Spider-Man: Homecoming

Director: Jon Watts

Producer: Kevin Feige, Amy Pascal

Screenplay: Jonathan Goldstein

Cast: Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marisa Tomei

Runtime: 133min

Rating: 8/10

PLOT: After eight years, Peter Parker is contrived into the Avengers to help with an internal contention, but when Stark tells him that he isn't good enough for the work Parker quits his school's academic decathlon at Midtown School of Science and Technology to focus more on crime-fighting activities as Spider-Man.

REVIEW: Young Parker's acting can't be said to be amazing but Tom Holland did manage a place in every fan's heart by his innocence and hard work, was revealed in his Spider-Man character. Tom Holland being a teenage high school boy with superpowers while also being very humble was a performance considered praiseworthy. His debut as the beloved webslinger raises a lot of expectations for the next Spider-Man movies. The scene where young Parker tried to pull two parts of a ship is one of the best scenes from the movie. That scene alone will take fans back to the moment of the previous series where the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man stops a running train with his spider webs. 

The team of producers and directors tried to keep the entire film very simple and realistic as much as possible. Keeping Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man to help Parker throughout the movie was quite an important aspect. It made sense since Parker needed someone to make him familiar of his own capabilities. Robert Downey Jr. played a fun and easy going character who adds a lot of appeal. Overall, this is just the start of another great series of Spider-Man movies which was missing for a long time, and most of the fans have already agreed that this is better than the Amazing Spider-Man movies. Audiences are eagerly waiting for the next sequels of Tom Holland's Spider-Man.
