Overview

Spider-Man 3

Your friendly neighborhood web-slinger is back, only this time his sunny outlook has become partially overcast in the third chapter of director Sam Raimi's Spider-Man saga. Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and James Franco return to reprise their roles from the previous two installments, with Thomas Haden Church, Topher Grace, and Bryce Dallas Howard making their first appearances in the series as Flint Marko (aka Sandman), Eddie Brock (aka Venom), and Gwen Stacy, respectively. Peter Parker (Maguire) has finally leaned to walk the middle ground between being the superhero that his city needs and the man that Mary Jane (Dunst) loves. All is well in New York City until one night, as Peter and M.J. sit gazing at the stars, a falling comet streams across the sky and crashes into the ground close by. But this isn't any ordinary shooting star, and upon impact the mysterious space rock is split open to reveal a shape-shifting symbiote with the power to overtake anything that it comes into contact with. Later, as Harry Osborn (James Franco) acquires his late father's flying board, engineers a powerful new Goblin outfit, and takes to the sky to avenge dad's death, the mysterious space sludge infects both Peter's Spider-Man suit and ambitious street photographer Eddie Brock (Grace). Peter's strange new suit gives him a newfound sense of power as it gradually overpowers his personality, and he discovers that escaped convict Flint Marko was in fact the man responsible for the death of Uncle Ben (Cliff Robertson). Unfortunately for Peter, Marko has recently acquired the power to morph at will and quickly completes his transformation into the dreaded Sandman. As the Sandman gives in to his darkest criminal instincts and the slithering space symbiote transforms Eddie Brock into the nightmarish fanged villain known as Venom, the citizens of New York City must once again call on Spider-Man to fend off destructive forces that are far too powerful for the likes of mortal man.

Spider-Man 3 is a good movie, but as good as the first two movies, which they are excellent movie. Spider-Man 3 takes on a different turn when Peter Parker turn Spider-Man into a evil being. Not only Peter Parker have to deal with his evil ways, he must also deals with two new villains: Venom and the Sandman. Also he must deal with Harry Osborne who became the new Green Goblin, who still holds a grudge with Spider-Man after the death of his father, Norman Osborne. Then there was Mary Jane Watson, the love of his life. In order to save Mary Jane from the Venom and Sandman, Spider-Man must destroy his black suit. That's where Eddie Brock became Venom. Spider-Man 3 delivers its excellent special effects, but the movie is not as big as the first two movies.

Spiderman's Darkside. The alien costume brings out and enhances Peter's darkness, doesn't create it. This movie is when Spidey gives into darkness and nearly becomes what he swore to oppose. Only his love for Mary-Jane allows him to save himself. Even removed, the costume lives on. Peter's darkness haunted him. Peter's darkness created an evil version of Spider-Man bent on destroying the original. Venom and Spider-Man are Peter Parker's dark side and light side. This movie shows both side very well.

I wasn't suprised by anything in this movie. Some of the scenes could have played out better, and the plot was kind of dull. On top of that, it still leaves some questions unanswered. However, this movie wasn't a disappointment, and it kept me entertained.

It's triple trouble for Spider-Man in this third installment in the mega franchise. Life is good for Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire). He's got the girl, about to propose, making bucks, the good people of New York love their Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man like it's their job-yeah, everything is smooth sailing. As if. Suddenly, a mysterious new villain shows up out of nowhere: the New Goblin (though he doesn't refer to himself as such in the film). Quickly, we find out it's Harry Osborne (James Franco), Peter's once best friend out for revenge because he thinks Peter murdered his dad. One villain Peter can handle, especially since his first altercation with the suped-up Harry Osborne ends rather quickly. But no, things quickly get worse for our favorite Wallcrawler when fugitive Flint Marko (Thomas Haden Church) gets himself trapped in a molecular blaster thingy and becomes the shape-shifting Sandman. Also adding to Peter's troubles is ultra-hungry photographer Eddie Brock (Topher Grace), who wants nothing more than to make a name for himself in the newspaper business. Unbeknownst to Peter, while he and Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) are on a date in a NY park, a mysterious meteor lands from the heavens, leaking a strange black goop that follows Peter home and eventually latches onto him, transforming him into someone darker, meaner and more spider-powered than ever before. When Peter finally realizes his new black suit is slowly destroying his life and he's alienating everyone he's ever cared about, he manages to ditch the suit in a cool church belltower scene that screams Peter's search for redemption, but also Eddie Brock's search for revenge. The black goop lands on Brock, carrying a copy of Peter's spider-powers with it, transforming Eddie into the menacing Venom. It's Black Spider-Man versus three villains in this web-slinging rollercoaster ride that scratches Spider-Man fans right where they itch! The good: The spider effects keep getting better with each installment, especially in the area of you feeling like you're right there with Spider-Man zipping through the air. That scene where Gwen Stacy (Bryce Dallas Howard) falls off that building and Spidey has to cut through the air between falling debris to save her? Pure good. The story had some good twists, especially building up the suspense while we waited for the black symbiote to latch itself onto Peter. Same with Peter proposing to MJ. The whole "it not working out" thing was well done. James Franco played the villain wonderfully. I genuinely hated him after a while, the big tip of the hat being to when he fooled Peter into thinking he was his buddy again only to screw him over bigtime later on. Topher Grace was easily the best actor in the film. He was funny, cocky, yet at times you sincerely felt bad for him. The fight scenes were great. The symbiote effects for the living suit were fantastic, too. The ending with Harry Osborne-even after all he did during the film-made tears prick the corners of my eyes. The not as good: One would think a major lesson had been learned from Batman & Robin: too many characters is just plain stupid. Unfortunately, Spider-Man 3 didn't take that warning to heart. The film had way too much going on and that's what ended up hurting it in the end. There's really not much to complain about with this movie other than it feeling very rushed and cluttered. Over all, it still was a solid flick, but my

Worst of the 3, but that still means it is decent since the others were great. It feels so rushed - the villains were never fully fleshed out. I love a good romance but it seems this movie could have done without so much focus on the whole Mary Jane thing. Part of the appeal with the first movie and alot of the second movie was portraying the villains in such a way that you can understand and sympathize with them. This one kind of force-feeds the viewer with a couple of lines to explain why they are going to such extremes as to turn to crime, in order to fit the romance angle as a main focus. Just saying that it could have been a bit better.

Spider-Man 3 was the highest grossing film of 2007. So far, it was the best Spidey film, for many, it was dissappointing because Venom wasn't the main villain and the majority of those who didn't like it were Spidey comic fans. If you don't focus on that matter, you can say that this film was great. Sure, you can't force all of the people to like this or hate this, but in my opinion, the director (Raimi), the stars (Maguire, Dunst, Franco and the other cast) and the crew of the film gave their best.

The 1st Spider-Man movie was too cheesy, the 2nd is the best superhero movie of all time. This one is stuck in the middle. Sandman and Venom were awesome! New Goblin was pretty cool. Tobey Maguire could be better though, but his performance was still good. The story was good, but it was a little bit long. The musical score was freakin' awesome. J.K Simmons was hilarious, I wish he could have been in it more. Look for Stan Lee, the co-comic creator.

Rating: 62% Despite its stunning visuals and moral, Spider-Man 3 fails to meet up with its predecessors, and some viewers may even find themselves asking if they are still watching a Spider-Man flick. Still, a good summer movie, despite its many failures.

As a uber nerd for comic books I thought this movie was just plain bad. The CGI and fight scenes were cool and all but spiderman doing a song and dance.....come on. The other thing is Venmon is the best spidy adversary ever and they just rushed the plot which had nothing to do with the original story. Like I said the action scenes and cgi were awsome but the story was boring, long, and made me fall asleep.
