After having so many Spider-Man movies, you do have your doubts as you enter the theatre for an animated version. But as you watch the film, all your doubts are put to rest. Yes, it’s that good.
A teenager Miles Morales (dubbed by Shameik Moore) is bitten by a spider and as expected, his life changes. As he slowly discovers his superpowers, he comes to know he’s not alone and there are as many as five other Spider-People who possess special powers. There’s Peter Parker, the original Spider-Man (Jake Johnson), a Spider-Woman (Hailee Steinfeld), a mechanical conjurer Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn), Spider-Man Noir (Nicholas Cage) and Spider-Ham aka Peter Porker (John Mulaney). And they all are up against a common enemy, Kingpin (Liev Schreiber).
The best thing about the film is its writing & dialogues. It’s also smart enough to laugh on other Spider-Man films. It’s a perfect blend of humour, action scenes, drama and it also throws in many life lessons without being preachy at all. It’s also super fun to see so many Spider-people on screen. The animation is kickass, but it could’ve been fine even without the 3D. All voiceovers are super-cool.
We give this funny & intelligent film 3.5 stars with a big kink. Don’t you dare miss it.
