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.
March 22, 2019
A forced, altogether unsatisfying conclusion to a series that had hit some pretty satisfying creative highs during its short lifespan.

Suffering from many of the recurrent problems of blockbuster sequels, Spider-Man 3 is an engaging if ultimately disappointing finale.
October 31, 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.

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.
November 3, 2012
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.
April 26, 2011
Spiderman 3 is best described as a Mexican soap opera with mind-blowing special effects.
March 30, 2011
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.
July 6, 2010
The result is fairly impressive but ultimately busy and wearying.
August 27, 2009
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
October 18, 2008
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.
October 18, 2008
Although Spiderman 3 is the weakest of the trilogy, it's still good enough to be a member of the club.
September 4, 2008
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.
