I’ve just got back from watching Spider-Man 3 and I’m reminded why I didn’t like the first two. Sure, the action sequences are good, but it seems like most of the film is spent listening to people whining and moralising. For the most part, the film takes itself far too seriously. There are some more light hearted (cringe-worthy) scenes, but most of the non-action scenes are just plain depressing. If you liked the first two I think you’ll love this one. If not, give it a wide birth.
One thing of note in the film was Bryce Dallas Howard. It wasn’t a great part for her, and I think I prefer her with red hair, but her presence did add some interest for me.
