Crawling with Villians

movie review

'Spider-Man 3' is chock-full of bad guys, big effects and emotional calamities, but it ends up making its hero seem too small

Review B-

May 03, 2007|By Michael Sragow | Michael Sragow,Sun Movie Critic

After conquering Doc Ock and the Green Goblin in the first two films, and fighting the New Goblin and that "human sandpile" the Sandman in the first hour of this film, a beleaguered Spider-Man hauls himself to a perch high over Manhattan and asks, wearily, "Where do all these guys come from?"

It's the biggest laugh line in the movie. But before long audiences are asking, "Where do all these guys come from? And why?"

Spider-Man 3 (Sony) Starring Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco, Thomas Haden Church, Topher Grace, Bryce Dallas Howard. Directed by Sam Raimi. Rated PG-13. Time 140 minutes.
