Spider-Man 2

2 out of 5 snowstones

I was mildly enthusiastic about the first installment of our arachnoid superhero, but part 2 of the series doesn't bring much more to the concept. Director Sam Raimi deserves some credit for avoiding Bruckheimer-type, apocalyptic "let's detonate Manhattan" scenes, choosing instead for rapid action scenes, often in tight spaces. But the boring and predictable storyline dominates too much over the action scenes, which themselves often have very detectable CGI.
