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.

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.

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.

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

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.

An everything-plus-the-kitchen-sink production that thrives on its boundless energy and the sheer audacity of its vision.

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.

Kids will be dazzled, but the story falls short of No. 2.

Another fine installment in this very fun and exciting comic book superhero movie series.

There were more subplots meringued together than a single film can eat. With a twinge more fluff whipped in, this could have easily been Spider-Man 4, too.

It ends the trilogy not with a bang but neither with a whimper.

It's been a fine if bumpy ride with Raimi down this corridor of Marvel Comics history, even if I'd love to see him working on something cheap and scrappily funny again.

There are one too many teary redemptions, one too many airborne rescues and, finally, one too many climaxes. But we'll forgive Mr. Raimi his excesses.

Spider-Man 3 is impressive even in light of the fact that its unwieldy ambition often does more harm than good.

A successful bit of thoughtful escapism that balances the sensory thrills of the number one with the more serious thoughts of number two.
