Tom Holland is an excellent Spiderman - my fave since Toby Mcquire - but where Mcguire captures the vainer self indulgent, more artistic and romantic side of the character, I think Tom is a nice foil as he is the lighter, comic, teenager version that is that little bit more open to what the world has in store for him.
We also new tom was fab from Civil War - such a brilliant intro.
If not seen - do not read on from here.........
Now here's the but you knew from my opening sentence was going to happen - 'but' the film is not quite a five star experience because of what I have already mentioned. Spiderman, like superman has got alot holding it back as a franchise, and you feel this burden if you are any kind of super hero fan. What is great here is that the directors and producers have done their best to lighten the load and given a snapshot of the character here without feeling they have to start from scratch - like the Matrix, the story works because you are stepping into a world as apposed to having to go though what we already now know about the character. I like the wit of the script and irony of vulture being acted out by oscar winner Birdman himself....really well i might add - and the ending was also really sweet - loved how the vulture stays human really - instead of trying to be more super villain he actually helps protect Peters identity - he 's a villain who's just a bloke - be he has a moral spectrum in the end....a really nice twist.
Effects are very good - and theres a lovely pace to this entertaining film. Much better than the last two spiderman films, and nicely attuned to the marvel universe. Id still say that Guardians and Dr Strange are my faves from Marvel so far - closely followed by Civil War, Ant Man and Captain america, but this is a quality film too..
Okay, so we all know that the film itself is brilliant. Possible the best, on-screen depiction of Spiderman ever.
Okay so I ordered the 3D Blu-ray, as I have all the other MARVEL films on 3D. each of which come with a stunning slipcase. I expected this Blu-ray to be the same. I was wrong. Firstly, I was sent a German version, with all the text on the box written in German, secondly... No Slipcase. Thirdly, the actual Blu-ray box is a very thin and cheap looking. The box is slimmer that a normal Blu-ray box, and it doesn't even have the blue band on the top of the box like other Blu-rays. This is especially annoying as it'll look completely out of place on my shelf with the other marvel films. First world problems I guess, but still annoying.
Mr. Alexander Korbey：
Tom Holland is the perfect Spiderman and the film does a good job of reintroducing the new MCU spiderman and the supporting cast but so far some aspects feel undercooked. Having said that to really flesh them out it might have required a typical origin story (yawn) so maybe they'll fix that in the sequel. The cast all do a solid job and the film manages to be entertaining and exciting throughout. Michael Keaton is excellent as the vulture and the updated version of rhe character is very fitting with the MCU.
