Spider-Man: Into the the Spider-Verse Rated PG Fantasy/Science Fiction 1h 56m Movie Review

by Douglas Montgomery II

What’s up movie watchers!

     I had the pleasure of seeing Spider-Man:  Into the Spider-Verse over the past weekend and it was absolutely fantastic!  Or as Spider-Man is called, Amazing!

     The voice cast included among others, Liev Schreiber, Mahershala Ali, Nicolas Cage, Lily Tomlin, Chris Pine, and Shameik Moore as main character and hero, Miles Morales.  The movie sports a fresh and new animation style thanks to the animators at Sony Pictures Animation and with a reported budget of 90 million USD, the result is …..Amazing.

     As a longtime marvel comic reader and fan I must admit that I was partial to original Spider-Man’s alter ego Peter Parker, and while I had heard of Miles Morales, I’d never really embraced Morales.  Into the Spider-Verse changed that view, and Shameik Moore’s voice performance combined with a superbly written story/plot, delivers a Miles Morales with a charm that’s difficult not to embrace.  Mile Morales features all the things I’ve come to love and enjoy about Peter Parker/Spider-Man and then some!

     Spider-Verse features all things Spider-Man that I and fans of the hero have enjoyed for many, many years.  Humor, vulnerability, action, bad-ass villains, and high stakes, all set against a colorful animated canvas that’s displayed like it’s never been before.  This movie has everything for adults and children to enjoy, and included a soundtrack of hot music that drove a story that seemed to continually get better and better all the way to it’s heart-stopping, climactic, final action sequence.  And just before the unexpectedly entertaining end credits roll, you’re treated to a heart felt scene that we’ve come to expect from Spider-Man.

   Folks, I cannot say enough good things about this movie! So go out to your local theater and dive deep into the Spider-Verse!  You’ll have an amazing cinematic experience!
