I am not going to lie; when I first heard there was going to be another Spider-Man movie, I was skeptical. Shouldn’t animated superhero movies be reserved for television specials?
However, when my brother dragged me along to watch “Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse”, I was blown away by its vibrant graphics and grappling action that made me feel like I was in a real-life comic book.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse revolves around Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), a teenager who struggles to fit in at school and live up to the standards of his father. When Morales gets bitten by the iconic venomous spider, he gains unnatural abilities and has to team up with other Spider-Men from alternate dimensions to save New York City.
Although the plot can seem somewhat silly and too childish at times, the overall message that anyone can be Spider-Man—regardless of their background, gender or race—is fresh and unique against typical superhero stereotypes. The 3D-animated visuals is what really made the movie stand out. Its graphics within the movie are more jam-packed than some live-action films, leaving me at the edge of my seat for the entire length of the movie.
But one thing is for sure: “Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse” is not your “typical neighborhood” superhero movie.
