Miles Morales explores the multiverse even further after the new villain, the Spot, shows up in his dimension.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has a lot to live up to considering its predecessor, Into the Spider-Verse, won the Oscar (and more) – but it somehow manages to do it.
Sixteen months after the events of the first film, Miles Morales/Spider-Man (voiced by Shameik Moore) and Gwen Stacy/Spider-Woman (Hailee Steinfeld) are back in their own dimensions.
However, they are forced to reunite and team up with other Spider-People following the arrival of the Spot (Jason Schwartzman), a scientist with interdimensional portals on his body.
The original movie was an inventive, groundbreaking visual achievement and this manages to go one better. The way it seamlessly blends various animation styles, sometimes in the same frame, will blow your mind. It is vibrant, unique and technically astounding.
But it’s not a case of style over substance – the film has a good story too, with plenty of emotional depth and dramatic stakes and exciting action...
