The movie perfectly changes the animation style according to the different characters and also uses it to portray different emotions. For example, the scenes between Gwen and her father look like a painting, showing the confusion, agony, and loneliness in Gwen’s life through dark colors. Whereas, Miles’ scenes are more vibrant and show the black Hispanic community of him. Along with the visually stunning animation, the background soundtrack in the film hits the mark excellently and makes the scenes even more exciting to watch.

The movie offers one of the best introductions to the different Spider-People as you learn a lot about them, even with their limited screen presence and interactions.

We are also first introduced to the Indian Spider-Man, Pavitr Prabhakar. Fortunately, the film does not stereotype Indian culture and shows the fictional city of Mumbattan with vibrant colors, music, and a different style of animation.
I highly recommend you to watch the Hindi movie as each voice over has perfectly captured the essence of the characters. Also, Shubhman Gill will amaze you with his voice acting skills and he is an ideal choice for Pavitr Prabhakar.
What doesn’t work?
‘Spider-Man Across The Spider-Verse’ will seem a bit longer than the usual animated movies. However, the time of ‘2 hours and 16 minutes’ will not hinder the experience of watching this visually impressive film.
‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider Verse’ is a bigger and better sequel than its previous installment. Some exciting cameos will also surprise you. It is a visual spectacle with a perfect balance between humor, emotion and action.
