There was so much right with this. Into the Spider-verse definitely lived up to the hype and I'm now wishing I'd gone to see it in theaters. The soundtrack was amazing. The animation style - including all the differences when the different Spider-People came together - was unlike anything I've seen before. I found myself getting lost in analyzing how cool the animation was quite frequently. And true to Spider-Man, I found myself legitimately laughing out loud. Seriously good Spider-Man movie.

A hip-hop Spiderman, with animated graffiti art and a rap soundtrack. Lots of fun! (I say that, knowing full well that hip-hop is a movement that's about a lot more than just "fun".) The plot gets a bit muddled (what exactly is Kingpin hoping to accomplish with that giant particle accelerator, anyway?) but the characterizations of the main characters are well-rounded, and the animation is cutting edge. In fact the animation is cutting in several edges; different styles of animation are mixed (some don't even appear until halfway through the movie). Yet it has the feel of a comic book. (Or several comic books; this is the multiverse, after all.) Various pop-culture references ("Easter eggs") are thrown in for humor and recognition (there may be several Spiderpeople in this alternate dimension but there's still THAT!). Many of these go by so quickly that you have to watch it again to catch them (the Hitchhikkers Guide to the Galaxy ones are obvious, but kudos if you notice the Banksy). And, like the greatest superhero movies, it doesn't take itself too seriously. Thoroughly enjoyable. ...And I should mention that the title might be a pun; it's a spidery part of the multiverse, yes, but is it also a realm of poetry, at least in the soundtrack?

The animation is amazing. It's like watching a comic book, with the text blocks and perspective changes and boxed shots, etc. Frankly, the story and the ending were a bit convoluted for me, but the view was magnificent. If for no other reason, this movie is worth checking out for the smart visual delight of it all!

That was great! Beautiful animation, great characters, great references, funny moments, poignant moments, and just... wow! Loved it and could not recommend it enough.

Taking animation to new heights, Into the Spider-verse combines bright colors, jagged lines, and multiple animation styles in a way that makes it truly feel like a comic book brought to life. Story line is solid, and promotes the underlying message that anyone can make a difference and be a hero, anyone could be Spider-man.

Hands down my favorite movie of the last five years. I loved it so much, I saw it 3 times in theaters

Surprisingly far better than you would expect for an animated superhero film. While it definitely has it's darker moments, I would honestly say it's slightly more of a heartwarming comedy than a typical superhero movie. Miles's endearing interactions with his family were as much a part of the plot as the "gain superpowers and save the city"-standard superhero plot. And that isn't even mentioning the comedy of Miles interacting with the alternate universe Spider-characters. Especially his reluctant mentor, the broken down alternate Peter B. Parker and his crush, Spider-Gwen.

Another big plus is the animation style. Visually, the movie is unlike any other animated movie I can think of. It's done in a way that blends colorful comic-style pen and inking with cgi, and the results are incredible. The scene cuts and word boxes also make it feel like you are watching a live action comic book, which may explain why it's animation style won an Academy Award. Even if you aren't a big fan of superhero movies, you'll probably find yourself enjoying Into the Spiderverse.

To put it mildly, this is a triumph for animation. And also for story telling! Even a person who doesn't like Spider-man would enjoy this movie, just from the technical point of view. It is quite a show.
I have been watching superheroes animated movies since I can remember, and without a doubt, " Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is the BEST one ever.

Outstanding film! Really funny, with heart. Great animation as well, feels like you're watching a comic book popping up at you.
