It feels like a dream. It’s been just a little over a month since I’ve watched Endgame, and now I’ve already watched the first film of Phase IV? Or, no, the last film of Phase III? No, doesn’t sound right. It’s more of a bridge. Oh, and such a well built, stable bridge. Does it offer closure to what happened in Endgame? Yes. Does it tease us for the future. Oh, YES.
I’m going to try really hard to talk about it without spoilers. There’s a lot of things within the movie which needs to be discussed, but I think I’ll rather save them for later, when we know more about what’s coming in upcoming years. So, yes, going spoiler free.
This is a really, really, really well written movie. Peter-MJ thing is so relatable, I can’t describe. (Except how it ended, obv. Forever single!) But, yeah, the writers out-did themselves. So did the director. And, so did the special effects team. At moments, it even felt like a psychological thriller than a fun superhero movie.
Tom Holland is the best Spiderman ever, without a doubt. He’s awkward, he’s young, he’s intelligent & he acts great! He’s only getting better at playing the role as each film passes. Can’t ever forget his improvisation when he got blipped in Infinity War. (Yeah, that’s what it is called now. The Blip.) I wish there was more of Peter & MJ since Homecoming itself, instead of showing Peter crushing over Liz, which was important for the plot, but well, Peter & MJ work really, really well!

The concerns I raised over the 5 year jump in my article last friday were addressed in the very beginning, but were also forgotten soon after. But, something that was constant throughout was the legacy of Tony Stark.
Expect tears in the beginning of the film because of something very special, and later be ready to re-visit few scenes from old movies from a different angle – just not the ones you’ll think I would be talking about. Be ready to see things going the opposite way from how you thought they will. And, be ready to love every moment of it.
Lately, the second credit scene has been pointless in Marvel Movies, like in Captain Marvel, Ant-Man & the Wasp. But, do NOT do the mistake of missing it. Both of them are going to break your world apart. Trust me on this, you’ll certainly go, “What the fu-“!
Everywhere I go, I see his face.
The movie teased a lot of stuff for the larger MCU, while giving small nods to Captain America, and other characters too. While there are a lot of Tony Stark cameos in the form of wall paintings or posters, expect none from Stan Lee. Yes, unfortunately, the era of fun cameos is over. Though, I’m glad that unlike Endgame, at least this is dedicated to the legend!
If you’re a Spider-man fan, and don’t watch the other films, this is going to be a tough sell for you. In all honesty, it’s a lot more than being a Spider-Man film. Homecoming was a more spider-man film than this was. But, there are the New York city shots, and they’re beautiful!
Marvel fans, don’t miss this thinking that you’ll wait for the digital release just because there’s time for the next movie. Go, watch. It’s totally, totally worth it.
