Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse provides interesting twist on classic story

Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) lived the “typical life” of a 13 year old boy in modern day Brooklyn, New York. When bitten by a radioactive spider, Miles’ life changes completely and he is given powers similar to those of Peter Parker, a.k.a the Amazing Spider-Man (Jake Johnson/Chris Pine).

Kingpin (Liev Schreiber), an evil maniac, has a plan to get back his family who he lost by opening a dangerous multi-dimensional portal. As a result, “spider people” from all sorts of dimensions get sucked into Miles’ world. To survive, they have to work together, defeat Kingpin and other enemies, and get back into their dimensions.

This movie teaches so many important and valuable messages in a very clever way. For someone who loves watching Marvel movies, I loved how this movie was a little bit different and edgy. The graphics were very well thought out and I loved how the visuals really catch your eye. 

“Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse” is action packed and will always have you on the edge of your seat with every scene. The soundtrack of this movie was also great featuring songs including “Sunflower” by Post Malone and Swae Lee as well as “What’s Up Danger” by Blackway and Black Caviar. These songs add to the suspense and thrilling mood of the movie.

Miles Morales is an influential teen that people of any age watching this movie can relate to. For one thing, he didn’t get control of his powers right off the bat, but he had to work hard and endure even when he felt like he was alone. Also, Miles was pretty much all alone without the help of his family along the way.

If anyone would like a spin on the classic story of the Amazing Spider Man, Spiderman: into the Spider-Verse is a great choice. It is a great movie to watch for elementary and middle school level children, but it passes along important messages to everyone watching. If all of this wasn’t enough, it also won best animated film of the year at the Academy Awards in 2019. 

“Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse” is rated PG and the runtime is 1h 57m. It was released in December of 2018 and is available to stream on Netflix, Vudu, Fandango Now, and more.
