SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME’s First (Non-Spoiler) Reactions Swing In

The most anticipated movie of 2021 is almost here. Spider-Man: No Way Home swings into theaters December 17. Marvel and Sony have (seemingly) been keen on keeping the film’s biggest secrets a surprise. But this week the press finally got a chance to see if it lives up to the impossible hype. That included Nerdist‘s very own Rosie Knight, who says in her review that those of us hoping for a great Spider-Man movie “won’t be disappointed.” But does everyone agree with her? Or is this a tale of building up expectations beyond what even Peter Parker can reach? Based on Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s first non-spoiler reactions, Rosie’s not the only one who thinks the webbed-slinger has weaved a truly wonderful installment into the Spider-Man franchise.

For some there’s no question as to how this film ranks against its many predecessors. They think this is the single best Spider-Man movie ever made.

But forget just being the best Spider-Man installment to ever hit theaters. Our own Hector Navarro says No Way Home is one of the best superhero movies ever made period.

Based on some of the other Spider-Man: No Way Home reactions to the film, Hector’s assessment might prove to be conventional wisdom by as early as Friday night. No Way Home sounds like it perfectly matches genuine pathos with genuine laughs.

For our fellow criers out there, be prepared. Definitely have a hanky handy. You might not make it through this film with dry eyes.

Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s first reactions weren’t universally perfect though. However, that shouldn’t exactly worry fans. Even those who found some flaws with the movie, most notably its pacing issues, still had high praise for the film.

Okay, fine, we’ll see it. Not that there was ever any doubt we would. The real question is how many times will we.
