Amazing, but with one serious flaw

The art style is mind-blowing, like a comic book come to life.The easter eggs and shout outs are so plentiful that trivia-driven fans will be kept occupied for hours figuring them all out, while the story is compelling enough for those of us who are fans of the themes and storytelling of the genre. Excellent use of the origin story motif to draw the parallels between the different Spiders, and they were smart about the use of the "out there" characters, enough to help use relate to them, but not so much as to make them annoying. Miles and Peter B. Parker are characters whose relationships and personal issues are stunningly real. It makes it easy to connect to the characters and care about what happens to them.

All that said, if you have photosensitive issues, this may be the worst movie I've seen in a long time. (I'm sure there are others, I just haven't seen them). I get what they were going for, but I didn't feel like that amount of flashing effects was required to accomplish their goals. Even pre-medicating, I ended up with a migraine. I loved it, but I won't ever see it again on the big screen, and not sure I even would on a smaller one.

I\'m not photosensitive, but even the start of the movie was a bit too much flashing for me. They could\'ve afforded to turn it down a few degrees. :p
