Storyline

An updated version of the classic animated adventure series. After being bitten by a radioactive spider, young Peter Parker finds that he now has spider-like super powers. Hoping to use his new-found abiilties for wealth and fame, he lets his ego blind him to the needs of others, and indirectly causes the death of his uncle Ben when he refuses to help a police officer catch a fleeing criminal. Humbled by his failure, he resolves to use his talents for fighting crime, and becomes the superhero Spider-Man. While he fights assorted super-villains, Peter also must balance his personal life, including his girlfriend Mary Jane, his job as a photographer at the Daily Bugle, and a an editor who has convinced himself that Spider-man is a criminal that has to be brought down.

Promising, but lacking.
11 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

It was good to see a rendition of Spider-Man with more focus on his friendship with MJ, Harry Osborne and others at the ESU, but the praise sadly ends here.

Aside from that, I must admit I didn't get super engaged in the series. I didn't find Neil Patrick Harris' voice of Spider-Man especially engaging, but oddly enough, I felt he did a good job as Peter Parker. The other voice actors did their jobs well.

Many of the villainous characters I normally love felt underdeveloped and forgettable like Kingpin and Kraven The Hunter. Lizard and Electro were good and had some great action scenes.

The CGI is normally not my cup of tea and I mostly felt the same way about it in this, but things like jumping off a building and swinging through the city looked great. When it was dark it usually looked great, too. That is a personal thing, if you like it, great.

The two part episode, "Mind Games", was the climax of the show with intelligent writing, the best villains in the series and really good suspense, but the fact that the series first became exciting in the end is not a good sign.

Perhaps if more seasons were added it could have developed into more, but overall I'm glad I gave this series a chance.
