Movie Review: Spider-Man: Homecoming

2 reboots. 3 actors. 6 films. 15 years. That's a lot for one character, but somehow, Spider-Man: Homecoming managed to bring something fresh while capturing the spirit and energy of the beloved superhero. I thought that a much younger and grounded version of Peter Parker was a smart choice and I genuinely appreciated the fact that we didn't have to go through another version of how he became the Spider-Man or of Uncle Ben being killed for a third time.

The narrative was complex without being convoluted, the direction was good, and the pacing was a lot better than I anticipated. Tom Holland did an exceptionally better job with the character than both Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire. There was just so much enthusiasm and charisma in the kid that it made the dynamics of the film different and light. I also thought Michael Keaton as Vulture was great and he had possibly one of the most fleshed out villain narratives in any superhero film - there was a good amount of character progression, which I was pleasantly surprised. The action sequences, while executed well, seemed much less cinematic and sweeping though. It was good for the most part, but lacked a certain amount of intensity and originality. 

Spider-Man: Homecoming was a familiar yet refreshing take on a formula. It's just as good as some of the previous Spider-Man films, but with a different take and still retained the essentials that made its predecessors a standout.
