Movie Info

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine--distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man--but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Critic Reviews for Spider-Man: Homecoming

All Critics (307) | Top Critics (44)

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.

August 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A strangely oblivious film, one that undercuts its story with exactly the sort of praise-hungriness that its hero learns to overcome.

July 17, 2017 | Full Review…

A film that smuggles in a delightfully dorky high school saga under the banner of a too familiar superhero one.

July 13, 2017 | Full Review…

This is the Spidey movie we've been waiting for. It's also the best Spider-Man movie of the bunch.

July 13, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for Spider-Man: Homecoming


We didn't need another Spider-man origin story, and thank goodness this isn't one. Tom Holland's "Aw shucks, I get to hang with the Avengers" schtick started to get old in Civil War, and gets played out quickly in this film, but there is so much more to like here. The villain isn't a nihilistic madman who simply wants to destroy the world (he actually has a decent motive), Peter Parker's problems are both large-scale and grounded, and most of the characters are likable. Marvel hit a lull for a while, but now seems to be back on the uptick.

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.
