Superhero movie, directed by Sam Rami, first two in the series were great, well the third installment must be good, WRONG! Now before I start this movie isn't as bad as people say it is, it is on the bad side, but people have said it's one of the worst movies they have seen, I for one don't think that. Is the movie bad, yes, but its not the worst.
What makes this movie bad is that it is full of wasteful scenes, and could have been cut down about 20 minutes making it a 2 hour movie like the first two movies. One scene in particular was between Harry and Peter when they are fist fighting, seriously what was the point of that scene, it took up tons of screen time that we could have had something else like VENOM, who also was wasted. Venom is in this movie for 10 minutes, the most popular Spider-Man villain and he is in it for 10 minutes. That's like putting the Joker in a Batman movie but putting him in the last 10 minutes, its a waste. Another scene is the dance in the Jazz club, seriously, that has nothing to do with Spider-Man or Venom or Sandman, etc. It even has nothing to do with Peter Parker, I was sitting there thinking...why is this even in the movie it was a waste.
Another thing that bugged me was Topher Grace and Eddie Brock. Let me explain, I thought Topher did a fine job as Eddie Brock, he really fit the role, but when he was Venom there was no Venom voice, you know the one we are so use to in the TV Show, the only time they used it was when Spider-Man attacked him. Why bring in the villain and not even use his iconic voice, I don't know what they were thinking.
I also thought it was missing that punch the first two movies had. It had some sort of force behind it, and you felt for the characters and cared about them. Even the action was very entertaining, now the action in this was alright, but some of it looked way too much like a video game,especially the first time we see the New Goblin it looked like they were in a video game the picture just didn't look right, but I must say the ending battle was defiantly a great sequence. But like I said you felt for the characters in the first two movies, in this one I did not care at all about the love triangle between Harry, MJ and Peter, I just did not care. Plus Gwen Stacy was a waste, and a waste of talent in Bryce Dallas Howard.
I did however care about The Sandman, I thought he was very sentimental and defiantly had my attention throughout, and the last scene between Harry. MJ and Peter was very emotional, plus the montage of Peter acting "cool" was very funny. So there were some things that worked.
So all in all it's not as bad as people said it was, but as you can see there are a few things that did not work in this movie and not much that actually worked. I did not feel I wasted time watching it though, it is just a very disappointing movie, with a lot of waste.
