Don Reviews "Spider-Man: No Way Home"
The internet has changed a lot of things, but specifically it has really affected spoilers for all types of entertainment. Before things like Twitter and Facebook, you had to wait for school or work the next day to get the information, but today it is a totally different. Things are starting to turn around as I have recently heard that some people are quitting Twitter due to the number of spoilers that people are posting for the film I am about to review, but trust me on this: this is a safe space where we pride ourselves in being spoiler-free.
“Spider-Man: No Way Home” is again directed by Jon Watts and brings back Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon, along with Benedict Cumberbatch and JK Simmons. Starting off after where “Far From Home” left off, Mysterio has revealed the identity of Spider-Man as Peter Parker and Parker begins to be demonized by both the press and public. After it gets to the point where he and his friends cannot even get into the colleges of their dreams, Peter reaches out to Doctor Strange to go back and have history changed to the point where his identity is not revealed to the world. After the spell goes awry, past villains from other universes like Dr. Octopus cross over into his, and Peter now has to deal with the consequences of the choices he has made in order to save our world and all of the others.
This has the cinematography and CGI you can expect from most Marvel films, and it doesn’t disappoint. Also just like the other MCU films, this one has a longer run time of two hours and thirty minutes, which waws about fifteen to twenty minutes longer than I would like it to have been. With this film having the same director as the last two films, it really kept everything consistent (even though the last one was not one of the MCU’s best), and even though I really did like the overall story, it did get just a tad confusing in some areas. This script is a rollercoaster of emotions and action, and that is a really good thing here. I know that I am working in a lot of generalities in this review, but there is so much great stuff that I don’t want to spoil and with Spider-Man being one of my favorite superheroes since my childhood days, this one makes up for its past shortcomings big time! If you are an MCU fan, I think you will really enjoy this film, and I will definitely recommend “Spider-Man: No Way Home” as a twilight showing in the theaters.
