Spider-Man Homecoming (Review)

I watched this movie yesterday, after I come home from a picnic in Kebun Raya Bogor. Honestly, I don't expect much from another Spider-Man Movie. I've watched 5 Spider-Man movies so I'm pretty sick of it, but I love Tom Holland portrayal as teenage Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War so I give this movie a chance. Here is my review about this movie!


This movie open up with the after effect of The Avengers' Battle of New York and reveal how Vulture, the main villain of this movie, engage in criminal activities. Then it shift to the story after Civil War, about the daily life of 15 years old Peter Parker. He wants to be a full-fledge Avenger & he's been waiting the call from Happy about his next mission, but he was told to be the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man instead. This movie is more about Peter Parker struggles on how to prove himself and become more mature rather than a superhero movies.

Here's what I like about this movie:

  • Tom Holland. I seriously must say sorry to underestimate his acting capabilities. I mean, I just saw him as the cheeky, comedic, kid version of Spider-Man in Civil War. I don't expect him to be so good at acting! There's this one plot twist, a big reveal towards the end of the movie and his acting in those scenes are so impressive, you can feel his struggle and deep emotion. I think those scenes are the highlight of the movie. In short, Tom Holland give a stellar performance as teenage Spider-Man!
  • All of the cast's performance are good. The villain is good & not one dimensional, Peter Parker's circle of friends and surrounding are good too.
Here's what I don't really like about this movie:
  • I think they can do better with the execution of some scenes, like the big revealing towards the end. It makes me kind of only remember some of important scenes in this movie and forgot the rest. 
  • I love the reference of Spider-Man old song at the beginning of the movie but honestly the rest of the soundtrack felt flat.
Anyway, I think it's a fresh movie in Marvel Cinematic Universe. I get the same feeling I felt when I watched Ant Man. It's not a typical MCU movie and I recommend you to watch it.
