SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is a fun ride you should buy a ticket for.

The latest Spider-Man reboot is...actually pretty good.


I was fortunate enough last night catch the early showing of Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Although I would have preferred to see it in IMAX 3D, the standard screen worked just fine.

As it was assumed and predicted, we don't get a Spider-Man origin story or Uncle Ben death this time around -- and really, that's fine.  We all know the story, right?  So Homecoming just hits the ground running.  We get a brief glimpse of Peter getting the Spidey suit from Stark Industries just moments before his appearance in Captain America: Civil War.

But before all that, the film picks up eight years ago with Adrian Toomes cleaning crew getting ready to start on the Chitauri clean-up.  They never get the chance because big government steps in and takes over, but not before Toomes steals a few pieces of alien technology.

Flash forward and we find out that Toomes and company have been building advanced weaponry from the tech and are selling on the black market -- and this has all been very profitable for Toomes.

Meanwhile, Peter, like always, is trying to balance being a teenager and being a crime-fighting superhero.  Also, Peter has a crush on an upperclassman, Liz.  Long story short, Liz is Toomes' daughter.  So there's some conflict.

The film climaxes with Toomes trying to steal merchandise from an Avengers plane -- and Peter attempts to foil the heist.


I was pleasantly surprised to find out that this movie has a very small, subtle MCU arc, which...thank god.  And something else that's very refreshing: this film is very light and frolicky, which is, at its core, true to the Spider-Man mythos.  The only darkness this film possesses is its main antagonist, Toomes AKA The Vulture (as it should be).

I really enjoyed Tom Holland as Peter and Spider-Man.  I don't really have a favorite, however.  It was also very nice to see a young(er) Spider-Man, too.  Peter is supposed to be 15 in this movie, as opposed to Maguire and Garfield both portraying him as 18+.  This is double awesome because this means we can get at least 3-4 more high school-based Spider-Man movies (as long as Holland doesn't take a dramatic pubescent change -- though he shouldn't...he's already over 18).

The film also makes a great statement at the end of the film with Peter declining to become an official Avenger...yet.  He knows he isn't ready for that yet...and good for him.  Ans good for us, because we love solo Spidey films.  Plus, a character that is present throughout the film finally corrects people on her name, stating, "My friends call me MJ."  So the intro of Mary Jane is done and brief.

I really, really liked Spider-Man: Homecoming.  There are things they got right and things got wrong.  But overall, the film works and is wonderfully entertaining.

What'd you think of Homecoming?
