Miles Morales comes across the long-dead Peter Parker. This Peter Parker is not from his world though; he's from somewhere else in the multiverse. With Parker's guidance, Miles will become Spider-Man: and through that he will become part of the ever-expanding 'Spider-Verse'.Written by
When Miles Morales first visits his uncle, there's a quick TV shot of a character dressed as Spider-Man standing up from a bed. This is a recreation of the season 2 introduction of the TV show Community where Troy, played by Donald Glover, is dressed in his Spider-Man pj's. Donald Glover was the fan choice to play Miles Morales in a live action Spider-Man film. Donald Glover also plays the uncle of Miles Morales in Spider-Man Homecoming. See more »
If this was an apology for the Emoji Movie, then apology accepted!
Wow. Just wow. I'm in awe. Into the Spider-Verse, is everything I hoped it would be. This is a game-changer for both superhero filmmaking and animation altogether. Sleek, colorful, funny, emotional, frenetic. This film skillfully balances all these elements. There is never a moment that felt forced or pandering. It's a bold and stylish take on the Spider-Man mythos, and perhaps the best big-screen Spidey picture to date.
The characters are colorful and relatable. Their dilemmas are engaging and they've all got their stand-out moments during both the fast-paced sequences, and the slower dramatic ones. I especially love diverse animation. The stylish, somewhat choppy comic book look is breathtaking to watch, and I appreciated the energetic, anime vibe that was used to animate Peni Parker, as well as the bouncy, eccentric nature of Spider-Ham. The alternate takes of several Spider-Man villains is a breath of fresh air, also. Doc Ock, Scorpion, Green Goblin. They all have distinct new looks and motion. Some silly, but still quite scary and riveting to watch them in action.
I didn't have a single issue with this film. I was dazzled and moved throughout. The animation, the story, the characters, the music, it's all excellent. The film, with no pun intended, is a marvel. It takes risks with its action and drama, but it's also lighthearted and fun without needing to talk down to its audience with pandering nonsense. Into the Spider-Verse is the most fun I've had in a theater all year. Believe the hype. Believe the praise. Massive bravo!
