Spidey home for Christmas

It’s always difficult to rate a Marvel movie by delivering on the company’s promises. Every time a new Marvel movie comes out, they promise it’s bigger and better than the last one. Like all promises repeated sometimes they keep and sometimes they don’t, but trust me, you have to believe the hype when it comes to “Spider-Man: No Way Home”. Not only does the film offer a new level of epic, but it’s a film that is sure to become a fan favorite … maybe Marvel has finally found a way to create a movie true fans will love while continuing to love it. make that elusive male cinema.

You’ve probably heard a lot of the buzz on the internet by now about things that will or could happen in this movie, but don’t worry, we’ll try to write this review in a way that doesn’t mention anything that you don’t. have not already seen. in a trailer or poster … and we’ll try to be vague but informative about things you haven’t seen yet.

Directed by Jon Watts (Cop car), the film resumes within seconds of the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home. Peter Parker (Tom Holland – The impossible) identity was exposed to the world by Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal – Somnambulist) and online reporter J. Jonah Jameson (JK Simmons – Whiplash).

Not only that, but Peter Parker finds himself under investigation for Mysterio’s death and it seems the world is turning on him. He turns to his support network of Aunt May (Marisa Tomei – Wrestler) and Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau – Chief) for support, but when the impact of the investigation affects him, his girlfriend MJ (Zendaya – Dune) and his best friend Ned (Jacob Batalan – Spider-Man: Homecoming) in a major way, he decides that something needs to be done.

Peter then turns to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch – The power of the dog) for help, but the resulting spell has catastrophic ramifications. Suddenly Peter and his crew find themselves in battle as enemies of the multi-worm country in New York led by Doc Ock (Alfred Molina – Boogie evenings), Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe – The card counter) and Electro (Jamie Foxx – Horrible bosses).

What Jon Watts has created here is a very special movie for comic book fans. If you are a casual Marvel movie fan you are going to love this movie, but if you are a diehard Spider-Man fan you are going to love this movie because it is something so special that the only one to describe it is. is that this is a film that is unique in a generation.

There are some very special moments in this movie for true Spider-Man fans, we’ll leave it there so that there aren’t any spoilers, but that’s how everything else comes together in this movie that takes it to the next level.

In a way Watts and screenwriters Chris McKenna (Ant-Man and the Wasp) and Erik Sommers (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) manage to wrap a lot of stuff in this movie without making it feel cluttered or let it slip past its welcome. They also bring the right mix of things to the movie – nostalgia, epic action sequences, characterization, and just the right amount of humor. They pretty much made the perfect comic book movie.

The result is a film that sometimes makes Spidey fans gasp throughout the film – and during the screening we attended, there was even some cheering and screaming during some of the movie’s big reveals, and it’s something you rarely see in modern times. daytime cinema.

It also feels like the actors here know they are acting in something special. We know that Tom Holland is something special since his performance in The impossible, but here he takes his acting to a whole new level. He’s almost forced to do this as Willem Dafoe walks into the movie with his A-Game.

There are too many special moments in this movie to mention and a lot of them would be spoilers, so the best thing is that this is a movie that Spider-Man fans are really going to embrace. and worship. This is the only time that Marvel has offered something very special to comic book fans around the world.

Spider-Man: No Path Home opens in theaters in Phuket on December 23 and has yet to be rated.
