It received praise for the light tone, its focus on Parker's high school life, and the performances, particularly of Holland and Keaton. Two sequels have been released: Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) and Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021).


Jan (Age 12): ★★★★★

"I love this film!!! This movie is about Peter Parker becoming an Avenger, and it shows the 'friendly neighbourhood Spiderman' becoming more of a worldwide superhero. Tony Stark, Happy Hogan, Captain America (in his wierd educational videos), Aunt May, Ned, Flash, the villian who looked like a modern version of green goblin, and Peter, were all perfect!

The action scenes were brilliant and the storyline was flawless. To be honest, there isn't anything bad to say about this film. I really enjoyed watching all the different suits Peter used, and the one at the end which Tony Stark revealed looked awesome!!

Overall, a perfect film for someone like me, if you like any marvel films, then you'll love this one!! 'Thor: Ragnarok' is next."

Anna (Age 11): ★★★★★

"I loved Spider-Man: Homecoming, especially when he saves everyone from the falling lift."
