Sam Raimi does a competent job on Spider-Man 3, but the franchise is getting a trifle tired.

The topper is Bruce Campbell's appearance as a French waiter. Campbell, who worked with Raimi in the early Evil Dead days, is hilarious as a snotty waiter whose help Peter enlists for a "perfect" romantic evening.

Pick two storylines, maybe, with one main villain. (I vote for Sandman, since the daughter angle is heart-tugging and complicates Spidey's moral code.)

Spider-Man 3 is an 'almost' success...it 'almost' has us convinced that this trilogy will transcend its blockbuster necessities to mean something more - either as art, precedent, or simply a great way to spend some time at the Cineplex.

As the Goblin and Sandman and whatnot multiply and start whizzing about, the proceedings in this grand hodgepodge are so disordered that it would be no surprise were a Nazg? wing into the scene, perhaps ridden by Dr. Zaius.

If you're presold on it, you're likely to forgive the film's flaws -- or at least try to. If not, you'll rarely have been so glad to see the ending credits finally start.

Let's just say it's my third-favorite Spider-Man movie.

Spider-Man 3 is three, maybe four movies clumsily crammed into one.

Despite having a storyline scattering in too many directions, Spider-Man 3 is a visually stunning and entertaining movie that upholds the immensely popular series.

It would be more suited as a Fantastic Four sequel.

It leaves you with the feeling that the allure, the intensity of the excitement, the repeatable satisfactions are... petering out.

It seems likely that few viewers will walk away from the movie flat-out disappointed.

Even though Tobey Maguire does self-regarding jackass pretty well, he lacks a comedian's light touch.

All the plot of a 6-issue comic book story arc cleanly edited into a 2-hour and 20-minute movie.

Seventy-five minutes into it, I check my watch and groaned, realizing from the preview that we haven't even introduced all the story lines yet...sloppy, heart-rendingly annoying, with scenes of professional embarrassment

The performances are top notch and the film, which gets off to a bang and ever lets up, is a great tribute to a great subject told by a master storyteller.

Despite all its excesses, all the hangers-on and nepotism, it is also entertaining in its own overwrought way.

Given the enormous $258,000,000 estimated budget for this movie, you'd think somebody would have given a moment's consideration to the script.

Too many characters is not the problem with this film. Raimi actually juggles everyone fairly well. It's the expectation game. We expect Spiderman 2 level excellence and we get Spiderman 1.5. Everything is just a little off, or takes a step back.
