I have enjoyed the first two Spider-man flicks, and always catch the newest comic related movies on opening night. I own the first two movies on DVD, and personally believe that the first Spider-man movie, is still the best comic book movie ever made. I am hopeful that someone will top it someday.
I can honestly say that Spider-man does not top the original. Was it good? Absolutely! And at 2 hours and 20 minutes long, I felt like I really go my moneys worth. Spider-man 3 is not without its problems, although small ones. It seems to have lost the same feel as the original two movies. In Spider-man and Spider-man 2, you felt a connection to the characters. In Spider-man 3, you lose that connection somewhat.
There is so much happening in this story that it tends to pull you in a bunch of different directions, and as a result, it loses the feel of the first two movies. With that being said, your favorite cast of characters all return in Spiderman-3, Peter Parker, Mary Jane, Aunt May, Harry Osbourne, J. Jonah Jameson, Dr. Connors all return from from the first two movies. Gwen Stacy, Eddie Brock and Flint Marko were added to Spiderman-3 cast and were for the most part, handled pretty well.
The special effects behind the latest Spider-man villians, Sandman and Venom were excellent, and the sequences with both of these characters needs to be experienced on the big screen. It is some amazing stuff that you need to see for your self. (pun not intended)
As a whole Spider-man 3 was very good, but maybe didn’t quite live up to my expectations (which were huge) but I liked it enough that I will probably go catch it again, and I will certainly pick it up on DVD when it arrives later this year.
If you are a fan of these movies, or action movies in general, you need to go check this movie out. This movie has it all, drama, action, comedy and even some horrific moments. It’s worth the price of a movie ticket!
