Review:  Spider-Man: No Way Home

Director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: No Way Home, released on Dec. 17, 2021, cleverly hits on a variety of emotions. There’s a sense of urgency that follows you to the end. There’s anger that is stopped multiple times from being followed by rash decisions, and a sense of deep sadness right smack dab perfectly in the middle of the movie.

In the movie, villains begin to discover their hearts, and second chances are abound in opportunities throughout. Action definitely has its part, and comedy found its true calling. Ultimate sacrifices are being made for the greater good of humanity.

Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man is one of the many complex actors of this movie. One minute sad, the next serious, then next thing you know he’s happy and making everyone laugh. He definitely has had his fair share of life’s experience as shown throughout the movie.

Of course, Aunt May (Marissa Tomei) is supportive throughout the entire movie. Everything that she’s going through she puts aside for Peter (Tom Holland), and it costs her everything. Loving Peter is more important to her than her own life. Rarely do you find such an astonishing role model who also covers as a mom and is still just about the happiest person you can find.

The ending will leave you understandably disappointed, with a realization of the true meaning of love between humans and sacrifices, not for yourself, but for the better of others. Overall, it’s a movie I recommend everyone watches at least once.
