Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse Review
Thefanboyseo.com offers up a webslide of comments in this Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse review coming December 12 from Columbia Pictures Philippines.
The movie focuses on the life of Miles Morales, a talented kid from Brooklyn who is suddenly thrust into taking over the mantle of Spider-Man in this universe after getting bitten by an irradiated spider and gaining the proportionate strength of a spider.
Oh and he also witnesses something traumatic that changes his way life forever.
Add to that the problem of several Spider-Men showing up out of nowhere and looking to find a way back home.
Here are some of the pros and cons for this Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse review.
I love the choices they had for this film. A pudgy Spider-Man from a similar world, Spider-Gwen aka Ghost Spider, Spider-Man Noir, Peni Parker and Spider-Ham. Everybody had their moments and everybody had their quirks. They each added something to both the plot and the development of Miles Morales.
The style they used for the film is very fresh. It would be amiss to not call this animated feature, animated. Those neon colors and blitzy artworks did wonders for the movie.
Character designs were also something that is worth nothing. It was a good mix of comic book aesthetics with some modern twist, particularly for Miles Morales. Other notables are Green Goblin and even Kingpin.
The humor is top-notch here. I do not want to make comparisons to other Spider-Man films. But this one had more situational and spoken humor than all the other Spidey movies
The emotional right hook we all have grown to love from Spider-Man is also present in “Into the Spider-Verse”. Its also not just limited to the younger audience but also for adults. I for one felt massive feels relating to adult Peter Parker who has been in a slump before he got transported to another universe. Its all Spider-People’s ability to bounce back that made the movie all the more meaningful.
A couple of villains surprised me here and I love how, even I didn’t see them initially. And how some of the villains ended up in, made me shed a tear. Hell, even Kingpin had a solid motivation to keep his beat exciting.
The other surprise voice actors are worth notinf here too. You need to keep your ears peeled to hear who these actors are. You would blown away.
Where’s Ganke?! Was that Ganke in the trailers? The guy who fainted upon seeing Spider-Man and friends? They could have developed him a bit. No biggie though.
The other characters could have gotten more than a minute of backstory. Noir and Gwen had to be fleshed out. Scratch that, Peni Parker was so vague. We need more backstory!!!
Music was too hip-hop. I know, I know. But could they have found a balance between pop and hip-hop. After the screening, I had to wash down with the Spider-Man OST.
Sunflower had no direct relate to the movie, the story or the character. Was rather lame. See Yellowcard’s “Gifts and Curses” for a full relate to Peter Parker.
Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse Review Verdict
Highly recommend Spider-Verse not just to kids and fans of Spidey but for everybody. Parents can learn more about raising teenagers, teenagers can learn how to rely on parents again, Adults can learn how we need to pick ourselves up after a fall and there’s the power of friendship trope too.
Into the Spider-Verse is amazingly, spectacularly the best animated movie to date. I would rank this as the second best Spidey movie for the well-written and well-made product.
