The film had the worst criticism of the trilogy. Roger Ebert (Chicago Sun-Times) wrote: Too many villains, too many pale plot strands, too many romantic misunderstandings, too many conversations, too many street crowds looking high into the air and shouting "oooh!" this way, then swiveling and shouting "aaah!" that way.
Joe Morgenstern (Wall Street Journal) also gave the film a negative review: After two epic successes that deserved their success, the latest installment swings between intense action sequences and unaccountably flat dramatic interludes.
But, Robert Denerstein (Denver Rocky Mountain News) gave a positive review: If there's a moral to be gleaned from Spider-Man 3 -- aside from the fact that heavily promoted franchise movies tend to rake in megabucks -- it's this: Movies don't necessarily need to hit grand slams to score.
