After the lacklustre showing of the Amazing Spider-man, Marvel has gone back to the drawing board for this highly-anticipated reboot starring talented young newcomer Tom Holland as Peter Parker.
Many will question why Marvel has rebooted the franchise so soon after the underwhelming response to the previous attempt. The franchise is still very popular and Marvel have chosen to take a fresh new approach this time around to please old school fans as well as newcomers and for the most part it works.
The new lead Tom Holland brings a great deal of charisma and wit to the franchise. Having made a small appearance in Captain America, we now get to see how the new Spider-man fares in a full feature blockbuster.
Jon Watts directs this reboot and brings a fresh approach to the style of the movie, cutting back on the mayhem of the previous entry to bring a more balanced and well-paced superhero movie.
The character development is also well done giving the audience a reason to root for Peter Parker.
The visuals are also a lot more fun and pleasing to the eye this time around and Watts does a great job of keeping things entertaining without feeling too chaotic.
The formula works really well creating a good balance of visual candy and a well paced script.
Composer Michael Giacchino brings the movie to life with a fantastic score arguably one of the best in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Michael Keaton does a fantastic job as The Vulture and although not the most memorable villain does bring plenty of thrills to the reboot with some spectacular battle scenes with the ferry and final battle the standout showdowns.
Spiderman: Homecoming brings in Tony Starks (Iron Man) as Peter Parker’s mentor. Its a bold movie bringing in such an iconic figure and it mostly pays off.
Starks character balances out the movies fast paced scenes and brings a good amount of witty humour to the movie.
Marvel has successfully rebooted the popular Spidey franchise with a little help from Iron-Man, a well balanced script and a strong lead.
