Film: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Running Time: 1hr 57mins
Last week we went to Cineworld, Basildon to watch the new Spider-Man film, ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’. The plot line introduces Miles Morales, a teen struggling with a over-protective policeman Father who despises Spider-Man, who gets bitten by a radioactive spider whilst graffiting an underground station with his rebel Uncle. Throw in an unsuccessful Peter Parker, the man who had it all and lost it, Spider-Woman, an undercover potential love interest, Peni Parker, a Japanese take with a robot depicting the link with the Spider, Spider-Man Noir, Peter Parker of the Great Depression & you have a great film!
The film is cleverly anchored around the endless possibilities of who can wear the Spider-Mask and features clever references to the original Spider-Man films, which us adults can happily relate to. Think the infamous ‘Spider-Dance’ & clever plays on the ‘Spider-Man’ persona including ‘Peter Porker’, a spider bitten by a radioactive pig!
The graphics are unreal, I was happily fascinated with how good the film was, the plot line is gripping & the soundtrack featuring Post Malone is great listening too! *adds to Spotify*
It’s a must-see for little ones, you don’t need to of watched previous ‘Spider-Man’ films as the plot flows easily and takes you on trips down memory lane to jog and inform you the background.
Despite being a PG, I didn’t see anything that upset me. Frankie was entertained and bewildered by the film throughout, he didn’t even get up for a toilet break, that’s how good it is!
‘Into the Spider-Verse’ is also the first Marvel film to win an Oscar for best Animation, if it’s good enough for the Oscars, it’s good enough for the tots! & of course Stan Lee makes his famous appearance, as he does in all Marvel films!
We saw it at our local Cineworld, which offers weekly screenings of junior films for discounted prices from just £2.50. The line up changes weekly so check your local cinema listings to save than pay the earth for a trip! It’s a great way to get the little ones used to the big screen and you don’t have to worry about them making a noise as all parents are in the same boat! Cineworld – Movies for Juniors.
