“Does whatever a spider can!”
This was the perfect Spider-Man movie I’ve been waiting for. Hell, they even opened the movie with the Spider-Man theme song from the 60s cartoon!
Tom was indeed the perfect Spider-Man in my eyes. He had the wit, the smarts, and the looks. I’m just glad they skipped the whole Uncle Ben dying, great power comes great responsibility thing, and how he got his powers.
We start off in high school with a 15-year-old Peter Parker still getting to know his powers and the everyday life of a teenager. Peter Parker is coming home from the events of Captain America: Civil War and Tony is giving him the Spidey suit to keep and to do low-level crime-stopping for the meanwhile. If anything big comes around he needs to report it to Happy and he would be called when something big comes around or needed. But what teenager listens… Right?
We also start this movie getting to know the Adrian Toomes/The Vulture, who is part of the cleanup crew cleaning up the mess from the first Avengers movie. Well, he and his team get laid off due to Tony Stark having the government clean it up. Adrian is out for revenge and to make money any way possible. But with a little help from Phineas Mason/The Tinkerer he finds a use for the alien armor and weapons and starts making things to sell in the market, along with the Vulture suit and crew.
This movie played very well, with no dull moments. But the best part there was no world ending moments. The fights were not out of this world but you still felt it. It was a good fight between the villains in this movie.
I liked the whole kid in high school, awkward moments, crushes, and of course, funny best friends. Also, being a teenager with these powers and not being able to say anything to anyone about it. I feel it’s so much pressure for one kid to deal with all that, along with school, work, and that one high school bully without doing anything. Acting on his anger means he will hurt or even kill that bully. And don’t forget, he can’t tell his crush that he’s Spider-Man, even though she really likes Spidey a lot.
Overall, I really enjoyed Spider-Man: Homecoming. I liked all the detail they put into Peter being in high school. There were also a lot of Easter eggs, some of which were pretty epic. <<coughing>> Miles Morales!
I give this movie a solid 9 out of 10
Pros – everything
Cons- MJ (you’ll know what I’m talking about when you see it)
