Where I Got It: Friend's copy


Teen Miles Morales becomes Spider-Man of his reality, crossing his path with five counterparts from other dimensions to stop a threat for all realities.


Oooo Spidey. You are a classic. I loved the cartoons when I was a kid and he is always a part of my heart. I'm bummed my BF's last name is Peter because he is TOTALLY not on board with my idea of naming our future kid Parker. Lameass...that would be fun. Parker Peter...HA! 


Store follows a young Miles who becomes the Spider-Man of his universe after the original dies. Poor Peter. Things happen and Miles comes across 5 of his counterparts from other alternate dimensions. All of them similar but different in a lot of ways. They need to get back to their own dimensions before they are destroyed. 

Now, I will admit here and now, I missed the first 20 mins of the film. I happened to walk in on my friend and his kid watching it. I was hooked though. One funny line and I was drawn in like a moth to the flame. They gave me a quick two second ran down on what I missed and I was up to speed. 

Loved Miles. He was a fun character. I loved all the other Spider-Mans too. They were all fun. They had me laughing and feeling. I think my favorite was the brown-haired Peter Parker who let himself go a little. He was a hoot. 

The animation was amazing. So comic-like and cool. It was clever and done well. I especially liked how the animation for each of the SMs was different based on where they came from. For example, the anime girl Spider-Man was anime. It was nice. 

The ending was good. As per normal, there is room for another movie if they decide to. I really would like to see Miles more and see him maybe visit his new friends in their dimensions. That would be fun. 

Overall, I really, really enjoyed this. I highly recommend this film if you like Spider-Man. You'll get a kick out of it. I'll give it 5 stars.
