Spidy Finally Home? I should get the fact that I actually liked Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man out of the way. His chance as Spider-Man was hindered by some bad screenwriters, but he was good. I can admit, though, that he would not have worked in this movie. Spider-Man: Homecoming is a rebirth for Spider-Man the way the last reboot was supposed to be. This interpretation of Spider-Man was the most authentic and honest version of the character I have seen in a movie.
I do not fully credit Marvel for this movie, though it is obvious that with their involvement it was a better product than the Amazing Spider-Man try. What really pulled me into the movie was Tom Holland as Spider-Man and Michael Keaton. I know that Michael Keaton doesn't really want to make blockbuster movies, but he is just so good. I am not the first person to say that Marvel has a problem with their villains, but Keaton breaks that trend. He really brings the cold and stone hard to the budding Tom Holland as Spider-Man.
The story was actually pretty good in the movie as well. It told a really honest story of Spider-Man, more in line with its source material. This was definitely the right direction because it definitely gives Spider-Man as a character more likable. The movie wasn't the most amazing movie I have ever seen or anything but it was super watchable. Everything made sense and it just flowed really great. Did I mention it was really funny, cause it is. This movie had a lot of laughs, but not necessarily from Spider-Man himself. That is one of the things that Andrew Garfield was definitely better at (I don't apologize for bringing Andrew Garfield back up, and Spider-Man cracking jokes is more in line with the source material).
Overall, this is definitely the summer blockbuster that has been missing. Since the summer movie season started with Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, including that movie, there has been a lack of exciting big movies. I can say that if there was one big blockbuster to watch in the summer, this would be that movie.
8/10 The homecoming part almost feels more symbolic than part of the movie
