Storyline

The adventures of freelance photographer Peter Parker, who, after being bitten by a radioactive spider, discovered he had gained superpowers, such as super-strength and agility and the ability to climb sheer walls and ceilings. After inventing a super-sticky web serum, he donned a red-and-black costume, and began fighting crime as the superhero Spider-Man. During the day, Parker worked for the Daily Bugle and skinflint editor J. Jonah Jameson. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Trivia

Unlike wall-climbing scenes on Batman (1966)(the only previous show to use this) many shots of Spider-Man climbing buildings were done live in downtown New York, with invisible wires. See more »

Goofs

When Peter is climbing around his Aunt May's house, it's obvious he's climbing on a giant picture of the house, because in scenes where he climbs down poles, his hands don't grip them. See more »

This is one awesome movie
22 May 2001 | by (Chincoteague, VA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the coolest movies I've ever seen. So what if the special effects aren't that great, or if the origin doesn't stick to the comics. Nicholas Hammond does really well as the wall-crawler. The rest of the cast does good too. The fights are awesome and so are the stunts. This is definitely a must see for any Spidey fan, like me. I give this film a 10 out of 10.
