I know I sound like everyone else, but this is without question the greatest Spider-Man movie.
Ok, guys, just so you know when I first saw this, I didn’t like it as much as the first, I didn’t know why. But I looked up all of the fight scenes on YouTube after it got such great reviews, and I decided I wanted to go back and see it.
For the record, I’ve always loved Doc Ock. So I watched it again today, and I decided it was better than the first. The action scenes are outstanding, the villain is marvelous. Doc Ock is my favorite Spider-Man villain of all time. But that doesn’t mean that Willem Dafoe didn’t play a good Green Goblin. He still played an outstanding Goblin, which Willem Dafoe usually never disappoints me. But my favorite role that he did was Gill from Finding Nemo, one of the greatest animated movies ever made.
Although either Tobey Maguire or Tom Holland (from the MCU) are probably the best Spider-Men, the female lead, Kirsten Dunst, plays an okay role, but can get on my nerves sometimes. But I think Emma Stone played a better role of Spider-Man’s girlfriend, or Zendaya from Spider-Man: Homecoming. I must say, she didn’t do terrible in this one, she didn’t get over the top. It was a great movie anyways. Even James Franco does an incredible role for Harry Osborn. J. Jonah Jameson, Peter Parker’s boss from Daily Bugle, is a funny character, and I like him too. My favorite scene is when Spidey and Doctor Octopus are fighting in the subway. Sometimes when you watch something at first, it isn’t great, but it sometimes turns out great the second time. This is the perfect example, perfect as can be.
Now, the content review starts:
Positive Role Models: Peter Parker tries to change his ways of always being late.
Violence: There is definitely violence, but no blood, and not a lot of killing. Plenty of chases, explosions, etc. An experiment goes wrong on Doc Ock that turns him evil, and it kills his wife. Plenty of intense moments, but nothing over the top.
Language: Very mild, the “a” word is used once.
Drinking or Drugs: None.
Anyways, a great choice for tweens, and as CommonSenseMedia says it is, “a popcorn pleasure”.
These are the Spider-Man movies I've seen, ranked (exception of Amazing Spider-Man 2):
