Spiderman 3 - Movie Review

Spiderman 3 - Movie Review

spiderman 3 spideman three spidey movie review film synopsis india japan australia russia germany france italy brazil uae saudi hongkong singapore sam raimi 4 good venom sandmanThis afternoon, I managed to catch Spiderman 3 at PVR Rivoil in New Delhi, India. I had'nt booked my tickets in advance and to my dismay, I found the theater housefull (all tickets were sold). As we stood around wondering what to do, a tout approached me selling tickets in black. I dealt with him and purchased tickets that were priced at Rs. 125 for Rs. 200. I could not bargain much as the movie was about to start, but every buck spent was well worth it as the movie was fantastic! Here is my movie review of Spiderman 3.

This movie has a bit of everything - comedy, action, romance, drama, special effects, music and dance. The mix was simply too good.

The opening credits were well designed and had snapshots of famous scenes from the previous two Spiderman flicks. The movie starts with Peter Parker saying how wonderful life has been - crime is under control, he's getting straight A's and his love life with Mary Jane rocks. Later on, all hell breaks loose - Harry tries to get even for his fathers death, enter Sandman - a burglar with a sick daughter who is Uncle Ben's real killer, Mary Jane loses her Broadway job, Topher Grace is gunning for Spiderman's job at the Daily Bugle, a black spidery oily thing from a meteorite attaches itself to Spidey's suit and makes him evil, Mary Jane accuses Spidey of having an affair with a blonde model classmate in his science class and later kisses Harry who has lost his memory and lastly the black oily slick overpowers Topher Grace and turns him into an evil character called Venom.

The script of Spiderman 3 was fresh and interesting. Special effects were awesome especially the creation of Sandman and Spiderman's fights over the buildings. Character development was rich. I loved Tobey McGuire's facial expressions. They were so funny, I laughed throughout the movie. I liked his new look and dance steps after he gets possessed by the evil slime and wears the black spidey suit under his clothes. The only negative point of the movie was the shaky 'NYPD Blue' camerawork which was used in a scene where cops were chasing Sandman onto a truck. It made me dizzy and I felt like throwing up.

I had heard from early movie reviews that Spiderman 3 was supposed to be about Peter Parker proposing to Mary Jane. However, this did not happen even though Spiderman tried so hard. The best part of the movie was the message it tried to convey -"It is better to forgive than to take revenge." Unlike most Hollywood movies that end with brutal violence, Spiderman forgives Sandman for killing his uncle in the end.

There is plenty of scope to create a Spiderman 4. With Sam Raimi at the helm I am sure it will be even better than the first three installments. I left the cinema knowing that I had got more than my money's worth. A totally 'paisa vasool' film !

So, how did you like my movie review of Spiderman 3 ? Are you planning to watch Spiderman 3 ?

  13. Comic book character trying to make it into hollywood blockbuster. I never spent a dollor to watch I or II and neither will to watch III. I like movies that show reality, not fiction. And making the sequels benefits the actors only as every sequel they hike their price. Of the I and II i saw, II was nothing like I.

  16. The dance scene with Peter Parker after he got out of the clothing shop was lame and hilarious! hahah! Well, I actually preferred the previous 1 and 2. But this one was pretty good too. I can't wait for Spidey 4.

  17. This is just a good Spider-man film compare wo other series. There is nothing amazing about. It is an origin story so it does move a little slow. But Spidey's origin has always been a multi step process.Although details are changed a lot, Peter's first love is Mj, the name of the wrestler is changed, the webs are organic etc., the script mostly understood the characters. There is a lot of development to them. They are all well-defined. Although this is probably the least dramatic of the spider films, it doesn't have any fun with itself. When Peter enters the suit, he is supposed to be a wise-cracking, fun loving guy. He doesn't change at all. He just mumbles and mopes around. Tobey Maigure gives a wooden performance as Peter Parker/ Spider-man. That is my only real complaint.
