Super heroes aren't enough, we also have super villains! And of course, our favorite guy is the one to confront them and save the world. This sequel is bigger, louder, with more vehicular mayhem and endless blowie uppie stuff, which is too bad, because this cast has skillful actors who can do anything. Watch for the lengthy scene with Peter and Aunt May; they are both terrific!
In this one we learn more about Peter's father, which was a welcome addition, and the relationship between Peter and Gwen is easy and fun. Another plus, this had more humor, with one-liners and goofy physical comedy. The late-in-the-movie evolution of Harry Osborne to Green Goblin is nothing but a prequel to the next movie.
To me, this felt like three movies...1) for Spider-Man fans, 2) for lovers of CGI, and 3) that aforementioned prequel. I enjoyed it, but found myself yawning during the lengthy scenes in which Midtown Manhatten is demolished. I saw the 3D version, so ducked from flying debris and marveled at a snowfall. Be advised, the story is paramount, $o $ave your money on the 3D ver$ion.
