Disclaimer : I only became a fan of Marvel (MCU actually) a year ago (hardly a year). I haven’t read the comics (I don’t know where to start). So this review is by an amateur. Please take this with a grain of salt.
” Can’t you just be a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man?”
Homecoming was entertaining. Not a groundbreaking movie but still fun and enjoyable. I was fully engrossed throughout the film.
Let me start by saying how perfect Tom Holland is for the role.
And… I know there were a lot of discussion about Tony Stark’s role in the film. But I assure you it’s a very minimal role. It is still a Spiderman movie.
Now, I don’t know if Homecoming is the greatest Spiderman movie. The one I’ve seen before is The Amazing Spiderman duolgy (the one with Andrew Garfield). Homecoming is so SO much better.
I also liked Homecoming better than The Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 ( which left me a bit disappointed ). Homecoming had a better plot and villain. It was funnier too (at least to me).
” I want you to understand… I’ll do anything to protect my family. I know you know what I’m talking about.”
Speaking of villains, I loved Vulture. The line between right and wrong blurred a bit, which I loved. There were proper motives to why Vulture does what he does.
I loved how different sides of Peter were shown – an eager to please avenger hopeful, a hero who wants to save the world and an awkward high schooler. This was the part I loved most. Homecoming showed how even after fighting superheroes and villians alike , Peter was still a teen (who is just trying his best). I liked how the high school theme wasn’t just background noise. All the supporting characters were actually central to the story.
” So, to become an Avenger, are there like trials, or an interview?”
Also Peter Parker was just too adorable.
I wished Aaron Davis ( Donald Glover) and Michelle (Zendaya) had more screen time.
Unfortunately no MCU film has yet topped Winter Soldier. The action scenes were not amazing like in the Captain America trilogy.
I was also hoping for something, a tidbit that would connect Homecoming to the MCU or maybe to Infinity War.
Anyway, Spiderman Homecoming was a great film. Do check it out. It won’t disappoint.
