Let’s take a look at what the critics are saying about the new Spider-Man: Homecoming flick starring Tom Holland as you friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man.
We skimmed through the Internet to find out what everyones thoughts were.
Rotten Tomates gave the movie a very respectable 94% rating:
For the most part, critics have liked the character’s previous solo outings, but Homecoming comes close to setting a new bar for the franchise; enlivened by Holland’s appropriately youthful exuberance and balanced between costumed antics and John Hughes-style teen angst, Homecoming takes Spider-Man back to its fundamentals — emphasis on the “fun.”
Vox gave Homecoming 4.5/5 of their v’s. They also gave some good praise to Tom Holland:
Holland can be effortlessly likable; he proved as much in Civil War. What’s more impressive in Homecoming is how adept he is at doing the tougher stuff too. He flashes teenage stubbornness in defying Iron Man (and everyone who seems to know better). But he also sheds tears, and your heart hurts with him, giving Peter Parker an aching vulnerability that we don’t see in most superheroes.

Firstpost gave the new Spidey flick 4/5 stars. They gave director Jon Watts a good review:
With superhero films getting bigger and more explosion-ey, director Watts does well to bring down the overall scale of the film, so when the big stuff happens it feels interesting, instead of the numbed down feeling you get seeing the crumbling buildings in most of these films.

IGN came through with a 8.7/10 rating. Their verdict:
As with the very best of the web-slinger’s Marvel stories, Spider-Man: Homecoming is a winning combination of a fun superhero adventure tale with a heartwarming story about a regular kid dealing with some very relatable issues (well, relatable in the non-superhero sense anyway). Tom Holland’s Spidey can’t swing back onto screens again fast enough.
There you have it. Let us know your thoughts on the movie.
