Best of the Spidermans
Spiderman 2 is undeniably the best of the franchise. With the familiar and cliched origin story out of the way, the film presents a very interesting dilemma of Tobey Maguire's character adjusting to his new identity and fighting new demons. Some of the acting and set pieces still verge on the ludicrous, but the film is much more dramatically grounded. The action sequences likewise have more weight here and Alfred Molina plays a more flawed and tragic villain than the maniacal Willem Dafoe.
