Well, we all waited for the third in the series, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and no doubt the movie proved to be a blast. The film was well-received by the audience, but the audience can’t help but notice some bummer moments in the movie. There is no denying the fact that Spider-Man was and is everybody’s favorite. Still, the movie’s way of portraying the legacy of Spider-Man didn’t take over hearts and left the fans in utter bafflement whether to love the film or hate it. The movie, however, didn’t receive hatred but a mixed reaction from the audience, and here are 5 reasons why.
1. Under-explained and well-explained storyline: When it comes to the storyline, there’s nothing that No Way Home has left vacant, even when it comes down to a little bit of a complex storyline. No Way Home, inspired by the One More Day comic, exchanges the character of Mephisto with Doctor Strange. Doctor Strange makes everybody forget Spider-Man’s real identity. Contrary to this, No Way Home fails to explain Ned Leeds’ out-of-the-blue magic skills.
2. Great Detail and Less Detail: The ending of Far From Home showed us that Peter Parker is going to have to deal with legal issues after Mysterio blames him for the London attacks. It made fans speculate on ways in which Peter can get out of this. However, No Way Home brushed off these issues in mere seconds in the movie. It actually got fans more confused about the whole scenario.
3. Venom didn’t come: Well, all the fans saw Eddie Brock getting teleported to MCU. Expectations from Venom in No Way Home were much more. But all the expectations were crushed when he appeared for nothing but a cameo in the movie. Some believe that Eddie Brock had a larger role in the movie initially.
4. Maintaining a Perfect Balance: While at some places, the balance dwindled, in some areas, it remained perfectly intact. What dwindled the balance was the movie’s attempt to balance MCU’s humor with the darker and solemn tones of the film. While the discrepancy was visible, it didn’t seem to damage the basic outline of the film. However, the attempt to maintain the originality of the story was perfect, and it quite hit the bull’s eye.
5. Multiple Villains Rocked while Doctor Strange seemed absurd: While its ancestors, Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, couldn’t handle multiple villains with much skill, this movie made an exception and handled all the villains with utmost perfection. However, Doctor Stranger’s spells seemed quite absurd for the audience, especially the magic that made everyone forget Spider-Man’s identity. No offenses, but the spells didn’t offer any logistics, which only creates more confusion.
