Movie Review-Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man Homecoming is the first full length movie featuring the new Spider-Man, Tom Holland. He was previously introduced in the movie Captain America: Civil War in 2016 and there is also a Spider-Man sequel planned for release in 2019. Along with future Avengers movies, this Spider-Man should be around for a long time; which is good because this is one cool Spidey.

Just as in the Marvel comic books, this Spider-Man is a high school student with a cast of nerdy friends to hang around with. He also has a crush on a young lady, who appears to be way out of his league. (I liked the fact too that no big issue was made of the obvious fact that she is African-American.) Laura Harrier is the beautiful statuesque actress (She's 5ft 9) who plays Liz, the classmate who is the object of Peter Parker's affection.

In Homecoming Tony Stark continues to mentor the future Avenger and makes several appearances in the movie; but for the most part, Spider-Man is on his own as he battles a new super villian, The Vulture (played by Michael Keaton). The Vulture and his crew are stealing military parts to make newly designed custom weapons, including Keaton's Vulture suit, and Spider-Man gets in way over his head trying to shut him down. There is also a jaw dropping suprise about The Vulture aka Adrian Toomes that would spoil the movie for you, but it's a doozy!

This Spider-Man has as much humor in it as it does action and there is also a little touch of romance. The $175 million budget film is the perfect way to spend a couple of hours on a hot summer day (run time is 2 hours and 13 minutes long). It's rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence (nothing here that will disturb the kids). Also, be sure and stay through the end of the credits for a final scene. On my "Hollywood Popcorn Scale" Spider-Man: Homecoming rates a JUMBO with extra butter (my highest possible rating).
