The reviews are in and Spider-Man No Way Home, the latest Spidey escapade starring Tom Holland, has apparently stuck the landing. It promised to be the biggest Spider-Man movie ever — and delivered.
My kids and husband are Marvel fans and they just had to watch as soon as possible. We couldn’t make it for the first day first show. As a result, the kids switched off all alerts and Instagram stories because of the number of spoiler alerts about the plot that were doing the rounds.
Being back in a movie hall after so long was a little daunting, but with all precautions at the venue and armed with masks and sanitizers we went for the movie. I’m not a huge movies fan but I am glad I was coerced into going with them this time. Everyone was so excited about the movie
The atmosphere at the cinema hall was just something else. With every twist & unexpected turn, the crowd was breaking out into cheers, tears and tons of whistling. We have really missed the movie-going experience.
Within three days of its release, Spider-Man: No Way Home’ has already become the highest-grossing film of 2020 and 2021. The film also stars Toma Holland, Zendaya (the real and reel girlfriend of Tom Holland), Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr Strange and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May.
What’s The Story?
In the new film, with Spider-Man’s identity now revealed, his arch-nemesis, Mysterio has framed him for murder and revealed his identity. With great attention comes great backlash. The media calls him a “public enemy #1”; Peter asks Doctor Strange for help. But when a spell goes wrong, some old enemies from other worlds start to appear, forcing Peter to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.
It is a typical Marvel movie with superpowers and characters flying across the screen. But you will stay glued to the screen for the entire length of the movie, digging deep into the big carton of butter popcorn.
This Is What My Kids Learnt From The Movie
With great power comes great responsibility
This line has been used in every single Spidey movie and is the motto where Spider-Man is concerned. Even though there is violence as could be expected from a superheroes movie, the storylines revolve around the importance of second chances, helping those in need, the lasting impact of doing good deeds, and, of course, the connection between power and responsibility.
I want my kids to understand that too. They need to be responsible for their actions and be aware of the effect it has on people around them.
This is a moving adventure and an emotionally riveting drama it is surely going to swing you in the right way.
PS: There are 2 post-credit scenes – so don’t leave the moment the credits roll. I promise you’ll thank me later.
