All-New 2-Disc Extended Cut - Includes Never-Before-Seen Footage!
In Spider-Man 2, the latest installment in the blockbuster Spider-Man series, based on the classic Marvel Comics hero, Tobey Maguire returns as the mild-mannered Peter Parker, who is juggling the delicate balance of his dual life as college student and a superhuman crime fighter. 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!

"...solid character development, self-referential humor, effects-enhanced action...  James Berardinelli's ReelViews
"...outdoes the original by leaps and bounds.  Jeff Giles, NewsWeek
"A masterpiece of pop filmmaking--a fantastic, exuberant entertainment that manages to be both sleek and substantial without being patronizing.  Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"The Best Superhero Movie I've Ever Seen!  Roger Ebert, Ebert & Roeper
"Crackerjack entertainment from start to finish...improves in every way on its predecessor...  Todd McCarthy, Variety

Editor's Note
Sam Raimi's follow-up to SPIDER-MAN finds Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) struggling to balance his everyday life with his alter ego as the web-slinging superhero. Still carrying the burden of keeping his crime-fighting identity from those closest to him--including his longtime love Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst), his best friend Harry Osborn (James Franco), and his doting Aunt May (Rosemary Harris)--Parker must also face off against a dangerous new menace, Dr. Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina), a scientist driven mad by experiments involving powerful mechanical arms. When the deranged Octavius (aka Doc Ock) forms an alliance with the vengeful Osborn, who blames Spider-Man for the death of his father, the wall-crawling hero is in for his biggest battle yet.

With SPIDER-MAN 2, Raimi retains--and improves on--all the elements that made the first film so good, including an excellent story (crafted, in part, by acclaimed novelist Michael Chabon), tight pacing, and stunning special effects. Parker's internal conflicts are even greater than before, and Maguire adds emotional depth to every scene. Returning actors Dunst, Franco, Harris, and J.K. Simmons (once again portraying Parker's tough-talking boss, J. Jonah Jameson) are all pitch-perfect in their roles, and, as the once-noble Octavius, Molina is remarkable, relishing his villainous lines, while giving the character a surprisingly vulnerable side. Throughout the movie, Raimi expertly balances drama and humor with dynamic action sequences, making SPIDER-MAN 2 feel more like a continuation of the original tale than an obligatory sequel. For a Hollywood movie, that's a real feat. This extended edition includes eight minutes of new footage, plus documentaries, commentary, and an advance look at SPIDER-MAN 3.

Expert Review Spider-Man 2.1 - DVD
By: Rafe Telsch Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 4/7/2007 10:17 PM
With Spider-Man 3 rapidly approaching to open 2007's summer movie season, it seems only appropriate that Sony pictures releases a new version of Spider-Man 2 on DVD, much like they did with Spider-Man when the first sequel hit theaters. Spider-Man 2.1 includes new trivia, a more focused look at the visual effects of the film, and eight minutes of new footage, fully integrated into the movie. It needs none of it, however, as Spider-Man 2 was already close to comic book adaptation perfection. ...read the full review

Ultimate DVD
3 stars out of 5 -- "The new footage consists of some extended dialogue scenes, some extra action moments and other bits and bobs, most of which are entertaining enough in themselves..." 06/01/2007 p.121

Chicago Sun-Times 10 of 10
Now this is what a superhero movie should be. Spider-Man 2 believes in its story in the same way serious comic readers believe, when the adventures on the page express their own dreams and wishes. It's not camp and it's not nostalgia, it's not wall-to-wall special effects and it's not pickled in angst. It's simply and poignantly a realization that being Spider-Man is a burden that Peter Parker is not entirely willing to bear..."Spider-Man 2" is the best superhero movie since the modern genre was launched with "Superman" (1978)...It's a real movie, full-blooded and smart, with qualities even for those who have no idea who Stan Lee is. It's a superhero movie for people who don't go to superhero movies, and for those who do, it's the one they've been yearning for. - Roger Ebert

Reel.com 9 of 10
Your friendly neighborhood web-slinger's back and better than ever in Spider-Man 2, the vastly superior sequel to the 2002 smash hit. A spectacularly entertaining blend of slam-bang action sequences and character-driven narrative, Spider-Man 2 should be used as a template for all upcoming feature films based on Marvel Comics superheroes. It's that rarity among popcorn movies, a big-budget piece of escapism that's actually witty, thoughtful, and emotionally engaging...Occasionally, Raimi's otherwise assured grip on the material falters a bit. He tends to lay on the pat homilies about heroism a bit thick, but this is a minor criticism of a film that improves considerably upon Spider-Man, in terms of storyline, character development, and action set pieces. - Tim Knight
