More than a few critics hailed Spider-Man 2 as "the best superhero movie ever," and there's no compelling reason to argue--thanks to a bigger budget, better special effects, and a dynamic, character-driven plot, it's a notch above Spider-Man in terms of emotional depth and rich comic-book sensibility. Ordinary People Oscar-winner Alvin Sargent received screenplay credit, and celebrated author and comic-book expert Michael Chabon worked on the story, but it's director Sam Raimi's affinity for the material that brings Spidey 2 to vivid life. When a fusion experiment goes terribly wrong, a brilliant physicist (Alfred Molina) is turned into Spidey's newest nemesis, the deranged, mechanically tentacled "Doctor Octopus," obsessed with completing his experiment and killing Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire) in the process. Even more compelling is Peter Parker's urgent dilemma: continue his burdensome, lonely life of crime-fighting as Spider-Man, or pursue love and happiness with Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst)? Molina's outstanding as a tragic villain controlled by his own invention, and the action sequences are nothing less than breathtaking, but the real success of Spider-Man 2 is its sense of priorities. With all of Hollywood's biggest and best toys at his disposal, Raimi and his writers stay true to the Marvel mythology, honoring Spider-Man creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, and setting the bar impressively high for the challenge of Spider-Man 3. --Jeff Shannon
We all know that Spider-Man 2 is amazing. But it's even more amazing in 4k! The only flaw to this disc is that it doesn't include Spider-Man 2.1 nor any special features. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Tony Black

|"Unrated"-- anything bad?||
The only reason it carries the Unrated tag is most likely because the filmmakers didn't submit to the ratings board (MPAA) for rating.
This is common in re-release DVDs like this, but it doesn't mean there are any "naughty" extras.

|Double the price?||
Same question about Labyrnth (CE). Disappointing as I was looking forward to seeing the new features, but as a policy I deleted it from my current list. I think $22 or $24 was a great deal, but 200% increase IS excessive and shouldn't be encouraged.
