PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Peter Parker is beset with troubles in his failing personal life as he battles a brilliant scientist named Doctor Otto Octavius.
In a scene in which Peter Parker runs down an alley to become Spider-man, posters for punk band The Ataris' album "So Long, Astoria" can be seen on the walls.
She looks at me everyday. Mary Jane Watson. Oh boy! If she only knew how I felt about her. But she can never know. I made a choice once to live a life of responsibility. A life she can never be a part of. Who am I? I'm Spider-Man, given a job to do....
During the burning building scene Peter tries to open a closed door with the only trouble being that he can't open it. In reality, superhero or not, the doorknob would've burned his hand due to the incredible heat.
Alfred Molina is credited as Doc Ock and Dr. Otto Octavius, but not "Dr. Octopus", the character's official comic book name.
