Peter Parker is very happy, he's in love with the sensual Mary Jane Watson, his studies are going great, and America loves his alter ego, Spider-Man. But his world is quickly turned upside down as he comes under attack from Sandman, Goblin Jr and an alien substance that transforms Peter into something far darker than his super hero better self.

There is a school of thought that says that sequels are always the tricky films for directors to take on, that may be so in most genres, but for comic book adaptations, all films are tricky. By the time of director Sam Raimi releasing Spider-Man 3, he had not only shown the world that he clearly loved the Spider-Man characters, he showed that he also knew how to better the franchise with the second instalment. So really, if we are all honest here, it was going to take a monumental effort to not just only better parts one and two, but to merely make a film to sit alongside those finely crafted pictures as well! That he managed neither is no great surprise when watching it now after the dust has settled a few years later. In his over eagerness to entertain us the fans, and with studio interference that Raimi to date refuses to over elaborate on (Venom-AKA Eddie Brock-it was-ahem-requested he find room for), Raimi lost sight of the less is more policy that made the first two Spidey movies great.

When I first came out of the cinema after my original viewing, my head was chocked full of villains, not only that, but also Peter's love life struggles, it is in short, way too much for one movie. I had enjoyed myself for sure, hell! Raimi knows how to give his fans a good time, but when you break it own there are so many missed opportunities it grates substantially on the discerning movie watching fan.

This film really could've been special. But, as so many other reviewers have pointed out, its a real let-down. Why do directors always assume that more is better? The first spidey flick had its faults but it was still pretty amazing stuff and we were just glad to have a spidey flick after all the years of false starts and court battles. And the ending did just enough to whet our appetite for the next instalment.
The second one built on the success of the first and took it to the next level. Supreme casting of Alfred Molina as Doc Ock meant we had a villain that was both straight out of the comics yet believeable and another ending that left us salivating for more, turning this into a franchise that you could see would just grow and grow.
And then the inevitable. Too much, too soon. Batman Forever made the same mistake, cramming in too many characters and villains which spelt disaster and the beginning of the end for that franchise. This film could have easily survived on just Sandman and Harry as the villains and the alien symbiote could have made a brief appearance at the end, allowing for a very tempting Spidey 4, focusing on the black suit and Venom.
Ideally Raimi would pull together a director's cut collating all 3 movies and removing all the fluff and nonsense that just aren't necessary - the musical interlude and the landlord's daughter offering chocolate cake and milk (!?) in S2 and far too many instances in S3 to mention.
The franchise is by no means dead becasue of this movie but it does leave you wondering where they're going to take it next. Overall, its still a good film and the amazing effects and dedication of cast & crew just about take it across the finish line but there's no denying, every fan out there of both the films and the comics, if being totally honest, will be thinking, if only....

Torn between 2 and 3 stars for this third installment, I decided that 2 would suit my title better. I was very underwhelmed.

It seems to me that filmmakers didn't expect to do a fourth film and tried cramming everything into this one and was should have been the climax of a great trilogy became a bit of a mess. First off, the film falls into the classic trap of having too many supervillains. Much like X-Men and Batman, the film struggles to reign them in. There's Sandman, who is one of the greatest CGI creations in cinema (his "birth" is a standout scene), however the rest of the effects fail to reach that standard. Second is Harry Osborn, who has discovered his deceased Dad's arsenal and intends to finally nail Spiderman. Third is Venom, who appears very late in the film (as a result of a fourth "villain" in Peter Parker's dark side) and is a huge letdown.

Because of the "too many cooks" (or crooks) scenario, we get some pretty bad plot devices and coincidences to get them all together. At one point, in order to keep one in a holding pattern, the writer even resorts to the chiched amnesia device (!) while another pair join forces completely at random. Worse still, the films' own history is rewritten to give Sandman more relevance.

Another huge issue is the main storyline which promises a darker Parker, thanks to a handily placed meteor (when I say handily I mean lazily written) which oozes alien gunge that turns Spidey's suit black. However, Parker's decent into the depths of his soul becomes nothing more than having him steal a few cookies and push a few bouncers around, whilst strutting around like a goth version of John Travolta. Combined with the tired on-off romance with MJ and the disorientating action sequences, Spiderman 3 is pretty hard-going.

I kinda hope that they do make a fourth and this time keep it focused on a more coherant and satisfying storyline.
