“No way home” poised to continue shattering records

Altogether, the movie was by far one of the best depictions of the loved Marvel comic. The pacing and plot were both exceptional, making you engaged throughout the movie. The darker PG- 13 rated material pushes Holland to burning, emotional places. His eyes flicker with the difficult moral decisions. This is what I liked most about the movie, as Holland is an amazing actor. He’s able to get the audience to either cry or laugh with him, making me thoroughly enjoy watching the character development. Another part that was my favorite was action sequences which felt more real than the previous films.
