“Spider-Man: No Way Home” Review Round-Up: Most Thrilling Marvel Film Since “Avengers: Endgame”

If you’re curious how the experience of seeing Spider-Man: No Way Home in the theater has been for many folks, this tweet from the editor of The Hollywood Reporter‘s Heatvision blog sums it up nicely. For a film that has broken records for advance ticket sales, it makes sense that the experience in the theater has been likened to the film that set that record to begin with. Multiple critics have compared the emotional experience of watching No Way Home in the theater to watching Avengers: Endgame back in 2019.

The third installment in director Jon Watts and star Tom Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy, No Way Home has now been seen by plenty of critics. The verdict? Watts, Holland, and the talented cast and crew have managed to craft a film that simultaneously understands the appeal of their vision of Spider-Man while placing him in unprecedented peril with a multitude of supervillains. That peril is due to two things. First, Spider-Man’s identity has been revealed (a first for a Spidey movie) and Peter Parker has found himself public enemy number one. Second, in an attempt to correct that, Peter enlists his pal Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to cast a spell to erase people’s memories, but instead, it unleashes a multiverse of villains from previous Spider-Man generations, including Doc Ock (Alfred Molina), the Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe), and Electro (Jamie Foxx).

So, without further ado, let’s have a glimpse at those non-spoiler reviews. Spider-Man: No Way Home swings into theaters on December 17.
