Spider-Man: No Way Home Review: Jon Watts has directed the story written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers. Based on Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal have produced the film. It stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau and Marisa Tomei. The additional cast includes Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx, Thomas Haden Church and Rhys Ifans.
The synopsis reads, “For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighbourhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home Review Contains No Spoilers
As the synopsis and trailer explain, Peter Parker is not happy that the world has gotten to know that he’s Spider-Man. His identity reveal not only affects him but also his loved ones. Peter decides to seek help from Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Strange agrees to help but Peter’s constant interruptions tamper the spell. Well, it leads to a multiversal mess and evil visitors from different universes make an entry one by one.
Spider-Man not only has to deal with the reality that the world knows who he is, but he also has to battle the big baddies. These villains are Doctor Ock, Electro, Lizard, Sandman, and Green Goblin, as seen in the trailer. Peter has a lot riding on his ability to contain these dangerous invaders. How is he going to save the world once more? What price he will pay for the disaster he unintentionally caused? Will he be helped in any way? In those 148 minutes, everything is shown.
Given that this is the final instalment of the Homecoming trilogy, Marvel has gone the extra mile. It includes elements that will make fans clap, cheer, and cry happy tears. The film exceeds all of our expectations and screams blockbuster. Everything is masterfully packed together – Tom’s Spider-Man, Doctor Strange’s wizardry, the villains’ arrival and fight scenes, the twists, action and grief.
The story could not have been more perfect for Tom Holland. Peter is vulnerable and devastated, and he must learn that with great power comes great responsibility. Tom Holland is brilliant throughout, particularly in the emotional parts. Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin laughter still sends shivers down the spine after all these years. From beginning to end, he’s terrific and terrifying. The rest of the actors do an excellent job in their roles.
It’s difficult to go into more detail without giving things away. But don’t worry, I’m not going to give any spoilers. No Way Home is a magnificent conclusion to the Homecoming trilogy. It invokes a wide range of pleasant and tragic feelings and is an incredible experience. The cinematography is excellent, especially during fight scenes and in the mirror illusion scenes. With so many villains, the fight scenes can sometimes be a mess. But cinematographer Mauro Fiere has done a great job of capturing everything finely.
