*SPOILERS* Exceeded my (very high) expectations
I have been following all of the hype and leaks for this movie on Twitter, so my expectations were very high for this movie. Especially since (in my personal opinion) the Tom Holland Spider-Man movies always lacked severe consequences and stakes. The previous Spider-Man movies were always my favorites. However, No Way Home exceeded my expectations, and is my favorite MCU movie that I've seen in awhile.
This movie is on the same level as every other MCU movie when it comes to violence and language. So if your kid has seen any MCU movie, they will be fine. It is very long (2.5 hours) and it does drag in the second act, so any kid under 10 may not be able to sit through it.
I am so freaking happy that Tobey and Andrew are back, it MADE this movie 10x better. Especially Andrew's Peter, he really did an amazing job bringing a funny, snarky Peter into the mix. I am so glad the rumors ended up being true!
All the villains are great, and are improved from their past performances. Especially Green Goblin, William Dafoe was awesome!
Because the marketing/trailers of the movie had to completely leave out the second half, the first hour is kind of spoiled. With Dr. Strange, MJ, and Ned. It had some pacing issues up until the return of Andrew and Tobey, so that's why I gave it four stars.
All-in-all, this was fun, nostalgic, and even emotional! I really enjoyed it and think it deserves all the hype it has gotten.
