Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007 and must defeat a weapons dealer in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, but things are not what they seem.
Peter Parker is an unhappy man: after two years of fighting crime as Spider-Man, his life has begun to fall apart. The girl he loves is engaged to someone else, his grades are slipping, he cannot keep any of his jobs, and on top of it, the newspaper Daily Bugle is attacking him viciously, claiming that Spider-Man is a criminal. He reaches the breaking point and gives up the crime fighter's life, once and for all. But after a failed fusion experiment, eccentric and obsessive scientist Dr. Otto Octavius is transformed into super villain Doctor Octopus, Doc Ock for short, having four long tentacles as extra hands. Peter guesses it might just be time for Spider-Man to return, but would he act upon it? Written by
Doc Ock tapped Peter's phone lines. That was how he knew he'd find him at a café with Mary-Jane.
The scene with the burning building was a lot shorter.
Harry wonders if Quest, Oscorp's biggest rival, hired Spider-Man to discredit his company.
Betty Brant ensures the bum is paid more for the Spidey suit than Jameson was willing to shell out. In a scene omitted from the film, the night staff at the Bugle say that Jameson wears the suit, striking mock heroic poses when he thought no-one was watching. He even walked onto his desk, sticking paper clips to a lamp like it were webbing. Also, the DA's office want the suit to verify its the real thing, but Jameson won't hear of it.
When Peter and MJ are sitting int he café, there a lot of people around. When Doc Ock throws the car, there is no one as the car lands, but then when Doc Ock, enters the café, there a lot of people around. See more »
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. And I'm Peter Parker, and I too have a job.

Normally sequels are hugely disappointing in comparison to the original film. So it's hard to believe that they could even come close to topping this movies original, alas they do!
Picking up where the first movie starts off and introducing several new comic book regulars, we bypass the history establishing story of the original and head straight into what life is like for Peter Parker being a college student, Spiderman, and trying to hold down a job.
This time Spidey must face the likes of Doc Ock, portrayed by Alfred Molina (he's come a long way since Indiana Jones cameos) excellently. Once again they couldn't have picked a better actor to portray the villain Spiderman has to face.
Spiderman must take out Doc, save the city, save the girl, and still get good grades.
The action sequences once again are entrancing and the story is well written. Kudos once again to the actors involved and Sam Raimi on creating another hit. Looking very much forward to Spiderman 3. Another hit I'm sure if 1 & 2 are any indications.
