Not Too Much Movie Review: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)February 20, 2019
Directors: Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, Rodney Rothman
Writers: Phil Lord, Rodney Rothman
Starring: Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld
Best superhero movie of 2018, best Spider-Man movie ever and just all around brilliant.
The film deftly balances as many, if not more, story threads than your average Avengers movie while still giving each character their own developed emotional through line. I also appreciate that this film didn’t really feel as if it had to compromise storytelling because of its medium. This is a rich well-told story that could rival any of the best from Nolan, Raimi, or Coogler. Pair this with some of the most interesting and innovative visuals I’ve seen in a mainstream animated film and hilarious supporting roles from Nicolas Cage and John Mulaney, I really dug this film.
