MILES MORALES – The all-new Spider-Man
Miles Morales is a young teenager and a Brooklyn native. He’s a bright kid who’s been thrust into a new school and is having a hard time adjusting to a more rigorous academic environment. But he’s having an even harder time adjusting to his entirely new and unexpected life as a Spider-Man. With the help of some surprising new friends, Miles learns to unlock the hero inside himself.
PETER B. PARKER – Miles’ reluctant mentor
He may look like Peter Parker, but he is older and the years of superhero life have taken a toll on his body. His experiences have left him world-weary and cynical. Peter never wanted to be a mentor, but training Miles Morales to be Spider-Man helps him to regain his original enthusiasm for that identity and reclaim the spirit of selflessness for which Spider-Man stands.
SPIDER-GWEN – A super-cool Spider-Woman
An intelligent and quick-witted teenager, Spider-Gwen is the Spider-Woman of her world, an excellent fighter who can swing and flip with the grace of a trained dancer. Although tough and brave when she’s fighting the bad guys, Gwen has suffered a loss in her universe that’s made her afraid to get close to people, even to an open-hearted kid like Miles. Once she learns there are others like her, she has the opportunity to let down her guard and become part of a team who have overcome their own tragedies to become the protectors of their worlds.

PENI PARKER and SP//dr – A half-Asian school girl from the future
Peni Parker is a classic anime character, a school girl from an alternative universe with a psychic link to a spider. She’s an emotional, expressive vigilante who doesn’t wear the typical Spider-Man suit – instead, she has a mechanical, robotic Spidey suit that only responds to her DNA.
SPIDER-MAN NOIR – The Spider-Man of 1933
Spider-Man Noir, a Peter Parker from another century as well as another universe, is a more hardened version of Spider-Man who fought crime during the Great Depression in 1933. Unlike most Spider-People, Spider-Man Noir is only seen in black and white and has the 1930s perspective to match, which makes it harder for him to adjust to Miles’ modern (and colourful) world.
SPIDER-HAM – The comic relief
Meet Spider-Ham, aka Peter Porker… a cartoon pig! Spider-Ham is always the first one to crack a joke, but despite behaving like the ultimate ham, he takes his job as a Spider-Hero very seriously and fights alongside the others with own his special kind of cartoon fury.

This draws on a comic called Ultimate Spider-Man, which for the uninitiated was part of a range that were totally free of regular Marvel comics continuity, and thus could do whatever they wanted with key characters. After a while in the run, Peter Parker died, and was replaced as Spider-Man by a teenager called Miles Morales.
This is a fresh take on the whole thing. And tells Miles origin story. And then some.
Miles is a gifted student, struggling with a move to a new school. When he happens to get the same powers as Spider-Man, and then sees him die, it looks as if a superheroic destiny awaits. But of course it's as never easy as that. He has a lot to learn. Lots to measure up to. And there are others with the same powers suddenly in the world with him. Not all of them are human. If he can't measure up quick, then it's not just his universe that will be destroyed....
You will never have seen anything like this before. Because the animation really does make it look like a comic onscreen. it's incredible to look and amazingly well done. But it's not just flashy visuals. Because it's got a great script to go with it. It's the story of a young man learning how to be a hero, and it does that well. But it's also a buddy comedy. It's about friendship and responsibility. And love and loss. And so many other things.
The multiverse concept does allow for some fresh takes on existing ideas. The writing is ever so clever. And the character interaction amazing. There are some great vocal performance from those playing the other Spider folk. And it's probably one of the best bits of acting Nicolas Cage has done in a while.
Parents do be aware there's a lot of people dealing with grief in here, so there are as many sad as fun moments. Thus it might be a little much for the under sevens. And epileptics and those bothered by flashing lights will need to be careful with a few moments. But otherwise, it's great and original film making, and well worth five stars.
Do keep watching to the end of the closing credits. But don't read them, otherwise you will get a spoiler for what's there...
The dvd begins with an ad then a trailer. Both can be skipped via the next button on the dvd remote. The trailer is in the previews section of the extras anyway.
Language and subtitles on it are:
Languages: English, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish. English audio descriptive.
Subtitles: English, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Polish, Swedish.
Film maker's commentary.
An animated short featuring Spider-Ham, called 'Caught in a Ham'. A very funny five min long Looney Tunes style cartoon.
Ultimate comics cast: a fourteen min feature about casting the actors. A really good watch.
Tribute to Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. A touching nine min long tribute to Spider-Man's creators.
Spider-Man ultimate fan easter egg challenge. A five min long look at some of the cameos and other references in the film. Very interesting and will make you look at some scenes again.
Lyrics vids: pop videos for two songs that come from the film soundtrack. Sunflower and Familia. Both run roughly three mins and can be watched individually or in a row. The former is a better video, as it uses film clips. The latter doesn't.
The story centres upon young Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moored ) who struggles at school to meet his fathers high-expectations.
Miles, loves his music, loves to draw, and enjoys reading Spiderman comics.
His uncle takes him to an abandoned subway station to paint graffiti on its walls, Miles is bitten by a radioactive spider as his hero Spiderman had years before, Miles soon finds he has strange abilities but needs guidance on how they can be used.
He returns to the subway to find the spider that he'd killed after the bite to find the master criminal Wilson Fisk had built a collider there in the hope of finding a parallel dimension where he may again find his lost wife and son...........Miles realises that his hero is also at the subway attempting to prevent Fisk using the collider.
Spiderman realises that the youngster possesses some of the powers he has.
Spiderman after fighting off Fisks enforcers comes to grief at the hands of the master criminal.
The story, however, has only just begun..........
Miles will meet an older version of his hero Peter B Parker (voiced by Jake Johnson) who hails from another dimension but is more interested in eating burgers these days than being a super-hero.
Miles persuades Peter B to show him the ropes, reluctantly the older Spiderman agrees in exchange for help to steal data from Frisk's research centre, however, they run into trouble but are rescued by Spiderwoman (voiced by Hailee Steinfeld) also from another dimension who has a strange resemblance Miles's new school friend Gwen.......
The three joined by Spider-Ham as they do battle with Fisk and his allies...
After which -
Young Miles will help his new friends return to their own dimension...and himself become the worlds new Spiderman.
Have to say, this is a superb animation adventure that will I'm sure to hold your interest from start to finish.
The adventure enhanced greatly by having no limitations that the live-adventures obviously do, though of course even they rely heavily on the use of CGI to create the visual experience we enjoy so much.
A truly splendid animated tale that deserves all the praise that has been heaped upon it.
I will always be a fan of Peter Parker in the original comics. Sadly I do not recognise that character since Brand New Day in either the comics or the movies. This came the closest I really enjoy all the other Spider characters as well.
This is a true passing the torch movie. With the main character allowed to take on and step out of the shadow becoming his own Spider-man.
The interviews and Easter eggs at the end are great. If there is one thing I would change about this movie it is Spider-man get beaten up a lot. I know the theme is no matter how many times he gets knocked down he gets gets up, but Spider-man does (did) win a lot of the fight he was in. As for the Kingpin please see Back in Black part 4 to see how a fight between Spider-man and the Kingpin would play out.
A great entertaining movie with great characters and character development. I would love to see a movie with any of the characters. Definitely one of the best Soider-man movies so far.
Do you like action and adventure, regardless of subject? If yes, see above.
Do you like films to engage your emotions despite yourself? If yes, see above.
Do you enjoy having your eyes knocked out, polished and mucked about with then put in upside down and swivelled the right way up again? If yes, see above.
It's funny, engaging, emotional, and visually stunning... but all of that pales into insignificance compared with the acting. You can close your eyes and just listen, the vocal acting alone is that good: the vocal soundtrack should be a new template for how to make an audio play.
Knowing stuff about Spider Man is not needed.
If you Loathed The 300, the Sin City films and found that TinTin flick from a while back somewhat confusing (almost photoreal cartoonery, am I right?), then relax. The mishmash of styles work extremely well.
Buy it on blu ray - the extras are fun and informative.
If you hate it, give it away to a charity shop...
But you probably won't do that
In this case, I certainly can. Nuff said.
The animation takes a bit of time to get used to as it encompasses many different types of animation but it really is so well done that it really is only a few moments before you are used to it, the story and characters have actually been well thought out and the inclusions make perfect sense, to say too much about the plot is to ruin the film, but it presents many different Spider-man twists and turns on the familiar.
Highly recommended to fans of Spider-Man and anybody who just likes a really good film.
For the price of these 4K Blu-rays you'd expect them to be good quality. Your results might vary.
I was watching this on my big screen and noticed some scenes would dim and then revert back to its original colour. Initially i thought my projector was going but when i rewind back to the those particular scenes the same thing happens again which means my projector is fine but the Blu Ray is faulty. I tested this on my LED TV and the same thing happens there.
The added extras and alternate universe version of the film is great and recommended. As mentioned by other users its a shame there is no 3D version available yet.
I have returned this to Amazon now due to the picture quality issues and will wait for a new release (with 3D) before purchasing again as this movie definitely belongs in my collection as a keeper.
While the story is fairly standard, I have to rate this film 5 stars just for standing out. I hope Sony and many other studios follow suit in this films footsteps and experiment with cinema and the animated medium.
how good? The boy (9) shut up the ENTIRE way through it on the big screen and on blu ray. that's right. a 9 year old SHUT UP for the entire length of a film.
