13. Madame Web

Madame Web introduces audiences to one of Spider-Man's comic allies in an unexpected twist to the origin story of the hero most know. The film follows paramedic Cassandra Webb whose life is changed after she develops clairvoyant abilities following a near-death experience. While still struggling to come to grips with the abilities she is developing, Cassie must face revelations about her past that will shape her future while helping to safeguard three young women destined for greatness from a deadly adversary who wants to kill them before they have the chance to kill him in the future.

On paper, Madame Web should have been a slam dunk and there are definitely some fun moments in the film; however, as a whole, Madame Web falls short of glory. I appreciate the film's unique approach to the title character's origin story but as an origin movie, it lacked originality and didn't exactly deliver a worthy payoff to our time.

There was a lot of talking and not much doing in the film, with the action sequences being a bit predictable and uninspired and the plot feeling incredibly disjointed in many places. This was supposed to be Madame Web's origin story, but we spent most of the movie wondering how the three Spider-Women she was protecting would become the heroes the film teased in its opening.

This movie felt like it was trying too hard to set up future films but the sad part is that in doing so, Sony failed the characters it was looking to set up for success.
