Opinion – “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is the best movie ever. (Slight Spoilers)

A small overview of the record-breaking film.


Valeria Marquez, Staff Writer

Peter Parker has hidden his identity from the whole world while being Spider-Man. Until now.

The movie starts immediately where “Spider-Man: Far From Home” left off. Peter’s identity is revealed and things are starting to get crazy. People start to throw accusations and Peter gets nicknamed many things such as, “Spider-Menace.” After a life-altering decision that was made based on wrong information, Peter seeks the help of a certain Avenger who resides in the Sanctum Sanctorum, for some help. When Dr. Stephen Strange agreed to put a spell on the world, making everyone forget that Peter Parker is Spider-Man, something else went wrong. The spell didn’t go as planned because of poor preparation, but Strange contained it before anything bad could happen to their universe. Or so they thought. When Peter went to ask someone who could fix his current problem, a previous villain showed up. Many more started piling in and things went from there.

**Slight Spoilers Ahead**

Spider-Man: No Way Home is the best movie ever. Let me explain.

Since 2019, many of us Marvel fans have been waiting for the next Spider-Man sequel and I can’t say I’m the slightest bit disappointed. It was truly cinema at its finest. I think the movie was very anticipated and that put a lot of pressure on the actors and actresses but they executed it perfectly. The movie itself had earned more than $1.53 billion worldwide, making it the eighth highest-grossing movie ever at the global box office. The website Rotten Tomatoes, has given the film a 93% on the Tomatometer and has a 98% audience score with over 25,000 reviews. NWH has been nominated for 30+ awards and won quite a few of them. Clearly, it’s a movie you should go watch.

With a running time of 2 hours and 28 minutes, this movie provides humor, action, a shocking amount of plot twists, and at some points might make you cry like a baby. No judgment though, because, so did I. Actors and actresses Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon, Zendaya, Jon Favreau, Marisa Tomei, and more, did an outstanding job with their roles in this movie.

I would like to start my opinions off by saying that Marisa Tomei was the best actress that could play the role of Aunt May, Peter’s aunt. She truly understood the script and played the role perfectly. She performed with such articulation, art, and skill that is unreplaceable. “With great power, there must come great responsibility.” She said it outstandingly and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Another thing that was truly exceptional, was the CGI. It was very realistic and I would say that it was better than all the previous Spider-Man movies. As for a few of the villains, I wish we had more screen time with the “TASM” ones. The plot was amazing and I didn’t have a hard time understanding anything. A “really good lawyer”‘s appearance made the movie much better along with a few more special characters. The reason I can’t compare the comics to the movie is that I didn’t read them, though I would like to sometime in the near future. The end-scenes weren’t really relevant to the story but were fun and I recommend staying a while after the movie ends and watching them.

As a Marvel fan myself, I don’t want to continue describing the movie part-by-part because spoilers for these kinds of movies are the worst. It’s a wonderful experience walking in and not knowing what you are going to see. I hope you guys have liked or will like the movie as much as I do!

If you expect disappointment, you will never get disappointed. And yes, the multiverse is real, Peter.
