With the romance behind him, Toby Mcguire's Peter Parker has the world at their knees, begging for his heroics...and not surprising at all, Parker knows it. Bearing a new attitude towards his alter-ego, Parker has become a bit of a showboat, enjoying the attention and basking in the greatness that has become Spiderman. But all that is about to change.
Featuring a duo of villains in Sandman (Thomas Haden Church) and Venom (Topher Grace), Spiderman will have to put history to rest as he enlists the help of a friend to overcome the odds and save New York City from the catastrophic ending that has come knocking at the door.
While the cast improves drastically, the film itself is easily the worst in the series as Raimi attempts to reconstruct the formula and create a Spiderman that no one can honesty root for.
Maguire is a true-to-form asshole, though I will admit that the black suit is something worth seeing. The special effects are noticeably tighter here when compared to the first film, but not enough to warrant it a better placement. The story is a running joke, and the segment dealing with Parker's “emo” phase is something that simply can't be forgiven.
The disc is easily the least appealing of the trilogy, but if you are like me, a trilogy is meant to be owned in its entirely. An ultraviolet copy gives the disc a bit extra appeal, but honestly gives buyers little reason to repurchase the disc. If you own it, keep what you have. If you don't, think long and hard before reaching for this one on the shelf. It's a sure fire money hole.
