4.5/5 ⭐️-This was awesome!!!!!! The best Spider-Man movie since “Spider-Man 2” and best animated movie this year. I love the animation style because it was definitely a tribute to the comics. The team of Lord and Miller (“21&22 Jump Street” and “The Lego Movie”) delivered a great script that was true to the characters and comics while also having some great humor, the script was also very meta but it made sure to never go too meta with its jokes.The soundtrack is one of the best of the year, I found myself head bopping a lot. The storyline was very gripping and I was fully invested in it as it was different then what most super hero films tackle. It was a bold storyline who’s tone was perfectly handled with its heart, humor and visually striking animation. The interactions between all the Spider-People was fun to watch and it shows that the actors had a fun time. The amount of fan service the film provided was a nerds dream, with the film oozing with so much wink wink moments for long time Spider-Man comic readers. The film handles the interconnected comic universes better than any super hero movie I can remember, as its ambitious storyline didn’t go to waste and they delivered something special. The film being animated, allowed its violence to be more dynamic than any of the previous 6 Spider-Man films have been allowed to be, due to being live action. The film features a touching Stan Lee cameo which is a guarantee in marvel movies but it definitely felt more bittersweet now due to his recent passing. The cameo felt more important than his usual ones were he’s just a bystander.
Shameik Moore (“Dope”) as fan favorite Miles Morales was amazing. I appreciated how fleshed out his character was as it allowed you to feel for him, at all the highs and lows. The entire voice cast does a great job especially Jake Johnson, Nicolas Cage and Brian Tyree Henry.#Marvel#StanLee#Spiderman#MilesMorales#PeterParker#TeddyPerkins#WonderWoman#StarTrek#GreenBook#Bumblebee#DoctorOctopus#GreenGoblin#NicolasCage#TheGetDown#NewGirl#Widows#WhiteBoyRick#LukeCage#RayDonovan#WilsonFisk#Kingpin#NewYork#Queens#AfroLatino#DonaldGlover#ChildishGambino#PostMalone#AnuelAA#PuertoRico
