Critic Reviews for Spider-Man: Homecoming
What makes this homecoming fun is [Tom] Holland, who seems as excited about Spider-Man as his classmates even though he is Spider-Man.
If "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is to be judged solely on its ability to unite a diverse audience behind a fun motion picture, it seems to have succeeded wildly.
A strangely oblivious film, one that undercuts its story with exactly the sort of praise-hungriness that its hero learns to overcome.
A film that smuggles in a delightfully dorky high school saga under the banner of a too familiar superhero one.
This is the Spidey movie we've been waiting for. It's also the best Spider-Man movie of the bunch.
Audience Reviews for Spider-Man: Homecoming
There is, of course, the question of "why" that comes along with this film. Haven't we already been here? Twice? The answer is "no, we haven't". With mucho respect for Spidey creator Steve Ditko, this is the one that remembers the primary rationale for Spidey love: he's a kid. He doesn't know everything. He's only just figuring things out for himself. He's the anti-Superman. So loosen up. And the film does, exuberantly. As well it diversifies the proceedings, updates the action to modern times. Sets the stage for what may follow w/o a great deal of emphasis that diverts from what you're watching. It's just a fun movie. Holland outshines his predecessors and grounding everything is Michael Keaton, whose villain doesn't want to take over the world, only wants his piece of it. A superb job by all.
With a refreshing adolescent vibe and great performances by Tom Holland and Michael Keaton (who plays a surprisingly nuanced villain who has understandable motivations), this is a very entertaining superhero movie that is also smart to skip the character's over-told origins.
Jon Watts untangles the webs in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Web-slinging its way in a little past 2 hours, Spider-Man: Homecoming manages to tell an amusing tale without trying to build up a franchise. While lacking a whole lot of character back story, it manages to blend in with the Marvel cinematic universe as it goes through the ups and downs of being a superhero. The CG is a mixed bag, along with the action, but for the most part, pass fly with bright red and blue colors. Tom Holland puts on a good show. The tone of his voice and line delivery do wonders for his character. Michael Keaton and Marisa Tomei also do a nice job filling in when Tom isn't doing the heavy lifting. Spider-Man: Homecoming swings along for a fun ride through the city. Shall I activate insta-kill?
