It is not often that Hollywood manages to crank out a sequel that is worth watching. It is even less frequent that a sequel is better than its predecessor, but I think we have a case of that with Spiderman 2. It manages to keep that comic-book feel, and stay interesting, while ratcheting up the action a notch or two. I’m also not as dismayed by Tobey Maguire in the lead since I’ve seen him do it once already, and I think he does any even better job in this movie exploring the namesake character. The villian is more interesting in this one as well.
