    There isn’t any other easy way for me to say this but SONY outdid themselves here with “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse”. It’s stop motion 3D animation style blends in seamlessly with the comic-book art style and visual effects as well as some of the coolest looking shots in the film. Character progression is at a all time high with the exception of the antagonist and all of it plays well into Miles Morales character arc as well as everyone else’s. The action sequences are amazing, whatever shocks and twists the film has are, needless to say, well executed and the fact that SONY took this opportunity to actually have some fun and poke some fun with all its cliches and gimmicks, this film explores the classics as well as the uniquely bizarre, which I fear will probably turn off some average moviegoers who haven't experienced these characters yet. But if you can't embrace a film like that, it's probably not for you.

    As a coming of age story, it’s fresh. As a Miles Morales story and an origin story, it’s very enthralling and fulfilling. But as a Spider-Man story, let alone one we haven’t seen on the silver screen yet, it’s spectacular. Rather than a replacement, we get a successor to the legacy. This is one of the better tales of the character I’ve seen yet and is practically on the same level as Spider-Man 2, if not better. And considering how SONY has already confirmed a franchise is in the works, I’m just praying to the almighty Madam Web that success does not get to them and maybe we won’t get a repeat like we did 11 years ago.

    Well.....either way, it’s gonna be fun seeing where they go next.
