Webslinging Review of Spiderman Homecoming

Updated on July 17, 2017

Plot

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.

      Pat, I agree with you on that. The second Spider-Man in that series was awesome. I would love to see where this franchise will go. I know it will have some involvement in the Avengers series, but I would like to see this succeed on its own.

      I, too, would like to see Tom Holland reprise the role, and see what happens next. I also like what Sam Raimi did in the Maguire Spider-Man franchise - especially Spider-Man 2. If Watts and Holland build on this franchise, they have the potential to be the best Marvel has produced in this series.

      Hey Tamara, good to see you. I am glad you liked my review. I do like that first image, that's why I had to make it the main one. I hope you enjoy the movie.

      Ryan, I want to see this. Thank you for the concise review! Your front picture is rich and stunning. It might seem strange to me seeing a different character playing Spidey...

      Kira it did seem like there was some things that were missing, and that is why I think the sequel is going to be way better

      I thought Spider-Man: Homecoming was a pretty good movie overall, I think that Tom Holland is a fantastic Spider-Man but there were definitely some points where the plot sort of lingered and dragged on unnecessarily. Although, I definitely can't wait to see more of this Spider-Man in the upcoming Infinity Wars films.

      I rarely get to them too. My niece and nephew wanted to see this which made me super happy. They really enjoy Superhero movies and I do as well so it is a win for both of us.

      I rarely go to the movies; when I do it's typically to take my daughter who favors animated films and just about anything Disney.

      That said, I might treat my husband to a trip to the theater--he really enjoys action movies and I'm pretty sure he has seen the other Spiderman flicks. I would not have given this movie a second thought , but based on your great review, I'm changing my mind!

      Just took my boy to watch it. I think you nailed this review. I like a little more sarcastic/funny Spidey. I also liked our modern day lady caretaker. Here I felt more auntie and less grandma. And I hope nobody misses the last line of the movie setting up the sequel perfectly.
