Spider-Man 2 was absolutely awesome. I really don't think that Sam Raimi, one of my favorite directors, could have done a better job on this movie. It was everything that I had hoped it would be and then some. It even appealed to long-time Spider-Man fan in me, which proves that Sam was there reading the same, original, issues of Amazing Spider-Man that I was back in the 1960's. I liked this film better than Sam's original Spider-Man back in those halcyon days of the Summer of 2002. And, Doc Ock is so exquisitely carried off that it surprised even this jaded comics fan. Kudos to all involved; everyone behind this film deserves the success it will undoubtedly have.
