Peter's life becomes even more complicated when he confronts a new nemesis, the brilliant Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina) who has been reincarnated as the maniacal and multi-tentacled "Doc Ock." When Doc Ock kidnaps MJ (Kirsten Dunst), Spider-Man must swing back into action as the adventure reaches new heights of unprecedented excitement.

Critics Consensus: Boasting an entertaining villain and deeper emotional focus, this is a nimble sequel that improves upon the original.

A lot of talent to lavish on a single movie, but the result is uncommonly smart for the genre, and...

Simultaneously funnier, darker, and more emotional than its forebear.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Spider-Man 2, the second in the Tobey Maguire-era Spider-Man trilogy, has lots of comic book-style violence. Cars (taxis, most often) are thrown into buildings, heroes and villains throw each other from high buildings, and, perhaps most disturbingly, the wife of a character is killed when glass in a building shatters and the shards fly straight for her face. There is some drinking -- a character is shown drinking whiskey at a bar and at home. Beyond this, the film raises important metaphorical questions about the importance of using your talents and gifts to their peak potential instead of casting them aside in order to be "normal."
