Spider-Man [Tom Holland] begins to navigate his new identity as the web-slinging super hero under the watchful eye of his mentor Tony Stark.
Not so amazing spiderman
Having finally watched this movie I can honestly say it makes me miss the Tobey Maguire version. misses on every level. too much iron man not enough spidey. Aunt May was too young. to name but two things.
Best Spider-Man movie, to portray the world of Peter Parker.
By I watch I enjoy
This has been such a great film, I think they found a very good group of young actors.
My Spidey senses are tingling
The film is utterly amazing. From start to finish it is visually stunning; the humour is fantastic - hilarious at times; and the story has an innocent charm to it.
The cast is superb, though the standout performance is Tom Holland as Peter Parker. His performance is relatable to most young people. He’s trying to balance doing something he loves, acting responsibly, winning his mentor’s approval all the while having to keep in mind the effect on the people he cares for. It’s not only Spider-Man’s struggles; it’s the struggles we all have at some point in our lives.
Michael Keaton is also impeccable. He does a remarkable job of pulling off both a menacing, fearless villain and a devoted husband and father - a family man who is not afraid to do whatever it takes to look after his family. Ultimately, he ends up in prison, leaving his wife and daughter without a husband and father. However, this irony shows just what it takes to make a good hardworking man turn down a darker path: love. Putting it like that sounds so cliche, but when compared with the Dark Elves and Ronan the Accuser it provides a depth of character that rivals or even surpasses Loki and his constant changing allegiances. Keaton’s Vulture is in my opinion the best villain in the MCU so far because - just as with Tom Holland’s performance - he is so relatable to parents and spouses alike.
Perhaps surprisingly, the plot doesn’t feel bogged down by having several sub-messages. Rather the film manages to stay fun, sharp and emotionally impactful throughout. The action sequences are expertly choreographed and Tom Holland knows how to move like Spider-Man should (his dancing training clearly working to his advantage for the role).
Is this the best Spider-Man movie yet? That’s difficult to answer. Both Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield started their Spider-Man careers with origin stories; Tom Holland started his with an epic fight scene as a supporting character in another superhero’s movie. By the time we meet Tom Holland’s Peter Parker he’s already been bitten and already decided to put his new powers to a good use. Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn’t need to retread the same ground. It puts Peter Parker in places of his life that we haven’t explored with the first five films. Therefore, there’s plenty of freedom; freedom which Marvel has used wisely.
Toby Maguire set the bar for who and what a cinematic exploration of Spider-Man should be; Andrew Garfield offered a different approach; Tom Holland is the best of both and in that way is quite possibly the perfect Spider-Man. If Marvel continues to bring us Spider-Man of this quality then there’s no doubt that Tom Holland’s run as the webbed wonder could become legendary.
Awesome spidy movie
so much action and i never thought there would be a day when tony stark woud enhance peter's spidy costume(looks epic and looks similar to normal except you see the upgrade which is wicked) to something like this. Cant wait to see more of spiderman
Spider-boy and Iron Pimp
By Future Metal
Hands down the worst Spider-Man to limp on to the big screen. Marvel seemed intent on destroying the history of their most successful character (possibly because they don’t own it?), this wasn’t the independent boy genius that I remember reading about as a child. No in Marvel’s version we have a cool popular kid pimped out in an iron man suit that is created by Tony Stark!!!! No sorry Marvel that’s not my Spider-Man, this is an insult to his name.
Just wrong 🤬💩.
Nope. This isn’t watchable
God Hollywood really needs to take a good look at itself. Maybe in recent times too preoccupied deciding who’s left on the silver screen, who isn’t being suspected of groping the film crew or wardrobe department, or worse. But this franchise has really scraped the barrel. Take away the green screen effects, and you really have an empty plot, filled with attempts at dated humour. It’s bloody awful. I watched less than and hour and had to press the stop button. I found it totally rubbish. I feel sorry for Toby Maguire, as his generational Spider-Man was at least watchable. I bought this film based on reviews including Rotten Tomatoes. How it goes to prove in life, never listen to what other people say.

It was available for rent and now suddenly the date is for the 20th. Wtf happened?????
Worst Marvel film ever
I can’t believe I’m saying it but that was even worse the Superman v Batman.
I’ve been a massive fan of Marvel and DC but that film is a farce.
Daredevil comparing to this movie is like Lord of the rings next to Inbetweeners. (Though the latter was funny).
A perfect 5/7 for Spidey. I wasn't convinced on Tom Holland when he was first announced but I can't imagine anyone better suited now.
