Description: After an encounter with Gwen Staisi, Brooklyn's friendly Spider-Man catapults himself through the Multiverse, where he meets a team of Spider-Men tasked with protecting her very existence. But as the heroes argue over how to deal with a new threat, Miles finds himself pitted against the other Spider-Men.
I HAVE NO WORDS - no seriously, I don't even know how to explain to you how amazing, unique and elaborate everything looks here. Not to mention that Across the Spider-Verse is packed with so much action, characters, and little jokes that you have to pause the movie every 3 seconds to catch it all. But… ah… the creativity… here it seems like no one has limited him or put the creators in a box, which is why this Spider-Man feels so alive and energetic. The film changes animation styles, frame rates, even throws in real actors, all to create something UNIQUE. And yes, yes, this word gets thrown around a lot, but I honestly think the Spider-Verse movies are some of the most interesting and unique things to happen to animation in the last 10 years. All the movies that came out after Across the Spider-Verse will have to try hard to at least catch up to this MASTERPIECE!
Okay, let's say we throw out all the "promising" animation... and what remains... is a very high-quality and strong film about being yourself and making your own destiny. There are no comically bad characters, overwrought or nonsensical scenes where someone speaks only in clichés. To be honest, a few of the ideas seem more constructed for the parents than the kids, and the film becomes as much about Spider-Man as it is about his parents. In terms of audio mixing, the work of the voice actors, and the duration of the scenes, everything is polished to the maximum. And one thing that scares me a little is that there was already so much in this movie and it was so interestingly presented that I can't really imagine how everything can be made better for the last movie...
Okay, so let's talk about the spider in the room or the end. It's such an interesting feeling when you watch a movie for 2 hours, but you can't see the end if you can't see it. And BAM you realize this movie is split into two parts. Yes, you and I knew it would probably be a trilogy. However, the first film ended quite completely leaving room for the story to expand… here… here everything is really cut off like in the middle of the action. Technically, this does not interfere with the film and I will still count a full 10, but - First Part - the title of this film would be more indicative of the fact that I will have to wait another year until I get answers... eh...Overall - 10/10
