What makes this homecoming fun is [Tom] Holland, who seems as excited about Spider-Man as his classmates even though he is Spider-Man.
August 3, 2017
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.

July 17, 2017
A strangely oblivious film, one that undercuts its story with exactly the sort of praise-hungriness that its hero learns to overcome.
July 13, 2017
A film that smuggles in a delightfully dorky high school saga under the banner of a too familiar superhero one.
July 13, 2017
This is the Spidey movie we've been waiting for. It's also the best Spider-Man movie of the bunch.
July 9, 2017
An utter gas, a fast and very funny superflick that inserts Spidey into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe without ever losing sight of what makes him unique and beloved.
July 7, 2017
What are the odds that a film with six credited screenwriters and a director (Jon Watts) with more Onion content than anything else could recapture the youthful thrill of superhero movies in general and the youthful appeal of Spider-Man in particular?

Watts and his five other screenwriters are better at the small stuff - the jaunty high school scenes - than the kapowie CGI battle sequences.

If they're going to be as fizzy and funny and warmhearted as this, keep 'em coming.
July 6, 2017
The movie's not flawless, but it is fun, a big improvement on the non-wowing The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel of recent years.

No cobwebs on Spidey - Spider-Man: Homecoming feels breezily, pleasingly fresh.
July 6, 2017
The newest star system in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is packed with surprises, excitement and quick-witted laughs.

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" is breezy fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
July 6, 2017
An authentic, refreshingly nerdy and high-spirited reboot of the well-worn Marvel franchise ...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
July 6, 2017
The costumed antics of Homecoming are a joy to watch, with tense set pieces and well-choreographed action, but some of the movie's brightest spots are in its more down-to-earth moments.

July 5, 2017
Just as the character's primary goal here is about proving himself, in terms of Marvel injecting a rejuvenating vitality into its wayward wall-crawler, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" clears that bar and then some.
July 5, 2017
Against considerable odds, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" finds its pace and rhythm by the end.
July 5, 2017
It delivers eye-popping spectacle in spades, but it's the characters that make it count.

July 5, 2017
Even those of us who regard the Marvel aesthetic as a plague on world cinema can find much in Spider-Man: Homecoming to be charmed by.
July 5, 2017
Beginning with a score that riffs on the late-'70s cartoon and closing with a slyly funny after-credits scene, it's as sure-footed as its arachnid namesake.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
July 5, 2017
The movie lacks inspiration; even the big "twist" is more worthy of a suppressed chuckle than a dropped jaw - it's like something pulled out of a bad soap opera.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 5, 2017
Adolescent in all the right ways: limber, reckless, full of youthful brio and uncertainty.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
July 5, 2017
The movie breaks no new ground, and action sequences that were intended to be thrilling - such as an epic battle on the Staten Island Ferry - just sit there on the screen, incapable of stirring a single pulse, but content in their competence.

July 3, 2017
This third time's the charm in Marvel's pantheon of Spider-Man portrayers. Tobey Maguire was pretty good, Andrew Garfield was so-so, but Holland ... Well, when you've got it, you've got it.

July 3, 2017
A comprehensively crowd-pleasing success.

For a film with six screenwriters, Homecoming creates a remarkably coherent vision of a smart kid still dumb about the world, battling the learning curves of his double lives.

As long as the kids stay in the picture -- thankfully, that's most of the movie -- Spider-Man: Homecoming is the fun playdate most of us have been looking forward to since the character stole Cap's shield last spring in Captain America: Civil War.

June 30, 2017
It's a relief to see a superhero engaged in deeply human activities, like getting ready for a date... This Spider-Man is still just a kid, after all, and he has no energy for existential angst -- just dealing with hormones is enough.
June 30, 2017
A welcome narrowing of the Marvel mega-verse away from alien invasions and globe-smashing supervillains and back towards something more intimate.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 30, 2017
Mr. Holland looks and sounds more like a teen than the actors who've previously suited up for this series, and he has fine support from a cast that includes Jacob Batalon as Peter's best friend.
June 29, 2017
It's not only the best Spider-Man movie -- it's one of the best films in Marvel's cinematic universe.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

Director Jon Watts nicely handles the scenes of adolescent banter and awkwardness; if anything, they're more engaging than the action sequences.

June 29, 2017
Spider-Man: Homecoming is both a homecoming for the character as well as a movie in which Spider-Man literally goes to homecoming-a fitting re-introduction and an endearingly goofy teen flick.
June 29, 2017
The first Spidey flick as ebullient as the comics you read when you were a kid.
June 29, 2017
What's particularly nice about this movie is what it doesn't have: too many bad guys, an overly complicated plot and a bunch of ridiculous fight scenes that are so needlessly complex you can't tell what's happening in them.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 29, 2017
That the movie comes off as loose and sweet and light on its feet as it does feels like sort of minor Marvel miracle.

News Flash: Tom Holland is the best movie Spider-Man ever. He finds the kid inside the famous red onesie and brings out the kid in even the most hardened filmgoer.

The magic of Homecoming is that it belongs more to the John Hughes cinematic universe than the Avengers'.

A funny, sunny superhero movie for the whole family.

You know what? Superhero cynicism aside, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is really fun.

Marvel has finally started to figure out what the future of superhero movies might look like.

Hang in there, True Believers: Maybe it'll get better the second time around.
June 29, 2017
Feels a little more punchy, laugh-filled, and exciting than one might expect from a property that's already been given plenty of chances to succeed.
June 29, 2017
The appeal of this particular Spider-Boy is all too basic: In his lunge for valor, he keeps falling, and he keeps getting up.
