Notes: 
Storyline Heading
Mild-mannered Peter Parker is juggling the delicate balance of his dual life as a college student and a superhuman crime fighter. His life becomes even more complicated when he confronts a new nemesis, the brilliant Otto Octavius, who has been reincarnated as the maniacal and multi-tentacled "Doc Ock."
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action - Very similar to the first movie. However, since it has less to setup in the story there seems to be even more "cool" action than in the first movie. There's also some very funny scenes added in just for fun since they aren't really needed for the story.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Spider-Man 2 has all the elements of a good, but not great, superhero motion picture. While lacking the tragic grandeur that made last year's Hulk such a unique experience, Spider-Man 2 fills the void with solid character development, self-referential humor, effects-enhanced action, and (unfortunately) talky pop psychology.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent Now this is what a superhero movie should be. "Spider-Man 2" believes in its story in the same way serious comic readers believe, when the adventures on the page express their own dreams and wishes. It's not camp and it's not nostalgia, it's not wall-to-wall special effects and it's not pickled in angst. It's simply and poignantly a realization that being Spider-Man is a burden that Peter Parker is not entirely willing to bear.

USA Today Full Review
Excellent With special effects so convincing you don't even think about them, a head-case hero and a three-dimensional villain who is his equal, socko Spider-Man 2 has something for everyone.
