Spider-Man: Homecoming , The Movie Review


Direction by Jon Watts

Story by Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley (Based on Stan Lee’s Comics)

Who all are there? Ans :- Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr.

Let me get this straight, I have never read any comics of Marvel, except Spiderman. Well there were few episodes of Captain America in my stash, that’s it. It was DC’s heroes all the way. Spider-Man Homecoming has broken the internet with its funky trailer and the most importantly introducing Iron-Man into the film story line. I was bustling with teen like excitements because I was going to watch one of my favourite super heroes Master Spidey on big screen (didn’t watch the previous Spidey series on big screen). At least there was and there is a super-hero with real life problems.


I was truly afraid that Tony Stark’s towering personality might over shadow the baby boy. Well, Spider-Man is there and the movie belongs to him all the way. Tom Holland is confused , bumbling with high level of testosterone and most importantly he is a hero in his own accord. At last there is a Spider- Man with the closest resemblance to the comic book. Cinema and comics are altogether different medium and cinematic liberty is cool but being faithful to the original comics, actually touches your soul.  Marvel Cinematic Universe – take a bow for providing such a decent script and presenting the Spidey of the decade. One of the best features of MCU , is the existence of different comic book characters and linking the story-line to something very big, oh yes I am talking about Avenger’s Infinity War.

Tom Holland is perfect.  Spidey’s tech support, the cutipie Asian Guy (Americans have this issue of calling Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indians as Asians) provides some comic relief as usual (that is the job of Tech Support , apart from tech support). Robert Downey Jr is a God(Not a typo. It is God) as usual . Spidey’s aunt …mmmm is HOT. The former Batman and Birdman, Michael Keaton is menacing on screen . Keaton looked more convincing as a baddie without the entire freakish Vulture suit.

Cinematography could have been much better. Spidey’s original theme song was refreshing and nostalgic to the core. Action sequences were good but could have been more stylish. But the technical brilliance showcased is really cool. Iron-Man has done some terrific up gradation with the Spidey suit. This movie scores full marks on the acting department and the engaging screenplay across the run time. Some scenes were brilliant, some were let down. Tom Holland is a future superstar. He is so real with his problems and torment. He does not want to be low key local hero but want to make it big among the Avengers. This Spider-Man never cries or breaks down. He is a teen who can control his emotions and hold his tears. He knows what he is doing. He can take his own decisions and at the same time he is a jackass.


If you think it is Iron-Man who can show off his attitude in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ,well here is teen hero who can match him. He carries his pride and he knows his place. He proves it that it is the valour which makes a hero , not the suit.



Tom Holland’s performance…

Acting is really cool…

Screenplay is also very cool

Technical Brilliance regarding Spidey’s suit is mesmerizing

Background Score…..

One liners by Iron-Man like

“Can’t you just be a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man?”

That’s not a hug. I’m just grabbing the door for you.


No origin story (though it was  shown in other films but still…………)

Cinematography was low key.

Dragged a lot…

Post-credit scene was a big let-down.

Ratings- 7/10

Verdict- Watch it…

Captain America: Civil War : A Movie Review

Director Duo-Anthony Russo,Joe Russo

Screenplay-Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely

Cast– Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr,Chris Evans

Civil War is definitely one of the best multistarrer superhero movie .While the first installement of Avenger was a great one ,the second one i.e Age of Ultron…was a dud.I was really afraid to watch Civil War after the Dawn of Justice show.

First of all the Casting

No one can beat the casting director of the Marvel Movie Universe, while characters like Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow have been accepted long back. Vision has been perfect, but I preferred more intellectual stuff from him.

The surprise element of the movie is Spiderman,if you follow the comics then Spidey is exactly the confused teenager portrayed over here.Ant man as usual surprised the audience,people were cheering with his action antics. Black Panther aggressive attitude in black suit and calm and composite nature as the Prince is so endearing.


I think the Hollywood scripting world is running out of ideas, every  goddamm superhero movies and T.V shows are coming up with singular agenda-The world is going to end,and these superheroes are going to save the world.I know,that is the politics of  States, concerned with th welfare of the globe.Please come out of the zone, please come up with something new.The hamartia is nothing new over here.

The dialogue by Zemo sums up all the movie and the vanity of Civil War.

Zemo: An empire toppled by its enemies can rise again, but one which crumbles from within? That’s dead… forever.


The execution has been very smooth,the editing and CGI does not leave any room for  improvement.I was wondering whether this was a Captain America sequel or an Avenger prequel. The best thing about the  movie is that,most of the characters received considerable amount of screen pace.


The Spiderman, the Black Panther and Zemo(he was there in first part of Captain America)are relatively new kids on the block. Their work deserves an applause. But it is the highly puzzled antics of Spidey which steal the show. Don’t deny the chopy one liner by Iron Man and Captain America.Check out the comic timing between Iron Man, War Machine and dear Spidey.

Spider-Man: Hey guys, you ever see that really old movie, Empire Strikes Back?

War Machine: Jesus Tony, how old is this guy?

Iron Man: I don’t know, I didn’t carbon date him. He’s on the young side.

Action Sequence

Well…the action sequence was pure evil.I have got one word for it,kickass.All the mightiest superheroes kicking each other’s butt.The wise moves of Cap,the smoky blow of Ironman and the ever perplexed web of the Spidey were pure joy.The little comic book guy inside me was bumbling with Flinstone like expression : “Yaba Yaba Do”.

Don’t miss out the BIG DIVERSION created by Ant Man.

The duel between Rogers and Stark was heartwrenching,I mean great moves,punching each other…but it was like they were hitting themselves.

And the red head Black Widow,I think you can give any action hero a run for their money.You are beautiful,you are sultry,you are a mystifying creature.You deserve a solo movie of your own Natasha.

Well,this was was a good movie,go for the 3D one.Deadpool was Legendary,Civil War is great.

Go for it.

P.S : Don’t miss the post credit scene. 😛
