Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - animated, non-MCU, written by half of Lord and Miller, and REALLY GOOD


Recommended Posts

My daughter's the same age.  Don't think there's anything overly tense, but there are sad bits.  She was over excited about seeing the Spider-pig, so it's hard tell how scary the scary bits were for her. :)

 

 

Spoiler

Kingpin killing the first Spider-man

 

It's pretty brutal, even if it is off screen.

Saw this today with the kids.

 

It is outstanding.

 

The animation/visuals are fantastic, but alongside that it's a funny, engaging, sometimes sad, riveting superhero/coming of age/ocassionally slapstick comedy with real heart.

 

Kids loved it as well and I'm probably going to try and find the time to see it again next week.

Going to see this later. Did anybody bother with 3D, and is it worth it? Haven’t watched a film in 3D for years. 

I think it'd be a bit too much to take in 3d. There is a lot going on in most of the scenes.

It's a fantastic film. Blows away most comic book movies.

You just made me panic there. I'm sat waiting for it to start, and worried I'd need glasses. It didn't even occur to me to look. 

 

This film would be mad in 3D. I don't think I could take it.

That worked out brilliantly! Neither of them knew what we were seeing until the title card came up and they both sat there amazed through it all. Excellent film and a really good surprise for them both. Even as we were walking in my eldest was telling me it’s out on the 12th, so to bring him to see it next weekend!

There's one negative review for this. I won't link to it and give it the oxygen of publicity but the author made a bunch of technical-sounding but nonsensical comments about the artwork and is in his own comments section talking down to the readers about how much more qualified a judge of animation he is.

Watched this last night and it’s phenomenal. Creatively, every department is firing on all cylinders to the point where the whole thing buzzed with an energy and exuberance I haven’t experienced since Mad Max Fury Road. And I suspect this may have killed superhero movies for me in the same way that Fury Road killed action movies. Because there’s not going to be anything coming out any time soon that touches that.

I didn't enjoy this at all, if I'm being honest. Fairly straightforward superhero origin story, but some weird and wacky bits. And some bizarre visuals which I couldn't follow. Was expecting The Lego Movie – but about Spider-Man – from the advertising, but it wasn't like that really, apart from in a few places. Oh, and it didn't help that the cinema fucked up and played the 3D version of the film during what sold as a 2D screening,  which gave me an awful headache.
