Movie Review

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Featured Actors
Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man)
Michael Keaton (Adrian Toomes/The Vulture)
Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man)
Marisa Tomei (May Parker)

Peter Parker is a nerd-freshman in high school with his best friend, Ned. He has a crush on a senior, Liz. And a loner-type friend, Michelle. But Peter has a secret, one he keeps from even Aunt May – he is the hero known as Spider-Man! When Peter sees illegal weapons being sold – weapons made seemingly out of Chitauri parts scattered over New York by The Avengers – he wonders if he's up to the challenge. Despite Peter's doubts, he yearns to be a hero like Iron Man. Yet, Tony Stark believes that Parker's place should be as a friendly neighborhood protector (unlike Tony's global team). Can Peter keep this supersized secret from everyone, even his enemies?

Even though the setting changes many times, the story centers around Peter Parker and Tony Stark.

I liked how there are other things happening within a scene other than the camera's main focus.

My favorite scene would be when Peter is interrogating a witness and he freaks the witness out. This shows that Peter is still learning how to be a savior, while not being scary or intimidating. However, this soft side of Peter helps him protect more people, unlike some of the heroes in The Avengers.

Rating:  4 out of 5
