Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse did not look all that interesting to me when I saw the first preview. By the time I saw the preview a couple more times, I was intrigued.
I finally saw the movie and WOW was it good. The artwork is exceptional. The storyline, although very deep, is actually not that hard to follow. The writing is amazing. It is written quite funny – with the same snarky, sarcastic humor of the original comic.
Nicolas Cage as the 30’s era Spider-Man Noir was a hoot. His dialogue was too funny, like when he called a bad guy, “ya hard-boiled turtle slapper.” Jake Johnson as the older and out of shape Spider-Man had the best comic lines throughout.
This film has a ton of action, great direction and of course, that wonderful artwork (it was worth mentioning again.) It even has a really good soundtrack. In short, this film is a joyride.
