Problems...
The whole movie was basically orgasmo fanservice to a particular villain (Venom) which I'm guessing from its execution was a hoped-for spin-off movie franchise of its own. This forced feeding and cramming in of this badly conceived and executed character was more than evident to anyone who saw the film.

3 villains for #3 was also just forced, bad and tacky.
There was the whole build-up of Curt Connors in two previous movies into the expected Lizard. WTF? Even thiose who didn't know the Lizard story were thinking "what is so special about this recurring Dr. character? Is he going to do something? It seems like he's important, but guess not."

Finishing off the Goblin story was alright in theory and worked ok in practice. Sandman was completely wasted, weak material and an utter distraction at best. Without Venom emo Parker wouldn't exist.
Venom was just a badbadbadbad idea. The entire plot was a convoluted mess designed to hightlight Venom, the villain.

Essentially instead of a tight story which engaged viewers, that movie felt and looked like it was made by Trekkian fanfilm fanboy types who were rooting and salivating for the villain instead of the hero. I would even go so far as to say that it felt as if the studio or powers that be would have been happy with the removal of Parker and Spiderman altogether.

What did I think of the movie? Never saw it but actually had it on my DVR for several weeks. But eventually I needed the space and erased it. I could have erased other things but obviously Spiderman 3 held no interest.

I wouldn't mind that, if we could get a decent Venom movie. Venom is cool enough to deserve his own movie and not be mixed up in a convoluted mess of characters.

S4 had it's flaws, but overall was a good film.
