This is ideal for all your little spidey fans for christmas.
My Spidey sense is tingling...
The original swinger returns. And what better place to purchase the amazing new Spiderman sequel and its predecessor than on the web?
Say hello to your "friendly neighbourhood Spiderman" as Tobey Maguire dons the famous red and black suit in this action packed blockbuster. Directed by Sam Raimi, who is a self-confessed comic book nut, this adaptation of the Marvel hero is second to none, with top performances from Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane and William Defoe as the Green Goblin. Great special effects (Spidey swinging through the streets of Manhattan especially) and a witty script make this the most successful comic conversion since the original "Batman".
The return of the original swinger, troubled Superhero Peter Parker to the big screen was a more than welcome one, as huge box office receipts and critical acclaim proved. Speaking personally I'm more than happy to concur that this 2nd film is a vast improvement on the first, with a better storyline, superior spectacular effects and fight scenes, and a vastly improved bad guy in place of William Defoe's lacklustre "Green Goblin" of the original.
Plot wise the ongoing problems of Mr Parker continue to mount up as he attempts to balance the pressures of work, college, and a disastrous love life (the lovely Kirsten Dunst returns as MJ) with the complication of being a spandex-clad superhero. J.J Jameson's "Daily Bugle" hate campaign isn't doing anything for his confidence either.
Meanwhile, following a disastrous experiment brilliant Scientist Dr Octo Octavious (Alfred Molina in fabulous form) ends up fusing 4 mechanical arms to his body and going insane – tearing up the city in a bid for ultimate power. There's only one reluctant superhero who can stop him – paging your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman.
A near relentless rollercoaster of a movie that still finds time to develop the characters and stick close to the original comic source, Spiderman 2 as a sequel is bigger, better and more confident all round, with Toby Maguire really growing into the role (he's already signed up for Spiderman 3 with a cinema release date of 4th May 2007 already pencilled in) and the door left open for the saga to go in any number of interesting ways (though the return of The Green Goblin is looking imminent). Make sure you catch this DVD in your web this Christmas.
