How does Spider-Man 3 follow on the heels of its predecessor, which was widely considered the best superhero movie ever? For starters, you pick up the loose threads from that movie, then add some key elements of the Spidey comic-book mythos (including fan-favorite villain Venom), the black costume, and the characters of Gwen Stacy and her police-captain father. In the beginning, things have never looked better for Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire): He's doing well in school; his alter ego, Spider-Man, is loved and respected around New York City. And his girlfriend, Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst), has just taken a starring role in a Broadway musical. But nothing good can last for Spidey. Mary Jane's career quickly goes downhill; she's bothered by Peter's attractive new classmate, Gwen Stacy (Bryce Dallas Howard); and the new Daily Bugle photographer, Eddie Brock (Topher Grace), is trying to steal his thunder. Enter a new villain, the Sandman (Thomas Haden Church), who can transform his body into various forms and shapes of sand and who may be connected to Peter's past in an unexpected way. There's also the son of an old villain, Harry Osborne (James Franco), who unmasked Spidey in the previous movie and still has revenge on his mind. And a new black costume seems to boost Spidey's powers, but transforms mild-mannered Peter into a mean and obnoxious boor (Maguire has some fun here).
If that sounds like a lot to pack into one 140-minute movie, it is. While director Sam Raimi keeps things flowing, assisted on the screenplay by his brother Ivan and Alvin Sargent, there's a little too much going on, and it's inevitable that one of the villains (there are three or four, depending on how you count) gets significantly short-changed. Still, the cast is excellent, the effects are fantastic, and the action is fast and furious. Even if Spider-Man 3 isn't the match of Spider-Man 2, it's a worthy addition to the megamillion-dollar franchise. --David Horiuchi

It's an exciting film, lots of periods of action. The Emo Parker stage was a bit long, but the final fights made up for it. Read morePublished 22 hours ago by Amazon Customer

|Spiderman 3 Is better with full screen||
What a load of rubbish. Do you have any idea of how much of the picture you are losing for your precious fullscreen? Around 30% or 40% of the image is lost, just cropped out. Just do a goodle search on fullscreen vs widescreen to see examples of what you are missing. In the early days of DVD... Read More

I think "The Patriot" has Arabic subtitles. I remember it has 25 different languages as subtitles. You might want to check "2001 Odyssey" too.

|Is this collection ALL REGIONS or Region 1 only ???||
For Blu-ray, there are only three regions: A, B, & C. I believe Singapore belongs to region A along with North/South America, Korea, Japan and other east Asia area except China. So you are always fine if you get a BD from Amazon.com. That's why Fantastic 4 & Silver Surfer worked.
