“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” represents some of the best superhero storytelling on the market.” — William Bibbiani, The Wrap
“This is the seventh Spider-Man feature film in 16 years, but this universe has rarely felt so fresh. “ — Jesse Hassenger, AV Club
“The film’s wild and contradictory aesthetic -— elements of which clash against each other like some kind of dissonant cartoon jazz — dazzlingly explodes the outmoded idea that superhero movies have to look a certain way.” — David Ehlrich, Indiewire
“A free-wheeling, fast-and-loose, strikingly animated addition to one of the biggest library of films in the Marvel collection.”— Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
“Just when you thought you couldn’t take another Spider-Man reboot, along comes the movie to put them all in perspective.” — Peter Debruge, Variety
“It’s the kind of superhero movie we absolutely need, with good people doing good and reveling in it, the way Spider-Man always should.” — Kyle Anderson, Nerdist
