Sam Raimi United States, 2007

HKFanatic's rating of the film Spider-Man 3

Pre-release marketing had fans geared up for a dark retelling of the beloved symbiote storyline. As it turns out, Sam Raimi was just having too much fun with the Spider-Man franchise and decided to turn in what is arguably his most playful and soap opera-like entry in the series. "SM3" has more in common with its predecessors than most give it credit for, though the script is full of silly contrivances like amnesia.
