The First Spoiler-Free Reviews For Spider-Man: No Way Home Are In
The day that I’ve been dreading is finally here. The much-anticipated third Tom Holland Spider-Man film, No Way Home, just had its world premiere in Los Angeles. I’m dreading this day not because I hate Spider-Man. In fact, I think I’ve established that I am the resident Spidey guy here. I’m extremely upset because in a couple of days, the movie will hit every major cinema in the entire world—except here in the Philippines, despite numerous petitions and public outcry. This means spoilers will run rampant on every corner of the internet. Why, god? Why?
Some critics and members of the media who were blessed by the Spider-gods to be a part of the premiere have already been posting their initial reactions and reviews as the embargo was officially lifted. Does Spider-Man No Way Home live up to its massive, bigger than Avengers Endgame hype? Here’s what the first few lucky viewers have to say.
#SpiderManNoWayHome is the tale of 2 halves. First is everything I feared, cheap, gratuitous, nostalgia mixed w/nonsense. Second is the quintessential #SpiderMan story I’ve WANTED from Holland. Packs an emotional wallop & some of the best Spidey moments ever. Messy but satisfying pic.twitter.com/5u7CaIwZfN— Griffin Schiller (@griffschiller) December 14, 2021
#SpiderManNoWayHome is a smorgasbord of story, surprises and strong set pieces. It’s an exhilarating melange that fans will lap up. The buffet of bad guys is a blast. Holland excels again in a lead role. The show stopping third act is an absolute treat. Avoid the spoilerverse! pic.twitter.com/joy2FUHfUZ— Simon Thompson (@ShowbizSimon) December 14, 2021
#SpiderManNoWayHome is A LOT of movie -- it's MASSIVE -- and I'm happy to report it's everything you're expecting/hoping for ?????— Eric Italiano (@ericitaIiano) December 14, 2021
The plot devices to set the stage are a bit silly but that doesn't really matter given the sheer spectacle -- easily one of the grandest MCU films yet. pic.twitter.com/sBDtrF6ccP
Spider-Man: No Way Home didn't meet my expectations, it EXCEEDED them. This movie is worth every excruciating moment we had to wait!

Tears, chills, happiness... #SpiderManNoWayHome pic.twitter.com/44FcO7IrtF— Tessa Smith - Mama's Geeky (@MamasGeeky) December 14, 2021
I can confidently say #SpiderManNoWayHome is THE BEST live-action Spider-Man movie. A thrilling & emotional end to the “Homecoming” trilogy, but also a smart, fun & exciting tribute to 20 years of Spider-Man movies. Both hilarious & heartbreaking, I honestly loved every second. pic.twitter.com/8xpqbTNgfz— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) December 14, 2021
Spider-Man: No Way Home is the best Marvel movie of all time. #SpiderManNoWayHome perfectly pays tribute to the legacy of Spider-Man and finds that perfect balance of humor, action, heart, and nostalgia. Fans of the web-slinger will absolutely lose their minds when they see this. pic.twitter.com/mYZ7emhkY1— Scott Menzel (@ScottDMenzel) December 14, 2021

The first half of #SpiderManNoWayHome is a lil messy, but that second half SOARS. In that part of the movie, the multiverse of it all FAR exceeded my expectations -- fun, exhilarating, often very emotional and hugely satisfying material.— Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) December 14, 2021

Believe the hype! #SpiderManNoWayHome is absolutely incredible. Not only the best superhero movie of the year, but hands down the best Spider-Man film ever that honors what has come before.— Umberto Gonzalez (@elmayimbe) December 14, 2021
I just watched Spider-Man: No Way Home.— Jack “CouRage” Dunlop (@CouRageJD) December 14, 2021
What a fantastic movie from start to finish. I felt every emotion along the way.
If you see it, then don’t spoil the movie. Go watch it AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
Damn. By the looks of it, the movie has the makings of being the best Spider-Man movie yet. This makes me even more depressed that I won’t be able to see the film for the next three weeks or so. I’ll forever hate you for this, Columbia Pictures Philippines—or whoever made this horrible decision. It’s time to stay off the internet until January 8 or, at the very least, mute all Spider-Man-related topics and keywords on Twitter. Or not. It's your funeral.
