Spider-Man 3 Review and Resources: Check out Jonathan's 2 cents on the film and enjoy a free Bible study guide from Fuller Seminary's Craig Detweiler
This week is a big week for movie fans as the much anticipated Spider-Man 3 hits the
Two great resources: Jonathan's review of the film and a free Bible study guide from Fuller
Seminary's Craig Detweiler.
Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense action violence.
Directed by Sam Raimi (Spider-Man 1 and 2, The Evil Dead, A Simple Plan, For Love of the
Starring Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Thomas Haden Church, Topher Grace...
Jonathan's Rating: Theatre Worthy
Spidey III probably doesn't equal its predecessors... but it was good fun.
I admit, I really struggled with what to score this film. In all honesty, it probably doesn't
deserve a score of "Theatre Worthy." It's probably more of a "Rental." But since it's from the
Spiderman trilogy... I would go see it in the theatre. Besides, it's a fun, clean film.
In Spidey III multiple plot points intersect. The "real" killer of Peter's Uncle is
discovered. (Please!) At the same time, a gooey black blob drops from outer space and attaches
to Peter's suit (no spoiler here unless you live in a shoebox and haven't seen a preview),
slowly changing him to a dark, evil Peter Parker (for Smallville fans... think of what happens
when Clark puts on the "red ring"). Meanwhile, Peter's ex-best friend Harry Osborn (James
Franco) is still ticked about Peter killing his dad in Spidey I (yeah... you would have
thought they were through with that plot point by now). All these factors collide in Spidey
Predictability and lack of originality aside... it was still fun to watch.
