Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark, tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens, New York City, with fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man as a new threat, the Vulture, emerges.
The appeal of this particular Spider-Boy is all too basic: In his lunge for valor, he keeps falling, and he keeps getting up.
Feels a little more punchy, laugh-filled, and exciting than one might expect from a property that s already been given plenty of chances to succeed.
Hang in there, True Believers: Maybe it ll get better the second time around.
Marvel has finally started to figure out what the future of superhero movies might look like.
You know what? Superhero cynicism aside, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is really fun.
A funny, sunny superhero movie for the whole family.
The magic of Homecoming is that it belongs more to the John Hughes cinematic universe than the Avengers .
News Flash: Tom Holland is the best movie Spider-Man ever. He finds the kid inside the famous red onesie and brings out the kid in even the most hardened filmgoer.
That the movie comes off as loose and sweet and light on its feet as it does feels like sort of minor Marvel miracle.
What s particularly nice about this movie is what it doesn t have: too many bad guys, an overly complicated plot and a bunch of ridiculous fight scenes that are so needlessly complex you can t tell what s happening in them.
