When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Peter Parker is an unhappy man: after two years of fighting crime as Spider-Man, his life has begun to fall apart. The girl he loves is engaged to someone else, his grades are slipping, he cannot keep any of his jobs, and on top of it, the newspaper Daily Bugle is attacking him viciously, claiming that Spider-Man is a criminal. He reaches the breaking point and gives up the crime fighter's life, once and for all. But after a failed fusion experiment, eccentric and obsessive scientist Dr. Otto Octavius is transformed into super villain Doctor Octopus, Doc Ock for short, having four long tentacles as extra hands. Peter guesses it might just be time for Spider-Man to return, but would he act upon it?Written by
If you look closely at Peter's apartment, you can see the picture he took of Mary-Jane just before he was bitten by a radioactive spider. It was supposed to represent the last moment of innocence in Peter's life before it changed forever. See more »
There are two close-ups of Peter's head when he is lying on the floor of the train: one of the shots has a black shoe with white laces very near his head, the other a blue, white, and black shoe, also right next to his head. In the wider overhead shots of Peter, no one standing around him is wearing shoes like that, nor are they standing close enough for their feet to be in the close-up shot in the first place.

She looks at me everyday. Mary Jane Watson. Oh boy! If she only knew how I felt about her. But she can never know. I made a choice once to live a life of responsibility. A life she can never be a part of. Who am I? I'm Spider-Man, given a job to do. And I'm Peter Parker, and I too have a job.

Towards the end of the closing credits, a remix of the theme song from the original Spider-Man animated series is played. See more »
Depending on which country you see the film, much of the soundtrack is influenced by that country's local artists - or artists presently being promoted in that country. For example, in Britain the film's primary song is Switchfoot's "Meant to Live" while in the U.S. the focus in the movie (and on the radio) is Dashboard Confessional's Vindicated. See more »
Almost good as the first but still not better than the original Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movie
This was an alright sequel but could have been much better. I love Spider-Man (2002) to death, I love Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) to death my all time favorite film. I love Peter Parker/ Spider-Man character he is my favorite superhero. This movie too me was a lighter tone, I like this film just it is not my favorite. It was just less action and more dramatic movie than sci-fi action. It more focus on Peter Parker's life and Spider-Man character's life than on the story it self's. I did like Peter Parker's hard life that he was poor but where is the action and the excitement in this movie? It is all gone.
I like that Sam Raimi come back and that they bring back Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco and Rosemary Harris, while Cliff Robertson and Willem Dafoe return only in a cameo role one scene. Alfred Molina as Otto Octavius / Doctor Octopus was an alright villain but he wasn't terrifying or menacing enough like was Willem Dafoe as Norman Osborn / Green Goblin, Octopus just wasn't. I thought he was a weak villain and I just didn't understand the character at all what did he want to do with tritium to fuel his reactor, what did he wanted too do? I didn't understand the science.
Tobey Maguire was flat too me as Peter Parker he quit been Spider-Man and he was losing his powers that was stupid idea in my opinion. Peter running on the roof with his glasses on it, he was really ugly man too me. He looked ugly in my opinion. Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson fall flat in my opinion all she did was complaining about Peter not coming too see her show and she was caring all about her show. She was selfish ungrateful and that a lot. She was engaged to another guy and Peter had to live with his quilt. Kirsten Dunst in this movie just wasn't likable, like she was in the first movie. She wasn't hot, sexy and supportive enough like she was in the first movie. Screenplay David Koepp was replaced by Alvin Sargent that is why the movie wasn't good as the first was. James Franco as Harry Osborn was a terrible friend to Peter and their bond of friendship fall flat.
I did however liked special effects for Spider-Man suit and Doctor Octopus they were good CGI excellent effects. I like that Spider-Man fights off Doctor Octopus on a train roof and safes all those people on a train a young mommy with a baby on it, I love that in this movie. I liked the song playing on the end of credits Vindicated by Dashboard Confessional I love that song on the end of the film I love the song so much. Spider-Man 2 however was better as - The Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2 it was more decent too me than 2 awful movies with Andrew Garfield.
Not much to say about the movie anymore it is a good movie just I wish there would be more action in it, more stronger villains and I also wish Mary Jane wouldn't have found out Peter secret on the end of the film. I wish we would have a stronger ending like the first movie had which was a bad-ass ending in the first movie. I like this film just it is not my favorite and this sequel had a weak ending in my opinion.
