New York Post
It’s the best stand-alone film to feature the iconic character so far. [3.5/4]
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” represents some of the best superhero storytelling on the market.
The film’s wild and contradictory aesthetic – elements of which clash against each other like some kind of dissonant cartoon jazz – dazzlingly explodes the outmoded idea that superhero movies have to look a certain way. [B+]
What distinguishes “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” in the end is that it takes its mission seriously, even when it’s being transparently silly.
A free-wheeling, fast-and-loose, strikingly animated addition to one of the biggest library of films in the Marvel collection.
Spider-Verse has plenty of small delights, and it looks unique. [B-]
It’s a slightly insane, hilariously daring and often touching mashup of everything that makes super-flicks so darn popular with the introduction of a Spider-Man who’s ready-made for today’s generation of kids. [3.5/4]
