'Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse' Review 🎬

Considering the new animated 'Spider-Man' instalment is sitting at 97% on Rotten Tomatoes and 87% on Metacritic at the time of writing, my expectations for this film were quite high. As Vox points out, since 2002 Sony has released six different Spider-Man movies with 3 different Peter Parkers, which means this animated Miles Morales has some big boots (or Jordans) to fill. Did he do it?


This movie is an adrenaline-filled, action-packed, visually stunning, funny, clever and engaging masterpiece of an action film that injects some much-needed life into the genre of superhero films that have oversaturated the industry for 10 years now. We needed a brand new hero and in Miles, we got that and then some.

The Plot 

It's clever. It's ridiculously funny. It's not afraid to make fun of itself or the franchise of Spider-Man as a whole. It's just downright excellent. Miles Morales, the first black Spider-Man ever, opens up a portal to find alternate reality Spider-Mans and fights a supervillain and falls in love. The classic coming-of-age story should feel heavy, but it doesn't. It's as wild as the comics were and an inspiring, wholesome, relevant and engaging story. 

The Animation

The world of this Spider-Man is gorgeously realised, bathed in adrenaline and creativity that boldly defines it as like nothing you've ever seen. The bright, bold colours and the use of the cityscape screams a modern elegance we haven't seen in animated filmmaking ever. It isn't a cheap version of the comics, it is a masterpiece in its own right.

The Music

One of the biggest drawcards to the film is without a doubt the music. Check out the whole playlist here, but rest assured that it is full of some of the biggest names in hip-hop right now, which means the soundtrack is just as energetic as the film itself.

Final Thoughts

Without a doubt, 'Into The Spider-Verse' is one of the best Spider-Man movies ever made. If you were in doubt about seeing this - do it. It's one to remember.
