Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

More Than One Wears the Mask 2018/12/6 117 min.


Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is the sequel to the 2020 comic book adaptation. In the film, the suit has been broken and Peter Parker (Oscar Isaac) has gone back to being Peter Parker - a high school student. Instead of returning to being a high school student, he now finds himself high up on the corporate ladder, and life as a superhero has given him more than enough to deal with. He needs to find a way to communicate with Gwen (Emma Stone), who's still trapped in the future that Peter couldn't find.

With Gwen, the main conflict of the movie is about the compatibility between the two characters. For many critics, the scene in which they reunite feels too forced, as if it was just added on at the last minute. It doesn't help that both Emma Stone and Chris Evans are fairly young looking for their respective characters.

Unlike most of the Marvel movies to date, there is very little story behind the walls of the Hobgoblin and the wall-crawler's fight. It just comes across as 'These two guys get into an argument, and the bad guy beats the crap out of the good guy'. Sure, it's cool that the fight is epic, but it's not too much of a surprise for the viewer. It feels more like an event, rather than an actual plot line.

This movie also takes a lot of liberties with the source material. One notable example is when Peter tries to explain the dangers of a villain called The Yellowjacket. Instead of explaining the origin story and the science behind the villain, we get images of Yellowjacket's fight with Spider-Man in the comics. This isn't exactly a huge problem, but it seems like they threw everything out the window in this movie.

It would have been much better if the Hobgoblin had been named the Rhino instead of The Yellowjacket. The comic book only has one villain named The Yellowjacket, so it seems like a mistake for the writers to name two separate villains. Another example is when they show Gwen's fight with Spider-Man's enemy, the Lizard. While the Lizard is one of the most feared villains in the comics, the film only shows him once.

In the end, the movie isn't bad. However, it's not very well-done. There are some interesting ideas that seem incomplete in the final product. These ideas aren't bad, but they are more subdued than what you'd expect from a Marvel film.

Overall, this is a movie with some great effects, though it's not too well-done. The action sequences are well-paced, and the visual effects in this movie are amazing. The fight scenes are epic, and the unique style used by this film is quite impressive.

In the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse movie, it seems like they took the inspiration from the first three movies, and then came up with something completely new. The movie has a lot of similarities to the previous ones, but it seems like it went off the rails after that. I can see why some people loved it, but I can't imagine anyone else enjoying this movie.
