Director: Jon Watts

It's quite an established pattern now wherein, everything the Marvel team decides to change it's Spider-Man, he simply gets younger and younger.
And this time, Tom Holland takes the mantle as a 14 year old Spider-Man, who of course deals with his own adolescent problems, girl problems, and of course an evil villain problem.
(Spoiler Alert - The actor is 21 years old).
 
From the first few minutes, it is an obvious derivation that the movie doesn't believing in delving for hours together in the 'origin story'. It simply jumps that ship and starts off with Tony Stark mentoring the boy; paving a very clear way for the inclusion of Spider-Man in Avengers.
As a character, older viewers may end up rolling their eyes from time to time, watching the naivety of our young superhero but, it surely helps in winning over newer, younger fans.
 
What also strikes out in the movie is the lack of humour. For someone who knows Spider-Man can easily draw a signature trait - Slapstick one liners, even in the most serious moments; which sadly is majorly amiss.
But, the lack of appropriate amount of humour is made up with the action sequences. From fighting the vulture, or his minions or even just an odd bad guy here and there; they have indeed taken it up a notch, as compared to the previous movies.
And talking about the 'vulture'; Michael Keaton's charismatic presence and the tone with which he plays the evil character, surely helps the movie along.
 
And the end, if you are wondering - whether you should go for it?
Well, honestly it is a no brainer! After all, Spidey is back on the big screen, while he may be young, he surely is better; packing enough power for which I give SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING 4 Shors on 5!
Cheers.
