  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: The movie is lithe, fleet and thoroughly engaging. Basically, it never idles long enough to be pinned down by anything, to mostly positive effect.
  • Caio Bogoni @ Cine Grandiose [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Splendid, groundbreaking, intente visuals still are not enough to omit some script problems.
  • Andrea Chase @ KillerMovieReviews.com
    • Excerpt: reinvigorates both animation and the super-hero origin story.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Persistence has finally paid off with this frequently rebooted franchise – not only is this one of the most enjoyable “Spider-Man” movies to hit the big screen, it’s one of the most dazzling animations of the year.
  • Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
    • Excerpt: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a bright and bold loving critique of the superhero genre and a much needed hard reset.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: It’s not just one of the all-time great superhero movies, it pushes western animation to bold new places.
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
  • Vadim Grigoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: Proves that when creativity and innovation are fully engaged, there’s always room for another Spider-Man episode.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Has a verve rare in big-budget movies at the moment. Fun and fresh and legitimately engages with its source material on the levels of story, visuals, and mythology all at once. It feels like discovering storytelling anew.
  • Wesley Lovell @ Cinema Sight
    • Excerpt: Outside of the occasional “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” Sony Pictures Animation has been sitting at the nadir of feature animation since its earliest days. With “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” they’ve finally hit on a formula and a format that could presage a brilliant re-invigoration of their brand.
  • Dan Lybarger @ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
    • Excerpt: Throughout Into the Spider-Verse, there’s a sense the filmmakers blanketed the screen with everything they had. Look in the background, and you’ll see that a noodle shop is dubbed “Romita’s Ramen,” after a Marvel artist who made the Wallcrawler his own. Thankfully, Persichetti, Ramsey and Rothman have done the same.
  • Joel Mayward @ Cinemayward
    • Excerpt: Amazing. Spectacular. Sensational. Superior. Simply put, it’s a perfect film.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: Your mind will be blown and your eyes will be dazzled.
  • Ross Miller @ Thoughts On Film
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: For too long the studio has attempted to bring an old origin tale to whatever present their film was being made. Finally the current generation exists onscreen as more than a layer of polish atop the last.
  • Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is the best movie about the web-slinging, fast-talking wall-crawler in over a decade.
  • [New] | Nuno Reis @ SciFiWorld Portugal [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: O filme tem de tudo um pouco e tornou um argumento que podia ser de um episódio da série, numa obra extremamente completa que funciona em cinema.
  • Ruben Rigaud @ Cocalecas.net [Spanish]
  • Diego Salgado @ Guía del Ocio [Spanish]
  • Tusshar Sasi @ Filmy Sasi
    • Excerpt: Purely in terms of what one expects from a template that is ever-so-familiar, ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ contains crackling animation, a commendable storyline and is, hence, a timely tribute to Stan Lee.
  • Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
    • Excerpt: With its pitch-perfect voice casting, jaw-dropping animation with vibrant colors, and an excellent screenplay that has thrills, humor, and heart, ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ is a stunning animated achievement worth taking a swing on.
