire is performing well, and Kirsten Dunst... wauw.... she is breathtaking...And only 22, so we can only hope to see more of her the coming years. Last but not least, Alfred Molina, who is the bad guy. He is very convincing and very very nasty. The computer-effects used are better than I have ever seen. Now you get the feeling of flying. I recommend all to see this movie, yes girls too. Remember.. movies are best in the cinema!

Trivia

Phil LaMarr auditioned to play the elevator passenger. Hal Sparks got the role and LaMarr settled for an uncredited appearance as a train passenger.


Quotes

Peter Parker: She looks at me everyday. Mary Jane Watson. Oh boy! If she only knew how I felt about her. But she can never know. I made a choice once to live a life of responsibility. A life she can never be a part of. Who am I? I'm Spider-Man, given a job to do....


Goofs

On the way to the play when Spider-Man is chasing the criminals in the car, the passenger is using a shotgun which switches to an automatic weapon which then switches back to a shotgun in a matter of seconds. There is no time for him to switch the guns that fast in the scene.


Crazy Credits

Alfred Molina is credited as Doc Ock and Dr. Otto Octavius, but not "Dr. Octopus", the character's official comic book name.


Alternate Versions

An extended version of the film, titled Spiderman 2.1, was released on DVD in April 2007. It contains 8 extra minutes (for a total running time of 2:15) in 3 new, 1 alternate, and 11 extended scenes. Just over half the added material fleshes out the plot: a new scene where a friend challenges MJ about her decision to marry, an extra minute in Peter's birthday party to underscore Harry's hatred of Spiderman, an extended, more downbeat conversation with MJ afterwards (seen in some TV versions), a longer introduction of Octavius and his wife, a brief new scene where Peter in class is distracted by both his fears about Octavius's experiment and his love for MJ, and a bit more of Peter trying to talk his way into MJ's play. There is extra comedy, with more of the pizza delivery scene, a longer, completely different elevator encounter, and a brief new scene where Jameson plays at being Spidey in his office. Two extended scenes address the movie's themes more than the plot: there is over a minute more with the doctor and a bit more of Peter's conversation with Ben. Finally, there are tiny extra additions to two early action scenes, and more than a minute added to the two major Doc Oc encounters: a brief extra sequence in the first fight, and a longer one atop the train.
