Spider-Man 3 DVD Review

Spider-Man 3 DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on May 03, 2007
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Spider-Man swings back into theaters with the third installment of the Spidey series. Is this flick arachno-rific or does it seriously bite?

Spider-Man 3 has swung onto DVD shelves! Find out if this installment is arachnopho-rific or if it seriously bites. We've got the lowdown on the latest Spidey flick!

Spider-Man 3 - Back in Black

Peter Parker has gotten over his super- shyness, and is starting to seriously enjoy the adoration and fame that comes with being "special." He no longer has to hide his true identity from his GF Mary Jane, and all is going swell. So swell, in fact, that Peter plans to pop the question to MJ, but she has other plans...

Spider-Man 3 - It Came From Above

A gooey, black symbiote from space lands conveniently near Peter and MJ as they bask in the moonlight one evening, and ends up hopping a ride home on the back of Peter's scooter. The black goo may look as harmless as an oil stain, but it will soon change Spider-Man so that he's barely recognizable as his former self!

Spider-Man 3 - Enter Sandman

While Spidey is getting all cocky in his new symbiote-infected black suit, a new bad guy hits town. Sandman seems more confused than evil and his sinister past may be linked to Peter Parker's. Meanwhile, Mary Jane is getting pretty tired of Peter's new attitude, which leads to serious problems for the super-couple. Finally, Spidey decides to fight back against the controlling suit, but it might be too late. Oh, and hang on a second - here comes Topher Grace from That '70s Show as the least-scary bad guy ever!

Spider-Man 3 - DVD Features

The Spider-Man 3 DVD is available in several versions for your viewing pleasure. You can grab the single disc, the two-disc Special Edition, the two-disc Blu-Ray set, or the three-disc pack that includes the first two Spider-Man flicks! It comes packed with special features like a behind-the-scenes look into Sandman, Goblin and Venom, funny outtakes and a Snow Patrol music video!

Spider-Man 3 - Bottom Line

Spider-Man 3 has all the daring special-effects that you'd expect from a movie that cost a reported $250 million to make. However, the plot is pretty muddled, the bad guys are fairly weak and Peter Parker and Mary Jane seem to spend the whole movie crying big, fake, blubbery tears. If you've seen the first two movies, you'll probably want to catch this flick to see a few loose ends get wrapped up. Otherwise, it doesn't really matter if you watch the movie or just go to bed in your Spider-Man PJs - either way, you'll end up doing some serious snoozing.

Spider-Man 3 Rating:3

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
