Is this the true Spider-Man?
is directed by #JonWatts
& stars #TomHolland
as our WebHead. It's another reboot & it ain't bad.
High school Peter deals with bullies, crushes, & keeping his superhero identity a secret. Peter tries proving to Stark (#RDJ
) that he can be an Avenger. He gets the chance to prove it when Adrian Toomes, Vulture (#MichaelKeaton
) plans on using alien tech as weapons.
First off, Holland IS Peter Parker/Spider-Man. He's an awkward nerdy Peter, & a witty comedic Spidey. He feels like a real kid. Spacing out & trying to talk to that one person. Perfect casting choice. Peter's buddies are also pretty good. Ned (#JacobBatalon
) had plenty of funny moments. #Zendaya
's Michelle also had her moments. Pete's love interest, #LauraHarrier
was probably the weakest. There weren't any moments where I bought into their "relationship". #MarisaTomei
as Aunt May was real good. You bought into their family bond. A surprise was Vulture. You understood why he does all this evil shit. We spend time with him & we get a good backstory. There's a great scene involving Pete & Adrian as themselves which is perfect. Stark's scenes were minimum, as we all thought he was gonna be in the entire film. His scenes were good, & weren't forced.
The action is good. Nothing shit, but nothing that memorable. The Washington Monument sequence was really good; intense, yet fast. The boat battle was okay. But the worst was the final plane fight. It was choppy, convoluted, & hard to see. When it came to Spidey swinging around, bloody perfect.
Positives: Holland as our lead. He blew me away in one scene. Most of the cast. Another decent MCU villain. A solid musical score. A few cameos. The D.C. sequence. Good comedy. Spidey's new suit was cool.
Negatives: Final action scene was messy. The love interest wasn't strong. One huge continuity error. Not sure if it's a mistake or part of Marvel's plan.
Homecoming is a good time. I still prefer Spider-Man 2, but it's way better than the Amazing series. It's One Thumb Up👍. Enjoy, & like always, this is SirMovieGeek telling you to Geek On!! #geekingout #moviereviews #filmlovers #moviecommunity #SpideyIsBack
