Movie Review – Spider-Man Homecoming***1/2


This is the third time our friendly neighborhood Spider-man has a new man by the name Peter Parker. Tom Holland a British actor reprises the role this time with an American accent and he does a wonderful job both in and out of his costume. Michael Keaton on the other hand has probably got a post graduate doctorate in the bird kingdom having played the Bat, the eagle (I guess in Bird-man) and now a Vulture. Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark has a guest role as Tom’s mentor and the like between the Avengers and the Spidey.

I had lot of fun watching the film but having a reboot so soon had a over kill effect and frankly beyond the usual one liners and few clever scenes, there was nothing new to get out of it. Sure we start at Peter Parker’s school this time and for once we did not get the whole spider bite and uncle getting killed this time but eventually it was not enough. I did like the vulture though as it reminded me of what I like about the Dark Knight Series. It had a realistic feel to it. The guy has his reasons for doing what he did and at the end of the day he was just a regular gay trying to meet ends for his family via wrong means.

Kids will like it as this is how Spider-man is meant to be . light, witty and fun.
