Ok, seriously. Don't spoil yourself. It won't be as good if you do.

I'm being serious.

Last warning.

Ok, here goes.

I'm not going to give a complete review because some people love some movies that others hate. Therefore, I'll just say what was good and what wasn't.

The good:

Gwen Stacy goes on a date with Peter and looks hot. Captain Stacy appears a few times. Sexual tension between Peter and Betty and Jonah is as funny as ever. A Sandman you sort of feel for. Venom looks awesome and is in fact an alien symbiote. Connors examines it.

In addition, Harry decides to help Peter in the end as most of us thought he would. However, you really feel glad when it happens. I thought it would come off as predictable and boring but I ended up feeling relieved that they made up. Also, Harry kicks some major arse in this movie. I really hope you get to be him in the game. The Eddie and Peter rivalry was amazing as well. And the fight at the end with Venom was really cool.

There was a lot of humor and the action was great. Go see it. i really liked how they worked on MJ's character and the Pete/Harry conflict was pretty cool. I'll have to see it again before I give a complete review but I really thought it completed the series well. Also, I'm glad Pete and MJ didn't get married. They left things open, which is nice considering what happened with Betty and Gwen.

The bad:

The movie upheld the tradition of corny dialogue that wants to make me hide my face. However, at least in this movie the made it over the top such that it was actually funny. You didn't take it too seriously when Pete starts acting stupid.

Ok, one thing people will hate. Sandman did kill Uncle Ben. It was an accident and I was ok with it, but I know people will hate it. The thing, as usual, is how amazingly small the world of Spiderman is. It just happens that a meteor with a symbiotic organism falls right beside the only guy in NYC with super powers. Oh, and the other two people with super powers also know that guy. Oh, and when he decides the get rid of the costume, guess who happens to frequent the church Pete happens to be next to? Oh well, it's a movie.

The action was good, the humor was good. The guy who plays J. Jonah Jameson was terrific. Really captured the character. There were a couple of laugh out loud moments, and most of them had to do with JJJ.

But... the story was trite. The acting was below par. I've also had more than enough "MJ in distress" stuff. Ho hum. The film is guilty of "sequel-itis"--trying to just pack in more of the same instead of going for a truly different, interesting film. Overall, two stars.

The best of the series was part 2, with Doc Ock.
