The rating for this movie is high, up there with many thinking it is the best thing since sliced bread. I do not think so. I got tired halfway with the idea of I have seen all these before, maybe not in the spider-man form, but another form of time-traveling movies and multiverse situations. The, I want everything to remain the way it always has mindset, and I am ready to switch side from being a good guy to one who is ready to do anything to stop another good guy from doing what feels right, just felt like a reused idea. It was like I was watching all form of superhero or good guys against his own kind movies at once. There is always the one who believes their own path will be different, so they will go up against the norm. Then there are always the others, some picking sides with the one who wants everything to be as it is and the others who just want to see the other guy try. Heroes against heroes is not something new, neither is heroes against the bad guys, but if that was the case using the same plots we are used to, I will dislike it too. I love when movies do some spin to what we know, not just playing the same game we all know how it ends.

This multiverse thing can be annoying, but that is the age we are in now. Both DC and Marvel are in the multiverse craze, and I, for one, feel like I have seen it all before. So, when people go crazy about the idea of someone thinking they can travel to another dimension and be the father replacement of himself when the he in that dimension dies, I sighed.

That said, the animation in this movie is just amazing, as you would expect. The way they interwove all the spider-men from many universes together is something I always look forward to seeing.

The animation story starts with how Gwen Stacy, from the first movie, joined the whole multiverse team. Then we delve into the new villain, which is hunting Miles Monroe. I call him spots, and he can move about by creating portholes. He wants to be stronger and has in mind to make Mile’s life a living hell in retaliation for his situation, which he believes is all Mile’s fault.

Gwen comes back to Miles, but we soon see that she was on a mission to make sure that the things set in line do not fail and everything concerning the Spider-Men of the many spider-verse remain intact.

The moment Miles hears the plan of all these Spider-verse variants for his future, he revolts and tries to break free to save himself and family from a future of hurt.
