    Posted by: spidey, 2016-06-30, 16:37 - 0 comments

    Spiderman 2: the movie, was released in 2004. It was a follow up to the movie Spider-man, which was released two years prior (2003). Based on the Marvel comic book character fans have come to know and love, Spiderman, the franchise's second movie was well received by both the critics and the public. Many of the movie's main characters from Spider Man returned, including Kirsten Dunst (Spidey's love interest), James Franco (Harry Osborn) and Tobey McGuire (Spiderman).

    Spiderman 2: The Plot

    In Spiderman 2, Peter Parker is struggling to juggle his roles as crime fighter and student. His relationship with Mary Jane is initially on the outs, as she's engaged to another man.  Mary Ann and Peter eventually reconnect and her engagement with John Jameson is effectively over when she leaves him at the altar to be with Peter.

    This time around, Spider-man takes on the super villain, Dr. Otto Octavius, who is played by Alfred Molina. The Doctor has his sights set on destroying New York City and it, subsequently, becomes Spiderman's job to stop him.  Doc Ock is the movie's primary villain. He attempts to kidnap Spiderman's Aunt May during a bank robbery. Spiderman managed to foil the kidnapping but not the robbery. 

    As mentioned above, Spiderman 2 was very well received by both the public and critics. This is the second movie in the Spiderman trilogy. This one, like many superhero-themed movies, attracted a variety of people, both young and old. It did well at the box office, earning a whopping $783, million worldwide. It also received a number of awards, one of the most prestigious being, the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.

    Spiderman Games

    As with many superhero blockbusters, a Spiderman themed game was released both online and game-system versions. The online games are free. Those designed for game systems, which Activision publishes, are not.  Spiderman 2 can be played on the following game systems, GameCube, Xbox and PS2. In the game, players are given free reign over New York, including Liberty Island, Ellis Island, Roosevelt and Manhattan.  Spiderman takes on numerous villains and street thugs. The latter has a stash of serious weapons, including crowbars, machine guns, etc. Each villain uses his or her special weapon or power against Spiderman.  The villains featured in Spiderman 2 include Black Cat, Doc Octopus, Shocker, Mysterio, Beck and Calypso to name a few.  

    In Summary

    Spiderman 2 proved to be a hit for Tobey McGuire and company. It was a great follow up to Spiderman and sufficiently got the buzz going for Spiderman 3, which was Sony Entertainment's highest grossing movie. Spiderman 2, the movie, spawned numerous online games and one for various gaming system platforms. Spiderman 2 stars many of the first movie's primary characters. It continued some of the themes from Spiderman, the first movie in the series, in a way that was enjoyable for both critics and movie goers. It managed to be entertaining and interesting, rather than redundant.
