  1. A perfectly enjoyable sci-fi thriller.

    This was a mission that should have been aborted long ago.

    Appears headed for a deep-space rendezvous with audience indifference.
  4. 20
    Fails chiefly because it's senseless. How it even managed to bypass the straight-to-video route boggles the mind and is a speculative fiction far more engaging than any to be found onscreen.
  5. 20
    Apparently fallen victim to the transparent damage-control tactics of studios in possession of perceived stinkers.
  6. 10
    Given the tainted history of Supernova, it's difficult to figure out where to place blame for either the undernourished screenplay or the moribund action.

    I went in with rather low expectations given IMDB's rating of this movie but I was pleasantly surprised; excellent visuals, genuine characterI 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. Collapse

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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. One of the worst movies I've watched in a long time. The pacing is all over the place, only one character was remotely relate-able, and while some of the CGI is passable the practical special effects are laughably bad on any budget.

    I also feel like it's one of those movies that give the genre a bad name, the plot is essentially: ship breaks, evil guy turns up with shiny MacGuffin, tries to kill everyone, dies, ship fixed, survivors fly off into the sunset. It lacks any substance, and most of the decisions characters make have more to do with eeking out another 10 minutes of running time than solving the issues at hand..

    Spider-Man 3 is the Lawrence Of Arabia of the superhero movies world. It is epic, sprawling, magnificent, meaningful, beautiful. Anyone who 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
