When I first saw this movie back in 2007, I thought it was really good, a tad too long, but good nevertheless.
Seven years later and several viewings later, I realise now that Raimi took way too much on with this, and should have concentrated on just the feud between him and Harry, bit throwing in his uncles killer, relationship problems, Gwen Stacey, and Venom, of course.
It becomes bloated very quickly, and is at least twenty minutes too long. The whole Parker turning into a goth/Simon Le Bon wannabe is pointless and not part of this film.
Church and Grace are good in this movie, but hey are sidelined, as is many characters in this film.
There are signs of brilliance though, the first meeting with Harry and Spiderman is awe-inspiring and one of the best set pieces of the series, and Franco really shines in this, totally watchable whenever he is on screen.
The same cannot be said for the main character. When you start to find Parker annoying, you know that the film is in trouble.
It's not a bad movie, just really overlong, bloated, and at times, quite depressing that it's gone downhill like this, so rapidly.
The big disappointment of summer 2007.
