This year’s one of the most anticipated films - ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ is FINALLY here and it’s definitely worth the wait. Christmas 2021 just got a whole lot bigger!
Your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman is here to impress you with his prowess. However, this time the film is not just about the webhead, in fact, Marvel Cinematic Universe’S latest release also focuses on Peter Parker as an individual who seeks his mental peace from all his crime-fighting feats and the losses he has eventually suffered saving the universe.
Undoubtedly, Spider-man is one of Stan Lee’s best creations and there’s no denying he is the coolest amongst the arsenal of superheroes we have in Marvel.
However, let’s not forget even while being bit by a radioactive spider, Peter is still a human at the end of the day, and even he is allowed to have bad days. And from the looks of it, these situations can even get the best out of our young superhero.
Apart from exploring spiderman as a superhero, director Joe Watts has gracefully explored the dynamics of Peter’s angst and conflicts. Arguably, Tom Holland is MCU’s most successful Spiderman and Peter Parker. On the contrary, Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield have managed to convincingly fill Spiderman’s shoes.
‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ brings out the best moments of Holland’s Spider-Man tapped into that ingrained desperation to be seen and loved.
Honestly, the film is a roller coaster of emotions. Peter and Michelle’s impending courtship was finally addressed making them palpable scenes in the film. Apart from the love angles, Holland’s scuffle with the phantoms from past franchises puts No Way Home at a vantage point, knocking you with a sense of nostalgia.
However, the film is at a disadvantage in that lacks an effective premise for the villains. Yet, the film has plenty of rewarding moments such as the superheroes and their villains’ intro scenes. There are several iconic moments that would spark whistles and cheers amongst the audience making your theatre experience more lively.
This Joe Watts film rewards the fans with scenes they have been longing for the most. The film takes a thrilling turn as all the Spidermans from their respective universe face their villains.
Interestingly, watching the return of Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin and Alfred Molina’s Dr Otto Octivious - two powerhouses from the previous films - was quite an unusual treat. Their animosity towards Toby Maguire’s Spiderman fuels the entire film, giving No Way Home a chance to steer their conflict with a dramatic turn. MCU had banked great responses with the sheer idea of introducing the fans to a multiverse.
With no scepticism in play from the audience, Spiderman: No Way Home has lived up to the audience’s expectations and it can be concluded that the film is a must-watch. Packed with plenty of hilarious punch-lines to tear dropping moments, the film also boasts a hard-hitting love angle between Peter Parker and Michelle Jones.
Rating - 4.5/5
