Spider Man 2

Who knew a movie based on a comic book could be so ripe with sensitivity? The flashy, exciting visuals are to be expected, and very much appreciated by both kids and adults alike! Action, comedy, drama...Spider Man 2 has it all, and does it well.

What is pleasantly surprising about this sequel to the blockbuster of 2002 is its exploration of the concept of personal destiny and identity that is likely to resound in the hearts of viewers of all ages. Tobey McGuire plays Peter Parker, who is a college student struggling with the juggling of his "regular" life and the demands of his other identity, Spider Man. His duties as the superhero are also getting in the way of his life with love interest, Mary Jane (played by Kirsten Dunst).

And, of course, Spider-Man 2 isn't only about an identity crisis. The superhero faces a challenging mission to stop the villainous efforts of Dr. Otto Octavius, nicknamed Dr. Octopus.

coverThis exciting movie just might be enough to convince kids to do some extra reading this summer. Whether they read the book before or after they see the movie, Spider-Man 2 by Peter David will be an enjoyable read. This one is appropriate reading level for older children and adults. cover

For younger kids, a 48-page book entitled Spider-Man 2: The Movie Storybook (Spider-Man) (at right) is available. It's a cute way to relive the movie and features wonderful photos peppered throughout the story.

coverFor even younger Spider-Man fans, who also happen to own the LeapPad, there's an educational Leap Pad book, First Grade LeapPad Book: Spider-Man. Budding readers follow the story of Peter Parker from the very beginning. This is a good way for young children to get acquainted with the superhero's beginnings, and at the same time, strengthen reading skills, including reading comprehension, phonics, and compound words. The book is narrated by Stan Lee, and of course children interact with the software's pages using the special LeapPad stylus pen.

 

coverSpider Man 2 The Movie is available in computer and video game format for CD-ROM, GameCube, XBox, and Playstation 2. The games are graphics-rich and action-packed in the video game versions. Children "take on" Dr. Octopus himself, as well as assorted other villains, and fight as many crimes as they can as they patrol the streets of Manhattan. Besides re-living various locations and situations from the movie, players meet up with other Marvel comic characters. If you have a video game console, we recommend getting the game for it instead of the PC version, which plays differently (it's similar, but limited).

For more information, user reviews, or to buy: Spider-Man: The Movie 2 (GameCube), Spider-Man: The Movie 2 (XBox), Spider-Man: The Movie 2 (PS2).

And, if all this web-slinging action is too intense for younger fans of the superhero, there's Spiderman 2 Activity Center designed for children ages 4-8, featuring learning activities revolving around Spider Man 2 story lines.
