Spider-Man 3 is a good Spidey flick, but unlike its predecessors, it doesn't have the Sam Raimi touch, that made us like the first two Spider-Man films in the first place. It was directed by him, but maybe it lost its touch because it was personally written by the director himself, and he made a convoluted script. Even though it's not the worse writing in the world, the story all connects in a way that made it feel rushed; the formula is in the film, but he made it in a way rushes and also ruins the character development, which unlike obviously the first Spider-Man films that did it so well. In conclusion, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man is a mayor downgrade from the forst two Spider-Man films. It has the visually stunning set-pieces and as always great acting from mostly everyone, but the rushed aspect made it feel not part of the Spider-Man franchise we knew, and most of us, loved. It still has a heart, which is a great theme in a super-hero film, but as I said, the rushed character development eventually overcomes it, and without it, i'm very sure a better sequel would have been produced.
