Spider-Man: Homecoming

In the second reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, a young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero.

Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

The appeal of this particular Spider-Boy is all too basic: In his lunge for valour, he keeps falling, and he keeps getting up.

A welcome narrowing of the Marvel mega-verse away from alien invasions and globe-smashing supervillains and back towards something more intimate.

Mr. Holland looks and sounds more like a teen than the actors who've previously suited up for this series, and he has fine support from a cast that includes Jacob Batalon as Peter's best friend.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is so joyously entertaining that it's enough to temporarily cure any superhero fatigue. There's wit, smarts and a nifty, inventive plot that serves as a reminder of what buoyant fun such films can bring.

It's refreshing, grounded, human and extraordinarily likeable. Bravo.

Spider-Man has been sacrificed here for something bigger, but I’m not sure that something is worth it.

It's a geeky heady treat, albeit one that has a few foibles - but not enough to unpick the web that's been spun on screen.

This Spider-Man is pleasingly diverse and inclusive, delivers a few memorable twists and more than a few big laughs.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is fresh, funny and entertaining, but it ultimately works better as a teen flick than it does as a superhero movie.

The characters and scenarios are familiar, but this is a loose, cool, funny remix that makes them feel fresh again. Plus, it's mercifully short on life lessons from Aunt May.

This film is a great addition to the MCU and the superhero genre as a whole. It doesn't delve into Spider-Man's origins and his uncle's death but on the whole that feels like a good thing. The movie is witty, funny and definitely a nice, more light hearted addition to the huge story ark that Marvel currently has going. We all know the story of uncle Ben by...

I thoroughly enjoyed this. Tom Holland is the best Spiderman yet, capturing perfectly the struggles and learning curve of a teenage superhero. My one criticism would be that the inclusion of Tony Stark and the Avengers felt forced sometimes.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a satisfying return to form of one of the most likeable heroes of the Marvel comic book universe. The story wastes no time in rejigging the conventional origin story that has been done to death. The movie is also instantly more enjoyable by allowing Peter Parker to not be a total loner-type character whilst still maintaining his...
