Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is now on home release. Here’s what the critics said


Did you miss Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse at the cinema? Or, have been hanging out to rewatch it at home?

Given that the film is now on DVD/VOD, we thought we’d interrupt your regular broadcasting to remind you how freakin’ well this movie went down.

To say that Into the Spider-Verse (directed by Bob Persichetti and Peter Ramsey) was a hit with critics is an understatement.

The film is sitting on a whopping 97% Rotten Tomatoes approval rating, making it one of the most critically acclaimed superhero movies ever made.

Flicks’ own Liam Maguren’s five star review included the following words:

“As a superhero film, Into the Spider-Verse is a superb shakeup. As an animated feature, it turns the whole production into something masterful, though calling it a “comic book come to life” doesn’t fully emphasise this film’s most eye-wateringly remarkable achievements.”

And Luke Buckmaster, also writing for Flicks, said:

“This intensely energetic movie belongs to an exciting modern movement…These recent films offer thrillingly contemporary ideas that go beyond post-modernism (the so-called “culture of quotations”) and intertextuality (the relationship between texts) into a narrative space incorporating multi-dimensional elements.”

Looking for something to watch over the Easter weekend? You could do worse. A lot worse.
