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.

 

Pros

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.

Cons

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…

DC Comics

Let me tell you one thing , this time DC comics tried to follow the simple formula of Marvel Films….less psychological drama and more of action . Oh yes , they have very successfully implemented that in the cinematic treatment of their latest instalment.

Suicide Squad tells the story of the dammed criminals , who are given a chance of redemption.  Amanda Waller is  the Nick Fury of Suicide Squad and she is one goddamm bitch.Well, a great diplomat…really good acting credibility.The story is about….oops no spoilers…but don’t worry ..nothing new , the same goody elements in the baddies suddenly rise up and these outlaws out of compulsion fight the evil.

Now let me take a look at the acting department , only four people acted and the rest were just present.

First of all the strong willed Deadshot played by our own Hancock..oh the great Will Smith.I will say he did his job perfectly.The coldblooded assassin and a loving father..well yeah Deadshot was bang on.

Secondly it is the Batman, the audience with Nolan’s hangover is finally able to relate with Dark knight.

Thirdly the crazy clown essayed by Jared Leto.Ah it is very difficult to replace the legendary Heath Ledger whose iconic portrayal of Joker surpassed all the expectation and became one of the  most supreme villains ever. Please forget Heath Ledger,while he was a creation of Nolan,this Joker remains faithful to the comic book.He is there in the script ,but somehow he is not connected to the main story .All in all Leto’s Joker is good but he need a full fleged screenplay to prove his insanity.

Look out for the Enchantress VFX . 😀

However he dazzled with his dialogues like

Jared-Leto-as-The-Joker-in-the-First-Trailer-for-Suicide-Squad-the-joker-38653138-1280-720

 

Joker: What do we have here?

Harley Quinn: What you gonna do? You gonna kill me, Mr. J?

 Joker: What? Oh, I’m not gonna kill you. I’m just gonna hurt you. Really, really bad.

 

I couldn’t relate to his metallic teeth and all the tattoo over his body.Well someone told me that Batman once smashed Joker’s teeth because he killed Robin .Ah is it ?

Regarding the damaged tattoo ? any one with any answer ?

Fourthly it is Harley Quinn, the surprise package of the film.She has got an amazing body ,specially the booty ( am I being sexist ? Hell no…the beauty of body must be celebrated ).

She speaks in such a way that you end  up saying “ Are you nuts ? “.

For example

 

Rick Flagg -This is the deal: You disobey me, you die. You try to escape, you die.You irritate or vex me and guess what? You die.

             Harley Quinn -I’m known for being quite vexing, I’m just forewarning you

 

Quinn is the ladylove of Joker and one of the highlight of the team.She looked every bit of retarded crime queen.The way she was blowing the bubble gum and smashing up  people….indeeed it was a treat to watch.Go for it.

Pros and Cons

Regarding the plot , it is very simple and nothing special..

The music is apt and specially the background music where Joker laughs like a full time psychopath.

The treatment have been inspired from Deadpool and the results are highly satisfactory.

The entertainment quotient is really great..omg I was bored to hell while watching

Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman.

I think the special effect is one of the highlight of this film and it is just great..

Full marks to the idea of being faithful to the comics and providing the authentic origin story of the villains.

Psychedellic Touch 😀

Don’t miss the special appearance of the superheroes .

Be seated for the post credit sequence.

Special Mention

1.Joker is Quinn’s Puddin 😛

2.Towards the end , all the characters hallucinate towards a safe future…highly amazing.

Here is the trailer.
