*Continuation of my part 1 review*
A large segment of this movie has Peter without his powers and this is what makes the movie so great because it shows the responsibilities that Peter can avoid by not being Spider-man but it also gives him an advantage in his humanized lifestyle.
This all begins when Peter starts having problems after encountering very emotional situations in which he's lacking the ability to be there for the people in his life because of how busy he is being Spider-Man. This gets worse and the people close to him start giving up on him and thinking that Peter is "Lazy", so Peter does to only thing that comes to his mind and visits a Doctor about his problems.
Peter talks to the Doctor and tells him "In my dream i'm Spider-Man but i'm loosing my powers, I'm climbing a wall but I keep falling". The Doctor responds in such an appropriate way and even catches on to the fact that Peter is Spider-Man, this isn't exactly shown but it's heavily hinted towards. Peter goes home and has a dream sequence in which he sees Uncle Ben and the most famous quote is spoken again "With great power comes great responsibility". Except this time Peter denies it and refuses to be a hero anymore, he then delivers another brilliant quote "I'm Spider-Man no more". This is not only a reference to a famous comic by the same name but it's when Peter quits being Spider-Man for a long duration of the movie.
That's just one of the amazing scenes in the film and there's still multiple other scenes I could analyze but I would be here for hours. The CGI for the movie seems to hold up pretty well, maybe in a few scenes it looks outdated but it's barely noticeable and the good plot easily overshadowed the CGI.
One last thing I want to talk about before concluding this review is Dr Octopus (Also known as Dr Octavius). Dr Octopus is easily the best villian from the Marvel universe and before he becomes a "Bad guy" he is such a humanized character and is a actually a genius trying to save society.
Spider-Man 2: 9.5/10 .
