Peter Parker is finally getting some respect as Spider-Man is now being looked to as a hero of the city. But all is not well in NY. A new villain arrives in the form of Flint Marko a.k.a. The Sandman. His body is entirely composed of sand which he uses to devastating effect. Not only that, but Pete is having to defend himself against a newly super powered Harry Osbourne, who has taken up his Father's Green Goblin memorabilia and is using it to exact revenge for his Father's death! And if that wasn't enough, a symbiotic space alien has taken over the Spidey suit, imbuing Spidey with more power, but heightening his aggression. At work, Pete is competing with an upstart photographer who will become (with help from the evil suit) Venom--one of Spidey's most powerful enemies!

Spider-Man 3 was directed by Sam Raimi and starred: Tobey Maguire - Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Kirsten Dunst - Mary Jane Watson, Thomas Haden Church - Sandman, James Franco - Harry Osborn, Topher Grace - Venom, Bryce Dallas Howard - Gwen Stacy, James Cromwell - Captain George Stacy, Rosemary Harris - Aunt May Parker, J.K. Simmons - J. Jonah Jameson, Dylan Baker - Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard, Elizabeth Banks - Betty Brant.

CinemaSins is played out. They stopped being funny years ago.

Still better than any version Marc Webb tries to make.
DEVLIN712 - 4/29/2014, 8:20 AM
I still like CinemaSins

WHO CARES ! How old is this movie now. Why doe's it take this long to decided whats wrong with a movie.

it's gonna end up having a higher rt score than tasm 2.
KallarkKent - 4/29/2014, 8:25 AM
Spider-Man 3 should have been a good movie. It was reported that Sam Raimi was forced to include Venom into the story so I hold Sony accountable for how this movie turned out.
Sxcory - 4/29/2014, 8:25 AM
I'm shocked its only 13 minutes long.
McNyagano - 4/29/2014, 8:26 AM
Good movie but could have been better. Not as bad as people make it out to be.
notmuchtotellreally - 4/29/2014, 8:26 AM
I laugh at the Spidey haters.
cjspade - 4/29/2014, 8:26 AM
Smoking crack, Webb's version is way better than Sam raimi crapfest.
Mrcool210 - 4/29/2014, 8:26 AM
YAY....still no actual reasons to hate the movie, expect nothing less from cinemashits

I just can't watch - refuse to invest anymore time in anything Spidey3 - It's just shockingly bad. Recently the film was £1.99 on Blu-ray - personally I think free is overpriced.
MrMartinMarvel - 4/29/2014, 8:30 AM
While still not that good, this movie gets way too much hate.
Dotanuki - 4/29/2014, 8:30 AM
Heh, nope.

GliderMan - 4/29/2014, 8:34 AM
My favorite Spider-Man.
DrunkenNukem - 4/29/2014, 8:35 AM
to think this movie came after Spiderman 2...

jeez..
IM53 - 4/29/2014, 8:35 AM
Too much crammed in this movie. Hearing the same for TASM 2. I watched the first 15 minutes,the editing is pretty shitty.

The action in the movie was great but everything else in the movie is a big load of crap! except for J. Jonah Jameson, he is the only reason i still own it. The dialog sucks, Peter's personality in the movie makes me wanna throw up. Personally i like the Amazing Spider-man better cause i think its more true to the character, With his relationships, his design, i mean people are saying they didn't like the suit, but it makes sense! it was his firs suit for god's sake! he used what he could with this second movie he is just upgrading! But back to Spider-Man 3, things weren't thought out that much, there are so many continuity errors and what not, they kill off all they're villains, sand man is the only one they haven't. But there are some good things in the movie too! I do like the venom suit and the black suit Spider-man, and Jameson, but otherwise its a really crappy movie.
IM53 - 4/29/2014, 8:36 AM
Spidey 2 is still the best IMO...
Pasto - 4/29/2014, 8:38 AM
Do my eyes deceive me? Is that really 53?
Highflyer - 4/29/2014, 8:39 AM
Wait... that was JJJ's brother?
comicchicago - 4/29/2014, 8:39 AM

Nomis - 4/29/2014, 8:41 AM

Actually, this movie is quite terrible.

Almost on par with Iron Man 3, both have some good action scenes, but the movies as a whole are just unwatchable.
ALegendaryPanda - 4/29/2014, 8:43 AM
[frick]ing TERRIBLE Spider-Man movie and one of the worst movies of all time!
Noobster - 4/29/2014, 8:43 AM
there are a lot of bad things in TASM also but it is more true to Spider-Man. He is more acrobatic, more spider like, i mean all Raimi did was web balls and that's it! and how did he even do that ? i mean in the first movie he would shoot the web really quick and it would go in a line, now all of a sudden when he does it it forms a perfect ball? but back to TASM they are setting up real nice for future films, When i read comics and watch the shows, i like it more when peter is just bullied cause he is one of the smartest, i mean tobey maguire is a total dork! i mean i even want to beat him up, he just seems so weak and pathetic.

Hate these videos. Honest trailers are so much better. Still, Spider-man 3 was a let down but had some great scenes.








Unfortunately with this film, the bad outweighs the good.
Pasto - 4/29/2014, 8:46 AM
Damn you to hell 53!
JoeMomma29 - 4/29/2014, 8:47 AM
Crappy movie and looks like I will be seeing another crappy Spider Man movie this Friday with my kids.......
samsupes - 4/29/2014, 8:48 AM
The title of this article should be changed to "everything WENT wrong with Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3"
IM53 - 4/29/2014, 8:48 AM
What's next dude? You and wacky Jacky's gonna hold hands?
GeneralZod1138 - 4/29/2014, 8:50 AM
@grif

The Blu Ray boxed set has Spider-Man 2.1
MercwithMouth - 4/29/2014, 8:51 AM
Still better than Spiderman 2... Thank god Marc Webb is here to save Spidey. Raimi's films were terrible, the only things they did well was the origin, and Gobby... The rest was garbage.
