Your friendly neighbourhood 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 instalments, 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. set 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 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). His strange new suit giving him a newfound sense of power as it gradually overpowers his personality, Peter 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.

The well established visuals are good but the romantic episodes just get silly. JK Simmons and James Cromwell appear too infrequently.

If you like the spider-man movies this one is intresting to sit through but is kinda the same as the last two.

What happened? The first two were so enjoyable, and then this piece of junk. How could such a promising sequel as Spider Man 2 have such a terrible follow-up? No wonder Maguire quit the series. 4/10

Was ok the first two where much better but it was still enjoyable to watch

By far the worst of the series. Where Spiderman/Parker evolved in the other two movies, this time he is just an annoying, unintelligent git who appears to deserve all his troubles. Almost every scene... Read more

Spider-Man 3 looks really stunning in Blu-ray. The special effects are dazzling. But the story has a whole bunch of really arbitrary complications, and often the special effects are not story-driven... Read more

Initially I had watched this film in the theatres. I had later emerged somewhat disappointed and disheartened by this third foray into what was one of my favourite superhero celluloid adaptations.... Read more

Found this to the most boring Spiderman movie, no plot, bad script and really bad effects. Pure rubbish.

A continuation from the other two movies. A good movie, but was slow during the middle and the picked up towards the end. The story line was quite good with a variety of characters - good and evil.
