Once upon a time
For the first time in his cinematic history, Spider-Man, the friendly neighborhood hero, is exposed and can no longer separate his normal life from his heavy responsibilities as a superhero. When he asks Doctor Strange for help, the stakes get even more dangerous, forcing him to find out what being Spider-Man really means.
To see with your children… or on your own?
The spider-man is one of the favorite superheroes of our little darlings and for good reason: with his webs that allow him to jump from building to building and his sympathetic side, we all dream of being his best friend. .
In this new trilogy initiated by Marvel at the cinema, Peter Parker is played by an actor younger than the previous ones: Tom Holland brings naivety and a welcome breeze of freshness. This new version is definitely aimed at a younger audience than Sam Raimi’s films for example.
But where the first Homecoming part met Disney’s specifications for the family side, the second with Mystério was already a little darker. The third is by far the opus which contains the most darkness and emotion. We see a hero sinking little by little, while his identity is revealed to the whole world. He is manhandled, lonely and is going through the most difficult period of his life … It talks about responsibilities, self-acceptance and mourning.
Without too much spoiler, Spider-Man No Way Home is rich in action scenes, which could delight your children from 10 years old. The last half hour of the film also offers a daunting fight that should mark their minds. But watch out for the more sensitive souls who might be frightened by the appearance of the film’s villains.
Another information which could be important and which could tip the scales is the length of the film. It will take 2h30 of almost non-stop action, with very little downtime. But one thing is for sure, Spider-Man is also for parents who are likely to have a good time. Jon Watts’ film does not forget which audience it is aimed at by inserting at certain times touches of humor and references to other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe …
