At the Movies: Spider-Man: No Way Home

From a reviewer with minimal Spidey knowledge


Seattle Creasy, Senior Writer

The new Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home, is the third Spider-Man movie starring British actor Tom Holland as Spider-Man. I’m going to be very clear: before I saw this movie in theaters, I had not seen any of the other Spider-Man movies with Tom Holland as the Spider-Man.

If I had any critiques of this movie, you’d be smart to take it with a grain of salt. However, I do not have any critiques. Despite me not having any of the contexts of the first two movies, I still was able to easily grasp what was happening and could infer what had happened before this movie began due to how well they covered the background.

The movie begins in a place of conflict. I won’t give too much away, but essentially Spider-Man’s identity is revealed as Peter Parker. He tries to reverse this and go back in time using Doctor Strange’s powers, but this doesn’t exactly go as planned.

As most everyone has seen through social media, the two other Spider-Men, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, make an appearance in the movie.  This was a big deal, and it’s brought attention back to the movies they made.

The only problem with this movie at all could be the very ending, (which if I spoiled, I would be a terrible person).   I’ve seen a lot of people on social media voice their anger about the ending, but I, personally, was fine with the ending and felt as though it left space open for another movie.

All in all, this movie was really interesting to watch as someone who’s never seen one in recent years. The movie was very, very well done. I look forward to possibly seeing the next one they make, which I assume they will with the teaser they gave at the end featuring Eddie Brock of Venom. I would encourage anyone to go see this movie, even if they haven’t seen a Spider-man movie before or if they aren’t normally a superhero movie fan. I give it a 5 out of 5 stars.
