The wow factor works overtime with state-of-the-art effects sequences that often are as beautiful as they are astonishing.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Solidly entertaining and possesses dazzling special effects, but it falls short of the near-perfection of the Spidey sequel.

Spider-Man 3 has terrific moments, but after the danger and majesty and romantic brio of "Spider-Man 2," those adrenalized rooftop ballets...

The Third Time's Not Quite the Charm

By cwalton
The third in the Spidey series has its moments, but overall, there's something missing. I liked the new villains. Thomas Haden Church brings some genuine emotion to his conflicted Sandman. Topher...

Spiderman 3

By TGIF
The bootleg version is really good from the UK! I guarantee the 2 hour movie will be worth your while! Wait till the end of the movie after the credits for the secret scene. There's a spoof of The...

Nuff Said!

Perfect Movie!

By BlackSpidey
Wow. what can I say about this movie other than the fact that it is AMAZING! Sandman is awesome, New Goblin is Awesome and Venom is Awesome. The fight scenes are great and it has many laughs as well....

Must SEE Spiderman 3!

By jonimartin2004
I went to the premiere in NYC. From the very first scenes it was action packed it had a great plot, it was humerous, and it taught a lesson. This is Sam Raimi's best work yet. I loved the first two...

Spider-man 3

By Capn Savy
I was completely disgusted with what the Director did to this movie. This movie, out of all three, had the most potential. Venom, a beloved Spider-man villain, was played down and worthless. The new...

Truly an enjoyable movie
