What makes the tentacles tick... or something like that
9 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is one of three featurettes on the Special Edition DVD of Spider-Man 2, and you get one guess as to what film it deals with. It consists of interviews, behind the scenes footage, clips of the movie, panels and frames from the comics, tests and early designs, etc. They go into the depth and motivation of the character of Doctor Octopus. Everyone here has genuinely interesting things to say, and this gives good insight into the well-known, developed villain. You get to see crew doing a cast of Molina's face and consider various looks for the extra four arms of Octavius, as well as talk about the effects that put them up there on the silver screen, in the rather believable way that they managed to. This is well-edited and has good pacing, and fits a good amount of information into 22 minutes. It isn't a (m)ockumentary, as the silly pun title on the cover the discs come in might have you thinking. That's fine, I'm only putting that in here to avoid anyone watching it expecting that, and possibly then leaving a negative review on here afterwards. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about the subject. 7/10
