Hey guys, how’s it going? Rahul here coming in with a brand new blog. I hope everyone is having a great, safe, and healthy week. Another busy few weeks for me which is why I am posting a week late. Please don’t mind if my 1 post per week becomes 1 post every two weeks. So, let’s begin.
In a world after everyone has been brought back after half the world had disappeared and the Avengers have been currently disbanded, Peter Parker goes on a school trip to Europe where he plans to finally confess his feelings for MJ. In Europe, he meets a new superhero, Mysterio and is made to save the world by fighting against the Elementals. However, is it truly the elementals that are the enemy?
I thought it would be good to finally get the review of this movie done before the new Spider-man: No way home movie drops. This movie is a perfect combination of light humour, good action, interesting plot, and capturing suspense. I had a lot of fun watching this film and have very little negative to write about it as well. Although, this blog will be relatively shorter.
Starting off with the plot. The timeline was really well presented. A lot of times, I’m left trying to figure out what timeline we are following in initial parts of Marvel movies and there are times where I can’t figure it out at all. However, this movie very clearly presented the timeline within the first 10 minutes of the film and that really helped set the base of the plot of the rest of the movie. I was able to focus on the plot as a whole much more and this helped me enjoy the movie more as well. Coming to the actual plot of the entire movie. It’s nothing that amazing. It’s quite bland if anything. We have Peter Parker acting like a typical teenager throughout the film. Just not wanting to do any hero work and wanting to hang out with his friends and try confessing his feelings for his crush. This made the movie quite light hearted which I actually enjoyed. I wasn’t really in the mood for a very heavy story and action packed movie. So, for the plot to be not too powerful actually worked in my favour. However, I will commend the movie for the big plot twist on Mysterio’s actual identity. I honestly did not expect that at all and it got me quite excited to see what the rest of the movie had in store for us.
The movie also did a great job in setting up what to expect in the next Spider-Man movie. Throughout the film, they kept dropping us hints of a multiverse and possibilities of having multiple identities of the same person. This can be seen through Peter’s discussion with Mysterio in the middle of the film and then the daily bugle guy who hates Spider-Man coming in the post credits scene. Speaking of which, the post credits scene can not be slept on. It was so great to see the movie to end with such amazing suspense. Peter Parker hiding his identity is a huge factor in his character and for him to finally get exposed is a huge deal. it honestly made my eyes open wide and get super excited to see what the next Spider-Man movie will have in store for us.
Finally, this movie really encompasses why Spider-man is one of the best superhero’s in the Marvel universe. Not only being very strong and reliable but also showing his moves, flexibility, humour, and relatable romance just makes Spider-Man a simple hero with so much potential. I can not express how much I enjoy Spider-Man movies compared to any other Marvel movies and movies like these justify that even if the plot isn’t very impactful. Good music, good action, great characters, and fantastic CGI. This really summarises how I feel about this movie. I would highly recommend to watch this film before the new Spider-Man movie comes out. Overall a fun film.
I would give this movie 3.5/5 stars.
