Spider-Man: Across the Spider-VerseBy Brian

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is a computer-animated superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Miles Morales / Spider-Man. It was produced by Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation in association with Marvel Entertainment and distributed by Sony Pictures.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was one of the most anticipated summer movies of 2023, and it did not disappoint. The new Spider-Man movie was amazing! We watched the first one the night before to refresh ourselves on it and it’s a good thing we did because there were a lot of callbacks to it for those fans.

The sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018), Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is set in a shared multiverse of alternate universes called the Spider-Verse.

In the first movie, teenage protagonist Miles Morales becomes the Spider-Man of his universe and must join with five spider-powered individuals from other dimensions to stop a threat for all realities.

In the sequel, Morales catapults across the Multiverse, where he encounters a team of Spider-People charged with protecting its very existence. When the heroes clash on how to handle a new threat, Miles must redefine what it means to be a hero.

At a runtime of 2 hours and 20 minutes, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is the longest American animated film to date. But it was so well done, I could have happily sat there for another two hours watching more of it. And they hid the ending so well… you never had a sense of “oh things are wrapping up now” or “I see where they’re going with this.”

The artwork was amazing, the soundtrack was amazing, the writing was funny, clever, smart, and deeply emotional at the same time. And it was PG so no bad words, no gory violence, and the soundtrack doesn’t have any explicit lyrics.

$120 million opening weekend proves that people will go see a good movie that has a good story even if it doesn’t have all those other things. We’ve cut way back on going to the theater with how expensive it’s gotten. We didn’t see the latest Dr Strange, Guardians, or Ant Man movies. But this movie was worth every penny!
