  1. A perfectly enjoyable sci-fi thriller.
  2. 38
    This was a mission that should have been aborted long ago.

    The flick's ultimate flaw? For a movie about space travel, it's an awfully uninspired trek.
  4. 20
    Apparently fallen victim to the transparent damage-control tactics of studios in possession of perceived stinkers.
  5. Reviewed by: Tom Keogh
    Looks and moves like a film whose vital organs were yanked before shooting commenced.
  6. Supernova isn't so super.

    I went in with rather low expectations given IMDB's rating of this movie but I was pleasantly surprised; excellent visuals, genuine character development and conversation plus a few memorable scenes to boot make for a must-see sci-fi thriller. I sat through the entire movie with my eyes pretty much glued to the monitor and I enjoyed every minute of it. It starts off a bit slow but once it picks up, it just doesn't let go. Expand

    It's a little dry, but definitely not worthy of the unanimous dislike pointed its way. Predictable, but nice to look at. I see signs of studio interference and a mountain of "what-could-have-been's", the twenty minutes of deleted scenes on the DVD speak volumes. Expand

    I rented Star Wars III (Revenge of the Sith) and this over the weekend. After suffering through the last Star Wars, an unmitigated disaster, I actually thought better of this sorry work - at least it showed that there is flesh underneath the makeup, something George Lucas forgot years ago.

    Really bad movie. Expected higher quality but instead i get garbage. Just a waste of time and we could watch better movies. Terrible SFX, terrible voicing, terrible story, what else? Expand

    Spider-Man 3 is the Lawrence Of Arabia of the superhero movies world. It is epic, sprawling, magnificent, meaningful, beautiful. Anyone who doesn't enjoy this movie must be a pretty spoilt brat or a cynical old misery. For near on three hours it envelops you in its world and makes you CARE about the characters. How's that for a special effects laden blockbuster, a movie with characters that matter? The comedy works, the emotion works, the action works. Everything Raimi tries comes off. The set pieces are particularly astounding, ranging from an out of control crane to Spidey's numerous battles with the meaty villains on show. Like others, I think this is by far the best of the three (though I loved the first two as well). It's a modern-day classic, an enrapturing fantasy that exhibits all that's best in modern movie making. An experience not to be missed. Expand
