Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Movie Review

In the past, sequels have gained a bad rap to be worse than the first movie. However, this was not the case with Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Hitting theaters this past June, the movie made 120 million dollars alone in the first weekend of its debut. As a major fan of the Spider Man movie franchise, I was really excited for this movie to come out especially since I really enjoyed the first one. I will say, I was scared it would not live up to the hype. I was completely wrong, it was better than I initially expected it to be.

The movie was hilarious, especially Andy Samburgs cameo character, Ben Reilly. The animation was my favorite. The 2D elements and bright colors really add to the movie’s ambiance. The directors did not shy away when it came to adding new characters, making them just as lovable as the cast in the first movie. As a huge fan of Metro Boomin, I was really surprised and loved his cameo in the movie as well, but I would have to say the soundtrack of the movie was one of its best aspects. The playlist featured Coi Leray, Dominic Fike, and A$ap Rocky, along with many other artists.

As a sucker for romance movies, I was really disappointed that the main characters, Miles and Gwen, did not end up as a couple as I had hoped. Hopefully, this will spark a third sequel movie and the two will finally end up together.

My favorite scene of the entire movie took place when Miles was being chased by the numerous versions of Spider-Man. This part of the movie was cool to see because all of the new 95 characters were introduced. They are all so different and unique in their own way; none of them looked the same and I loved seeing some of the different animation styles and personalities in the characters. My favorite Spider-Man is definitely Spider-Cat; I thought this was really funny and interesting that a cat was portrayed as a version of Spider-Man. I was especially sad when it came to the heartbreaking ending that ultimately led to an unexpected cliffhanger.

I am glad to say I will be there on opening night when the third movie comes out in late 2024. With a run time of 140 minutes, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will definitely be at the top of my movie favorites list.
