Movie Review – Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

The first animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse blew everyone away with its visual style and added a compelling story. In order to meet expectations, the sequel Across the Spider-Verse would have to amp up the storyline since we already know what to expect from the visuals. That’s asking a lot of a sequel. In my opinion, this movie just barely exceeded my expectations. But most of that is based on the ending and what has been set up for the third movie: Beyond the Spider-Verse.

Visually Dense

This movie is visually exhausting to watch. I mean that as a compliment and a complaint. There are so many details to catch, plus little text bubbles that don’t appear long enough to fully parse. This is one of the few movies I could enjoy watching at one-quarter speed. And even at that rate, there are still places I’d have to pause or even rewatch to fully parse everything going on.

Embrace the Multi-Verse

I don’t want to get into the specific details, but I think this story embraces the possibilities of the multi-verse better than any that have come before it and I’m excited to see how the story goes forward in the next movie. I’m not sure this will make a lot of sense to everyone, but my feeling is that Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness used the multiverse as a prop, whereas Across the Spider-Verse uses the multi-verse as a foundation.

Grade: A-

About The Peetimes: I expected it to be hard to do Peetimes for this movie, but sheeeesh! It was nearly impossible. The second Peetime is the only one I would recommend. The first Peetime has some relationship development, and the last Peetime is full of action and humor.

Best app ever!

RunPee is the only app we use before movies and afterward. not only does RunPee tell you when it’s a good time to leave the theater, kids these days ask if there’s anything during/after the credits, and RunPee lets parents know when there might be some thing that a kid might miss!

RunPee has tidbits, ratings, leave the theater times, and lengths. This is THE VITAL APP for watching any movie!

We used it when my wife was pregnant, and we have recommended it to every pregnant gal we know! How else can you enjoy a movie when you have to go out so often?!

    I loved the movie until the ending. Much of my love for it was the cinematography. The story was great thought the middle seemed to be an action sequence that was too long. Time that could have been used to develop their enemy who as it stand is a foil for the sake of being a fool. [spoiler alert]

    A story needs to be self contained, unless you’re Dadaist, even if a sequel is planned. Here the end is abrupt without any resolution. It’s as if a 5 hour film was spliced at a random point in the middle. It would have been better to have named the film as part 1 so the ticket buyer knows there has to be a commitment to see part 2. Like Harry Potter did with the last book Deathly Hallows. As it is the filmmaker has broken his/her pact w the audience. Booo!

    Nothing was resolved, I can’t recall a more abrupt stop to a movie.
