Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who met at Dartmouth College, wrote the film, which won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film. According to Rotten Tomatoes, the movie “matches bold storytelling with striking animation for a purely enjoyable adventure with heart, humor and plenty of superhero action.” It received a 97 percent rating.
The movie introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.
The Atlantic film critic David Sims wrote in a December 2018 review: “The latest entry in a fully saturated genre that somehow, through sheer creative gumption, does something new.”
Lord and Miller are known for directing and writing the animated films “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” and “The Lego Movie,” as well as directing the live-action comedy film “21 Jump Street” and its sequel.
