The third film has a little too much of everything. Apart from three new villains (New Goblin, Sandman and Venom) Spider-Man and Peter Parker become their own worst enemies when a symbiote from outer space gives a boost to their dark sides. The characters are well drawn and played, as always, but the action scenes sadly return to what they were in the first part, that is, fast-paced computer animation without any sense of gravity. However, there are some enjoyable moments in this long and sprawling comic book movie which once again ends with the same damsel in distress.
