Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
Peter Parker, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark, tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in New York City while fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man when a new threat emerges.
I’ve always liked Spider-man. I’ve been reading him (not steadily mind you, I took a long break from comics completely) since Todd McFarlane’s run in 1990 (where he wrote and drew him). I’ve seen all the movies and while I was never a fan of Andrew Garfield’s version of the web-slinger, I quite enjoyed Tom Holland’s take in Civil War and was certain to see this (as I am any Marvel movie, even if it’s not Marvel Studios making it). So while on vacation in Bangor, Maine (not the most exciting place but a nice quiet, small town), we went and saw it in 3D.
I am glad that while this is reboot there is no origin story and no Uncle Ben getting shot. A little line of “you know what your Aunt went through” is plenty. Tom Holland is excellent as both Spiderman and Peter Parker. For me, though, I am tired of seeing him in high school. I guess that’s what most fans want but I always liked him a little older and more settled in his life. It was great fun to have Tony Stark/Iron Man make some small appearances in this movie. Michael Keaton shines as a new and improved Vulture (the one from the comics always sucked, at least every time I read him). He’s a (mostly) believable character and is genuinely creepy/smart/threatening. I like how he had a much more high tech suit that ever before, though it does take away from the fact that Peter is supposed to be a brilliant inventor/scientist who does it all on his own. I suppose this could come in later films.
Plenty of action, likable characters, good acting and lots of humor sprinkled in. It sure makes you wish other companies would just let Marvel put the X-Men, Wolverine (or X-23) and Fantastic Four in where they belong. I have to say I didn’t care for the music but I’ll admit that I really don’t like anything modern, for me good music stopped being made (except in a few rare cases) by 2000. I also don’t think Marisa Tomei should be playing Aunt May, don’t get me wrong she’s an excellent actor but WAY to young for the part. She has admitted this herself.
The 3D here was good but not awe-inspiring. If you love Spiderman/Marvel movies it’s worth the extra $ but for a causal fan I think regular 2D would be fine. Overall I really enjoyed this movie but it doesn’t hold up to wonderful films like Wonder Woman and Logan. So I give it 7.5 out of 10. I do recommend this movie to any comic book/Spiderman or just action film fan. Please don’t bring young children (as I saw when we went) there are some violent/scary scenes and a little harsh language. Stan Lee has his usual cameo and it’s not bad, he’s gotten better at them over the years. Stay right ’till the end for 2 post-credit scenes (the last one is funny). Until next time!
