To hell with the whining about what this is about restarting about Spider-Man, after all the friendly neighbor in red-and-blue tights finally became a part of the Marvel coterie, and these guys know a lot about their business, and, most importantly, learn from mistakes . You can compare three different Spiders and their performers endlessly, but this is almost the same as the argument that Parker distorts on MJ in comics, and what - in the film. Strictly speaking, not everything is put according to a certain pattern, hence the different screen versions, different characters and stories. However, if you could find fault with Maguire for snotty, and Garfield for self-centeredness, Holland is still more difficult to make claims, as Marvelers see a fresh approach to working with the character taking into account past flaws and, importantly, without selfrepetition. We will not be shown either the bite of the radioactive spider or the death of Uncle Ben, nor will they remind us that "great power comes with great responsibility," even though Tony Stark, Peter's current mentor, seems to have been trying. Spiderman again appears as a schoolboy, except that this time school life really boils.
A flying dude does not surprise anyone in tights, especially in New York, where the residents saw the alien invasion and the battle of the Avengers. You will think, the guy weaves a web, - there, the muzhik turns to the green bully, and the Scandinavian god thunderes all with a magic hammer. Therefore, understanding the whole situation, the creators use, perhaps, the most successful method - irony. And it manifests itself in all its glory: the film ironically over superpowers and clichés, and in the end and at all successfully jokes over spectators who stubbornly sit down to the end of the credits. As for the superhero life, it does not really fit in with the school, and Parker learns to combine saving the city and passing the test in Spanish, and also spending time with Aunt Mei. By the way, we have the most sexy Aunt May, about which the creators will not miss the opportunity to joke. A spider, as it turns out, is not always super-krut: he also has to run around without cobwebs, and crash into different objects, and, after all, he can make mistakes, like any teenager who is also motivated by the desire to prove himself. Peter does not have much time to show the old woman the path, he wants something more. And without waiting for a call from Stark or Happy, he enters into a confrontation with the Vulture, who, along with his team, collects weapons from extraterrestrial wrecks after that very battle of the Avengers.
Among other advantages, John Watts' film stands out for its earthiness and realism, despite the fact that the action takes place within the Marvel cable car. Realistic, of course, relative, but the picture does not have that patheticity that was in the possession of Raimi or Webb, "Homecoming" is even more prosaic than the previous Marvel tapes, and it's ironic. Which is no less important, so it's a slightly more interesting antagonist than the typical Marvelovsky, which, thanks to the charisma of Michael Keaton, does not fade in the background of the main character. Moreover, the Vulture appears not as a classic villain, trying to destroy everything and everything, but an ordinary person who wants, like Parker, to prove himself somehow, although for this he chooses a wrong way. Watt's tape - in fact, it's a story about growing up, about mistakes of youth and the right decisions made due to some life experience. That's why watching Parker's school life is no less interesting than watching his superhero adventures. Funny episodes sometimes turn into dramatic, but the film follows the balance and does not slide into pathos, even wherever it could. The picture has a contagious energy, to match his hero. And it's definitely the same "Spider-Man" that will please the boy inside of you, even if he grew up on Raimi movies.
