Spider-Man: Homecoming – Movie Review

Spider-Man: Homecoming – Movie Review

Being a teenage boy is hard work. You have to balance school, sports, band, girls, changes in your body, and being Spider-Man. Wait what?

Peter Parker, the story we’ve seen a thousand times with Toby, Andrew and now Tom Holland. However, I must say that with the full support of Marvel and the reuniting of Spidey into the MCU, this one had a totally different feel. A new high-tech spidey suit from Tony Stark, high school woes, a goofy mascot best friend, a love interest that goes sideways with a crazy twist, TWICE.

Spider-Man is coming off the heels of his Avenger Team-Up from Civil War, (we see clips of that in the film, pretty cool actually to see it from the kid’s point of view), and he wants nothing more than to drop out of school and be an Avenger, unfortunately there is a guy in his town that is stealing alien tech and making new and crazy dangerous weapons out of them. It’s up to Peter to stop it because Tony and Happy won’t return his calls so clearly the Avengers aren’t going to assemble. It’s actually the first Marvel movie to address the WHY DON’T THE AVENGERS ASSEMBLE FOR EVERYTHING question that comes up in every solo film.

There is so much that I don’t want to spoil, but I will say this is probably one of the funniest comic book movies I’ve seen in a long time and there is a TON of great action.

Pros
I think Tom is a great Spider-Man, it's well acted by everyone and the comedic elements were constant throughout the film, which I thoroughly enjoy. Keaton as Vulture is a good fit, the twist made me go "HOLY CRAP NO WAY". That's all you get.
Cons
There isn't a lot of eye candy, Zendaya is 20 and Laura Harrier is actually 27? They're both dressed down to look like high school teenagers so at no point in the film were they sexualized (that's why the babe factor is low). Marisa Tomei is in the movie for like 10 seconds but I feel like they "aunt may'd" her down a little bit so her good looks are a little less stunning than usual. It's all makeup, she's still got it. Honestly it's hard to find cons for this film, I REALLY enjoyed it.
Summary
Probably the funniest film in the MCU. See it in theaters, the action is awesome and they film a bunch in DC so you can see Hashtag Studios in the wide shots if you squint and pretend.
