Peter Parker is going through a major identity crisis. Burned out from being Spider-Man, he decides to shelve his superhero alter ego, which leaves the city suffering in the wake of carnage left by the evil Doc Ock. In the meantime, Parker still can't act on his feelings for Mary Jane Watson, a girl he's loved since childhood.
The will-they-won't-they, toing and froing between Pete and Mary gets old in this. It's almost romance as a primary genre. Mary gets pissed off at Pete when she sends mixed messages. Some scenes are cringe-worthy such as Mary Jane talking to Pete while he is holding a wall over her. Move!!! There was another key one as well that isn't coming to me at the moment. Doctor Octopus makes for some good action scenes but can't save it. The whole Harry Osborn getting revenge on Spider-Man sub-plot doesn't come to much either. 2-2.5
