This will be brief because I am going to try to avoid spoilers for the many who have yet to see it. It was thoroughly enjoyable. Maybe a bit plot thin in spots, but there is enough character, action, humor, and, yes, sadness to keep the movie from dragging. It draws on all of the Spider-Man franchise that came before, and leaves the door wide open to the future. Holland is probably my favorite Spider-Man, but even the (IMO) worst of them (Toby McGuire, I’m looking at you) added context and rounded the Spiderverse well. There was plenty of action, much of it, in the best Marvel fashion, on grand scales. Benedict Cumberbatch is, as always, quite dashing as Dr. Strange, but with just a hint of eyebrow-waggling humor. The supporting cast is spot on, and there are plenty of nods to the rest of the MCU sprinkled in. I laughed, I cried, I was on the edge of my seat more than once.
Go see it. It was that good.
