This final chapter of the Sam Raimi directed Spider-Man trilogy is a friendly neighborhood disappointment. This film suffers from plain bad storytelling, which is unusual even for a comic book film, and some poor casting, namely in Topher Grace as Venom/Eddie Brock. X-Men 3, at least, had some redeeming characteristics to it. Now, a complete reboot of the franchise is being planned without Raimi or star Tobey Maguire. The prospects are too scary to consider.
