Summary

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is as meta as any previous Lord and Miller project, opening with a voice over acknowledgement that the tale of the friendly neighborhood hero is one that you already know and have heard countless times. But that’s the story of Peter Parker, and alluded to, that’s not the origin that this movie is here to tell. This is the story of Miles Morales (Shameik Moore).

Pros

The story is for Into The Spider-Verse is so good! I had to re-write this review like three times just because the story is so rich and easy to rave about. The introduction to our heroes and their worlds is both clever and organic with some downright gut busting humor and eye catching imagery. I like Miles’ costume design and choices. I love the new origin for the character. I didn’t really have a problem with Miles’ spray painted Spider-Logo as I presumed it would likely represent an early iteration of Miles’ costume and I expect him to refine the look moving forward.

Cons

There’s too-many spider-men, with too little to do, in too little time. We’re introduced to some cool looking characters that seem worth further exploration throughout the Spider-Verse movie but we don’t explore them. In fact, their appearances are mostly cameos for fan-service and gags. Seriously, I would have loved for their to be a bit more insight into the worlds of Spider-Man Noir or Spider-Ham but alas it’s not meant to be in this films…
