User Reviews

The action scenes are quite well done
31 August 2005 | by toeragamuffinSee all my reviews

Apart from the action scenes this simplistic, juvenile fare is basically a waste of time. I was excited to see this but felt disappointed by it's shallow plots and characters. The computer animation is understandably simple, which is OK in itself, but combined with an average script I felt I was watching an opening for a computer game and wished i could hit escape to just get on with the game. I watched 3 episodes of this new spider-man series but found myself just fast forwarding to the action scenes as the actual dialog is painful. The one liners voiced by our nimble hero do not embody what I would call actual wit, just plain stupid adages. I'm finished complaining now, I don't usually complain so much but am obliged to write 10 lines for some reason.
