SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE MOVIE REVIEW
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman and stars Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry, Lily Tomlin, Luna Lauren Velez, John Mulaney, Nicolas Cage, Liev Schreiber, and Kimiko Glenn. The plot of the movie is Miles Morales becomes Spider-Man of his reality and crosses paths with his counterparts from other dimensions to stop a threat to all reality. When the trailers for this movie came out I thought that the movie was going to be bad. I hated the bizarre look of the animation and the humor just felt forced. The movie is better than I thought it would be, but I didn't think it was great. I did eventually get used to the animation style. The only characters I liked in this movie were Peter Parker voiced by Chris Pine, Gwen Stacy voiced by Hailee Steinfeld and Miles Morales voiced by Shameik Moore. In fact, I really wish the movie was just about the three of them because all of the other characters I found to be annoying. Some of the jokes in this movie are very funny, but other times just like I thought while watching the trailer it felt forced. One of the most annoying things about the movie is each character that is introduced they have this way of telling their backstory and it just felt more and more repetitive every time they did it. The film isn't afraid to get serious one of my favorite things about this movie was Miles's story. He has a very difficult relationship with his father who is a cop. He would rather hang out with his Uncle who his father doesn't get along with. He is being forced to go to this fancy school that he doesn't feel comfortable in and I found myself caring about this character. The villain in the movie is Kingpin and he was very underdeveloped and hardly in the movie. 3 out of 5 stars for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope it helped you decide whether to see the movie or not.
