I absolutely loved it. I wasn't really prepared for how much it's a Mile Morales movie with some other guys popping up later, but it's just a stunning film on every level. So much fun. Hilarious. Jake Johnson was born to play Peter Parker and everyone else in the cast is superb as well. Lily Tomlin's Aunt May in particular was just like... give HER a movie.
Great post-credits scene, I hope we get the (presumably inevitable) sequel. Ideally about now.
If I had one complaint (and apparently I do) it's the Kingpin. Everyone else looks great, but Fisk... the whole movie is all "ho ho, a cartoon pig" but the most comical thing in the movie by far is the ludicrous Kingpin design. He's a size and shape that just doesn't fit - it's absurd in a bad way. If they'd just dialled it back a bit they could have had the effect they were after without going over the top.
Brilliant nods to many Spider-Man eras, a heap of cute mashings-up of its cinematic identity and its comic book roots. Just so good. Can not wait to see it again, though... have to I guess. T-T
