Emma Carpenter

Critics have favorably reviewed Tom Holland’s third solo Spider-Man film, calling it a “celebration of Spidey fandom.” Spider-Man: No Way Home currently holds a 95% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes from 152 reviews.

Since its December 17th release, the film has been extremely popular and tickets have been selling like crazy. This movie is packed with action, emotion, and surprises. So far, critics have said “A bigger, bolder Spider-man sequel, No Way Home expands the franchise’s scope and stakes without losing sight of its humor and heart.” For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his super hero responsibilities into conflict with his every day, personal life. When he asks Doctor Strange to help him restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing all the villains Spiderman has fought in every universe. Peter now has to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will forever alter his own future along with the future of the Multiverse. 

Audience members of all ages have expressed their love for this movie. A Senior at Shore Regional stated, “That movie was so good. I was sad, surprised, and excited to see what happened. It was a great movie and I want to go see it again.” The emotion that the audience got from this movie was all over the place and Marvel threw many emotional curveballs into this movie that the audience was not necessarily expecting. A Junior stated, “I was completely caught off guard with some of the surprises in this movie. It was an amazing film and Marvel did a great job of throwing in things that fans would not necessarily expect.” Marvel was able to pack a serious punch and include many twists and turns in this two hour film.
