Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

Score 86%

If you like comics, you will love this new Spider-man. We got used to Peter Parker, a lot of movies have been made about him. Same old same old, really. Yes, they change actors, they change bad guys but the delivery of the story line is basically the same. This film, on the contrary, is kind of revolutionary. Hang on to your seats because Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street) are bringing us a groovy, brilliantly animated Miles Morales and it is a delight to watch.

A fresh story line

Brooklyn teen, Miles Morales is in awe of Spider-man/Peter Parker but he hasn’t come to the realization of who he wants to become. When he is bitten by a radioactive spider, his life is in disarray. Can he become another Spider-Man knowing that his father (a policeman) hates vigilantes? Can more than one wear the mask?

He is going to have to take a leap of faith in order to find his true path.

Well, I have done a bit of research and it turns out that Miles Morales made his debut in the Ultimate Marvel Universe comics 8 years ago in 2011.

To sum it up:

  • Scientists used Peter Parker’s blood to create another radioactive spider
  • Spider is stolen / brought accidentally home by a thief
  • Thief happens to be Miles Morales’ uncle
  • Miles Morales, a half black, half Puerto Rican teenager goes to visit his uncle
  • Gets bitten
  • Has all the power of Peter Parker plus a camouflage power and an electric shock power
  • Sees Spider-man get killed by green goblin and does nothing
  • Feels guilty and wants to do some good
  • Takes over as Spider-man

I’ve obviously skipped over a few (ok, maybe a lot) of details but Miles Morales is legit.

All in all, I enjoyed it. The soundtrack is funky, the actors are well chosen and it made me laugh. What more can you ask for?

Summary Miles Morales is bitten by a radioactive spider. He acquires all of Spider-man's abilities but can there be more than one? This new age animation is really fun to watch for the whole family. Don't miss it.
