The best Spider-Man has been.
Watch This NOW!
Spider-Man films have always had a chip on their shoulder when it comes to the closing chapter of a series of films. 2007’s Spider-Man 3 fumbled it, and the gone earlier than expected 2014’s Amazing Spider-Man 2 crashed in flames. There just hasn’t been that one to stick the landing. The common theme with both of those films was going bigger and adding as many villains as possible. It was a balancing act that just didn’t work for either of those enteries. Well Spider-Man: No Way Home goes bigger, it is stuffed to the brim with characters, and it worked. Spider-Man: No Way Home is the best live-action Spider-Man to date.
Its expert mixture of characters, action, and emotional moments elevates this film far beyond just Spider-Man movies. It is really up there at the top of all the MCU movies so far released. Make no mistake the action and large amount of characters push this movie to move at a quick pace but it never feels like it needs more time to breathe. Everything fits very nicely, but all of this would be for nothing if the story didn’t have a strong punch for Peter. This movie does that, again and again. There were several moments in this movie that put a tear in my eye, and there were many laughs to be had. There were moments of audience wonder and group reaction that really I have only seen in a handful of other movies period.
Suffice to say, this third entry hits every note, splashes you with nostalgia in all the right ways, and moves you emotionally like so few of the Marvel films do. It’s the best acting I have seen from MCU Tom Holland and the Spider-Man movie that for the first time in the MCU really tackles the Spider-Man question what comes with great power? Responsibility. Spider-Man: No Way Home is excellent and is one of the most fun movies of the year.
