Movie review: Spiderman 3

One of the biggest movie of 2007 is finally out! I saw Spiderman 3 in Imax at the Cinéma Banque Scotia Montréal (formerly the Paramount). I really liked it. It's full of action, a good dose of humor and an interesting story. There are also more 'tender' moments, but they were a little bit ruined by some of the spectators around me which made fun of them. I hope this does not happen to you. Most special effects are great, but some Spiderman shots looked a little weird, with his movements not quite natural.

As can be seen in the trailer, something dark gets to Peter Parker and he gets a little dark himself. There are references to the previous movies, but you'll still be able to follow the story if you have not seen them. The opening credits do start with images from the first two movies, but they are more 'reminders' then 'flashbacks', so don't count on them to catch up on the story if you have not seen these movies.

The game "spot Stan Lee" is much easier this time. Unlike the first two times, we get to cleary see him this time and he even have a few lines. Another bigger part is also given to Bruce Campbell ,with a very funny role as a French Maitre D'.

So, if you liked the first two movies, you will not want to miss this one!
