Spider-Man 3 had absolutely nothing going for it. Every villain is written, directed and handled atrociously with no direction whatsoever. Full of lazy plot contrivances, ridiculous character actions, terrible dialogue, superfluous supporting characters, sloppy, CGI-overloaded action scenes, and everything delivered at a blunt, one-dimensional tone that completely takes you out of the film. Most agree that this is a pure disaster of storytelling.

Get over it. Did Marvel kill your parents or something?

Yeah... Okay. You didn't have to wait 7 years to post on Flickchart the flaws in detail of an already cult-status movie which is universally known as bad. I'm with Spoon here, why do you hate Marvel so much?

Hey is squaremaster on drugs or what.Yeah we all know that Spidy 3 isn't a good movie,but you need not to have pin point those already known facts.
Oh you are pointing them on 1/23/2014 , so what where you doing before that hybernating ??.
Through away your obsession or jelousy or what ever it is against marvel.
I am with average and mystic here too.

I don't see the problem with commenting on a movie years after it was released. Everyone on FlickChart does it. And FlickChart wasn't even around in 2007 so he can only comment on the film when he can. Oh well, these comments were made 3-4 years ago making this one irrelevant...

It's not as bad as everyone says it is except for emo Toby

Not as bad as its rep. Cut out emo Peter Parker and Venom (as Sam Raimi originally intended), and you're left with a decent flick.

Okay, I love this movie and it's now in my top 100! It's flawed but I will give you 6 reasons on why I love it.

1. It's more adult than the first two. Minus the dancing, it honestly tones down the wackiness of the first two. It has great themes of forgiving, resilience and how fame can corrupt you. The Peter and MJ relationship is now not the awkward 'will they/won't they' stuff. It feels real. It addresses the fact it's a terrible relationship. And I love the role reversal that MJ is now living a shitty life and Peter can't be there for her because he is so happy for himself - he can't connect with MJ but just throw empty phases at her such as 'get yourself right back on the horse'. And as MJ can't also tell Peter about her problems, so she goes straight to Harry. Peter responds to all this when he gets the black suit by showing up to the jazz club, a job MJ is embarrassed of, with Gwen and later (I'm skipping the obvious) actually hitting MJ which never fails to shock me. Speaking of which;

2. Peter's character arc. Our hero, the 'great power comes great responsibility' has now lost his empathy for others because he is filled with ego and pride. Then the black suit takes control and, forget about the dancing, he immediately has no issue killing Sandman and tells Aunt May who he suspects would be revived (which is messed up when you remember the yard scene in the previous movie which implies May may know Peter's secret)

3. Sandman. While one of my big issues is the ending to Sandman's arc (seriously, after he flies away; where does he go? What happens to his daughter? And if he doesn't want to hurt anyone; why does he team up with Venom to cause all that destruction in the end?), the setup is pretty great. I even have no issue with him killing Uncle Ben. Ben is still dead, only difference is how it affects Peter and brings Peter back to reality after being filled with the pride he had in the first act.

4. Eddie Brock. Unpopular opinion but I LOVE Eddie and Topher Grace. He's the perfect parallel of what Peter could've been. Like Peter, he wants to marry a girl but who he only had one date with. Like Peter, he wants a job at the Bugle but only after being hired for a week. And like Peter, the symbiote attaches itself to him. But unlike Peter, he becomes fully corrupted by it. As if it's a drug that Peter recovered from and realised who he was hurting by allowing it but Eddie just fully accepted.

5. Peter and Harry teaming up and the final scene. What can I say apart from how these two moments are fantastic and the perfect ending to the two arcs that had been setup since the first film?!

6. And finally, it's the final film in this series. The Raimi Spider-Man trilogy is my favourite comic book trilogy. I love this cast, I love how living and breathing this world feels, I love the action set pieces. But most of all, despite the trilogy having cheesy and at times stupid moments, every decision is filled with heart and passion. I'm still someone who dreams about Tobey returning to the role and now with all the news around the next MCU Spider-Man, that dream may become a reality!

I don't apologise for the lengthy post.

Almost forgot to mention, (6.1 I guess) I have no issue with the pacing or the film having 3 villains and the number of subplots. It actually balances all the characters and themes very well without ever dragging which all builds to the exciting, if not flawed, climax!

It’s a very mixed bag, but I think I like it overall. Even though I love the first two more, I still think this has it’s moments.

People are way too harsh on this movie imho. Yes, it's clearly a noticeable drop in quality compared to the first two movies, but it's still nowhere near terrible + it actually has some of the best MJ moments in the entire trilogy

The absolute worst Spider-Man movie of all time. Might also be one of the worst storytelling in a movie

I've never understood what it is exactly people hate about this movie. Yes, it has too many villains, but that's about the only major flaw I can see in it tbh. Oh, and everyone bitching about the "emo dancing" is almost tragically missing the point of that scene.

Raimi, perhaps pressured by the fan base or studio executives, has tried to cram too much into this third movie.
