As the Goblin and Sandman and whatnot multiply and start whizzing about, the proceedings in this grand hodgepodge are so disordered that it would be no surprise were a Nazg? wing into the scene, perhaps ridden by Dr. Zaius.

If you're presold on it, you're likely to forgive the film's flaws -- or at least try to. If not, you'll rarely have been so glad to see the ending credits finally start.

Spider-Man 3 is three, maybe four movies clumsily crammed into one.

It would be more suited as a Fantastic Four sequel.

Even though Tobey Maguire does self-regarding jackass pretty well, he lacks a comedian's light touch.

Seventy-five minutes into it, I check my watch and groaned, realizing from the preview that we haven't even introduced all the story lines yet...sloppy, heart-rendingly annoying, with scenes of professional embarrassment

Given the enormous $258,000,000 estimated budget for this movie, you'd think somebody would have given a moment's consideration to the script.

Spidey is really a one-trick pony whose trick we saw plenty of in the first installment.
May 4, 2007
There's much too much goo over our hero's moral decline and sudden redemption.
May 4, 2007
A hollow shell of a saga devoid of both thrilling action and rousing passion.
May 4, 2007
Magnificent 1st act, but flounders substantially for almost an entire hour. Loose ends begin to meet before a rather formulaic tie up. Does not outperform the first two films.

... Watching Spider-Man 3, as my hopes took on the taste of ashes in my mouth, I felt the sad, gloomy pall that falls across any piece of entertainment when passionate innovation is replaced by profitable repetition.

The first film in the series I'd choose to describe as "sloppy," and given the money and talent behind these flicks, that's one serious disappointment.
May 4, 2007
Entertaining in parts, but there's no denying that this is the weakest of the three.
May 4, 2007
After spinning two wonderful superhero yarns, Raimi and his collaborators appear to be running low on the webbing of inspiration.
May 4, 2007
After two epic successes that deserved their success, the latest installment swings between intense action sequences and unaccountably flat dramatic interludes.
May 4, 2007
More is not better, even if it costs a reported $250 million. A good adventure story is better. A strong, well-examined villain is better. Lean and a little meaner is better.
May 4, 2007
One has to consider that the film's problems -- and they are numerous -- may be the product of the franchise's runaway popularity.
May 4, 2007
I liked that last Spider-Man so much that I walked into 3 will a full head of residual good will. But after 2 1/2 hours of empty summer movie, my supply was pretty much exhausted.
May 4, 2007
All in all, the fun has simply gone out of it.
