Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse ★★★★★

As I've stated previously, I'm not really into superhero movies and I rarely watch animated films, so Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse was a bit of a leap of faith for me. However, I wanted to see it prior to the Academy Awards to judge whether the significant hype surrounding the film was justified.

I'm delighted to report that it is - If ever a franchise begged to be reinvigorated via the animation treatment, this is it !!

The story is everything you want it to be: intelligent, funny, thrilling & poignant in equal parts and the characters are well-rounded and engaging.

The animation is absolutely stunning, perfectly reflecting the comic book origins of the Spider-Man tale.

If Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse doesn't win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature it will be an absolute travesty!
