Madame Web Review: A Spider-Man Spin-off That Fails to Impress

| Updated: February 16, 2024 19:31

Madame Web is one of the many Spider-Man spin-off movies that Sony Pictures has been producing, but it fails to live up to the expectations of the fans and the critics. The movie stars Dakota Johnson as Cassandra “Cassie” Webb, a psychic paramedic who becomes the titular Madame Web after a near-death experience. The movie is supposed to be an origin story that explores her powers and her connection to the Spider-Verse, but it ends up being a confusing and inconsistent mess that leaves many questions unanswered.

The movie starts off well, with Cassie saving three teenage girls from a mysterious villain named Ezekiel Sims (Tahar Rahim), who has a vendetta against them for a future prophecy. The girls, Julia Cornwall (Sydney Sweeney), Anya Corazon (Isabela Merced) and Mattie Franklin (Celeste O’Connor), join Cassie in her quest to learn more about her abilities and her past. They travel to the Amazon forest, where Cassie meets her mentor, Madame Web (Helen Mirren), who reveals the secrets of her origin and her role in the Spider-Verse.

The movie has the potential to be a thrilling and empowering story of a female superhero, especially since Sony has not given us one yet. However, the movie falls apart in the second half, where the plot becomes convoluted and the characters become underdeveloped. The movie does not explain how Cassie’s powers work, how she becomes Madame Web, or what her purpose is. The movie also does not give enough screen time or depth to the villain, Sims, who is supposed to be a formidable foe for Cassie and the girls. The movie relies on lazy writing and vague references to the comics, which alienate the viewers who are not familiar with the source material. The movie also fails to deliver a satisfying climax, where Cassie and the girls face off against Sims and his army of spider-hunters.

The only redeeming quality of the movie is the visual aspect, which showcases some stunning cinematography and action scenes. The movie also benefits from the presence of Dakota Johnson, who tries her best to carry the movie with her charisma and chemistry with the girls. Johnson is a talented actress who deserves better material than this. The other actors, such as Sweeney, Merced, O’Connor, Rahim, and Mirren, are also wasted in their roles, which do not give them much to work with.

Madame Web is a disappointing Spider-Man spin-off that wastes Dakota Johnson’s talent and the potential of the comic book character. The movie is a poorly written and poorly executed attempt at creating a female-led superhero movie, which does not do justice to the fans or the genre. The movie is not worth your time or money, unless you are a die-hard fan of Dakota Johnson or Spider-Man.

The dialogues in Madame Web are so bad that they give competition to Brahmastra in their cringe-worthiness. SJ Clarkson ruins the iconic ‘With great power comes great responsibility’ line by twisting it into a terrible joke. Madame Web is a letdown for fans who wanted to see Dakota’s Cassie join Spider-Man in his adventures. The movie teases some exciting twists, but they all fall flat in the end. I wouldn’t call this the worst movie I’ve ever seen, but it’s far from the best superhero movie. If you decide to watch Madame Web, lower your expectations. You might find some enjoyment in the first half, but don’t expect much from the rest.
