This was definitely the worst Spider-Man movie yet out of the trilogy. That does not mean that this was a bad movie at all. It was just a little overwhelming that there were way too many villains overlapping in the movie. Even though the movie is like 2 hours and 20 minutes, it still doesn’t give enough time to Sandman and Venom. Venom is actually hardly in the movie. Sandman has a good story behind him, but the whole story with Uncle Ben just doesn’t quite work that well. Harry steals this movie away as he is by far the coolest character in the movie. He has the best fight scenes and it just helps a lot that this whole fight between Peter and Harry has been building ever since the first movie. The conclusion to this movie is actually quite sad considering that really none of the characters get what they want, and it seems that the director somewhat wanted to end the Spider-Man franchise with this movie, but we all know that due to its box office success, a Spider-Man 4 is coming. The comedy is still there just like from the first two movies, but somehow this one just doesn’t flow as well as the other two. I had very big expectations for this movie, and sadly it did not deliver as well as I taught it would.
Overall: This movie is still definitely worth your time; just get your brain ready for some overwhelming material.
Score: 7 out of 10
