Ever wondered what it’s like to have your life dictated by others; your parents, relatives, friends and sometimes even your loved ones?

This is what Miles Morales, the one and only Spider-Man in Brooklyn (on his Earth at least), faces in the brand-new Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse movie.

Yes, you heard it right, even the mighty Spider-Man faces the same problems as all of us. He is a teenager underneath the suit, who has to face his parents and society as he discovers life.

However, there will be a time when he must decide in the crossroads of life. What will Miles do then?

Animation

Spider-Man is a well-known character from Marvel Comics and Miles was introduced to us in 2018 by Sony Animations and it became a super hit and even won an Oscar for the best Animated Feature Film.

Since then, there have been a lot of expectation from fans for the second movie. Well, truth be told, Sony stepped up to the challenge and it is safe to say that the animation was a feast for the eyes.

For some, it may seem like a little too much in the beginning but as the movie progresses, the animation grows on you as it adds an adrenaline rush to the action sequences.

The Story

As the movie begins, we learn the backstory of Spidey’s iconic duo Gwen Stacy (who is also a Spidey).

There is also the introduction of Spot, a seemingly funny character and a small-time villain, but never judge a book by its cover.

As for Morales, we will see his struggles of managing a normal life as a teenager while being the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man.

From there, the story starts to elevate and you get to see the most interesting scenes that was shown as a glimpse in the trailer, the elite Spider Club with 280 Spider-Man/Woman; a Spider Verse full of Spideys.

Before that, you will also be introduced to Miguel O’ Hara, who created the Spider Club and also the badass Spider-Woman.

There is also Peter Parker’s reentry, a character that has evolved since the first Spider-Verse movie.

The ultimate action sequence is Spider-Man against all the other Spideys.

Nevertheless, the scene takes place because of Morales’ choice at that point which did not sit well with O’Hara.

The movie may leave you with excitement but also, unanswered questions.

Most importantly it reveals a truth that no one wants to hear.

What is the truth, the questions and what is the excitement all about? Well, you have to find that out by yourself.

Overall, the movie had all the elements that a Spider-Man fan would absolutely enjoy. Plus, it will be very relatable to many.

For us, this movie gets a 10 out of 10.
