Spider-Man: Homecoming – Web Slinging 3D Review
So recently you may have seen me post up about the Meerkats and their new TV Ad for Spider-Man: Homecoming, so I got excited about seeing the reboot of the Spider-Man franchise on the big screen and especially as the movie is in RealD 3D, so I popped on over to Cineworld in Broughton to check out the movie for myself.
First of all, I have to say that when the first of the Spider-Man trilogy of movies came out some years ago, I loved the first film and with it being directed by Sam Raimi it was a movie that I was hoping would refresh movie goers minds with the web slinger, which it did.
Then came the other movies when the character was rebooted yet again! Wasn’t keen on those to be honest, but when the news came that Spidey would be back in the MCU things were sounding great, then Tom Holland appeared in Captain America: Civil War and there was much rejoicing as he seemed to fit the part perfectly, which in turn has lead to yet another reboot, of sorts, of the Spider-Man franchise in the MCU.
Spider-Man and Iron Man
Spider-Man had me in the same frame of mind as Iron Man did when it was first released, a sense of excitement for a Marvel movie that was well overdue and it didn’t disappoint.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is the Spidey movie that we have been waiting for, it’s action, wit and storyline have brought the character back home to where he belongs.
Thankfully we don’t have to go through everything again, such as the spider not of the loss of Uncle Ben, the movie stands on its own without the need to repeat that has been done so many times before, giving us a fresh movie that ties in perfectly with the MCU and carries on from Captain America: Civil War.
Although we had a brief moment of time with Tom Holland as Spider-Man in Civil War, it really didn’t give us a feeling of how he would be in his own movie, suffice to say Tom Holland is brilliant as the teenager who is learning the ropes of becoming an Avenger and battling with not own villains bit also his Spidey skills and high-tech suit given to him by Tony Stark.
Right from the start of the film we are treated to many Easter eggs for the Spider-Man that many of us have grown up with, especially the cartoon TV, pay close attention to the Marvel Pictures logo at the beginning of the movie.
Marisa Romeo returns as May along with Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark in what can only be described as Peter’s father figure that helps him understand his potential of being a superhero, stepping back to let him learn from his own mistakes and only stepping in when things go badly wrong.
Michael Keaton is brilliant as the villain in the movie, with those moments when we see that crazy look in his eyes that some may remember from the time he played Bruce Wayne in Tim Burton’s Batman.
I wouldn’t say that Keaton stole the show in his scenes but he certainly had a presence that was not only big bit also very shifty, he’s certainly brought his character to life on the big screen and plays it extremely well.
Spider-Man is a movie on the MCU that you must see, it’s a teenager’s coming of age movie with that twist of superhero fun. Forget all those other Spider-Man movies, this is the one that should have come along in the first place, but then again without the others, mistakes wouldn’t have been made and this movie might not have been the one we have now.
Spider-Man: Homecoming in 3D
I have to say that the movie looks good in 3D, there are plenty of scenes that have a good use of depth to add to the feel of the film and thankfully it doesn’t spoil the movie, it’s all nicely done and done in a way that doesn’t scream 3D!
Look out for Stan Lee in yet another one of his Marvel cameos.
Don’t miss Spider-Man: Homecoming go check it out, this is a movie that has to be seen on the big screen for all the web slinging action.
