This is a fun film!!! The action was great and engaging. What I love about this film was the visuals as they are stunning and quite badass. If you’re a fan of CGI then this film is a must watch. There has been many comic book films I’ve seen that I’m consciously aware are comic book adaptations, but this film pops out to me the most. Good acting all around as Tom Holland is the perfect Spiderman. Supporting cast is great too; I personally enjoyed the weirdness of MJ and the comedic relief of Ned. Jake Gyllenhaal was amazing in his role. During the beginning of this movie I was wondering why cast Jake Gyllenhaal in this role until I saw the second half of the film then it made more sense. I enjoyed the MJ and Peter Parker relationship as they are cute and awkward around each other. Nick Fury seeking the aid of Peter Parker was entertaining as we saw both of them interact for the first time. I was a fan of the plot as I never would have guessed this was the route they were going (no I have not read the comics). Seeing Peter Parker cope with the loss of Tony Stark was touching. I did have one issue with this film and it was the overwhelming theme of Tony Stark/Iron man. Iron man drawings everywhere, and murals of Iron man everywhere too. I guess I was expecting some Iron Man/Tony Stark reference in this film but for my taste it was too much. Overall I had tons of fun with this film. The hype about the post credits are all true! Don’t leave until the very end. I definitely recommend seeing this film. Initially I thought I preferred Homecoming, but now that I’ve had time to think I’m leaning towards this film being superior.
I give this film an 8.5 out of 10
