Spider-Man: No Way Home: Tom Holland's 6th time as Spider-Man is also his best one

The Marvel Cinematic Universe closes out the year with a bang by delivering the best Spider-Man film since 2004's "Spider-Man 2". Jon Watts returns for the third time to craft a Spider-Man movie that features incredible easter eggs that hardcore fans of the famed web-slinger will recognize. The easter eggs are satisfying plot devices that don't feel forced but instead honor the legacy of Peter Parker, AKA Spider-Man. Tom Holland returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the sixth time and delivers the best performance as Spider-Man. In this installment, Tom Holland brings a ton of emotion and portrays Peter Parker as a broken-down superhero to the point where you feel every second of the pain he is going through as Spider-Man and how it affects the people around him. The supporting cast also features many great actors reprising their roles from other films within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Zendaya as Michelle Jones, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Marisa Tomei as May Parker, and Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan. The main villains that Spider-Man fights are the same villains from the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield Spider-Man film series, and seeing them return with the same actors was like watching Michelangelo paint the Sistine Chapel. The five villains that return from past movies were Willem Dafoe as Green Goblin, Alfred Molina as Doc Ock, Jamie Foxx as Electro, Thomas Haden Church as Sandman, and Rhys Ifans as The Lizard with Dafoe, Molina, and Foxx being the standouts. "Spider-Man: No Way Home" is not only a satisfying conclusion to Tom Holland's Spider-Man high school trilogy but a fantastic ending to the live-action Spider-Man film series that Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire started back in 2002. "Spider-Man: No Way Home" is the most emotional film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since "Avengers: Endgame" and was an incredible rebound for the franchise after "Eternals" didn't go the way they were expecting. The success is due to Jon Watts' masterful direction and storytelling, a tremendous performance by Tom Holland, and incredible villains led by Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, and Jamie Foxx. You'll laugh, cry, and cheer from start to finish and make you appreciate what Spider-Man means as a character and why he is one of the greatest superheroes of all time.
