Here comes Spidey!Posted: May 1, 2007
For the first time in my life, we’ve got to watch a movie on the first day it was shown. And I’m not disappointed that I went and watched Spiderman 3 at the theater.
We arrived at SM Cinema at SM Valenzuela around 10:30 am as the stores have just opened by then. We were suprised that people have already lined up at the movie ticket house as if there’s a shortage of tickets.
Luckily, we were still able to get great seats, Thank God, as the cinemas don’t begin showing the films at the same time. We noticed that in the four cinemas of SM Valenzuela, three of them shows Spiderman 3.
The movie began by introducing the main cast and crew. The unique part of it is that it flashes all what happened for the last two movies.
I’ll not be writing about how the story line of the movie. You should watch the movie, I urge you, or you could be just contented on reading the synopsis on other sites.
My review is, Spiderman 3 is the best of all the three movies. The making is just great. You could not distinguish anymore where is the pure graphic begin and where the good old film making begins. Toby Mcguire as Peter Parker is just great. He protrayed the darkness of Spiderman perfectly. I also like James Franco as Harry Osborn. You could really see the change in his face from a person who felt he got freed (He bumped his head while fighting with Peter) to a madman when he regains his memories.
As a comic book reader, the movie adaptation is not at all bad. The design of Venom, Sandman, Black Spiderman and Green Goblin are just fantastic. Though there are a lot of alterations (Sandman is somewhat flying?) its not bad at all.
What I really like about Spiderman movies and I think that separates them from other super hero movies is the “moral lesson”. Uncle Ben, Peter Parker’s uncle, leaves a simple saying “With great power comes great responsibility” which so dammed true.
