Spider-Man: Homecoming is probably the worst Spider-Man movie yet. I would have to go back and watch the terrible Amazing Spider-Man reboots and compare to really give a definitive answer.
There is so much wrong with this movie that I don’t even know where to begin. Sitting in the theater I kept thinking and sighing to myself going “Man this movie is horrible”. I kept waiting for it to pick up but it never did.
One of the main problems (like I see some have posted on here) is Iron Man. There is absolutely no reason for him to be in this movie to me. I hate that he gave Spider-Man his suit, which is basically a spandex Iron Man suit.

Spider-Man or Spider-Boy can’t save a ferry boat full of people, Iron Man has to show up and save everyone. We have to watch Spider-Boy whine and complain to his fat annoying friend about Iron Man throughout almost the entire movie. Iron Man is here to substitute Uncle Ben basically and help Spider-Man get back to making money at the box office again.
The characters in the movie are annoying as HELL. Peter’s fat annoying friend who is constantly asking him stupid questions. Flash Thompson, who I hope they aren’t planing on turning into Venom because the actor they have here is worse than the one from Spider- Man 3.
Flash Thompson is weirdly obsessed with Peter, there is a scene where he runs past Peter and slaps him on the ass…you do the math. Mary Jane or MJ or Michelle (I guess she is the new Mary Jane) is a weird, hipster like chick who hates everything and is also weirdly obsessed with Peter. Michael Keaton is cool as the Vulture but they give him little to do really up until the end. Even Spider- Man himself was annoying.
This is a typical MCU movie so you pretty much know what you are going to get. All these different superheros, with different stories and backgrounds to tell and Marvel continues to keep this same, tired and overdone formula they have been using forever.
Full of cheesy and unfunny FORCED jokes that are extremely overdone. Somehow critics love this and rate these movies high as if they haven’t seen it just a few months ago in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. No memorable action sequences like from Spider-Man 1,2, or even 3. A villain or villains that aren’t worth a damn (typical MCU) and a basic story that never really goes anywhere.
A twist that even Stevie Wonder could have seen coming. A very weak Spider-Man movie that doesn’t get me excited to see the next chapter or even the Spider-Man character anymore because they just can’t seem to get him right anymore.
