Into the Spider-Verse is the latest Spider-Man film from Sony and is an animated adaptation giving us our first portrayal of Miles Morales who find himself caught in a multitude of universes of different Spider-Men and women after discovering he himself has powers. Wow what an entertaining movie! Im a huge Spider-Man fan but I wasn’t sold on this movie because frankly, I didn’t know much about it and the animation seemed odd to me. However, after hearing all the hype and great reviews I decided to check it out and was not disappointed! I may have had my expectations a little too high but this is still a very enjoyable movie. The animation in this film is gorgeous as the color and comic book-like drawings all collide to bring something that is truly spectacular and opes the door for a whole new world of animated films. Shameik Moore and Jake Johnson deliver fantastic voice performances and have wonderful chemistry as each help shape each other’s character arcs to remind us of what Spider-Man is really all about. Peter Parker is a character that we can all relate to in one way or another, and Spider-Man is a hero that anyone can be and that’s what Miles Morales has to learn. When he finally dawns the costume, it’s electrifying because it was built up so well. All of the characters are wonderful as well as the new incarnations or introductions of members of the Spidey universe. You also spend enough time with Miles and his problems actually make you end up caring for him and others as any good film should. There’s hilarious moments, references, lines, great action sequences, and just an all around great film. Definitely check Into the Spider-Verse if you haven’t already, it’s a blast.
