Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) – Movie Review

Finally after Spider-Man’s appearance in Captain America: Civil War, we get our first Spider-Man movie that is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (Thanks, Sony!!)

There are no spoilers, but only honest opinions ahead.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the second reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, but unlike the Amazing Spider-Man movies, it has a fresher take on Peter Parker’s life as a hero & the conflicts that he faces as a new hero and as a teen.

The casting of Tom Holland as Peter Parker (who looks like the correct age to be Peter Parker in general) brings to life the character we saw briefly in Captain America: Civil War. The route that Marvel took with Spider-Man: Homecoming was different that the previous Spider-Man movies was more humorous and realistic for our society. (Peter Parker, in the movie, was 17 years old, not in his early twenties.)

Scoring:

14 points– Cinematography/special effects- Clever and weird at times, but it brought a fresh look.

15 points– Writing- Clever dialogue and the references to the other story lines and characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

15 points– Acting- Performances from Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Michael Keaton brought the characters that we loved in the comics to life on the silver screen.

13 points– Musical score- It was perfect, but there were times were the music didn’t fit with the mood.

Total: 57/60 = 95%
