Great movie for Spider Man fans only?
Spider Man: No Way Home was a movie many had been anxious to see. It is a must-see for everyone, because there is big talk surrounding No Way Home. It is a movie that should not be spoiled for anyone, by any means! New viewers should be able to experience the raw emotion. Although a superhero movie, No Way home is filled with many emotional scenes; scenes that will make you excited, mad, laugh, and cry.
The beginning of No Way Home gives us a taste into what Spider Man’s life is like with his identity exposed. That did not last long, though. Peter Parker requested for Dr. Strange to get rid of the situation. Thus, the chaos of the multiverse began. There were many ways this film could’ve played out with the concept of a multiverse, but it was brilliant to appeal to the audiences’ nostalgia by bringing back Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield to help Tom Holland’s Peter Parker. There was much excitement to bring back all the Spider Man villains as well!
There has been debate on whether viewers had to watch the old Spider Man movies and be a big fan in order to love this new movie. Cary Darling, who writes for the Houston Chronicle, shares some thoughts.
“A deft, funny and surprisingly emotional superhero adventure that manages to provide both fan service for the Marvel faithful and breezy entertainment for those who wouldn’t know Peter Parker from Peter Jackson,” Darling said.
Darling’s point of view seemed to be a popular view. However, there is an opposing view. Chris Hewitt, from Minneapolis Star Tribune, stands with the opposing side.
“It’s called ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ but a better title for this exhausting sequel would be ‘Spider-Man: For Superfans Only’,” Hewitt said.
No matter which side you lean toward, the important thing is that you saw the movie. Not seeing it would make the question, “Have you been living under a rock?” a fair question. On the other hand, if you have not seen it, and you have read this far, the spoilers may affect your emotions during viewing. That is okay. It is still a must-watch, even if you wait for it to become available on streaming services! Not to mention, there are two big after-credit scenes that introduce a whole new story plot that will keep you anxiously waiting, once again.
