Full review on my blog max4movies: The Spider's Web is an action movie serial about Richard Wentworth, a rich criminologist, who fights crime as the masked vigilante The Spider. In 15 episodes, Wentworth's fight against the criminal mastermind The Octopus is shown, who plans attacks on the country's transportation systems to gain control over the most important industries. While the basic premise is intriguing and some action sequences are still enjoyable, the movie's entertainment value is largely due to nostalgic reasons. By modern standards, there are many drawbacks, like the jumbled narrative, the redundant cliffhangers, and the poor performances of side characters. Considering its runtime of about 5 hours, the movie serial never quite accomplishes to tell a coherent story with genuinely interesting characters - although some episodes are fun to watch.
