The first reviews are in for Spider-Man: Homecoming are they’re great. Many critics are calling it the best Spidey film yet.
Tom Holland’s first solo outing as the web-slinging superhero has gone down extremely well. Positive reviews have given the reboot an impressive 96% score on Rotten Tomatoes. See some of the critics’ ratings below:
- Rolling Stone – 3/4
- Coming Soon – 9.5/10
- CinemaBlend – 4.5/5
- Guardian – 4/5
- Den of Geek – 4/5
- IGN – 8.7/10
The Wrap – “Marvel’s made a literal Homecoming in that one of their prized characters is no longer in a single-parent (Sony) household. The result is a Spider-Man that feels a little more punchy, laugh-filled, and exciting than one might expect from a property that’s already been given plenty of chances to succeed.”
Although the majority of reviews have been positive, not everyone was a fan:
Variety – “We all know the spider-bite basics of Spidey’s origin story, but too much rebooting has now resulted in a certain vagueness, as if the film couldn’t be bothered to fill in the logistics.”
The Hollywood Reporter – “A charming new lead only goes so far in a reboot that smells of corporate strategy. Hang in there, True Believers: Maybe it’ll get better the second time around.”
But overall it’s a strong start for Marvel’s latest. Homecoming arrives on July 7th.
