Looking @ Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is Awesome!

Okay….. A Little too excited but this film deserves some love. The story takes place in New York where Peter Parker a.k.a the “Spider-Man” lives. In the same city Miles Morales suddenly gets spider powers, well not suddenly but I’m not gonna tell you how he got his powers. Because of some crazy experimentation by villains, a little cliché but well, that’s how hero stories are, a portal opens the door for several spider-characters including on older Spider-Man, a Spider-Woman, a Spider-Pig and much more

So what’s great about the story? The characters’ backgrounds are very relatable. Miles Morales has an African/Latin American heritage and as a teenager has family issues we all can relate to. When confronted with challenges Miles’ family values help him go forward so you also get a feeling of the importance of family relationships. In many instances in the movie because of his upbringing he has a more mature attitude than the adults. Peter B. Parker is reflection of many men I know. Peter has seen good days but when confronted with difficulties in his life he chose to detach himself from his true purpose.

The animation used for the movie is not the conventional 3D, it’s a combination of many styles. They manage to show a cartoon character in traditional cartoon style, an anime character in traditional anime style, even a black and white character. It a blending of ideas went well. Even the Spider-Sense looks cool. The Movie gives credit to Marvel but is not an official production from Marvel so it didn’t get the same promotion treatment and even got criticize for its theatrical release as an animation/cartoon movie. Until after the release of the movie when the audience reacted to the movie is when it got more popularity.

Several points of views were taken into consideration to create the final product. You can see the blending of several artistic methods. From the characters stories, the soundtrack to the animation used, everything is good. The movie is a testament that when talent gets together and has the freedom to create the result is something great.

Today the audience has access and is exposed to all sort of content which makes it difficult to predict whether a movie based on a good script, novel or comic books, in this case, will be a success or not. The audience has evolved and shouldn’t be underestimated.

It is an animated movie for the whole family to see. I could identify several characters that are like a family member of mine. Maybe it will be the same for you? Don’t believe me? See it for yourself and let me know
