Not perfect, but pretty good
12 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I guess I was expecting to be blown away, either because this was written by the same man who writes the great "Ultimate Spider-Man" comic series or because I waited so long for this to come out.

The story for the most part was good. Interestingly enough, it directly follows the film and we hear a few references when Harry Osbourn talks about how Spider-Man killed his father. But the epic scale of the film is toned down now to "villian of the week" formula. The first episode featured a villian right out of "Smallville," a taunted young man who (rather quickly and conveniently) falls upon super-powers that he uses to get revenge. The second features an assasain using a mystic sword who is hired to take out Spider-Man. Just like "Smallville," these first episodes showed the youth of the series while at the same time showing its great future potential.

One thing that caught me off-guard was the animation itself. It's one the few series that's completely computer generated while using a special filter to make if look as if it were hand-drawn. It works well when its done right, especially seeing Spider-Man swinging through buildings and climbing up walls. But as with a lot of computer-generated series, the animators can go a little overboard with the camera and make it constantly moving in awkward directions. I just wanted the thing to stay still! Also, some of it seemed rushed as I noticed objects that were supposed to be round had huge jagged edges.

Overall, the series shows a lot of promise. I only hope that MTV will commit to the time the series needs to become great. It will be interesting to see if it leads in to the next movie, although I doubt Sam Rami will be tied down the events in this series.

The previous Spider-Man (and X-men) animated series on Fox Kids felt like it was trying to cram over 30 years of comic book storylines into handful of tv episodes, but I see none of that here. It is what it is, and I'll be eager to see where it goes.
