Animated Superhero Action: A teen must not only contend with accidentally becoming the next Spider-Man, but also with other varied versions of Spider-Man showing up via a dimensional portal.
Miles Morales (voice of SHAMEIK MOORE) is a young teenager growing up in Brooklyn with his African-American cop dad, Jefferson (voice of BRIAN TYREE HENRY), and Puerto Rican nurse mom, Rio (voice of LUNA LAUREN VELEZ) who enjoys spending time with his Uncle Aaron (voice of MAHERSHALA ALI). But during one such outing down in the bowels of the subway system, a radioactive spider bites Miles who initially thinks nothing of that. But the next day things have literally and figuratively gotten sticky for him, such as when he tries to impress his classmate, Gwen Stacy (voice of HAILEE STEINFELD), but gets his hand stuck in her hair.

When he eventually realizes what's happened, he returns to the scene of the initial bite, only to view Spider-Man (voice of JAKE JOHNSON) battling both an enormous Green Goblin and another villain known as Prowler (voice of MAHERSHALA ALI). Both are working for top villain Kingpin (voice of LIEV SCHREIBER) who's attempting to open a portal into other dimensions via an enormous collider he's had built. He ends up killing Spider-Man, and thus Miles is shocked not long after that to run into the web-slinger again, albeit older, paunchier and more than a bit disillusioned, what with always getting beaten up and having been divorced by Mary Jane (voice of ZOE KRAVITZ).

It turns out another version of Spidey -- we'll call him Spider-Man 2 -- got sucked from his dimension into Miles' and he becomes the young superhero's reluctant mentor of sorts. But he's not the only alternate version of Spider-Man to travel through that dimensional portal.

Among others are Spider-Woman (HAILEE STEINFELD); porker Spider-Ham (voice of JOHN MULANEY); anime superhero Peni Parker (voice of KIMIKO GLENN); and the black and white, 1930s style Spider-Man Noir (voice of NICOLAS CAGE). With Kingpin now also employing Doc Ock (voice of KATHRYN HAHN) for his dimensional portal plan, it's up to the various Spider-Man characters to stop him, all while Miles tries to figure out how to get all of them back to their various dimensions.

They probably will.
For frenetic sequences of animated action violence, thematic elements, and mild language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
