Spiderman 2

Spiderman 2 (**+)

I'm a Spiderman comic fan, so I really liked how this movie stayed true to Spidey's signature moves. The FX were incredible, and they were able to move seamlessly from live action to CGI. So why the less-than-good rating? Primarily because of Kirsten Dunst. I don't think she's a good fit for the role of MJ and she just plain ol' bugs me in this movie.


  • Afraid I ahve to agree with you. I loved Spidey since I was a kid, but the comics and the original cartoon and all. These movies are just...ugh. And Kirsten Dunst is too...ugh, too. They jut don't mesh well.
    Spiderman is cool though...almost too coool!!

  • Maybe it was the big screen.. Maybe it was the opening night thrill.. maybe it was the enthusiastic audience... but I liked this movie way more than 2.5 stars. Even Kirsten Dunst couldn't drag it down for me. Effects, acting, storyline, atmosphere... all rocked. I bet it just doesn't translate as well to the home experience. Maybe Kirsten's head just looks bigger on the smaller viewing screen?
