Spider-Man: No Way Home Gets A Nearly Perfect 100% Score On Rotten Tomatoes

Early reviews for Spider-Man: No Way Home are in and it looks like it could be the best film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The embargo on critics' opinions has finally lifted for Tom Holland's third instalment as the web slinger.

They've been amalgamated on Rotten Tomatoes and the movie so far has a 99 per cent score after 67 reviews, which is incredibly high for any film, let alone a superhero one.

The critical consensus states: "A bigger, bolder Spider-Man sequel, No Way Home expands the franchise's scope and stakes without losing sight of its humor and heart."

Holland has been praised for delivering an incredible performance as Peter Parker as he navigates the difficulties of being a teenager and Spider-Man who has finally been unmasked to the world.

Critics also seem pretty amazed by how Marvel has introduced the multiverse, which sees villains from previous Spider-Man trilogies like Dr Octopus, Electro and the Green Goblin brought into the fold.

Thrillist's Esther Zuckerman wrote about the movie: "Spider-Man: No Way Home is a goliath that feels destined to eat the world, a potent combination of the ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe and nostalgia for what came before."

Rolling Stone's David Fear added: "This is, in so many ways, business as usual... But when the movie decides to detour into cracked, buddy-comedy territory -- that's when the fun begins."

While Entertainment Weekly's Leah Greenblatt said: "What seems at first like pure fan service turns out to be some of the best and by far the most meta stuff Marvel has done: tender and funny and a little bit devastating."

Critics didn't universally love the movie, with some calling it 'uneven' at points and a film that takes a while to find its 'rhythm'.

The film sees Peter Parker ask Dr Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to cast a spell so that no one knows his true identity.

However, an error during the spell casting opens up a portal to the multiverse and allows all sorts of characters from the MCU to crawl through and wreak havoc on the world.

"Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse," the synopsis adds.

The movie drops for people in the UK on December 15, December 16 for Aussies and December 17 for people in America.
