We all were super excited to witness one of the biggest shows of the year, "Spider-Man: No Way Home," and we thought this was going to be the biggest Spider-Man movie ever. Well, it might be right. With a series of unbeatable villains, rumors of returning Spider-Men, a record-breaking trailer, and the concept of the multiverse opening it all up, the movie got us with lots of surprises, thrillers, and teasers. Spider-Man: No Way Home plays every trump card to be the best.
For the most part, everything works as expected. We'd recommend you watch all the previous Spider-Man movies. Despite an unavoidably tangled web of characters, flashbacks, and motivations, Spider-Man: No Way Home manages a surprisingly tidy plot. You'd enjoy every moment if you understood where each player comes from. However, Marvel fans must have seen all the parts of Spider-Man, and why not? They are worth it.

The Unusual Storyline
The biggest twist was the villains from another world. The movie starts with the events and happenings of the previous movie. Peter Parker is now unmasked as Spider-Man. He is being followed by media figures, including a magnificent JK Simmons returning as J. Jonah Jameson. When they have no way out, Peter goes to Doctor Strange to have the memory of him being Spider-Man erased from the public. Unfortunately, the spell messes up the entire situation. And now the war begins. Villains who have fought Spider-Man from different universes (in the older films) have arrived and are causing destruction. Spider-Man has to take the lead to track them down and send them home.
The movie highly focuses on the Spider-Man. It is about his story, his journey, his friends, and his villains. Unlike Ironman or Doctor Strange in the past series, this movie is centered almost entirely around Spider-Man. That's what you'll love about it.
'Spider-Man: No Way Home' Becoming First Pandemic-Era Movie to Hit $1 Billion Milestone Globally!
Given how global events and everything else have been impacted by COVID-19 with reduced capacities and on-and-off closures in certain regions, let's talk about this international hit. The first $1 billion grossing global titles of the pandemic, Marvel's Spider-Man: No Way Home, has made a huge success and has covered a $242M net profit after all the marketing costs and participation.
The movie was popular even before its release, and fans were waiting for it to be available. Theaters got big crowds, and the Tom Holland-Zendaya-Benedict Cumberbatch movie remains on a steady box office track. With the profit forecasting, it's seen that 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' will get close to 3x what it's currently generating with an estimation of $610M.
The Success Reasons:
Speaking of performances, we've got plenty of names to mention but keeping the theme, let's first appreciate Tom Holland, who has done a fabulous job to depict the inner turmoil his character faces and has to endure. After that, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Marisa Tomei come in the queen.
They've done justice to their roles. Additionally, Jacob Batalon as Ned has done an admirable job as Peter's best friend and comic interlude.
There are two primary reasons to stream the movie; one is Peter, and the other is the story. The movie teaches us a lesson that you can't necessarily fix someone else, especially if they are not ready for it and don't want to change. That's the right thing to do. Spider-Man: No Way Home shows us that sometimes doing the right thing will end up in your own loss or pain. It also depicts the desire for revenge and says that revenge should never be the choice. You should be working with others and leaning on friends to find a way through difficult times.
In the movie, you'll see a very strong point that many characters share their own stories of loss with Peter. That part shows that even when you do everything right, you can run into painful circumstances. And most amazingly, Peter expresses his love for his friends, and ultimately, he makes choices that benefit them over his own needs.
Final Words: Miss it or Stream it?
In terms of music, Spider-Man: No Way Home has done a remarkable job. They're totally related to the scenes and climax and emotional phases. Talking about the visuals, the CGI and VFX work is top-notch and flawlessly executed. The dialogues of the movie deserve a special mention. The one-liner statements are witty and funny, and a few of them would be greeted with claps and whistles.
From being a superhero movie for kids to one of the best Marvel movies in the world, Spider-Man has come a long way. It deserves the tremendous hype and advances in ticket bookings.
On the whole, SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME is definitely a must-watch. Hence, it won't be wrong to say that it has BLOCKBUSTER written all over it!
