Default My Spider-Man 3 review!!!!!

I saw it this past monday at the premiere for tribeca. So, this review will be short, and there are some spoilers. Ready... This is definitely the worst one of the franchise so far. I mean harry gets amnesia, why? Who knows, I felt the movie was like lost... They make shit up as they go along. Nothing serious happens in this film. I mean one major character dies. But, other than that. I was actually bored. yeah the effects are nice but who cares. So, you have three villians in the film: Sandman, New Goblin, and Venom. Who do you think shines the most? Well, I will say this. I loved what James Franco does with the goblin, a lot more menacing that the previous, and Sandman is just a guy in the wrong place and time. Finally, Venom. I had absolutely no problem with How Topher did his version of Venom. I had a problem with Sam Raimi's direction and development of the character. There was none. I mean the symbiote goo lands next to peter who happens to be in central park at the same time chilling with MJ. What are the odds. So, blah, blah, blah. He gets the new suit, acts like borat and does stupid dance numbers that are so out of character, then brock gets it. Swings around the city for two seconds, gets hit by sandman who thinks he is spider-man, saids I am not but we can team up to kill him. They jump to the final battle and Topher shines for like 10 minutes, then thats it, They end the fight. What the hell?? Thats it. I wasnt expecting much from Venom (I expected him to be in it for a little bit) but, he gets 10 minutes because the filmmakers couldnt wait to establish the character for part 4. Why? I dont get it, you put venom in it but for only 10 min. Darth Maul get more screen time than venom. Actually Darth Maul gets to actually do something amazing, while venom is just there. Sandman flies away. Yes, people Sandman can fly like a sandstorm or something. Did they watch Naruto when they did the effects for Sandman. I mean even Gaara got a better deal. Sandman is a giant monster for most of the action scenes. Why? I want to see more comic-book style fights scenes of sandman. So, the best fight scenes are all the New Goblin fights. The aerial battle and the one in the mansion, and the first encounter with Sandman on the truck. Venom was okay, nothing amazing. But he team-up with Sandman. No real one on one spidey vs. venom fight. The rest of the movie is just bad characterization, and non-sensical scenes. Alot of the pacing of this movie was off. None of the villians actually shine, well, New Goblin does, but other than that. It was no where near as good as the 2nd one. Plus I am still confused and angry about the amnesia. Couldnt he pretend and fake it, then mess with MJ. No Harry gets amnesia, then his dad is like dude. Remember you need to kill spider-man. What the hell? Why did he have amnesia in the movie? I dont understand the point of that. To give the other baddies more screentime or something. Faking it would of made more sense. Instead Spider-man 3 was like watching an Aaron Spelling Soap.

I hope this review is helping without giving away the plot. Cause there was none. Spoiler:
HTML Code:
"Venom dies, but you cant tell if he is really dead"
I am just trying to justify that they can bring him back. Oh, I actually didnt want Venom in the movie, But giving him 10 minutes then ending the fight the way they did. Really messed up and pointless. Next time, dont use major villians from the comics for 10 minutes if you have no real reason to put them in it. Oh, money, so venom fans can get to see him.

Yea I was pretty disappointed too that venom had barely any screen time. Peter only gets the costume halfway through the movie, even though the goo appears right in the beginning. And then venom only appears in the last fourth of the movie. I also thought it was stupid how the goo came to earth..

The effects were amazing though, no doubt. And yea I agree that the best fight scenes were between spidey and the goblin. The fight with spidey and venom was kinda lacklustre. Hopefully they bring venom back in the fourth one cuz doc connors still has some of it in his lab. Maybe we'll see the lizard too?

There was also a lot of drama in this movie. Too much maybe. I think they really wanted to bring in a lot of factors to make peter go insane, so they had MJ and Sandman (who's actually his uncle's real killer).

It was still really entertaining though. It got a bit slow, but it'd pick up. They did sandman really well, and venom was amazing too. It was nice to see him on the screen. Go watch this!

i thought this would have been a flop, even though its been getting real good reviews over here the fact that venom is barely in it. and the only reason i would have watched it was to see venom.

The Movie's too long, too many storylines and they cut back to slow.I mean we see the symbiot attach to Parker's bike and it takes another hour to go back to the symbiot.Same shit with Sandman : he turns into mud after the fight and again 45 minutes before we see what happens to him...it's just a drag.The action is good tho' IMO.And as much I looked forward to Peter Parker's darker side I thought James Frank stole the show.The way he portrayed Harry Osborne's hate, then love, hate and love again was stunning IMO.He really made Osborne look psychotic ( the scene in the bar when Pete walks out and looks back to see Harry smiling like a psycho... very good )

i came back from watchin spiderman jus now.....well i dident think it was that bad......the storyline was a bit messy and all over the place, (and its quite annoying when peter becomes a "bad ass", why does he have to slap on masscara, and don a camp hairstyle?....its past me), the action was cool, sandman was aight no real purpose for him though, franco did play the goblin pretty well, and venom totally dissapointed me, everthing about the character was so off the original venom it hurt...other then that it was a moderatly entertaining watch!
