Attack of The Lizard
23 November 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this is a 70 minute feature from season one of The Spectacular Spiderman,A new animated series,focusing on the younger years of Spiderman/Peter this one,he's 16 years old and in high school.i'm not sure if this is an episode of the series or a standalone feature,i can't find an accurate listing for it may be actually under another title but on the cover it's called :Attack of the Lizard.anyway, i did like it, presents Peter Parker as very cheeky and smart-alecy,also fairly immature and somewhat selfish,in that he craves recognition for his heroic as Spiderman,yet he knows this isn't possible.there is lot s of action here,but***Spoiler***the Lizard does not even appear until the last 15 or so minutes.still,this is the best looking Lizard of any of the animated Spiderman series so that,i mean the physicality and ferocity of the character.he is very impressive,very strong and deadly.and there is a good battle scene between him and Spidey.other well known villains also appear,but i won't give away which ones.i give this animated episode/feature a good 8/10
