SPIDER-MAN 2

BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELL
JULY 24, 2013

One of the best superhero films of all-time, “Spider-Man 2,” develops such a strong emotional rapport, it is hard not to become engrossed in the world. With the struggle between being a superhero and a regular guy highlighted perfectly, the inner struggles match the exquisite outer efforts in the form of the brilliant Alfred Molina in the role of his career, as Doc Ock. With three epic battles sequences, a powerful and endearing love story, and a masterful soundtrack filled with original songs from famous artists (Dashboard Confessional, Yellowcard, and Train), “Spider-Man 2” is not only one of my favorite superhero films but one of my favorite movies of all-time.
