Directed by Jon Watts

The best description for this movie is fun. Tom Holland plays a much younger Spiderman than the previous two incarnations of the character. His portrayal is the most fun and the closest to the character of Spiderman than the previous two.
Here is the third reboot of this franchise and this will be one of the best comic reboots I have seen. Much of the drama of the first version and the thriller element of the second reboot were removed and in their place, was fun and adventure. Spiderman: Homecoming is a fitting welcome into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

There is no time you will not be rooting for Peter especially when he is taking on the villain and his goons. You will find yourself sucked in when he is using his web-skills, talking to himself and boyish ways of attending to things – will keep you grinning all the way through the movie as this is the Spiderman we know and love.

The plot starts with Peter Parker (Tom Holland) getting his welcome introduction to the happenings of Captain America: Civil War (2016). We see him capture the whole incidence on tape from when he was called to help, until when he took Captain America’s shield. Things became a bore for him as months after that incident, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) never called him in for another mission.

Peter decided to wait and the waiting led him to encounter a group of men who are using alien technology to design weapons and sell it on the black market.
These men were led by Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) who lost a contract to dispose of this alien tech to Tony Stark. Adrian decided to keep some of the tech for himself and explored using them to design weapons for sale and for his Vulture suit.

Peter informed Stark of this new development going on in his neighborhood and when he didn’t see any form of movement from Stark or the government he decided to handle it by himself.

The presence of Keaton as Vulture will have you at the edge of your sit. If you are familiar with the Spiderman animation where Vulture was introduced as a youth sucking villain, you will be surprised. The Vulture in the movie played close to the original Adrian Toomes, where the youth sucking was an aspect of the characters criminal biography and not a main theme.
Michael Keaton as usual out did himself, giving us a performance that will be for long remembered. He has proven overtime to be worth casting from his young days until now.

The movie feel and the overall outlook will have you plan a second viewing, as this is one great movie to see any time and with the family.
