The lead up to the movie was joyful, with everyone speculating whether or not Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire were actually in the film, with some fans saying no as at the time of recording Spiderman: No Way Home, Andrew was recording a Netflix show called Tick Tick Boom! Same with Tobey, however it was just saying he wouldn't go back to this. The excitement leading up to the movie was amazing for me as I read a lot of news articles, saw a lot of leaked images and even a leaked photo of the final fight. To my "surprise" both were in the movie!

Spiderman: No Way Home lived up to the expectations and more so than I thought, as I wasn't too keen on the other instalments of Tom Holland's Spiderman films compared to Tobey and Andrew's however this one movie made up for all that and made the storyline from all three more exciting for me.

The movie started where Far From Home left off, with Peter Parkers identity getting revealed and him getting taken by the police and put into questioning, however the scenes leading up to him going to Doctor Strange were great and perfectly timed too with one funny moment that occurred with Ned Leeds admitting he was Peters "guy in the chair"!


Building up to the first major scene with Doc Ock, it was amazing to see how things changed because of one "controversial news website". Goes to show what one moment and one bad placement can do to anyone. Pretty much implying that one man can change the way someone can look at you. For example Quenten Beck managed to change how everyone looked at Peter Parker due to his drones! This didn't stop Peter however. The attack with Doc Ock and the fight scene was displayed amazingly.

The fight overall to me with the first encounter was performed amazingly and used all of the uses of Doc Ock great, with his arms, how quick he was and his dialog was funny to listen to, to say the least. "Looks like we got competition" once Green Goblin arrived, however I wish they did more with this scene and used Doctor Strange's escape once Peter was almost hit during the fight with Norman's glider. As to me, there was more they could have done with this scene before he was taken away.

Other than this one floor with Green Goblin, the scene was amazing and worked really well with the lead up to every villain seeing each other. Green Goblin for me was played extremely well and was nostalgic to the old 2002 Spiderman film as he hasn't changed the way we all look at the Green Goblin.

In my opinion, the Green Goblins first appearance could have been way better than it was, like stated before, however Doc Ock's appearance was exciting and intense like the times Spiderman was fighting Doc Ock originally, however there was nothing much else they could have done with him in that scene other than making more of a threat towards the women Peter was trying to save. Green Goblin should have had more screen time during this scene.

When introducing Sandman and Electro, it was great to see that Sandman still remembered Peter Parker as Spiderman, however only seeing him as a literally Sand man throughout the movie was strange to me and seeing a different version of Electro, however the reason for this is due to guy who played Sandman, Thomas Church, couldn't make it to the recording, therefore this was what they could do, which was a great idea, but for Spiderman fans who remember this character, it was weird to see.

During the fight scene with Spiderman and Electro, it was funny to see MJ and Ned try and help Peter navigate his way through the forest while being attacked and due to them talking made him get hit! What was great was when they decided to use Electro's comic accurate look instead of the blue look he had during his time in The Amazing Spiderman 2.  Overall these scenes were okay to me, there were more moments that could have happened.

The whole scene with Doctor Strange was incredible, having two hero's fight for what the villains fate would be, just worked a treat for the movie. The scene with the train was the one that made me wonder how! "You know what's better than magic, MATH" was by far the funniest line throughout the movie other than one later on in the movie involving all three Spiderman's!

Before anymore writing, here is a funny deleted scene they should have kept in! The awkward feel to this made this one moment funny to me.

This fight scene between Spiderman and Green Goblin was both intense and electrifying... Literally! Even with the Lizard getting involved... Which he didn't have much time during the lead up to this, however the fight scene at the end was what made the Lizard better.

The Green Goblin was amazing when he returned from "behind the cowardly eyes of Norman Osborn". Willem was incredible throughout the movie and managed to recapture the Green Goblin in the most recent films which I didn't think was possible, but Willem Defoe managed to recapture what a lot of Spiderman fans would of thought was lost, well I thought they wouldn't be able to recapture his terrifying ways!


The worst part for me and maybe many people was the moment where Aunt May died to the hands of Normans Glider. Now, to me, it's not the worst part due to the death of his Aunt, to me, the worst part is the fact there was so many routes they could of went down with Aunt May and they didn't. Aunt May wasn't really involved in Far From Home and only had a small fun segment with Peter in Homecoming, however this to me should not of happened as there was so many ways she could have been involved, even more involved with Happy Hogan.

Introduction of Tobey and Andrew was amazing. Making Ned believe that he found his Peter Parker but instead found the wrong one and "a random old dude". What was strange to me was how Ned's mother reacting to Tobey differently to Andrew. Overall this scene was by far one of my favourite moments in history. And even the moment Peter 1, 2 and 3 all saying "With Great Power, comes great reasonability"!

"That stuff just come out of you" was a great way to improvise the fact that Tobey's Spiderman doesn't need web fluid, however the moments while they are creating the trap to cure the villains was also amazing. "You can just grow web fluid from inside your body" I think a lot of us can say we would all feel uncomfortable and feel like everyone is "taunting" us! It is strange to see nowadays and the valid question for everyone and me would be "does it come out anywhere else" which to me was a funny moment between all three Spiderman's.

My favourite scene throughout the movie, which I believe they could have done better by adding one thing, was when Andrew Garfield saved MJ and cried, however this could of been made better if they added him thinking about the time he didn't save Gwen, maybe adding some visual effects of the moment while he is dropping down to save MJ, from when she fell to the time she almost died. But all and all this scene was amazing, just like the whole fight scene with all three Spiderman's not knowing how to work as a team!

"I Love You Guys" can only be described when thinking of this movie and what everyone did to make this movie happen! This is what everyone wanted and Marvel did well to make this happen and implemented everything in well, just one issue for me and I mentioned this before.

Green Goblin should have "come out to play" more than he did. He had some big moments and some big parts, however the main villains were Doc Ock, Sandman and Electro! They could have used him more during the movie.

Overall, the movie was almost a 10/10, maybe a 8.5 out of 10 as there was a lot of moments in this movie which was right and a lot of moments were the movie was wrong. Introducing all the old villains instead of trying to make a new one was amazing, allowing Tom, Tobey and Andrew to improvise the lines during the attack and even making the Spiderman meme happen on screen was amazing. Definitely one of my favourite movies of all time and I would recommend watching this movie as it is worth the watch!
