Marvel’s second time rebooting the Spider-Man franchise. This makes you wonder how many ways the filmmakers can tell the story of Peter Parker, a kid who bitten by a radioactive spider, gains superpowers and uses his abilities to fight crime. How is this new version of the friendly neighborhood superhero different from the previous incarnations?
Following his recruitment and fighting with Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) in the Avengers War, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) returns home to live with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei). Peter tries to balance high school life with being Spider-Man while facing the Vulture (Michael Keaton).
Tom Holland steps into the shoes of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as the web-slinger. Holland is electrifying as the young superhero. As the third Spider-Man, Holland offers a fresh take on the character and makes this role his own. He doesn’t have the typical nerdy look Maguire and Garfield had in the previous films. No doubt audiences will find him magnetizing and comical.
Michael Keaton is superb and at times terrifying as the film’s ambitious antagonist Vulture. The supporting cast is excellent with Robert Downey Jr. and Marisa Tomei in tow.
Director Jon Watts presents a thrilling superhero film. Action packed, character driven with impressive special effects makes Spider-Man Homecoming enjoyable to watch.
One of the superhero films this year. Spider-Man Homecoming will not disappoint fans of this genre. A must see.
Rating: 5/5 Stars
