    This was a very clever rendition of one of the earlier Christopher Brook Adventure Series for children by Warren Chaney, who also wrote the screenplay. The story had the right amount of complexity to hold a young viewer's attention but simple enough to keep the film moving. I particularly enjoyed the young actors in the production. It was as if the novel's characters of Christopher and his little friend Misty had been directly lifted from the book. Luis Lemus and Suzanne Savor were excellent as the film's villains as was Chuck Stockdale as Zach Taylor. "Into the Spider's Web" carried a message of morality as all of the Brook Adventures novels do. However, the message enhanced the picture rather than detracting from it as sometimes happens. Well written, adequately directed, and nicely photographed.

    "Into the Spider's Web" is based upon the children story character, Christopher Brook, created by Warren Chaney who also wrote this entertaining screenplay. It follows the story of the 10-year old boy genius who has invented a new communication device allowing the receiver to see and hear what the sender is experiencing. Enter the villain; a dark sultry voice seen is silhouette only, referred to as the Spider Lady. Instructing her henchmen, the Spider Lady attempts to steal the device and that failing, to kidnap the investor.Helping test the device and taking part in the adventure is Christopher's pilot/adventure friend, Zach Taylor. In skirmish after skirmish, the friends a plunged into international intrigue and mystery.In an exciting air chase, Taylor's amazing stunt piloting and physical daring saves both the invention and the inventor. In an exciting climax, the Spider Lady's henchmen are caught and the female rogue is nearly trapped in her lair. True to the original novel, she is never caught and promises to return another day. Christopher Brook's invention is a success as is Zach's rescue.Into the Spider's Web is a wonderful children's adventure full off action and suspense for the young set. Chaney's screenplay is well thought out blending humor and mystery but no so as to overwhelm the young mind. Steve McCurdy ably directs the film and consistently moves the plot forward.The action is capable and Robert Shafer as Christopher Brook is adorable is his little friend Misty, portrayed on screen by Jessica Avery. Veteran stunt/pilot Chuck Stockdale actually flies his own plane and does many of the stunts himself, adding considerably to the films realism. Luis Lemas is the Spider Lady's chief henchman together with Suzanne Savoy; they nearly steal the film with their expert tongue in cheek performances.From start to finish, "Into the Spider's Web" presents an entertaining adventure story suitable for all family viewing.
