Sam Raimi's Spider-Man sequel was darn near perfect. Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) takes the audience on an emotional roller coaster as he laments the loss of his ability to live the life of a normal college student and subsequently loses his powers. However when the nefarious Docrtor Octopus threatens the love of his life, Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst), Peter dons the Spidey costume once again to fight for her.
The second film in Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy hit the delicate balance of in eye-popping in flight fight scenes, emotional depth and comedy that have drawn fans to the Stan Lee's Spider-Man character for decades. The film features one of the most intense battle scenes ever imagined when Spidey fights Doc Oc on top of a runaway train.
