Movie Review

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023)

I saw Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in a 141-person Dolby Cinema at AMC Theater on Thursday, June 1st, at 2:30 CT. I went with my two children, and we got three lovely posters for paying a premium to see the film. Unfortunately, we arrived at 2:33 and most likely missed one trailer.

Brief Review

This is what comic book movies should be. It is impressive what Sony Pictures did with its $100 Million budget. It genuinely feels like you are reading a comic book on screen. The art styles are awe-inspiring and constantly changing. The visuals enough would give this movie a passing grade, but the humor and storytelling make the two-hour runtime fly by.

You get an origin story, a romance, and a twist ending in one film. You grow attached to the characters, and instead of being frustrated at a cliffhanger like Fast X, you are excited to see what the studio will bring next.

I would elaborate more, but I don’t want to spoil anything. So rewatch the original, see these in Dolby Cinema, and have a fantastic time at the movies.
