YouBuyMeOJ’s review published on Letterboxd:
What is amazing about this film is that the filmmakers are aware of legacy of Spider-Man, from decades of comics and movies to rows of knockoff T-Shirts at the street market. And most importantly, the values it aspires in children to do good. When Miles is bitten by the spider, he doesn't just gain superpowers. He carries the mythos of the character's origin story in the form of the speech bubbles and voice over. That's why the most triumphant moment of the film isn't about Miles finally being able to master his powers, but also being able to carry the weight of what it means to be Spider-Man, cementing himself in history among the others who have taken up the mantle in the form of a comic book.
