SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING- MOVIE REVIEW* SPOILERS

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS FOR SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING FOLLOW!

I JUST SAW SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING YESTERDAY, AND IT WAS AWESOME. IT’S PROBABLY MY FAVORITE SPIDER-MAN MOVIE. I’LL ADMIT, MY EXPECTATIONS WERE PROBABLY A LITTLE TOO HIGH, BUT IT WAS STILL A GOOD MOVIE. IN FACT I WENT TO THE AMC AND GOT THE BEST SEAT, DIRECT MIDDLE, AND ON THE CENTRAL ROW, SO YEAH, AS ALWAYS I’LL START WITH THE

CHARACTERS

PETER PARKER/SPIDER-MAN

PLAYED BY: TOM HOLLAND

RATING: 4.7/5.0

I ACTUALLY THINK THIS IS THE BEST PETER PARKER, AND HIS JOKES WERE PRETTY MUCH SPOT ON, IT ALSO HELPED THAT TOM HOLLAND ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE A HIGH SCHOOLER. YOU REALLY GOT INTO HIS HEAD IN THIS MOVIE, AND THE FACT THAT HE TURNED DOWN BEING AN AVENGER AT THE END OF THE MOVIE, AS WELL AS THE IRON SPIDER SUIT (THAT STRANGELY LOOKS LIKE DOC OCK’S “SUPERIOR” SUIT), REALLY SHOWS THAT HE IS RESPONSIBLE AND HAS GREAT POWER. WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT IS SHOWN INSTEAD OF BEING SAID, AND THAT’S DEFINITELY ONE OF THE OVER-USED PARTS IN SPIDER-MAN MOVIES, “WITH GREAT POWER, COMES GREAT RESPONSIBILITY”.

NED LEEDS

PLAYED BY: JACOB BATALON

RATING: 4.2/5.0

THE COMIC RELIEF AND BEST FRIEND OF PETER PARKER IN THIS MOVIE IS NED LEEDS, WHO MAKES SOME HILARIOUS LINES AND REALLY STANDS OUT AS THE MAN IN THE CHAIR, I’M GLAD, HOWEVER THAT THEY DIDN’T TAKE TOO MUCH FROM GANKE LEE (WHO HE’S BASED OFF OF IN THE COMICS), AND MADE HIM “THE GUY IN THE CHAIR”.

ADRIAN TOOMES/THE VULTURE

PLAYED BY: MICHAEL KEATON

RATING: 4.4/5.0

A GOOD VILLAIN IN THE MCU MOVIES FOR ONCE! AND YOU REALLY FEEL FOR HIM IN SCENES, AND I’M GLAD HE WASN’T AN OLD, DECREPIT, CRANKY GUY LIKE HE IS IN THE COMICS AND IT REALLY ADDS SOMETHING HE’S REVEALED TO BE LIZ’S DAD.

LIZ ALLAN (TOOMES?)

PLAYED BY: LAURA HARRIER

RATING: 3.2/5.0

LIZ ALLAN… MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT IN THIS MOVIE, IN THE COMICS SHE ACTUALLY IS A GOOD SIDE CHARACTER, BUT MAKING A FLAT CHARACTER AND LOVE INTEREST IN THIS MOVIE WAS A HUGE MISTAKE… AND SHE’S KINDA UGLY TOO NOT TO MENTION. THE ONLY COOL PART WITH HER WAS WHEN SHE WAS REVEALED TO BE THE VULTURE’S DAUGHTER, WHICH WAS SOMETHING DIDN’T EXPECT UNTIL PETER WALKED UP TO THE DOOR.

HAROLD “HAPPY” HOGAN

PLAYED BY: JON FAVREAU

RATING: 3.4/5.0

THE “BABY-SITTER” OF PETER, OR TONY’S LOOKOUT ON PETER, WITH SOME REALLY FUNNY SCENES AT THE END, LIKE THE BATHROOM SCENE AND THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT SCENE.

TONY STARK/IRON MAN

PLAYED BY: ROBERT DOWNEY JR.

RATING: 3.0/5.0

WELL, HERE WE HAVE DADDY STARK, JUST KIDDING, HE JUST ACTS LIKE A REALLY OVERPROTECTIVE PARENT AROUND PETER. WITH A VERY SURPRISING CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT WITH HIS PROPOSAL TO PEPPER POTTS, WHO RETURNED AFTER LEAVING IN IRON MAN 3. “WELL, I’VE CARRYING THIS  IN MY POCKET SINCE 2008”- HAPPY HOGAN, REFERRING TO THE ENGAGEMENT RING. IN FACT I CAN REMEMBER SOMEONE IN THE ROW ABOVE SHOUTING WHAT THE? WHEN THAT SCENE HAPPENED.

AUNT MAY 

PLAYED BY: MARISA TOMEI

RATING: 3.7/5.0

I’LL ADMIT I WAS SKEPTICAL OF THEM CHANGING AUNT MAY FROM OLD DECREPIT LADY TO YOUNG, MOM-ISH AUNT. BUT IT MADE WAY MORE SENSE THEN HER BEING AN OLD LADY BECAUSE SERIOUSLY, A 15-YEAR-OLD’S AUNT IS GOING TO BE IN HER LATE 30’s-EARLY 40’s, NOT GREAT GRANDMA AGE. I ACTUALLY LIKE THIS REPRESENTATION WITH HILARIOUS AND ABRUPT CLIFFHANGER ENDING WITH FINDING OUT PETER WAS SPIDER-MAN.

AND THEN THERE’S OTHER CHARACTERS… LIKE MICHELLE, THE ODD AND VERY RANDOM DEADPAN, STUDENT PLAYED BY ZENDAYA, BECAUSE DISNEY NEEDED A DISNEY CHANNEL STAR TO HELP ADVERTISE THE MOVIE FOR SOME REASON, AND THAT WAS PRETTY BAD MISTAKE, LIKE WHY ON EARTH DOES SHE INTENTIONALLY STAY IN DETENTION TO SKETCH PEOPLE’S HEADS WHEN THEY’RE DEPRESSED? AND IF SHE’S SUCH A BIG CHARACTER, WHY DOES SHE HAVE 5 LITERAL SECONDS OF SCREEN TIME?

OVERALL REVIEW:

I PERSONALLY THOUGHT THAT THIS MOVIE WAS REALLY GOOD, IT WASN’T GREAT, BUT IT WAS GOOD, IT’S PROBABLY MY 2nd FAVORITE MCU MOVIE SO FAR, I ALSO LOVED THAT THIS WAS A FUN AND LIGHT TAKE, LIKE THE ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN SERIES, AND NOT THE GRITTY AND DARK TAKE, THE OTHER MOVIES HAD. TOM HOLLAND WAS GREAT AS PETER PARKER, AND I THINK IT’S INTERESTING HOW THEY THREW EVERYONE OFF ABOUT STUFF, AND THE SUIT A.I. “KAREN” WAS A WEIRD FEATURE FOR THE SUIT AND WAS ONE OF THE VERY FEW THINGS I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THIS MOVIE.

I ALSO LIKED ALL THE EASTER EGGS AND COMIC BOOK REFERENCES IT HAD, LIKE FEATURING AARON DAVIS, MILES MORALES’ UNCLE DROP AN EASTER EGG THAT MILES MAY BE COMING, THE SCORPION WAS COOL, OF COURSE, THE VULTURE WAS AWESOME, EVEN HIS HOMEMADE SUIT WAS COOL, HEY, I NOW HAVE AN IDEA FOR MY NEXT D.I.Y. HALLOWEEN COSTUME! AND SERIOUSLY, DON’T BELIEVE WHAT THEY SAY WHEN THEY SAY THAT MICHELLE IS A GREAT CHARACTER.  SHE HAD 5 SECONDS OF SCREEN TIME AND IS A EXTREMELY RANDOM AND UNNECESSARY PART OF THIS MOVIE. 

MOVIE RATING:

4/5 SPIDER-MAN HEADS

THIS IS THE END OF THE SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING EVENT I’VE BEEN DOING, AND THINGS WILL GO BACK TO NORMAL WITHIN THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
