“Spider-Man: No Way Home” Review

Best Marvel Movie of All Time


The Marvel movies have made a big impact in the world of cinema, but for a month none have been as successful as “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” This movie was one of many that Marvel fans have been waiting on for a long time, and the movie excelled at making fans leave the theater breath taken with shock.

No Way Home truly was exceptional overall not just to fans, but also in the box office. The movie made $1 billion dollars in the first two weeks of its release and became the most successful pandemic movie thus far. The movie is also the 8th highest-grossing movie in the world, just above the first Avengers movie. 

This movie took fans on an action-packed adventure after the events from “Spider-Man: Far From Home” where Spider-Man, once again played by Tom Holland, watches a video on a jumbotron in Times Square from the Daily Bugle with a message from Mysterio, which reveals Spider-Man’s identity as Peter Parker and accuses him of murder. As Peter Parker sees his face on the jumbotron uncovering his identity to the world, his whole world gets flipped upside down. Now it’s Spider-Man’s mission to prove to everyone that he is a hero. 

As Peter Parker struggles to persuade that he is a hero, he goes to Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, to help him get the public to forget that he is Spider-Man. Strange, being a good friend to Peter during “Avengers Infinity War” and “Avengers Endgame”, noticed how Peter’s struggling with his identity being exposed. Peter asks Strange if it is possible to make a spell where everybody loses memory that he is Spider-Man. Strange agrees to help Peter make the spell, but in the middle of  Strange’s incantation, Peter has an epiphany that the whole world will forget, including his friends MJ and Ned, his Aunt May, and Happy Hogan; as such, he tries to get Dr. Strange to change his spell at the last moment. When Strange casts the spell, it fails and brings villains from the multiverse that were once defeated by Spider-Man. 

The multiverse was definitely the most significant part about this entire movie because it revolved around the entire movie with Peter Parker trying to find these villains from other worlds. When Peter encountered these villains they all saw him in his Spider-Man suit, but the villains did not see the same Peter Parker. These villains came from other worlds and in their worlds their fates ended with Spider-Man. Peter wanted to prevent that from happening so he attempted to cure some of these villains. However, while he was trying to cure them, they all turned on him and killed his Aunt May. Peter, having the feeling of giving up after watching his aunt die, goes to his friends MJ and Ned, who encounter two other Spider-Mans, played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, who came from the other worlds some of the villains were from.

One of the best scenes of this movie that brought many fans jumping out of their seats was when Maguire and Garfield’s Spider-Man show up. The scene was so perfect that it enlightened fans ten minutes after the death of Aunt May and many knew that with the three Spider-Man’s, these villains were going to be taken down. However, Peter wanted to still cure these villains instead of killing them and bringing them back to their worlds with Maguire and Garfield in peace. For the movie to bring back Maguire and Garfield to play Spider-Man let alone fight together with the help of Tom Holland really made this movie bring joy to viewers. It made fans bring up so many flashbacks to when they played Spider-Man with many memes and scenes from their movies coming to No Way Home.

The best part of this movie was that they were able to bring back many villains from some of the original Spider-Man films. Actors Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, and Jamie Foxx reprised their roles as the three comic favorites the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, and Electro, respectively, in this movie. They played such a big role in this movie being the villains and they did not disappoint. So many fans were thrilled to see them on the big screen, especially junior Nathan Alvarez- who saw the movie the day of its release. 

“I thought it was really cool how all those villains came together,” Alvarez said. “I especially liked the scene where Doc Ock came in on the highway because it felt like a very surreal action-packed moment.”

The action in this movie was phenomenal all throughout. All the fight scenes brought us back to the good old days from the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield movies of Spider-Man. Everything from the fight on the highway between Spider-Man and Doc Ock to the final fight scenes between the three Spider-Mans and their many enemies at the Statue of Liberty was a treat to many audiences who paid to see this movie in theatres. 

“The part where the three Spider-Men were swinging around the Statue of Liberty felt so awesome,” junior Tyler Shelton said. “It was so nostalgic and literally gave me goosebumps to see them all fighting together.”

Aside from all the action, No Way Home had a great romance between Peter and MJ, played by Zendaya. Zendaya played such a key role as this movie’s heart and soul, and she excelled at giving a very good and authentic performance. The comedy from characters such as Ned Leeds, Jacob Batalon’s character, provides plenty of laughter to keep the viewers hooked. 

The movie ended with a lot of emotion and pleasure from fans and succeeded at giving us a well-deserved ending to the movie. With Spider-Man fulfilling becoming the hero once again and saving New York. In conclusion, this left fans with a smile on their face when they left the theatre.
