Peter Parker has finally managed to strike a balance between his devotion to his love M.J. and his duties as a superhero. But there is a storm brewing on the horizon. When his suit suddenly changes, turning jet black and enhancing his powers, it transforms Peter as well, bringing out the dark, vengeful side of his personality that he struggles to control. Under the influence of the suit, Peter becomes overconfident and starts to neglect the people who care about him most. Forced to choose between the seductive power of the new suit and the compassionate hero he used to be, Peter must overcome his personal demons as two of the most feared villains yet, Sandman and Venom, gather unparalleled power and a thirst for retribution to threaten Peter and everyone he loves.

This is my favourite spider man as Toby Maguire is the original Spider man appose to the other ones. I think he was the perfect part as he was very nerdy, and I think he played a great job. I also liked Mary Jane, I think the actress who played her, Kristen Dunst, did a great job as well. This movie however number three, was not my favourite. I think the first two were very well done. This one I feel was all over the place and I didn’t know what was happening when I was 8. I liked the idea of the dark spider, but I felt they could have done more with it. 3/5 stars @EffyStonem of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library.

Spider-Man 3 is a 2007 superhero film based on the fictional Marvel Comics character Spider-Man created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. It was directed by Sam Raimi, the third installment in his series after the beloved initial two films. Sadly, due to the agenda of Sony and their overarching power as a studio, Raimi did not get to make the film he wanted to. The studio wanted to raise the stakes for the third film by cramming in an unneeded and detrimental surplus of villains. No doubt this was in an attempt to prime the franchise for future expansion. Raimi himself admitted on a podcast, “I should've just stuck with the characters and the relationships and progressed them to the next step and not tried to top the bar. I think that was my mistake." Instead of following the natural progression of a story, the narrative was forced to conform to the characters the big studio executives wanted in the film. This creates a splintered and unsatisfying plot that is hard to follow or become invested in. There is also a series of scenes in this movie that totally makes the viewer despise Peter Parker, so cringe worthy I can barely sit through them. I would not recommend watching this film unless you want your image of Spider-man to be tainted forever. 1.5/5 Stars. @Joaquin of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

The addition of Venom should have been executed better.

It was great, but so depressing.

Not enough of spidermans greatest villain venom. He should have been the main villain in this film. Well i guess thats why there making a solo venom movie. But this is still a decent movie.

I agree, the Sandman was ok, but Venom got very little screen time. Not as good as the two before it but still not to bad.
P.S. Going into a cathedral and praying for someone else to be destroyed does not work. If someone does wrong towards you, go into a cathedral (or church) and forgive that person.

This movie would have been much better if it had focused on Venom.

Peter Parker, who is loved by New York for having scared away criminals, plans to propose to Mary Jane Watson, who has just made her Broadway musical debut. While Peter and Mary Jane are on a date in Central Park watching a meteor shower on one of Peter's webs, a small meteorite crashes nearby. An extraterrestrial symbiote, which looks like black tar, attaches itself to Peter's moped. Elsewhere, escaped prisoner Flint Marko is being chased by the police. He climbs a security fence and falls into an experimental particle accelerator, which fuses his body with the surrounding sand. He finds he can shapeshift at will and becomes the Sandman. Peter's best friend, Harry Osborn, who knows Peter is Spider-Man and responsible for his father's death, attacks Peter on the way home from his Aunt May's apartment using new weapons based on his father's Green Goblin technology. In the attack, Harry injures his head on a pipe and suffers from partial amnesia (loss of short-term memory), making him forget his revenge and that Peter is Spider-Man.
