Two years on, and life’s just got tougher for Peter Parker (Maguire). He’s having problems dealing with his feelings for Mary Jane (Dunst), his editor at the Daily Bugle (Simmons) keeps firing him, his college work is slipping, and his best mate Harry (Franco) is desperate for vengeance against his crimefighting alter ego.

A minor improvement on the first film makes for a major success when compared with its summer competition. Sam Raimi has once again crafted a blockbuster that thinks as hard as it thwacks – in a word, amazing.
