Webslinging Review of Spiderman Homecoming
Meet Peter Parker. A high-school kid like no other. Sure, he is a bit of a nerd and is highly intelligent, but there is something else about this teenage kid that separates him from the rest of the kids. I guess you could say there is another side to Parker that no other kid has. He is the web slinging, crime fighting hero named Spider-Man.
With the help of the Avenger Tony Stark, also known as Iron Man, Peter Parker will try to balance being a hero and living the life of a regular teenage high school student. But all that is about to change and put Parker to the test when a villain by the name of Vulture, played by Michael Keaton, begins to terrorize the city of New York. Peter wants to be the hero and put being an ordinary kid aside, but he is advised otherwise by Tony Stark and others. Will he be able to live a normal life, or will his powers and heroic passion take over?

Review and Rating
First off I want to say that I was a fan of the other Spider-Man movies, so I went into this film expecting to be blown away by this addition to the web series. With the connection to Captain America: Civil War, big hype and expectations were building before I saw this film. So here is my review and rating for this film.
I believe that Tom Holland plays an amazing Spider-Man and Peter Parker. I felt the finally nailed this character as the nerdy kid with super powers. He does a great job as both characters. What I felt were lacking in the other Spider-Man movies was the ability to pull of the best Peter Parker impression, and Holland did that.
The plot of the movie was good. The Vulture villain was done great. The action and special effects were stunning. But for some reason, I was expecting more from the film. I enjoyed it very much and I do think this is the best Spider-Man movie yet, but with the connections to Marvel and the Avengers movie, I did not feel this movie lived up to all the hype. I was not at all blown away by this film like a few of the other Marvel films.
Another thing I felt was that they never really explained the back story of the character and how Parker got his powers. I guess Marvel felt since the previous films, fans would already understand. But for those that Spider-Man: Homecoming is their first Spider-Man film, you just assume he was bitten by a spider and got powers. It raised a lot of questions for my niece and nephew who knew only a little about Spider-Man.
Overall I gave this film a 3.8 stars out of 5 stars. Spider-Man is my favorite Marvel comic character. Best version of this character. Best film in the Spider-Man universe. I would advise seeing this film. I cannot wait until the sequel which I feel will be amazing.
