A very Disappointing movie and the worst of the trilogy after the greatness and masterpiece that was Spider-Man 2. A few things are good like the action is ramped up and the birth of sandman scene is revolutionary as no word is said. However, we got 3 villains(4 if you include the black suit on peter), the plot/tone doesn't make sense, and Venom was WASTED! If you like this movie, that's great. I just can't understand most of it.
Toby Maguire sounds like a pedophile whenever spoke softly! You could tell that he stopped giving a damn, and decided to just mail in his performance as Peter Parker! Gwen Stacy is shoehorned into this film and was given nothing to do! Topher Grace is a joke in this movie! Too many characters, insulting plot revelations, with Kirsten Dunst always needing to be saved! Bottom line, A FRANCHISE FAILURE!!
WTF happened here! Now it just got stupid! Spiderman emo really! Venom barely got any screen time which pissed me because he is one of my favorite supervillains/antiheros! It felt messy and annoying at times. The action scenes though are fun as hell, but it feels like a rushed sequel to me! NEED MORE DAMN VENOM!! and not the whiney ass bastard that played him!!
Has too many characters that don't fit together and has a slow pace but it still is a fun film and brings out a good message. I expected a lot more from this film and it wasn't received well. This is a good film but not a great film.
Considering Sam Raimi has made some of the best Spider-Man movies ever made, I don't know where he went wrong on this one. It starts with the over use of villains, and pretty bad villains at that too. The only thing this movie had going for it was Sandman, and they ruined that too. And don't even get me started on the emo dance scenes. This is by far the worst Spider-Man film made to this date.
Spider-Man 3 was a dissapointng movie for sure. Especially coming off the best Spider-Man movie so far. But I think if you get rid of Emo Peter, Get rid of Venom. Get rid of Sandman killing uncle ben. And Peter crying a lot...It is actually a decent movie. The action is great, THE CGI holds up. The characters growth throughout 1-3 is great also. Sandman is the best he's ever been. So it isn't terrible people. Relax.
There's fun to be had with this final installment and a promising story. Unfortunately, it's muddled in boring sub-plots and new characters that shouldn't belong. Here's an idea: keep the gripping theme of revenge between Spidey, Sand-Man and The Hobgoblin! Ditch emo Peter, those God awful dance numbers, Eddie Brock, Gwen Stacy, and the forced love triangles!
