Loved it!
24 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

Although the live action series came before my time, I do remember watching reruns as a child on both the USA network and the Sci-Fi Channel with their "Spider-Mania" and "Mighty Marvel Marathon" respectively. The latter was hosted by none other than Stan "The Man" Lee himself! I loved this show then, and although I haven't seen it in years, I am glad to say nothing has changed, I still love it!

Nicholas Hammond was brilliantly cast as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. I think he is definitely the best actor to have played the part, and that includes Tobey Maguire! He is very likable, and looks and acts just the way the character should. It is quite obvious to me that he was the inspiration for the look of Peter Parker on the "Spider-Man" animated series from the 1990s (which I also grew up on).

I just watched this movie, and so many great memories of running around dressed in my very own Spider-Man costume, on my own make believe adventures came flooding back.

It was great to see actual fight scenes that didn't involve CGI, same with the moments where Spider-Man is wall-crawling, or web slinging. They had it right, keep it real! The stunts were amazing, considering someone had to be hoisted high above the city streets while simulating Spidey's ability to climb walls! I highly recommend both this movie and "The Amazing Spider-Man" series to any Spider-Man fan, or comic book fans in general. It's just a lot of fun!
