Spider-Man: Homecoming [Blu-ray] (Bilingual)
From the manufacturer
Spider-Man: Homecoming [Blu-ray] (Bilingual)
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

If you are a beginner and to help you to start on the good foot, I decided to let you know the movie’s chronology, so you can keep track and follow the story smoothly, understand where they’re going with it and keep the same interest from the first to the very last one. At the moment of this review, the 3 first phases are completed and you can get these now. The phase 4 and 5 titles are to come, the 6th is still unknown. And here is the right sequence :
* Phase 1 (6 movies) : Iron Man // The Incredible Hulk // Iron Man 2 // Thor // Captain America (the first Avenger) // Avengers.
** Phase 2 (6 movies) : Iron Man 3 // Thor: The Dark World // Captain America: The Winter Soldier // Guardians of the Galaxy // Avengers: Age of Ultron // Ant-Man.
*** Phase 3 (11 movies) : Captain America: Civil War // Doctor Strange // Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 // Spider-Man: Homecoming // Thor: Ragnarok // Black Panther // Avengers: Infinity War // Ant-Man and the Wasp // Captain Marvel // Avengers: Endgame // Spider-Man: Far from Home.
**** Phase 4 (6 movies) : Black Widow, 2020 // The Eternals, 2020 // Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings 2021 // Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, 2021 // Spider-Man 3, 2021 // Thor: Love and Thunder, 202I.
***** Phase 5 (6 movies) : Black Panther II // Ant-Man 3 // Blade // Captain Marvel 2 // Fantastic 4 // Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
****** Phase 6 and over (number and titles of the movies not yet available at the moment of this review).
Tom Holland is great. I was never a big fan of Tobey McGuire. Never felt he had the charm that Spider Man had. And Andrew Garfield showed promise but let's face it, the last movie wasn't all that good. Can't put all the blame on him though. But I can say that Tom Holland captures the spirit of Peter Parker. I think this young man is going places.
And yes, Micheal Keaton as the Vulture. When I heard this I was a little surprised as I was imagining the Vulture from the comic books and that wouldn't work here. Luckily they went for a completely different look for the man and like usual he knocks it out of the park. He is without a doubt one of the best actors out there today and he's brilliant in this movie.
Without spoiling it, there's a scene later on where the Vulture, out of costume confronts Peter Parker, also out of costume. The tension and the menace simmering under the surface is amazing. It was genuinely suspenseful.
Top marks all around.
Yet, due to the lack of character development, Spider Man is not a compelling character, in this show; he does not, for instance, exhibit consistently-admirable qualities. So, for a long, long time, he does not properly evolve or learn important lessons.
Hence, he did not maintain my support. Eventually, he seemed reckless in how he treated his own education and other people - which were not admirable traits.
Thus, after a while, the story started getting, predictably, 'long-in-the-tooth' and boring. I found myself wishing that it would just 'wrap up', but it kept going on and on and on and on!
Thus, for me, eventually, this film seemed about half an hour too long!
Prior to that point, however, the movie was both tolerable and somewhat entertaining!

Thus familiarity with those will help. Especially with last year's Captain America: Civil War. As this shows what happens to Spider-Man after events in that.
Peter has to balance school life with superhero life. With pining after the seemingly unattainable girl. With dealing with bullies. And his gig with the Avengers not being quite all he hoped it would be. Meantime, construction crew boss Adrian Toomes has spied an opportunity, and is making money from it. In the role of the Vulture. He and Peter are about to meet, and their worlds will never be the same again...
Whilst I liked previous Spider-Man films for what they were, this does the character a power of good by putting him in an established and recognisable cinematic universe. And it's all the better for it. Yet it does keep all that on the sides with cameos and references, and keeps the focus firmly on Spider-Man himself. Which is the right way to go.
It also gives us what the previous films didn't. Peter's high school years. All superbly portrayed. Tom Holland is as brilliant in the role as he was in Civil War, and he is surrounded by an excellent supporting cast for these scenes, which do balance character drama with humour superbly.
Michael Keaton is also great as Toomes. And it's nice to get a villain who isn't someone who got powers in a lab accident and has gone on a crazed revenge quest, rather one with very believable motivations.
It's also nice not to have to go through Spider-Man's origin story once again.
The best Spider-Man film ever. Huge entertainment. Well worth a watch.
There's an extra scene in the middle of the end credits. And one at the very end as well. They are worth waiting for. Possibly.
The dvd has the following language and subtitle options:
Languages: English, French, German, Turkish.
Subtitles: English, Arabic, Dutch, French, German, Turkish.
It begins with an anti piracy ad, which can be skipped via the next button on the dvd remote.
It has the usual flyer with code to download copy of the film to a digital device.
Searching for Spider-Man: a seven minute overview of the film and it's production. As short as these usually are, but manages to get a lot in and is really a great watch.
Jon Watts: head of the class: four minutes about the director. Not as much detail as the above, but not bad and worth a watch.
Spider-Man: homecoming VR Trailer. A two minute long trailer for a virtual reality Spider-Man game. Some good Tom Holland scenes but not enough of the VR section.
A look at Marvel's Spider-Man playstation four: a two minute long feature and clips about another Spider-Man game. A short but interesting watch.
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..
But slight spoiler, it’s that darn suit.
Why the heck did they need to go so overboard on it. I understand some of it. The web shooter havinbloads of modes, fair enough. But spidey was always supposed to have his own super instincts and so on and now they almost tried to give credit to this suit! At one point it even tells him when to jump!!! That should have been cut out. So anyway. It does attempt to spoil the wonder that is spidey a little and given it’s a marvel incarnation I was a little surprised how far they went with it but at the same time, for the most part, they didn’t and it provided just enough entertainment.
And...for the most part I did enjoy the movie a lot so only 1 star off it goes.
Ragnarok wins the day overall but spidey for me wasn’t many movies behind.
