Review

Our Score
Another film and another (relatively) new Spider-Man, this fresh twist on the franchise is as much about awkward high school student Peter Parker (Tom Holland) as it is an elaborately-costumed vigilante vanquishing evildoers. Parker wants to be welcomed fully into the Avengers fold, having cut his teeth in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, but Iron Man Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) doesn't think the young upstart is ready, so when a villainous crew led by Michael Keaton terrorises his neighbourhood, the teenaged crime-fighter must go it alone to take them down. Holland brings hitherto unseen richer textures to the dual role, yearning for the best of both worlds; headline-grabbing hero and cool student who can persuade the best-looking girl in school to accompany him to the prom. Heroic, certainly, although Holland's superb performance makes the movie a celebration of underdogs, occasional pratfalls reminding us that Parker is still just a boy. An affectionate top-billing introduction to the new kid in town.
