Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Best Spidey since Spider Man Two 15 years ago!

This is also the best animated superhero movie since the 1st Incredibles movie which incidentally enough was also FIFTEEN years ago. It outshines the official Incredibles sequel released the exact same year. INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE puts half of the live action Spider-Man movies to shame. It embraces the mythology; comments on the popularity; and even pokes a little fun at the absurdity of Marvel Comics' most popular character and one of comics' most enduring icons.
The dazzling animation is some of the most imaginative and spectacular looking computer imagery in years. It not only recreates the style of comics but it also pays homage to different animation styles (sometimes into the same scene!).
The technical achievements would be commendable if it was simply an adequate story. But INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE manages to be a gripping action-adventure and a compelling coming-of-age movie too. Honestly, this is what I hoped from the MCU's own Tom Holland led film Spider-Man: Homecoming which is a charming little movie. But it is easily overshadowed by this film's ambition.
SThe voice cast is spot on and the actors all play off each other very well. The humor is often pretty funny and the action scenes are outrageously fun and exciting and creative.
Families and comic book fans would love this movie as much as I certainly did.
