Jan (Age 12): ★★★★1/2

"I really enjoyed this film!!! The animation was amazing!!!! Miles Morales was cool, Peter Parker was pretty good, Spiderman Noir (had the best suit in my opinion) was great, Spider-ham was cringe (in a good way), Gwen was okay, and Peni was mediocre. I loved the way the put a cartoon animal, an anime-style character, and a normal 3d character, in the same film without it looking strange. The only bad part of this movie is that 'uncle Aaron' was the prowler, this confused me, why was he working for Kingpin?

Kingpin was a weird character as his head was sticking out of his chest!?!?!!

Overall, a cool film, I can't wait for 'Spider-Man across the spider-verse'."

Stewart: ★★★★★

"Outstanding animation in this extremely cool Spider-Man film. Great character design and has a great mix of emotion and thrills which is what the best Spider-Man films do. A daring and exciting spin on the Spider-Man movies."

Meanwhile there's more fighting animals in Kung Fu Panda.
