Spider-Man Homecoming is a must see!
Yes, we’ve seen the story before. A kid becomes a spider superhero that saves New York City time and time again.
We saw the introduction of this Spider-Man in the Avengers movie, but for once I saw a Spider-Man I can believe in.
Tobey Maguire’s version was always a little too nerdy, Andrew Garfield was a little to goth, but Tom Holland is dead on.
I loved the fact that this movie made Spider-Man’s character more relatable and more realistic.
They literally brought him in to present day by having him vlog is early experiences as a super hero, they made his aunt younger, and they gave him a best friend who knows he’s Spider-Man because realistically how long could a 15-year-old keep that kind of a secret?
I also loved the cross references that have become routine in Marvel Universe movies. Tony Stark, Pepper Potts, and Captain America all make appearances; and for all you comic book junkies they even allude to Miles Morales being present.
Overall, this is a great movie that the whole family will enjoy!
Go see it!
