‘Madame Web’ had a good plot but was not executed well (Opinion)

2024 film Madame Web was unimpressive and predictable

The ‘spider girls’ all together.

The 2024 film Madame Web recently came out in theaters. While it had a good plot, the movie itself was executed poorly. The reviews on this movie have shown the majority of people who have seen it agree with this poor assessment, garnering a very low rating of 12 percent and a 57 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Starring popular actresses Dakota Johnson as Cassie Webb and Sydney Sweeney as Julia Cornwall, the Marvel superhero-based movie was directed by S.J. Clarkson and co-written with Claire Parker.

The rest of this review contains a few small movie spoilers. Reader discretion is advised.

The movie starts in a Peruvian jungle, where Cassie’s mom is researching a spider with healing properties when her research partner, Ezekiel Sims, played by Tamar Rahim, steals the spider and leaves her to die. Years later, when Cassie is an adult living in New York, she realizes she can see into the future. While looking into the future, she sees the three girls, Julia Cornwall, Anya Corazon, and Mattie Franklin, traveling on a train and saving them. Ezekiel then finds out who she is and follows her and the girls.

The movie continues with him following them wherever they go and trying to attack them. The plot was repetitive as it was the same fight scenes happening just in new places; and the film became very boring and predictable. Cassie is constantly saving the girls and herself. The film ends in a fight scene where Cassie and the three girls realize they need each other and can fight together, which is common and predictable in most superhero movies; in other words, nothing new or interesting.

The movie had a good plot and idea, but it was repetitive and boring halfway through. The acting was okay but not amazing. The ending was very predictable and expected throughout the whole movie.

I was not super impressed with the acting and plot of the movie; it lacked typical Marvel action and details. The movie had potential, but was executed poorly. Overall, I give this movie a 4/10.
