Review: “Spiderman Homecoming”

Title: Spiderman Homecoming
Director: Jon Watts
Writers: Jonathan Goldstein (screenplay), John Francis Daley (screenplay)
Stars: Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr.

Having had a fighting experience with The Avengers, Peter Parker a.k.a Spiderman (Tom Holland) returned home with excitement to face another adventure with the superheroes. With a mentor of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Peter expected to do more action and prove himself as a decent superhero who can be a part of Avengers. When days passing by with no call from Stark to join the Avengers, the so-not-patient Peter decided to find himself a significant crime to handle and show to Stark that he is someone to consider as superhero and not a your everyday teenager. That’s when Vulture (Michael Keaton) and his gang, who got their power from alien stones (Chitauri), emerged as new and dangerous villain. Will Peter prove that he is good enough as a superhero to save the day?

Spiderman Homecoming gave me a quite different vibe compared to previous Spiderman movies. I feel like it was more family friendly, or teenagers friendly to be precise. Though (of course) there were fighting scenes, they were relatively safe, meaning no excessive blood or dismembered body part (maybe I am exaggerating, sorry 😅) or any kind of wound and cut that you usually saw after a tough fight between a superhero and a villain. Even the last fight between Spiderman and Vulture was not too harsh, proven when Peter could still stand after being beaten up just couple of minutes before. Now this can be good or bad depending on someone’s preference. For me it’s somehow okay-ish, means I can accept it but would not mind to have bolder fighting scenes since I like action movies. 

Other things that I like about the movie was the humor and the character. I feel like the humor was sufficient in term of amount and also placed properly along the movie. Peter’s character as a teenager who was curious, excited, naive and ambitious, was believable and made me fell in love. I think Tom Holland did a good job, and honestly, he is my favorite Peter Parker so far from all Spiderman movies. Ned as Peter’s best friend was also funny and fit the role perfectly. 

Overall it was a funny and very entertaining movie to watch. I am looking forward to see the next movie of Spiderman 🙂
