Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Review!
So I was lucky enough to catch a early release showing of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and I figured I'd do a little non-spoiler review for you guys!
For starters, the film was a complete success to me. It had great sequences of action, humor, emotion, and relevancy, without being overbearing in any category. In addition to all that, the animation style alone would've been enough to get me to see this movie. This film took a bold leap by using mixed media animation in a feature length movie and it paid off by allowing a measure of realism to be spliced perfectly with classic comic book effects that feel completely natural throughout the movie.
The plot itself lends itself to being far more than just an origin story for Miles, but showcasing additional values that I won't spoil here. The film obviously plays with alternate realities which is always a blast but the technicality of it all never goes over the audiences head which let's viewers feel just as connected to the stakes as the protagonists.
One of the best and more unexpected elements of the film that I enjoyed was the diverse and experienced cast of actors and actresses including veterans like Liev Schrieber and Nicholas Cage, alongside those newer to the movie scene such as John Mulaney and Jake Johnson.
Long story short, this film exceeds expectations and needs to be supported because it shows the world that Superhero movies don't have to follow the formula that the MCU and DCCU have set. By supporting adventurous movies like this we promote competition and creativity in comic book movies which keeps the industry alive and helps them to compete to be the newest and best version of the story!
Easily a 10/10 movie, you won't regret seeing it when it comes out December 14th!
