Spider-Man 3
Is there such a thing as too many bad guys?

Spider-Man 3

Plot
Peter Parker (Maguire) is happily in love with Mary Jane Watson (Dunst). But he comes under attack from escaped convict Flint Marko, AKA the Sandman (Church); former best friend Harry Osborn (Franco), now the deranged New Goblin; and at the Daily Bugle, where ace snapper Eddie Brock (Topher Grace) threatens his job. Worst of all is a black symbiotic goo that affixes itself to Peter’s spider-suit and changes his personality. Can Spidey survive the venom within?


Verdict
Still smart, still exciting and still action-packed. It’s just a shame to note that, after promising greatness, all Spider-Man 3 delivers is satisfaction.
