Everyone's friendly neighborhood Spider-Man swoops to DVD in this widescreen special edition of the highly energized sequel from 20th Century Fox. With exquisite extras and spectacular picture and sound, this two-disc is a worthy buy for just about everyone. First off is the technical angle, in which this disc truly shines. Presented in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio, the image is full of brilliant hues and fine details that are sure to bring your superhero dreams to life as you watch it. Additionally, the 5.1 Dolby Digital sound is an absorbing home-theater experience that's been meticulously created for this disc, and it does not disappoint. On the extras front, the fun starts with two different commentaries that are packed with anecdotes and stories from the production. The first track includes two separate recording sessions -- one from director Sam Raimi and Spidey himself, Tobey Maguire, and the other with Marvel producer-extraordinaire Avi Arad and co-producer Grant Curtis. This track is full of fun banter between the director and star, while the other two give good detail on the hows and whys of the moviemaking process. For more in-depth tech-talk, check out the technical commentary, headed by a few other sliced-together sessions that include effects-maestros John Dykstra and Steve Johnson, among others. The track is especially insightful when you begin to realize just how many of the effects were split between practical mechanical effects and CGI. Also included on the first disc is a blooper reel, a music video by Train, movie previews, web featurettes from the film's website, and a "Spidey Sense 2" trivia track that is stuffed with enough facts on the comic and the movie that it's almost overwhelming. Disc two contains the bulk of the extras, starting with the "Making the Amazing" 12-part documentary. This whopping two-hour making-of is one of the best in-depth and entertaining looks at a film that has graced the DVD world. After a bit of your usual PR-type talk in the beginning about the first film, this feature then dives head first into all of the separate departments as they pieced the movie together; this is highly recommended viewing for anyone who enjoys this type of stuff. Three featurettes can also be found on this second disc, all of which hold up the same quality as well. The highlight of the three would have to be the "Ock-Umentary" 20-minute special, which takes the viewer step-by-step through how the filmmakers were able to bring Doc Ock to life, from the pre-production process through the on-set puppeteering that set the stage for all of the CGI polishes later on. Other bonus features on the disc include a multi-angle feature that delves into a few effects-heavy sequences in the film, with other areas dedicated to Activision's exceptional Spider-Man 2 video game. Finally, comic artist Alex Ross has been given a gallery all his own that showcases his stunning paintings featured in the opening credit sequence. Also available in fullscreen, Superbit, and a Collector's DVD Gift Set, this release is a fantastic buy and a perfect gift for any fan of the film. In perfect double-dip fashion, Sony has plans to release a Spider-Man 2.5 as well, featuring extended sequences created solely for the DVD under Raimi's supervision. Until that comes out, there's plenty to love on this release, so don't be afraid to wait for the second release -- unless you like to torture yourself and miss out on a whole lot of great stuff.

I think that "Spider-Man 2" was one of the greatest films of all-time and was also one of my favorite films of all-time. I have seen and enjoyed all of the "Spider-Man" films of the first Spider-Man trilogy several times and I also think that "Spider-Man 2" had a lot of entertaining and enjoyable action, mystery, suspense, horror and drama and a really great and amazing cast and personal storylines.
I've never been a huge fan of these Spiderman movies but I bought this blu ray because I was curious about the quality of the 4K Master. I am glad I bought it because it is a very cinematic very high quality transfer. With this being mastered from a 4K source there is no reason for them to try to falsely sharpen or falsely 'enhance' any aspect, and they don't tinker with it in any way, rightfully so...and since they don't tinker with it and they leave the entire 50GB disc for just the movie alone to play as brilliantly as possible, you get a naturally beautiful cinematicly filmic picture. This is in my opinion well worth buying for the quality of the picture.
This review is from Spider-Man 2 [Includes Digital Copy] [UltraViolet] [Blu-ray] [Eng/Fre] 
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
The masterpiece finally gets the Hi Def treatment it so rightly deserves! You get the theatrical release and the extended edition you can’t ask for more then that!
First this movies tone will appeal to all ages.
The direction of this movie is too tell spideys
story but is not dark yet not boring at all And to especially to have fun.
The train scene where he loses his mask too, is one of
Kristen Dunst is lovely as Mary Jane.
Unlike The Amazing SpiderMan this version is a lot more humble
like he should be.
If you want Spider-Man the original Spider-Man film trilogy is the one.
This is one of my favourite films and now I get to see it in 4K Mastered! Definitely recommend but it's important to note that this is "mastered in 4K" on BD and that this is not a 4K film on BD. You must have a BD Player that has the capability of playing back xv.YCC color, a 4K UHDTV and the cables to get the full benefit of the expanded color! This is very good in the series and I'm glad they continued in this storyline!
