Ok, the moment of truth.
Yesterday i've seen SM3 in Milano.
I waited this movie for loooong time and I was afraid to get deluded.
imho, this movie is not on the same level than the first 2 chapters.
The main problem is waayy too many things happening in 153 mins.
I mean, what worked in the previous two was that the story was single-minded and clear: 1 single saga from the spider-man past (1: the origins + goblin, 2: doctor octopus) + character development (1: power/responsability, 2: relationship w mj).
In this we have:
- goblin 2
- venom / saga of the alien costume
- sandman
- triangle with gwen stacy

The movie is too long, too convoluted, to crowded and some part boring.

I believe Sam should have resisted more against Sony/Arad and not putting venom in this movie.
Really, the big story in it (goblin 2 and sandman) could go perfectly and better along w/out venom.

I'm going to see it again...
