      Spider-Man 3 Reviews

      Prev Next

      While some of the film is a bit goofy in retrospect, it’s still a consummate vision from a director who just understood the character better than anyone else has.

      What could have been if the studio didn't stick its inky black nose in Raimi's business...

      Full Review | Dec 17, 2021

      Raimi, perhaps pressured by the fan base or studio executives, has tried to cram too much into this third - and presumably last - chapter of this hugely popular property.

      Runs about 20-30 minutes too long and, at times, falls victim to its visual and action excesses.

      ...remarkable achievements toward an unremarkable end...

      Full Review | Sep 2, 2020

      Spider-Man 3 is almost an embarrassment of riches, with villains and subplots almost sufficient to fuel a fourth installment.

      Despite its shortcomings, Spider-Man 3 still manages to do enough to get by, even if it's apparent the franchise is starting to feel rusty and in need of a serious overhaul.

      Sam Raimi has once again spun his own web of masterful movie-making with Spider-Man 3. And let me tell you, this is one web you want to be caught in.

      If the colorful characters of the previous Spider-Man films were painted with a master's brush... then Spider-Man 3 was scrawled in by a 3-year-old with a crayon.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Jun 6, 2019

      A forced, altogether unsatisfying conclusion to a series that had hit some pretty satisfying creative highs during its short lifespan.

      Full Review | Mar 22, 2019

      Suffering from many of the recurrent problems of blockbuster sequels, Spider-Man 3 is an engaging if ultimately disappointing finale.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Nov 3, 2018

      The film is phenomenally poorly structured, with too many characters necessitating their own little arcs and epiphanies. A sure sign Raimi and Maguire were right to bow out.

      The solid foundation established in Spider-Man 2 is traded away for sand... man sand-and everyone sinks into it up to their necks.

      The other quite remarkable thing about Spider-Man 3 is the amount of dramatic ambiguity that was shot through the whole movie. Everyone in it has a rival of some sort and almost everyone takes a turn at being a jerk or a villain or worse.

      Spider-Man 3 probably would have been better as two focused 80-minute films. The ambitious, overstuffed, and complicated 139-minute one that we have isn't as well-proportioned as its predecessor, but it's full of canny insights and bits that ring true.

      Bored. Bored witless.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Jul 13, 2015

      Spider-Man 3 is the longest film in the series so far, and perhaps it tries to pack in rather too much. But it's intelligently directed by Sam Raimi and, with all those eye-popping set pieces, it's certainly never boring.

      The breeziness that was so refreshing in the other episodes has been largely replaced by the kind of misery and moping that we can get from any old superhero.

      Full Review | Jul 13, 2015

      This is at least two movies crammed into one, and the seams are splitting; three villains, two love interests and a partridge in a pear tree means that Spider-Man has to fight for attention in his own film.

      Spiderman 3 is best described as a Mexican soap opera with mind-blowing special effects.
