In Review: A Nine-Year Old’s Take on “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”

We’ll be posting a review of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse from Tim Robins on downthetubes soon, but meanwhile, here’s the view of one of the Spidey’s younger fans, Oliver J. Soto…

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse PosterThe Film: Bitten by a radioactive spider in the subway, Brooklyn teenager Miles Morales suddenly develops mysterious powers that transform him into the one and only Spider-Man. When he meets Peter Parker, he soon realises that there are many others who share his special, high-flying talents. Miles must now use his newfound skills to battle the evil Kingpin, a hulking madman who can open portals to other universes and pull different versions of Spider-Man into our world.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse PosterThe Review: I’ve been waiting a few months to see this movie because it is about Spider-Man and has a bunch of other Spider-people. I thought it was really good and cool to meet all the other Spider-people in the Verse.

The graphics are all good and pretty much makes you think you are in a comic book. Miles was a cool kid and good at music. It helped calm him down and unstick from walls after he got his spider powers.

Number one fact: Kingpin is fat with no neck. He is a bad dude. He wants to kill Spider-Man because he thinks he killed his family. Kingpin wants to use a machine to bring his family back from another dimension.

I would definitely see it again and want to take my dad. Anyone that likes comic books, and You Tubers should see the movie, because “People love Spider-Man”!
