SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME is the ninth SPIDER MAN 21st century movie (not all MCU movies in which the character appeared but did not have his name in the title). This is the third SPIDER MAN film starring Tom Holland as the young New Yorker web-sling, as well as the third directed by Jon Watts. These could be collectively called the RESIDENCE trilogy, as the previous two are called SPIDER-MAN: RETURN HOME (2017) and SPIDER-MAN: AWAY FROM HOME (2019).

Spider-Man, aka Peter Parker, was one of the people who disappeared from existence by the alien Thanos in AVENGERS: WAR TO INFINITY. Fortunately, thanks to the Avengers, Peter and the rest of half of the universe that was deleted were found to exist in AVENGERS: END OF THE GAME, although they returned five years after leaving. A slightly disoriented game but still, Peter then fought alongside the Avengers to defeat Thanos.

Peter, still trying to figure out that he had missed five years, took a trip to high school to FAR FROM HOME. He was to save the world from Mysterio, who revealed Peter’s secret identity.

Like SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME begins, Peter, his family and friends are all feeling the pinch of this revelation. Many angry citizens have sided with Mysterio, and even those who like Peter take hero worship too far.

Peter has neither the ego nor the resources of his late mentor, billionaire Tony Stark. Peter doesn’t want accolades, and he doesn’t have the money to escape the sometimes literal bricks thrown at him.

When unfair consequences hit Peter’s girlfriend MJ (Zendaya) and his best friend Ned (Jacob Batalon), he decides to do something. Wouldn’t it be great if people could forget that they had already heard Peter Parker and Spider-Man were the same person?

In his adventures with the Avengers, Peter met the wizard Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Peter asks Dr. Strange for help. Ever since they went through wars together, Dr. Strange has been inclined to do Peter a favor. Except that Peter has a few caveats, and the spell ends up going awry.

Beyond that, it is difficult to speak of the following with any specificity. Very broadly speaking, Peter faces a moral dilemma that fits very well with the overall Spider-Man ethic. Describing it would give too much detail about the game, but writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers have found a very respectable way to keep both the audience and the characters emotionally engaged.

Arguably there is a huge amount of action, some very well designed and well staged, and others plagued by gloomy CGI issues in night scenes and over-fast editing. The motion capture performance is wonderful, and these characters blend in perfectly with fully live-action actors.

Holland has charm and integrity, and Cumberbatch convincingly makes Strange irritable and uncomfortable in their bonding moments. Zendaya and Batalon offer strong support, and Marisa Tomei has a warm conviction as Peter’s Aunt May. There are other standout actors here, but they probably shouldn’t be mentioned to anyone who hasn’t seen the movie yet.

SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME also has a lot more humor than we might have expected. According to his level of interest to discuss SPIDER MAN over the past twenty years some of it has been called funny laughing till tears roll. There are scenes that can actually be scripted, but where the actors seem to fall out, improvising entirely within the character.

It’s delicious, and it’s also well deserved. It’s the sort of thing that wouldn’t work without the decades of history and hours of film that came before, and so most movies aren’t able to try it out. the SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME filmmakers seize opportunities. They manage to dramatize much of what we think without breaking the fourth wall.

SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME honestly discusses the topic at the heart of many stories across genres: what it means to be a good person. At the same time, its idiosyncratic aspects arouse real joy.
