Is the new Spider-Man 2 comic book-based action movie with Spidey and Dr. Octopus a smash hit or a total mess? Find out with Kidzworld's movie review!

Marvel Comics' greatest heroes and villains explode back into theaters with Spider-Man 2. This hot new movie brings Spidey back and introduces the villainous Dr. Octopus. If you're a comic book fan then watching your fave super heroes and villains come to life with the original Spider-Man movie, plus all the awesome comic book movies in the last few years, has been awesome. Is Spider-Man 2 as good as the original? Check out our movie review for the details!

Spider-Man Comic Book Stories Come To Life

Spider-Man 2 starts a few months after the first movie left off. Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) is way stressed out and slippin' up at work, school and with Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst) - 'cuz he's spending all his time fighting crime as Spidey. And, all that trouble is before the tentacle-packin' Doc Ock starts to bust up the big apple. The main theme of the Spider-Man 2 movie is about Peter dealing with being Spider-Man and what that means for his friends, family, career and MJ. Of course there are also a lot of cool fights with the evil mad scientist, Dr. Otto Octavius (no relation to Kidzworld's Mad Scientist of course).

Super Heroic Spider-Man 2 Action!

If you're looking for comic book characters to come to life, you're gonna get it! Spider-Man is back in the old red and blue, but the most impressive act in the movie is Dr. Octopus and his awesome tentacles. They look great and are actual metal, not a bunch of computer graphics! There are also some wicked scenes - the transit train fight, anytime when J. Jonah Jameson is around, and when Aunt May kicks Doc Ock's butt.

Spider-Man 2 - Doc Ock Strikes!

Even with all the super-cool special effects, Spider-Man 2 has problems even bigger than Dr. Octopus. The movie tries way too hard to get a message about super powers and responsibility across and it ends up feeling awkward. There are also plot holes you could drive a truck through and they stretch the believability factor - even for a comic book movie.

Spider-Man 2 - DVD Features

This DVD has two discs of great extras for you to check out. You can test just how much you know about Spidey with a trivia game, watch music videos and take a behind-the-scenes look at Spider-Man 2 with several featurettes. If that's not enough, why not take a spin through the blooper reel and see that even superheroes make mistakes sometimes!

Spider-Man 2 Bottom Line

Is two and a half hours of web-slinging, superhero action movie worth the price of the DVD? Yup! Even though it feels a bit clumsy, Spider-Man 2 is a must-see movie for comic book fans and New Yorkers. It's also worth watching for anyone in the mood for a decent action flick.

Spider-Man 2 Movie Rating: 4

Could You Handle Superpowers?

  • Totally! I'd save the world 10 times before lunch every day.
  • They'd be cool, but I'd want to have a life too!
  • No way! I just want to chill with my friends.
  • If I had superpowers I'd be a villain.
