Movie Review: Spider-Man 3With Spider-Man movie reboot this year, we thought we'd look back at the first 3 Sony Spider-Man movies. Let's continue with...

Spider-Man 3 (2007)

They say the third time is a charm, well not always. When the previews for Spider-Man 3 surfaced, I remember thinking, this film is going to have a lot going on, and it did. In fact, that was the problem there was just too much going on here.  Peter’s struggle with his dark side and 3 different villains made the movie feel a bit jerky. Dealing with several themes like; friendship, revenge, envy and forgiveness may have been too much for one movie. Sandman being tied to Uncle Ben’s death, was not exactly a good choice either.

Still, I don’t consider Spider-Man 3 completely unwatchable. I thought the moments between Peter and Harry, both as friends and enemies were enjoyable. I liked the rivalry between Peter and Eddie Brock as competing photographers and the effects were great again. Sadly those moments were far and few and couldn’t make up for the convoluted storyline that pulled this movie down.  

Things I kind of liked about the film:

•The fact that despite JJJ’s best attempts to ruin Spidey’s reputation, the citizens of the “Big Apple” see him as a hero. Take that Flattop!

•The scenes when Peter is using the Symbiote during his confrontations with the Sandman and Harry Osborne. It was fun seeing Spider-Man unrestrained by his principles.

the thing that ruined spiderman 3 for me was the casting of venom, that actor should have been hired to play peter parker from the off set instead of toby (cardboard cut out) maguire. and he had no where near the intimidation factor you expect from venom.
that and my general hatred of shoe-horning an extra villan into the movie, both characters were easily well deserving of thier own leading villan slots rather than having to share screen time with the other... multiple villans sounds like a good idea on paper but i dont think it's been pulled off on screen yet. and yes i dont feel it worked in the dark knight either... harvey dent was fine but they should have saved two face for the next one rather than screwing up banes appearence

2 things I hated most about Spidey 3:

-Venom was rarely Venom. It seemed the actor's agent successfully lobbied to have his face and real voice poking out of the symbiote every other second.

-The ending was a mess. Peter and Harry Osborn teamed up to fight the villains and save a damsel in distress which was great. But when they got their Peter was incapacitated while Osborn was doing great on his glider. There were multiple opportunities for him to save MJ, but clearly he was put on fight duty so that Peter could save his girlfriend. The way this was portrayed felt contrived and annoying, especially since it had already been established that Harry liked her as well and would have been equally concerned about her getting hurt.

Saw the trailers of "Spider-Man 2012" and Emo-Spider-Man is how I think I'd describe him. Hope Spidey isn't too serious or dark or he wouldn't be the Spider-Man we've all come to know and love. Keep those wisecracks and one-liners coming Spidey or you'll turn into just another Batman.
