“Teen Miles Morales becomes Spider-Man of his reality, crossing his path with five counterparts from another dimension to stop a threat for all realities.” —IMDB
Marvel does it again. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an animated feature film by Marvel about Miles Morales, a diverse take on the role of Spider-man. Miles is such a wonderful character and a breath of fresh air regarding the Spider-Man role. He’s relatable and the take on his character is much different than previous incarnations of the role. It was such a wonderful take on the character on the big screen to follow Miles on his journey to be a superhero. It’s a struggle, it doesn’t come naturally to him at all, and he has to learn, under the tutelage of the other spider-people. It’s a fun and moving story about his journey, showing wonderful character development and creating a very relatable character for fans.
Now, while the story was on point there was also another amazing aspect of the film: the animation. I don’t mean to sound so informal but yo, the animation was amazing. The animation in the film was so unique to the film and stylistically like a comic book, but the shading to the lining, and the adding of words and narrative into the picture of the film. It’s a visually stunning film, full of color and vibrancy that just makes the film so amazing. It’s an amazing adaptation of a comic series that Is funny and amazing to watch.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a visually stunning film with amazing character development and a beautiful and moving story full of heart and action. (★★★★ | A+)
