    Anything good that the first half of the film achieves is immediately undone by the infamous "Emo Spidey" montage. Anything good that comes after it you simply miss because you just keep reliving that monstrosity.

    everything that is right might be great but the problem is that everything that is wrong seems worst; not as strong as the first two films but with so many loose ends to tie and the unexplainable need to have as many villains as you can get this film ends up complicated things way too much.

    Like the X-Men series, this is where things go wrong for Sam Raimi and one of the questions remaining is just how much of that is really down to Raimi himself? Spider-Man 3 is not a calamity no, as it is it is a well made film from a technical point of view and from an acting point of view. It's failings come down, fundamentally, to story and characters; the story doesn't work and there are too many characters. The…

    I found a lot to enjoy in the previous two instalments of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man franchise. Sure they had their problems but overall they made for good entertainment. The third and final film of the trilogy however is crippled by its overeagerness to make everything bigger and better. It is overstuffed with characters that should have been cut and scenes that should have been left on the cutting room floor. 'Spider-Man 3' is a glaring black mark against Sam Raimi's…

    While watching this, I did at least reflect on how it probably had the best final showdown of the trilogy. The rest of the film however, still feels like it was made as one big joke that everyone but the paying audience was in on. Seriously, you do not make anything that even comes close to resembling this with the good intentions of making a quality trilogy closer for a much-loved superhero franchise.

    I share an odd relationship with this film. It was the first superhero film I saw in cinema, and really did kick-start my interest in superhero films in the first place.

    However, I was much younger when I had seen this film. Now, it really does have some problems.

    I will say that the first half is as strong as any of the other films. Yet, it completely falls apart in the second half.

    Tobey Maguire can not be cool.…

    It's not as bad as everybody says it is, the only thing I really hate is how they wasted Venom

    Still better than The Amazing Spider-Man, just on the virtue of being more interestingly bad. Despite being a massive step down from the near-perfect Spider-Man 2, this one has always been a guilty pleasure of mine.

    It's a shame that Raimi rounded out his run on Spidey with such a terribly written and incoherent trilogy capper, but fuck, it makes me laugh. A one star movie that scores five stars for cringey, rewatchable bonkers-ness.

    I'm giving it a lower rating than Smurfs 2. 'Nuff said, indeed.

    Emo Parker still makes this enjoyable. It's not as bad as everyone says it is and has a lot of stuff I like, but still, it's not Citizen Kane...

    Fair play to Raimi for trying to delve into the symbiote story but he gets it completely wrong.

    From the whole Mary-Jane/Gwen love triangle with Peter, the explanation of Uncle Ben's death and, of course, the fucking dreadful and rushed Venom, there's a whole lot to hate about this one. Oh, and Harry Osborn's pitiful Goblin...

    If there's one thing, thought, that totally sums up Raimi's final Spider-Man, it's that god-awful jazz club scene that follows the hilarious swag in…
