Review: ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ is the Best Spider-Man Movie So Far

Yes, it’s a bold statement, but it’s true. Spider-Man: No Way Home is the best Spidey movie made so far. And not just in the MCU. Director Jon Watts returns after a somewhat disappointing Spider-Man: Far From Home to a more risky No Way Home, relying on some help from the past.

No Way Home picks up right where Far From Home left off. Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhall) has just revealed Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) secret identity. 

As Peter returns to school and life, he realizes he’s now the most famous person in the world. With that new notoriety comes problems for his loved ones including girlfriend MJ (Zendaya), BFF Ned (Jacob Batalon), and his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei).

He’s followed by news cameras, helicopters, and paparazzi. Not everybody loved your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. People blamed Peter for Mysterio’s death, and this controversy also led to rejections to numerous colleges for him and his friends, putting their futures at risk.

Desperate to help MJ and Ned, Peter goes to Doctor Strange and asks him to perform a spell to make the world forget he is Spider-Man.

However, with this plan comes consequences, once Peter remembers that, well, maybe not everyone should forget he’s Spider-Man, and the spell goes wrong.
