Spider-Man 2

Spidey is torn between two conflicting desires: his love for MJ, and his sense of duty to use his powers for good. Love wins, and he abandons his role as Spider-Man, just when an evil genius decides to rid the world of Spider-Man. At the same time, he has to worry about his former best pal gunning for him, and MJ getting engaged to an astronaut. All in all, a trying time for Spidey...

Ian Douglas: Spidey delivers the goods again... there is a decent plot, complex heroes and villians, plenty of action and even three romances... what more could you want? :-)

On the down side, it does seem a bit slow at times, but I'm not sure what they could have cut to speed it up.

While watching it, I recognised the Class in the script, so looked up the writer, Alvin Sargent. He's had a string of top movies over the years, including Unfaithful, Anywhere but Here, Ordinary People, and Paper Moon. He even had a small acting role in the 1953 Pearl Harbor blockbuster, From Here to Eternity.
