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 »

Quotes

Captain Barbera: Where's the money, Monahan? Where's the 5,000 big ones?
Monahan: There must have been somebody else in the car.
Captain Barbera: Wrong, Monahan. Wrong. He was a lone wolf. But a crazy lone wolf. Look at him. Driving right into a brick wall. Can you explain all this to me, please?

Good fun!
2 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

I remember renting this movie in 1984 or so. In 1998 I bought it on video. I loved watching it again. It has some cool camera work. The music score is good. I specially like the moment when the bank robbers come out of the bank. That cool 70`s sound.

This is my favorite of the three movies!

I give it 5 out of 10!

I've never had the chance to watch the TV-series, but I hope I will some day!

Long live comics!

Make mine Marvel!!
