Spider-Man: No Way Home full Movie

Listen, there are no spoilers in this review of Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Spider-Man: No Way Home

Thanos isn't the most powerful villain in Marvel-timber: It's your friendly, if occasionally grumpy, neighborhood movie critic. She's also the harshest, but that's fine. Her abilities are insignificant.

Marvel has long since rendered its product line critic evidence, thanks to its army of true believers and dominance of both movie theaters and click-baiting media. Its films open, suffocate and regenerate (repeat). With "Spider-Man: No Way Home" it now has a film that evaluates evidence as well. Your critic can describe you with a range of adjectives — colorful! Amusing! Corny!— I can't disclose much about what happens, though.

The idea is that speaking an excessive lot would ruin the laugh here, as the spoiler police insist. Of course, it wouldn't. The trailer and improved visibility have already revealed a lot of information.

Even more than his super-ability to weave webs and swing by a thread, Peter's childlike good nature has always been his most productive weapon. He's always been a sweet, cute boy who attracts the sweetest, most lovely girls (Kirsten Dunst, Emma Stone). On the other hand, Holland is the most convincing of the three moist-eyed boy-men who have played Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield).

Zendaya, who was paired with another of this year's adolescent saviors in "Dune," is now his love interest.

Zendaya's casting as MJ and expanded role in the series continue to pay off, and her charisma and gift for selling emotions (and silly dialogue).

Returning for duty is director Jon Watts, who has shown to be an excellent match for the material, partially because he understands that Peter is an adolescent, albeit one with a peculiar holy-virgin aspect. (Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers wrote the script, which is part brand expansion and part celebrity roast.) Although their relationship is warmer than sensual, Peter and MJ kiss and nuzzle, no doubt as a concession to the film's intended market of younger people.

(Watts splits the screen in one sequence to show Peter and MJ on their phones in separate beds, a technique that was employed to emphasize, though teasingly to put doubt, on Doris Day and Rock Hudson's virginity back in the day.)

There is a story here, but what this "Spider-Man" film really has is a brilliant setup that tightens the Marvel universe's expanse with the help of one of its MVPs, Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).

It begins with a loud bang and the revelation of Peter's secret identity, which dramatically alters his life and sets in motion a series of reunions, battle sequences, and emotionally charged scenes. Spider-Man gets a lot of mileage during the film because, like almost every Marvel production, it's too long and, at two and a half hours, it's overstaying its welcome. However, the film snaps and pops nicely before that.

In part, it does so because of a vast cast of actors, notably Marisa Tomei (as Peter's Aunt May) and Jacob Batalon (as Peter's best friend, Ned), who fill in the gaps between the bouts with emotion and personality.

The casting in the Spider-Man films has frequently been as important as, if not more important than, the general components, as in any successful franchise. Great actors like Willem Dafoe and Alfred Molina, two of several series veterans making comeback appearances, can warm up industrial material merely by their presence, even at their chilliest and PG-13 meanest. They smooth out rough edges, sell humor, shatter hearts, and contribute to the tonal consistency of the film.

It'd be interesting to see what Watts could achieve if he weren't limited by Marvel's rigorous framework, which gives the studio's films a distinct genre identity while also making them more similar than not. (The Spider-Man cycle that began with Maguire in the role was not part of the Marvel movie universe until the first to star Holland, due to intricate economic issues.)

It would be interesting to see a more complex Peter, among other things. After all, the world is in shambles, and it would be fantastic if Peter's immense power and a deep sense of responsibility could be channeled towards larger battles, such as the fight against climate change. Greta Thunberg won't be able to achieve it by herself.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is rated PG-13 for graphic violence based on comic books. 2 hours and 30 minutes of running time. In movie theaters.

Sony Is Taking Action As Spider-Man: No Way Home Spoilers Start To Leak

If you're a Spider-Man fan who's looking forward to all of the huge blockbuster action in Spider-Man: No Way Home, you'll have to be extra cautious on social media in the coming days. While many people who have already seen the movie are being courteous by not sharing secrets online, some lack character, decency, and respectability who are out to ruin the experience for others (and for no apparent gain). For what it's worth, it's an annoying part of being a movie fan in the internet age.

Because Spider-Man: No Way Home was released a few days early in several overseas markets, pirated versions of the film have begun to circulate, including spoiler-filled excerpts on YouTube.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, some Internet leaks have disclosed up to ten-minute pieces of the movie, but the studio is taking steps to remove the footage from the internet. This entails decommissioning steps that result in screens displaying the notice.

 "The video is currently unavailable. This movie contains copyrighted content from Sony Pictures Movies & Shows, which has prohibited it in your country."

Fans who have been waiting patiently for Spider-Man: No Way Home to hit theaters won't be surprised by this news, as they've been required to pull off spoiler ninja maneuvers for months.

While there are few things better for cinephiles than being completely surprised by events on the big screen, some internet users have felt compelled to play "Spider-Man detective" in 2021 and try to wheedle out certain revelations that the filmmakers and stars behind the film have tried to keep hidden. Beyond simple and juvenile impatience, it's unclear why they wish to destroy the movie for themselves and others.

The Spider-Man: No Way Home marketing campaign has gone to great lengths to discourage this type of internet behavior, even enlisting actors Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Jacob Batalon to record a piece politely requesting that some movie fans refrain from actively attempting to spoil the film for others. The following is a link to a video:

It feels like a lifetime has passed since the film was released, but Spider-Man: No Way Home is currently just hours away from hitting theaters in the United States (and it looks like it is going to have a big opening weekend).

The film, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Marisa Tomei, Alfred Molina, Willem Dafoe, Jamie Foxx, and others, will begin showing in theaters around the country tonight — and you should absolutely return here to CinemaBlend for all of our detailed coverage following your screening.
