DVDPlot Summary: Peter Parker’s (Maguire) life has finally started to work out. Everything is going his way until he comes in contact with a strange black substance. This substance has given him more power than he could ever imagine, but it may be too much. Now he has to find a way to get rid of this new substance, as well as save the rest of his life from the destruction it caused.

Review: To say this movie was a disappointment would be a false statement, but I wouldn’t completely disagree. I was never much of a fan of the Spider-Man movies (probably because I grew up with the cartoon series). I liked the first a little, the second one made up for the first, but this one didn’t do it for me. It wasn’t bad, but there was a lot of added elements that were just plain unnecessary. The action (when it was there) was good, the story was much more in-depth than the first two, but I think they added too much emotional attachment to everything. A little emotional attachment between the hero and the villain is always good for the plot, but when they put too much in it just gets old. If you were a hardcore fan of the first two, this one should be right up there for you. However, if you are sort of impartial towards the whole series, missing it wouldn’t be the end of the world.
