“Spider-Man: No Way Home” SPOILER Review


“Spider-Man: No Way Home” has been released for a little over a month now. Due to this, spoilers have been going around like crazy. Now that the film has been out for a while, it is time to look back on the movie event of the year. If you are one of the few people who has not seen “Spider-Man: No Way Home” yet, go watch the film and come back later as this review will contain major spoilers!

The film picks up right where the last film left off with J. Jonah Jameson (JK Simmons) revealing Peter Parker’s identity as Spider-Man to the world. The initial aftermath was resolved rather quickly by none other than Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox). This was the first of many fun cameos in this film, and this was the first time Cox has reprised his role since Daredevil’s third season in 2018. After the legal troubles were resolved, multiversal chaos ensues, including the additions of previous Spider-Man villains.

The cast of this film was truly something special. Each actor had their own time to shine, especially with Tom Holland’s performance as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Peter went through a lot of emotional and physical trauma from the film, and Holland really delivered in his performance in order to bring something unique to the character. 

Speaking of Spider-Man actors, the arrivals of both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield into the Marvel Cinematic Universe have shocked audiences worldwide. Both Maguire and Garfield have reprise their roles as Peter Parker/Spider-Man from their respective movie franchise universes. Upon rewatching their respective films, it feels as though they never left. Both actors have brought their own unique traits into the character, and this can definitely be seen within this film. Every scene with the three Spider-Men talking with each other was a treat.

However, there can be no heroes without their villains. The villains in this film were also really great. The standout villain was Williem Dafoe’s Norman Osborn/Green Goblin. Dafoe has brought such charisma to this role, and this film really doubled down on the fear factor of the Goblin. Doctor Octavius (Alfred Molina) and Electro (Jamie Foxx) were also great additions to the cast and had fun moments of their own. It seems as though Lizard (Rhys Ifans) and Sandman (Thomas Haden Church) were underused, but that was mostly due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, even they had pretty menacing and funny moments throughout the film.

The story of it all was also fantastic in terms of a Spider-Man story. The film focused so heavily on Peter stepping up and accepting the responsibility that he was given, even through his loss and struggles. It is the journey of overcoming those troubles and trying to live a normal life. Tom Holland portrayed that really well and that is evident upon the film’s conclusion. 

As for the future of the Spidey franchise, it seems that the Venom symbiote is lingering around in the MCU after a hilarious mid-credits scene. It is possible we can see Spider-Man face off against Venom in a future film. Fans have been clamoring for this feud for years, so this will definitely be something to look forward to. 

Overall, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” was truly a spectacle of a film. The story and cast were definitely the biggest highlights of the film. Have you seen the film? What did you think of the surprises and ending? Let us know in the comments below.
