I will not compare this one with the other Spider-man movies but say that it’s one of a kind. Yes, there is nothing like that, and it has everything to make a power pack superhero movie. If you are wondering whether it lives up to the tag of Marvel that it carries along, I would suggest you go and watch yourself how wonderfully it lives up to the tag despite being an animated version.
It’s just like the comic book come alive, to start with. Although it is animated and primarily for kids, the elder Spider-man fans are bound to feel nostalgic. Also, they are bound to find many similarities with other Marvel superheroes. The movie matches the humor of Deadpool and also recreates some scenes from Spiderman 3.
As for the story, I just loved it. It’s different as to it doesn’t concern our usual Spider-man, Peter Parker. Set in Queens, New York itself, the movie is about Mike Morales, who is bitten by a radioactive spider and facing difficulties while coming to terms with his new superpowers. The movie also opens the gates for many other spider-persons who come from other parallel universes.
This multiverse and multi spider-persons thing induce a lot of excitement and thrill in the movie.
Apart from all the fun, thrill, and action, Into the Spider-Verse, like a true Marvel movie, has its own share of dark themes, violence, tragedies, and deaths.
Spoiler alert: Two major characters die in the movie.
One major attraction of the movie is a pre-recorded (and posthumous) animated cameo of the co-creator of Spider-man, Stan Lee
. Also, the post-credit scene is too obvious that you can guess what is going to be there in the sequel if you are a true Marvel fan.
Directed by Peter Ramsey, Robert Persichetti Jr., Rodney Rothman, Spider-man Into the Spider-Verse casts, Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Mahershala Ali. The outstanding performance, visuals, and music together have earned the movie 3.5 stars out of 5.
