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.

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.

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.

It's hard to complain of having too much going on, and the film is certainly extremely well crafted, but it's too ambitious and never quite meets its goals.

The result is fairly impressive but ultimately busy and wearying.

Another third installment, another arrested adolescent gone wild

Sam Raimi and company should have ... made a movie and not an f/x tapas plate.

You know that the third Spider-Man had to be bigger. The third movie in a franchise goes for broke. And Spider-Man 3 is bigger, if not better. It's overdone, overlong, and overplotted. It's all over the place. This does not mean Spider-Man 3

At 141 minutes, this supe-opera is seriously overextended, with four distinct subplots and way too much hand-wringing over things like the heroine's singing career.

Although Spiderman 3 is the weakest of the trilogy, it's still good enough to be a member of the club.

It is like a buffet. You look at the cast and trailers and you just start drooling over all the options. But they just overdid it, stuffing you with filler, and the juicy part of the film didn't start until it was halfway through.

The third Spider_Man film is a bit like a web that's been hanging in a dusty corner for years: it's so weighted down with sticky bits and pieces of past detritus that it's in danger of being ripped apart by the new prey.
April 10, 2008
An everything-plus-the-kitchen-sink production that thrives on its boundless energy and the sheer audacity of its vision.

Spider-Man 3 is so burdened by the need to outshine its predecessors that it sinks beneath the weight of its own extravagant excesses.

Different in all the right ways-- a complex, unpredictable attempt at giving its audience a lot to chew on. Pardon those of us who will take a flawed opus over bloated unoriginality.

Too many villains, too many pale plot strands, too many romantic misunderstandings, too many conversations, too many street crowds looking high into the air and shouting "oooh!" this way, then swiveling and shouting "aaah!" that way.
