Spider-Man: Homecoming ★★★★

Spider-Man: Wait a minute... You guys aren't the real Avengers! I can tell. Hulk gives it away.

MCU Ranked

Jon Watts's Spider-Man: Homecoming was an immensely, fun-filled ride. However, for me, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 are still the best Spider-Man films to date.

This film had a great story and screenplay. The action was gripping and the villains were awesome. The only real annoying things that spoiled the "essence" of Spider-Man and this film was that Director Jon Watts made Spider-Man too much into a lesser Iron Man clone with the talking tech suit and Spider-Man's witty remarks when fighting the villain was noticeably absent here. This was not the same Spider-Man I came to love in the comics. These things are what made Spider-Man great and fun when reading the comics.

Tom Holland did a phenomenal job as Spider-Man/Peter Parker. Tom captured the spirit and mannerisms of the character perfectly. I have absolutely no complaints with Tom's performance. Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role of Iron Man/Tony Stark and acting as his mentor was just superb and fun to watch.

Spider-Man: You missed! You didn't even hit me!
Adrian Toomes: Yeah, but then again... I wasn't even trying to.

Casting acting legend Michael Keaton as The Vulture/Adrian Toomes was stroke of genius on Jon's part. Michael portrayed the character to perfection. The Vulture has always been one of my favorite Spider-Man villains. Vulture's final battle with Spider-Man was absolutely awesome and so much fun to watch.

Zendaya (Michelle), Laura Harrier (Liz), Marisa Tomei (May Parker), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), Jacob Batalon (Ned) and Bokeem Woodbine (Shocker/Herman Schultz) all did amazing jobs in their respective roles, despite their limited screen time.

Adrian Toomes: You need to understand, I will do anything to protect my family. I know you know what I'm talking about. So don't mess with me. Don't interfere in my business again. Because I will kill you and anyone you care about.

Overall, Jon Watts's Spider-Man: Homecoming provided me with some awesome entertainment and the final confrontation between Spider-Man and the Vulture was one of the best in the MCU by far. A truly noteworthy entry into the MCU.
