Spiderman: No Way Home

With Spider-Man’s identity now revealed, our friendly neighborhood web-slinger is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life as Peter Parker from the high stakes of being a superhero.
Just when you think “Spiderman” has been through enough, reality strikes again with another blow, this time of his own making. I can’t remember the last time I simply enjoyed a film so much that the inner child in me sprung out as it did when seeing “Andrew Garfield” and “Tobey Maguire“.
All the memories from the first Spiderman came rushing back to me and hit me hard like a tsunami wave. I can’t recall how many times I had to pull back my tears during this movie. It embarks off so jolly and upbeat I couldn’t imagine any of the things that happened to play out like that.
Tom Holland certainly had to face the truth of carrying the name – “Spiderman”. You can’t have it all and expect to live happily ever after, with or without magic you can’t run away from your problems when you’re faced with them up close and personal. Sure you saved the whole world from the Thanos crisis however that doesn’t give you a green card to do whatever you want when things seem stacked against you.
What I loved about this film was the personal growth Tom Holland’s Spiderman had to face, the reality that his identity has to be hidden even from the ones closest to him. Most importantly the scenes that finally had me bursting into tears were when Andrew Garfield saved Michelle from falling to her death as he’s “MJ” Gwen did in “The Amazing Spiderman 2” and when Tobey Maguire stopped Tom Holland from killing “Norman Osborne” without saying a word.
Both these scenes have so much value and depth to them as they were able to re-write their biggest regrets. Tobey not saying a word to Tom Holland when stopping him from stabbing Norman with his glider is so portrayed so beautifully, you could tell from his silence that he has already gone through this once and that was not worth it.
The only disappointment I found in this film had to be the fight scene at the end, though keep in mind that the purpose of this film was not to defeat the villains in the usual fashion but to save them from themselves. 
I’m just saying I would have appreciated having a super cool moment when the villains displayed some kind of growth with their powers, especially “Electro” played by Jamie Foxx as he stole “Iron Man’s power source and yet didn’t look as intimidating or display powers superior to “The Amazing Spiderman”. I loved his humor though when he realized that he was nearly dead from overloading lol… I can’t hate Max.
Who would have thought that “The Green Goblin” would become the most dangerous adversary in this film, DAMN? Norman Osborne is a menace to society for having two personalities and not knowing which personality is currently in control is what reminded me of why Tobey Maguire let this man kill himself with his glider.
Sandman is the anomaly in this film, his presence feels out of place especially when you take into consideration that all the other villains have some kind of Scientific background aside from him. Norman Osborne was a scientist, Dr. Otto Octavius was a scientist, all these scientists fell from grace for their unbound devotion towards their work and it takes one scientist to save another.
Can we have a round of applause for the enormous, talent that was in this cast? I mean look at all the names in this film, it felt like a “Captain America – Civil War” cast all over again, magic everywhere. The visuals of the film are truly spectacular in every scene, you can tell that a lot of work has gone into the making of this film. Can’t wait to see how this leads into the next Doctor Strange movie.
Thanks for reading…
