Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (8/10)

If you read this Web site with any regularity (in reality that means nobody), you know that I am not a fan of superhero movies. The whole concept of superheroes is corny and when they try to make them serious it’s just lame. Treating the subject as a kid-friendly fare is a much better approach, especially since Spider-Verse goes full-on animation. The exaggerated fantasy style just works (despite the annoying, intentional low-frame rate). In the end, it’s just another origin story but with a comical, meta sensibility. Still nowhere near as good as The Incredibles but a worthy effort.
