Spiderman Across the Spiderverse – A review

Spiderman Across the Spiderverse: A review

You’ve probably heard of Spiderman.

Spiderman is one of the most recognizable characters in all of Marvel movies. There have been many interpretations of him in TV shows and movies alike. Spiderman Across the Spider-Verse is a must-watch movie for all Marvel fans out there. This movie is a sequel to the first Spiderman Into the Spiderverse and does not disappoint. The animation is stunning, and the storyline is captivating. 

The first movie follows the story of Miles Morales, a 16-year-old Brooklynite who is also Spiderman. Miles faces different challenges as he tries to balance his superhero life and his personal life. The movie is action-packed and filled with humor, making it enjoyable for both kids and adults.

The second movie is about Miles who becomes Brooklyn’s favorite hero. He has starred in TV shows, songs, and even baby powder ads! The story follows him as he tries to follow Gwen Stacy (Spider-Woman) into a portal after she gets a call from someone, one thing leads to another and Miles finds himself in India with no idea of what he’s doing. And that is when the story begins! The movie is so fun and the end made me scream “NO!

One of the things that make this movie stand out is the introduction of new Spiderman characters from different universes. The movie features new Spidermen/women such as Spiderman 2099 (Miguel O’Hara) who Oscar Isaac voices. There is also Spider Punk (Hobie Brown) who is voiced by Daniel Kaluuya. One of my favorite characters, Spiderman India (Pavitr Prabhakar), is voiced by Karan Soni.

The chemistry between the characters is great, and it’s interesting to see how they interact with each other. There are many funny duos like Hobie and Pravitr and Miguel and Peter B. Parker.

Spiderman India is especially fun for the Indians watching this movie, when Miles goes to India, there are many references to Indian culture. This includes four people on a motorcycle seat and “Chai Tea” instead of “Chai”. There are also a lot of Indian stereotypes in the movie. The first time I watched the movie was with some of my friends, my brother, and my mom,  we were all dying of laughter when they referenced some Indian stereotypes. Such as Pavitr’s girlfriend being called Gayatri (which is the most Indian name), and an officer called “Inspector Singh,” and the fact that the city in which Miles is stuck in, and that Pavitr lives in, is called “Mumbattan” (Mumbai and Manhattan).

I adore the music. I could talk about it for hours and hours. The music is a mix of hip-hop and electronic beats, which adds to the overall vibe of the movie. The animation is also top-notch, with vibrant colors and unique character designs. All the songs are made by artist Metro Boomin and other singers. They sound amazing, and you should listen to them sometime! Some of my favorite songs from the album are Calling by Swae Lee, NAV, and Metro Boomin, Am I Dreaming? By A$AP Rocky, Metro Boomin, and Roisee, Home by Don Toliver, Lil Uzi Vert and Metro Boomin, Self Love by Coi Leray and Metro Boomin, and a lot more!

Spiderman Across the Spider-Verse is a great addition to the Spiderman franchise. It’s a fun, action-packed movie that will leave you wanting more. Whether you’re a die-hard Marvel fan or just looking for a good movie to watch, Spiderman Across the Spider-Verse is worth checking out. You can find the movies in theaters today or on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Vudu, and more.
