This looks like the Spider-Man equivalent of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm in terms of being good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tg52up16eq0

Shockingly the reviews are right. This is in fact the best Spider-man movie that's been made so far, and up there with the top-tier Marvel movies. It's got the balance of humor and heart that the Guardians of the Galaxy movies and Thor: Ragnarok have and it was clearly made by people who understand and love the character in all his/her iterations. Plus it's good all ages stuff as well.

I was a little concerned about the art style going into it, but it works really well and there's some stuff over the first part of the end credit's that's mind-blowingly good. I think a lot of folks here will find it completely worth watching.

Best Spider-Man movie ever, definitely. Maybe the best comic-book movie ever. The visual work is mind-bogglingly smart and good--it's both cinematic AND invokes the storytelling style of comics in some really thorough, unique ways. Plus great character work, a smart story that even people who haven't read comics can follow. Just a great love poem to Spider-Man specifically but comics generally.

P.S. stay to the very end--the first post-credits scene is moving; the last is hilarious.

Well worth the money, I took my 10yo daughter and 8yo step daughter to this and we all walked out happy. It worked on so many levels.

This was so very good.

The douchebags behind me bitching about the mid credit sequence, not so much.

This was excellent.  Not only is it clear that the people behind it love Spider-Man, but comic books in general.  It's not uncommon to watch comic book adaptations and feel like the film makers are ignoring, if not running away from, their source material.  But that's not the case with this movie at all and it improves every aspect of the film.

This is also getting a sequel and a spin-off so we're in for more.

The Positives
This movie was perfect
The Negatives
This movie is perfect. Makes me wonder why it wasn't made sooner

Oh and this movie officially fixes miles morales. Will comic books take note? No because he is too busy being a b-character in a ms.marvel-khan book. But whoever wrote this movie basically rubbed their nutsack all over the last 10 years of comic book writing for miles.

Though hilariously Bendis is on Miles' frequent caller list early in the movie.

It's really pretty much almost the best comic-book movie ever.

Instant top-tier superhero movie.  The final post-credits scene was hilarious.

This movie was good, and really well made.

Not being a comics fan myself I think I missed a lot of what makes it great for some of you, though.

I can only think of one, but as usual it's the story ;  I think the plot suffered very much from 'Oh Noes, We've Got In The Way Of Ourselves on the Way to this Easy Solution'.  Also, Kirk Spiderman went out like a Bitch.

(But these are as minor nitpicks as you can possibly get.  Also, see Bumblebee right after this movie.  Or before.)

My minor nitpick was I saw it in 3d. Which is great for most of the movie, but the shots of the city when the collider was going off were fucking near seizure inducing. Lots of flashing and graphic effects that were apparently amplified by the 3d part. Lots of folks who saw it in 2d said it wasn't bad at all. So yeah. Pretty minor.

Any chance anyone knows who did the awesome "the choice is yours" mashup that played during the graffiti scene? the official soundtrack just has the original song.

Just saw this yesterday with my niece and nephew. It was absolutely fantastic, the animation style was fabulous. As noted early, it really made Miles work as a character.

My six year old niece was very enthralled with Spider-Gwen, although found Kingpin "Scary". :)

Pretty much every take on every character was fantastic, including the villains. I loved how they varied everyone's animation style yet made it fit together seamlessly -- like say the way they handled Kingpin versus Green Goblin.

The Liv character was very, very well done. :)

As someone not familiar with the Miles Morales universe, I was legitimately surprised by the  and she became one of my favorite characters after that point.   The character design and aesthetic by itself made me love her.

I didn't follow the Ultimate Universe that closely, but I don't think she's actually a previously introduced version of Doctor Octopus--I think she was created entirely for the movie. There was a female Doctor Octopus in the comics for a little while, during one of those periods where Doctor Octopus was "dead" (but I don't think his more recent "death" that led to him being Spider-Man for a while) but I don't think she's the template for the movie one. The movie character was in fact great--I also really liked her look and role in the story.

True, but what I will say is that I am rarely surprised at any movie anymore and that was one I didn't see coming, so I was like 'Hmm, cool'.  Meanwhile, wife and daughter on either side were like 'HOLY FUCKBALLS, WHAT THE SHIT'.

So it IS kind of a moment.  Or maybe I just wasn't paying attention earlier. I am old.  why so serious?

They own Spider-man, the character is just licensed to Sony for movies (and video games I guess). Obviously I'm sure we all understood this already, but point being that it is in a lot of ways still at least a partial win for Disney. And while I love the MCU stuff this is absolutely the kind of movie that wouldn't have been made under Disney/Marvel under their current business model (much like they wouldn't have made Logan or Deadpool). It's a good example of why I'm not anxious for all the properties to end up back with Disney.

This just came up in On Demand here, and I have to say you are all correct, possibly the best comic book movie to date. It was well enough crafted that I was actually enjoying the "pre spiderman" story of Miles to the point that I was kinda disappointed when it had to end to get on to the "real" story. Loved all the drastic shifts in style. They managed to make a trans-dimensional story make sense and easy to follow, and they actually made Peter Porker work within the whole thing. Hoping to see a sequel.

My daughter—who is 15 and of course hates everything just because—sat and watched through this a second time tonight.  Swearing she didn’t like it but she didn’t budge during the whole thing, and I watched her giggling thru the whole show.  Not that she would ever admit it.

Particularly Spider-Ham, she loves John Mulaney. (She does admit that—barely)
