Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse is undeniably another revolutionary milestone in animation, following in the footsteps of its groundbreaking predecessor. It’s truly a thrilling ride with a great story at its core. You’ll feel the hard work that went into making this masterpiece in your bones watching the movie.
The animations and art style are truly marvelous to look at. Every frame of the movie is a masterpiece. The animation of the movie left Disney and Pixar animations far behind. They've got some serious catching up to do after this one. The message is loud and clear: the age of hyper-realism in animation is ancient history!
The story is crazy engaging throughout. It's like a non-stop roller coaster ride through the multiverse. Even with all the new spider people they introduce, they never lose sight of the main story, which is all about Miles Morales and his incredible journey. And let's not forget about Gwen - she totally steals the show too! I couldn't get enough of her character art style in her universe. It's absolutely breathtaking on the big screen.
The way they establish the rules of the multiverse in this movie connects so well with the overarching plot of the MCU, even though it's not officially part of it. You can spot some similar imagery being used, and it all fits together seamlessly. It's got me hoping for a future crossover!
The only downside I found was that the dialogues can be a bit tough to follow if English isn't your first language. Everybody's talking in different accents that highlight their uniqueness. So, if you're a non-native English speaker, make sure you've got those subtitles on. Otherwise, you might miss out on some key world-building details.
This movie is seriously a game-changer in the world of animation. It shows us the incredible power of animation as a form of entertainment and what it can achieve. If you have yet to see it, trust me, you've got to check it out.
