way too long
28 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this 2 hour and 6 minute documentary on the making of "Spider-Man 2) can be found on the second disc of the 2-DVD special edition of the aforementioned movie. It covers everything about the production. Story, character, visual & costume design, direction, the custom made 'Spider-cam", the stunt work, visual & practical effects, the sound and music are all included her. As well as footage from the premiere and what everyone learned from the experience. Which is all well and good, but at over 2 hours, it's also repetitive (how many times must we hear that Alfred Molina hates stunt work, 5 times was enough for me, but it went on). Plus every single time Kirsten Dunst spoke, she was so stupid that I felt like hitting her with a brick. A good documentary should very seldom by over 90 minutes IF that.

My Grade: C-
