Jan (Age 12): ★★★★★

"Spiderman is fighting what could possibly be the greatest battle of his life. The enemies; venom and sandman were the best marvel villains I have seen so far. I think this film sums up the Spiderman trilogy for me; a troubled guy with spider powers fights between his two lives, Spiderman and Peter Parker, while trying to keep his relationship with MJ alive. Peter's constant disagreement with Harry Osborne (his best friend) may finally get resolved... The different phases of Peter were cool, I think I prefer Peter as Spiderman. He acts completely differently as Spiderman than Peter, this is a good thing yet sometimes confusing, considering Peter is not as adventurous and daring as Spiderman.

Overall a great way to finish the Spiderman trilogy, I recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of the new MCU."

There's more Spider-Man in the Sam Raimi trilogy and then everyone shows back up in the MCU. There's a new Venom in Venom and for more sci-fi villains you can't beat Darth Vader!
