Spider-Man: Homecoming - Web slinger hits full swing

 

By Damon Smith

Jon Watts’ slick reboot of the Marvel Comics superhero — the third iteration in 15 years — spins an impressive web of rites-of-passage drama, buddy comedy and bombastic spectacle.

Several months have passed since the destruction of the Avengers headquarters and Peter Parker (Tom Holland) has so far managed to conceal his crime-fighting alter-ego from Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) with the help of his mentor, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr).

But when salvage company owner Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) takes flight as a larcenous winged menace called Vulture, Peter foolishly tries to prove himself to the Avengers by tackling the airborne madman alone.
