“Spider-Man: Homecoming” Movie Review

In the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” reboot, we catch up with Peter Parker (Tom Holland) as a 15 year old sophomore in a technical high school.

Peter has already been bitten by the spider, and is fast becoming a local hero, when he is recruited into the Stark Avenger Internship run by Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.).

Expecting to be an Avenger, Peter is given a new Spider-Suit and sent back home, and school, to wait for Stark’s call. A call that does not come.

While he is waiting, Peter continues his local crime fighting agenda when he uncovers something bigger, something more deadly, and something he figures he can solve by himself (with the help of classmate, and best friend, Ned (Jacob Batalon) to get the Avengers attention.

Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) has committed his team to clean up the mess left by the last Avenger movie. Unfortunately, a higher force takes over the cleanup and Toomes and his people are out of work and out of money. But, Toomes is tired of the little guy getting pushed aside and develops a plan to steal the alien wrecked materials he was cleaning up to make powerful weapons…then sell them.  He succeeds, even building himself a flying machine that makes him look like a Vulture when he is flying it.

Spider-Man has to stop Vulture, but, life is never as easy as a teen in high school thinks it is…….

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” is an excellent reboot of the Spiderman series.  Not as good, or as magical, as “Wonder Woman”, but, a nice solid re-introduction of a more innocent, wide eyed, enthusiastic, Spider-Man on his way to becoming an Avenger…..maybe…..after all, he does need to grow up first.

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched this at the Tracy, CA Cinemark theater.
