Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse: co-directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman made a very pure adaptation of super-hero comic books. It is an origin story, so the plot check marks the traditional beats, but the film is highly energetic, entertaining and, more importantly, the central character is a charming one. He is well-supported by a large array of Spider-Beings, very different in their smartly presented similar origins; the interplay between them is great fun and, at times, touching. The most crucial aspect is the aesthetics chosen for the animation: embracing its comic book origin, but not in the slightest making the film lose its dynamism. The action sequences are lively and thrilling as apparently only Spider-Man action sequences are, but elevated to the umpteen power since animation tears down many of the usual limits. The voice cast is doing a good job, with the many big names disappearing in their roles and avoiding any annoying excesses.
