Some have even called it one of the best films of the year.
“Not only is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse a great Spider-Man movie, but I think it’s the BEST Spider-Man movie. A super inventive & visually stunning action-adventure about a kid learning to be a hero from a man who forgot how to be one. It is outstanding!” Erik Davis of Fandango wrote.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is so incredibly good I’m uncomfortable using the kind of hyperbolic adjectives and comparisons I’m considering as I immediately exit the theater. But yeah, it’s AMAZING. pic.twitter.com/Lm7yU4O8pd— Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) November 28, 2018
i will have many, *many*, very nice things to say about the Spider-Verse in the morning, but anyone who says it’s the best Spider-Man movie should be forced to re-watch Spider-Man 2 clockwork orange style until their eyes melt out of their heads and manhattan sinks into the sea.— david ehrlich (@davidehrlich) November 28, 2018
#SpiderVerse is the best #SpiderMan movie since Spider-Man 2. I loved every second of it. Comic fans will geek out at all of the references, but it's also just a perfect movie for parents and kids (both were cheering in the theater).— Travis Clark (@TravClark2) November 28, 2018

Spider-man: Into The Spider-Verse is not only the best animated feature and best comic book movie this year, but one of the best movies of 2018 period. I don’t think another movie does a better job of bringing a comic book to life on the big screen. pic.twitter.com/EeDzaaoBqD— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) November 28, 2018
I can finally talk about SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE #SPIDERVERSE, and boy does it live up to the hype.— Molly Freeman 🍂 (@mollyrockit) November 28, 2018
It's got heart, humor & seriously mind-blowing animation – but it's all in service of Miles' story. Easily one of the best superhero movies EVER

Spider-Man: Into the #SpiderVerse is hilarious, emotional and just so damn entertaining. Who knew that in a year when both Disney and Pixar release quality films that Spider-Verse would top them to become the best animated film of the year. It's that good.— Mark Pacis (@PacManNR7) November 28, 2018
#SpiderVerse feels like a comic book come to life in the best way - the gorgeous art, the seemingly limitless sense of possibility. Miles is aces and I’m super here for sad-sack Peter pic.twitter.com/PNclTmtVha— Angie J. Han (@ajhan) November 28, 2018
I was fortunate to see #SpidermanintotheSpiderVerse on behalf of @HeatVisionBlog & @THR early last week, for a massive Easter Egg piece (I found nearly 90 in the film). My short thoughts:— Amazing Spider-Talk (@SupSpiderTalk) November 28, 2018
We live in the best universe, if it means getting Spider-Man films this excellent (More...) pic.twitter.com/Hwyy7SS9G7
