Moviefone's 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse' Review

"Into the Spider-Verse" is unlike any "Spider-Man" movie or almost any superhero movie you've ever seen.

Rendered like a four-color comic book and featuring spectacle that unfolds like the most abstract and boldest splash pages you've ever seen, and produced by "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" and "The LEGO Movie" filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, their latest feels like a celebration -- and perhaps overdue reminder -- of all of the things that made them such an refreshing, inventive presence to both animated and live-action filmmaking.

Bolstered by voice performances from a uniquely eclectic cast against a backdrop that defies description (and may possibly induce a few seizures), "Spider-Verse" offers a welcome new chapter that intersects and beautifully expands the series -- and cinematic mythology -- of existing Spider-films.

Shameik Moore plays Miles Morales, a mild-mannered teen reluctantly shuttled to a new high school for academically gifted teens after demonstrating an exceptional aptitude for science and math. His dad Jefferson (Bryan Tyree Henry), a police officer, doesn't know quite how to connect with him, choosing rigid discipline over gentle encouragement. But Miles ne'er-do-well uncle Aaron (Mahershala Ali) encourages his artistic impulses, even when they manifest themselves through graffiti and decidedly less legally suitable means of expression. After being bitten by a radioactive spider, Miles unexpectedly develops superhuman abilities, which he fails roundly to control, much less understand. But after his universe's Spider-Man dies trying to save New York from Kingpin (Liev Schreiber), Miles decides to take up the hero's alter ego and finish the task that he failed to complete.
