Tom Holland plays Peter Parker in John Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming. After fighting with the Avengers and acquiring a new high-tech suit from Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Peter must return back to normal life. Living with his aunt May (Marisa Tomei), Peter must keep his identity a secret while trying to prove himself to be more than a friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man by facing his most threatening villain yet, the Vulture (Michael Keaton).

This movie was a satisfying watch. We get to see the almost father-son dynamic between Peter and Tony with Peter messing up and Tony having to save him. The responsibility of being Spider-Man is a big key factor that I think Watts did a great job displaying. I do wish we could have gotten more web-swinging scenes. They really are a staple of the Spider-Man name and they simply aren’t there in this movie. Peter’s intelligence also isn’t super prevalent in this film. In the past installments, especially in Andrew Garfield's adaptation, we got to see him make his own suit and web-shooters. Almost everything in this movie was given to him by Tony. I would recommend this film to anyone into coming-of-age stories. The run time is a calm 2 hours and 13 minutes and I would rate this movie a 3/5.
