Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, released on December 14th, made by Sony and Marvel was nothing short of an amazing visual masterpiece. Not only is this movie a box office hit, but every scene managed to make viewers feel like they are living inside of a comic book.

From the incredible popping colors, to the different art styles for each character, to the heart wrenching origin story of Miles Morales, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was enjoyable to watch every second. Focusing on the story, the producers make such an old story of the kid Miles into a fresh new beginning for him. During my viewing of the movie, I couldn’t help but root for Miles to persevere through the changes of becoming a Spider-Man.

Aside from Miles, the whole concept of multiple Spider-Men/Women throughout different realities was beyond a normal kids movie, and every different character was filled with their own interesting attributes whether it be their origin, their personality, or how they came about becoming the friendly-neighborhood crime stopper.

I certainly have a lot of appreciation for the directors choices for the movie and its cinematography. One of the choices was adding a blur effect to the screen, almost making it appear to be a 3D movie without using the glasses, but in reality the blur effect added a lot of depth to the screen, and further pursued the theme of a living comic book.

In my opinion, creating an animated movie with such depth offers so many more opportunities. Every scene of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is fast paced with so many eye candy details that you are certainly not going to pick up on the first viewing.


Overall, I give this film 5 out of 5 Nighthawks:
