“‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” is an interesting movie, perfect for kids who like action and comedy. For kids who like comics, Marvel or action figures, this has something for you too.

It begins with a kid, Miles Morales listening to his favorite song through his headphones. It’s his first day in a new school, but he really doesn’t want to go. Miles had a tough time leaving his friends. One night, Miles visits his Uncle Aaron and they spray paint the walls of an underground sewer. While he’s there, he gets bitten by a radioactive spider. Then he witnesses a crazy scene where villain, King Pin kills Spider-Man! Before Peter Parker, aka Spider-man, dies though, he asks Miles to destroy the portal into the multiverse.

All of a sudden, Miles’ hands start sticking to walls, papers and even a friend’s hair. Miles tries to be a superhero with these powers, but he can’t use his webs. Good thing Spider Gwen, Peter Porker, Spider Noir and Penny Parker come to Miles’ dimension, aka the present, to help Miles figure this all out. In order to defeat King Pin and return each Spider-thing, the group has to work together, and remember even when times get hard to “always get back up.”

Here are our thoughts on the movie:

Miles is my favorite character because he got bit by a radioactive spider and he still was able to act like a normal kid. I loved that he had superpowers and could climb walls.  – Grace

Spider Gwen is my favorite character because she wasn’t afraid of any of the bad guys. She was brave and fearless. – Katerina

Miles is also my favorite character because he is the one who stopped the multiverse portal from sucking all of the dimensions together. He saved New York City! – Matthew

Spider Noir is my favorite because he was hilarious and very good at blending in. I really liked when he found a Rubik’s cube and couldn’t solve it because he was only able to see black and white. – Kian

The best part of the movie for me was when Miles was swinging through the city fighting crime. I liked that because I got to see the bad guys trying to get Spider-Man. I won’t give away anything about the ending, but this part was action packed and had loud music. – Matthew

The coolest part of the movie was when Peter Parker hands Miles a big wooden hammer and says, “Here, take this, it should fit in your pocket.” Miles takes it, even though it’s way too big. This was funny because it obviously wouldn’t fit. It made me laugh. – Grace

Finding Aunt May and all of Spider-Man’s suits in a secret shed was my favorite part of the movie! I couldn’t believe the little shed held so many cool Spidey things inside. What a surprise! I liked that Aunt May was cool too. – Kian

I loved when Peter Parker introduced Miles to all the different Spider things, especially Peter Porker (the Spider-Ham). Oink Oink! It was cool that there was more than one spider thing! – Katerina

As you can see, there are many parts to this movie that you would enjoy. The animation is amazing. The music is wonderful and the story is funny and exciting.
