It's possible that die-hard Spider-Man fans will disagree with me (feel free to write your own review), but this movie strikes me as one that was constrained by the powers that be in what it could do within the confines of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). I can imagine someone in a meeting somewhere laying down the law about what they could do and couldn't do because of the impact the proceedings might have with the grand plans.

Like all action movies, especially comic book movies, you have to take the plot with a huge grain of salt. Fortunately, we don't have an entire ensemble cast making inexplicably bad decisions, but if you think at all about the decision upon which this entire movie is based, you'll just shake your head and you'll likely have some traumatic stress reactions left over from Infinity War. I disagree with the treatment of one of the characters, but it's not like there wasn't precedent for doing so based on the other two series, and no one invited me into the writers' room when the decision was made.

I feel like this was an attempt to draw Spider-Man fans together as a collective unit, no matter which Spider-Man series they liked. Do enough fan service to all three groups, let them have fun together for a couple of hours, and hope that they will all be a potential audience for Tom Holland's next turn in the suit. Don't get me wrong, the blending of the past villains and heroes was very well done, so the filmmakers should be commended for making it all turn out successfully!

Ardent Spider-Man fans will enjoy this, and they definitely don't need anyone to tell them different. Those that don't have Spidey memorabilia on their walls may have less of an affinity, but they shouldn't be disappointed with what's happened here. I wouldn't be at all surprised, however, if the events of this movie never get mentioned in the MCU, aside from a short transitional period in any future Tom Holland Spider-Man movie. Time will tell if No Way Home becomes more pivotal, but I suspect that it will remain a minor player in the latest series.
