Spider-man finally has his homecoming as he is now in the Marvel cinematic universe as he had his first outing among the other heroes in Civil War. Now we get to see what life is like for Peter Parker day in and out as he tries to juggle everything while being Spider-man and one of the smartest kids in High School.
I love the fact that this is a origin story but without the filler we have seen so any times now it was getting boring. We get the hint that something has happened and to the Spider-man fans we all know that happened but they do not drum it into our heads. This leaves some mystery and time to tell us in another creative way later down the line.
As we got a glimpse of Tom Holland in Civil War we got the sense that Spider-man will be the quick witted excited chap. But could he hold down a a full feature? I have got to say Holland has so much character he brings a lot to the screen. Not only is he a good Spider-man he is also a good Peter Parker. Confident yet still learning the heroic ways of being a superhero yet awkward as intelligent geeks can be.
Michael Keaton can be added to the haunting villains of the MCU as he makes a good Vulture. There has been few and far between any satisfying villains but finally we have a compelling one for sure. His beliefs founded on that the big guys will always step on the small guys is effective to many and as much as his motivations are twisted yet conceivable. From the get go you get the idea that you don’t want to step on this guy’s toes and trust me you really want to avoid doing that. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do Keaton shows he is formidable in the eyes on adversary which is a scary trait.
Iron-Man does not steal the show as many were worried about. It was good to see that all these heroes are connected and are within arms reach of each other in the ever changing world of Marvel. His input is welcome and shapes the story of a growing hero with many trials and tribulations along the way.
As a added bonus it is a fun movie to watch, loads of humorous moments and astonishing action scenes along the way. The wisecracks and quips would weave seamlessly between conversations and each moment. Not only that but there are moments when the doom and gloom the bar is certainly raised as you really feel the tension. This movie manages to get you to laugh out loud then has you to sit on the edge of your seat. It can feel like a high school teen drama at times, which I don’t blame the movie for as it is based in a high school with young teens thankfully it does not dwell on this for too long.
