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.

Summary

Peter Parker balances life as an ordinary high-school student with his superhero alter-ego Spider-Man, while waiting in vain to join his mentor Iron Man on a world-saving mission. Determined to prove he is ready for bigger challenges, he investigates a spree of crimes committed with advanced weapons - leading him into a battle with a ruthless winged enemy on the hunt for priceless technology. Superhero adventure, starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton and Robert Downey Jr.
