What the critics are saying about Spider-Man No Way Home

Spider-Man No Way Home swings into cinemas this week and the critics verdicts are out.

Although there a few common gripes – mostly around the plot lagging in the middle – overall, everyone has positive things to say. The film definitely has a strong beginning and an even stronger end and whilst this isn’t the end of Tom Holland in the role, it is very much an end to his initial trilogy.

Here’s what the critics are saying…

Variety write: “No Way Home” doesn’t pretend that the earlier films were perfect, poking fun at elements we can all agree were weaknesses, while also leaving room for the villains and Spider-Men alike to do some much-needed healing. The movie can be ungainly at times, and it’s much too committed to setting up even more craziness to play out in upcoming Marvel product”.

IGN say: “Spider-Man: No Way Home hits all the right notes as the MCU’s latest entry. Its impact on the universe as a whole, as well as the overall emotional beats, all feel earned. Stellar performances meet what feels like a Saturday morning cartoon rife with all the devastating punches we’ve come to expect from this sneaky universe”.

The Hollywood Reporter is less kind, writing “Who thought it was a great idea to tackle this material so soon after practically the same thing happened in 2018’s animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse? That rollicking, eye-popping adventure was so fresh, funny and exciting that No Way Home can really only look stodgy in comparison, relying on the novelty of faces we haven’t seen in a while and building up to the kind of operatic emotional moments the previous Watts films tended to avoid”
