Movie review – Spiderman 3
Fair warning: I have enabled the moderation of comments for this specific posting.
Well, as a superhero fan, I could hardly wait to see Spiderman 3. I wouldn’t want to either spoil you or bother you with details, but the movie is packed with action sequences, some romance, some broken relationships (friendships and almost-engagements) and an ending that may seem underwhelming to some, but if it had to be that way, I am glad Sam Raimi was the director. He brought the movie to a close with relative ease, and left us craving more Spidey movies.
I have to say that I’ve read several reviews of the movie, with a varied spectrum of responses. Some people have hailed it as brilliant and others seem to hate it. There is one actor that really stands out throughout the movie: James Franco. He manages to look broody and vengeful at the beginning, then sweet, warm and caring later and then hateful and insane (and that’s as much as I’m going to tell you because the movie is very well worth watching). I had never seen Franco display this broad range of emotions and he made some of the movie’s best scenes.
If you are a hard-core Spidey fan, beware: there are some substantive changes to the Spiderman storyline that you should forgive. But the movie is really easy to watch.
