SPI­DER- MAN: INTO THE SPI­DER-VERSE (PG) A new con­nec­tion to the web, US, 113 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Flicks -

There have now been seven Spi­der-Man movies since the turn of the mil­len­nium. Do we re­ally need an­other one? Prob­a­bly not. Nev­er­the­less, this newie is clearly the most rad­i­cal, free-think­ing and up-for-any­thing of them all. It is also wholly an­i­mated, which could be a stick­ing point for some Spidey purists. They needn’t worry on this front, as the vi­su­als here are first-class. What drags Into the Spi­der-Verse into the mod­ern era is how it brushes long­time cen­tral fig­ure Peter Parker aside to fo­cus on a younger, hun­grier and street-smart Spidey. His name is Miles Mo­rales (voiced by Shameik Moore), a mixed-race hon­ours stu­dent who needs to get the hang of his newly ac­quired Spidey pow­ers ASAP. While this in­trigu­ing con­tem­po­rary ori­gin story has its prob­lems the in­spired de­signs never lose their ap­peal.
