                                                       ‘Spectacular Sequel’

It’s always necessitated battle-Garfield companies s-Parker-ling powers to portray web-slinging superheroes with great responsibilities Mag-acquired through history. Following Sony Mag-acquiring Spider-Man amidst 1990’s, World Wide Web’s transformed battle-Garfield for fans investigating which companies merit ownerships over Holland-mark superhero. For instance, Marc Webb’s far-from-amazing “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” enraptured Mary-Jane-lized web-slinger into ha-Lizard-ous cobweb of Oscorp-orate rivalries. Under-Stan-dab-Lee, from Oscorp-orate perspectives tractions hasn’t Peter-ed out in superhero weaving long-lasting 1960’s cobwebs. Unlike Banner Avengers, Spider-Man’s commonly caught Hawkeyes of Daily Bugle newspapers run by poi-Jameson-ous editor as high-school adolescent mentored by Ben-evolent over Hulking au-Thor-ities amidst Endgame. However, one gets Spidey-senses Peter’s inability stopping high-Octane trains amidst raindrops falling on heads is inadequacy of Maguire-nificent celebrity. Despite Ma-Nicholson celebs’ Ledger-dary character, depicting Spidey’s no laughing matter requiring Joa-Quinn-tessential actors carry expectations on shoulders battling Pennyworth butlers. If great powers surmise great responsibilities, Sony’s seldom treated m-Otto seriously in hypocrisy. As “Spider-Man 3” proved third time’s rarely charm for venomous hero. Nonetheless, Strange doctor argue Ancient One hero 2023 expiry (Kim, 2021) imply Wong. Could Spidey swing cities?

Now, friendly neighborhood’s back and spins Maguire-ical cobwebs bringing hero s-Parker-ling finalities whose great powers introduce great responsibilities on battle-Garfield in Jon Watts’ blockbuster “Spider Man: No Way Home”. Action-packed, nostalgic and sweeping, it proves Oscorp-orate companies not seeing eye-to-eye culminates Spidey goodbye. With trilogy-caper, Watts swings Mary-Jane-lized franchise satisfying conclusions. Boasting marvelous action-sequences, ingenious story and phenomenal performances, it’s swinging achievement. Although “No Way Home’s” unforgettable, it’s problematic. It’s overlong, weaving tangled adversaries. Nonetheless, it offers exhilarating entertainment for Spidey fans.

Amid New York, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” chronicles superhero’s journey under Strange sorcerer’s prophecies after Mysterio-us adversaries publicize identities. Tom Holland exemplifies Peter Parker, teenager endeavoring alter-identity-disguising. After Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) recommends extinguishing identities’ memories, Peter’s over-the-moon. However, magic backfires following multi-dimensions’ encroachment. As Peter Mag-acquires adversaries, he discovers identity.

Jon Watts’ always succeeded weaving Homecoming backstories’ webs for s-Parker-ling hero Far From Home. Following critical acknowledgements with “Spider-Man: Homecoming”, Watts’ become fantastic filmmaker expertly spinning Spidey cobwebs. His first web-swinging blockbuster “Homecoming” investigated superhero’s adolescence-years balancing high-school responsibilities with saving world from Vulture-ous adversaries. With “No Way Home”, however, Watts constructs superhero finale. It’s Watts’ first endeavor spinning Spider-Man’s expedition satisfying conclusions harmonizing together multi-verse dimensions’ iterations, but he accomplishes Maguire-nificently. Through spellbinding cinematography, Watts weaves web-slinger’s journey battling news-worthy scrutiny following adversaries publicized identity discovery. Evoking Christopher Nolan’s “Inception”, Watts expertly uses zero-gravity techniques evoking Peter’s struggle separating reality from fantasy. Recalling Cobb’s dream-escapisms, hallucinatory cinematography exhibits Peter’s psychological-state. If “Homecoming” portrayed Peter’s life as walk in ball-Parkers childish “Sky-High” high-school specials, Watts addresses burdens. Along photographer Mauro Fiore, Watts captures turmoil. Watts honors Peter’s great responsibilities, making theatrical-viewing.

If web-swinging superheroes don’t magnetize attentions, however, there’s plenty reasons to experience “Spider-Man: No Way Home”. Watts successfully demonstrates Spider-Man’s communions through slow-motion. Whereas “Spider-Man 3” attracted Goblin-smacking outcry clinging sandy venomous CGI wall, Watts avoids problems. It’s intimidating coalescing together innumerable Spider-Men without confusion, but Watts knocks out ball-Parkers. Commemorating Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers”, Watts expertly employs slow-motion choreography exhibiting communions between Spider-Men sharing common purpose. For instance, slow-motion’s weaponized particularly successfully during Statue-of-Liberty’s battlefield sequence. During s-Parker-ling sequences, different generations’ superheroes coalesce together in teamwork defeating Electro-fying adversaries. One acknowledges slow-motion weaving together Spider-Man heroes’ relationships in starkly Avengeful au-Thor-ity evoking “The Avengers”. Watts weaves cobweb between old-fashioned Spider-Men homage and modernized interpretation. Furthermore, Sanja Hayes’ costumes deserve acknowledgement. Evoking Richard Donner’s “Superman”, Landm-Clark disguises showcase Peter Parker’s double-life. Through dazzling productions, Watts honors web-slinger.

Another exceptional “Spider-Man: No Way Home” component’s screenplay. McKenna’s screenwriting strength’s aptitudes avoiding damsel-in-distress conventions constructing multi-layered female characters supporting Spider-Man. In Marvel’s comic-book blockbusters, beauties are commonly marginalized as damsels-in-distress whose one-dimensional purpose’s crying-for-help emancipations. This cultivates minimal sympathetic engagements, perpetuating misogynistic Spider-Man misunderstandings. As exemplars, Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” personified women as Mary-Jane-lized victims dependent heroes being Goblin-ed by adversaries. Fortunately, however, Watts judiciously avoids previous Spider-Man’s misogyny. Emulating Gary Ross’ “The Hunger Games”, Watts creates compelling female character whose purposes extend Tobey-ond girlfriend. Like Katniss Everdeen’s audacity experiencing archery assisting poverty-stricken family in Hunger Game tournament, MJ learns opening alternate realities portals pivoting Peter. If previous incarnations reduced MJ to damsel-in-distress, finally she participates on Battle-Garfield. Through inspirational inclusivity, Watts reward hero whose choice leading 21st Century misogyny life isn’t manageable feminist reimagining. In genre reducing women as Mary-Jane-lized damsels-in-distress, it symbolizes feminism representation. For franchise clinging to sticky surfaces of misogynist walls disparaging Mary-Jane-lized beauties, course-correction symbolizes feminism progress. Through sensitive screenplay, Watts celebrates heroines.

One appreciates Spidey-tacular performances.
Tom Holland delivers career-accomplishments performance as Spider-Man. Following web-swinging establishments in “Homecoming”, Holland’s become Holland-mark movie-star portraying s-Parker-ling superhero’s adolescence. With “No Way Home”, however, he finally demonstrates vulnerability. It’s intimidating bidding web-slinger hero goodbyes without tearful eye, but Holland accomplishes deftly. Evoking Michael J. Fox in Robert Zemeckis’ “Back to the Future”, Holland essays Mc-flying teen on time-travelling missions averting past interfering future. With riveting expression, he captures angst, courage and resentments of hero’s far from home journey against scrutiny. It’s fantastic web-slinging superhero farewell.

Supporting cast’s charming. Zendaya’s magnificent, emoting sympathy as Mary-Jane-lize teenager sacrificing life through zealous courage safeguarding Spider-Man’s Daily-Bugle-grabbing identities. Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are match made in heaven, evoking Maguire-ical bygone Spider-Man nostalgia. Concluding, Willem Dafoe’s unforgettable. As Goblin, he’s ab-Norman-ly scary.

Conclusively, “No Way Home” deserves appreciation for meeting fans’ expectations celebrating Spider-Man incarnation. Recalling J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, Watts goes Skywalker-ing heights towards es-Chewie-ng fans’ Lukewarm Spider-Man criticisms. While Spider-Man incarnations under-Stan-dab-Lee attracted inevitable comparisons with previous interpretations, Watts gives incarnation equal consideration. Accordingly, “No Way Home’s” satisfying fan-service at finest.

Despite universal appeals, however, “No Way Home” weaves tangled electro-less enemies’ web below Justice League of Tha-nosey adversaries Banes of existence for caped crusader confined in pits through snapping fingers in Infinity War of comic-book movies. Assisted by Michael Giacchino’s energetic score, Watts catapults movie at engrossing paces amidst first hour. However, once blockbuster enters conclusion, it’s steamless and tests viewer patience. Extended running-time appears nore appropriate for Infinity War between stark superheroes and on-the-Thanose enemies (ex. Russo Brothers’ “Avengers: Infinity War”). Moreover, sequel lacks compelling villains. Watts’ decision integrating six villains from different universes’ bold and innovative, but doesn’t work. Barring Green Goblin, enemies scarcely shine. Whereas villains raised Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” from baneful ashes, they exist seemingly for sequels. Hence, blockbuster falters.

Nevertheless, comic-book fans will enjoy “No Way Home” as will movie-goers seeking enjoyable entertainment. A Spidey-tacular franchise’s farewells, it illustrates s-Parker-ling heroes deserves redemptions without Venom-ous company intervention. If Holland-mark heroes’ leg-Stacy lies in tangled web of Oscorp-orate companies in battle-Garfield infrequently employing great power with great responsibility Tobey-ond Mag-acquiring profitability, its time Sony discerned Spidey-sense giving raindrops-falling-on-head hero torn amongst squeaky-clean costume and venom symbiote web-slinging despite Strange sorcerer with Doctorate in fortune-telling prophecies from Ancient One universities pre-Benedict-ing Clown adversaries essayed by Joaquin-essential celebrities without Ledger-dary reputations are doomed tragedy according to two-face presi-Dent-ial politician coin flip without batting eye in criminalized-riddled Dark Knight cities.

4/5 stars
