SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMINGthumbnail_25242

“The best bits are the ones where the main characters are out of their costumes and being human instead of manically flying around the screen being an all-powerful superhero.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

“…SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is a harmlessly fun time that reminds us all that Spider-Man is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” – Nick Casaletto, We Live Entertainment

“Aunt May seems to have discovered the Fountain of Youth. Once played by Rosemary Harris, who was 75 at the time of SPIDER-MAN (2002), she was succeeded by Sally Field, who was 66 in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (2012). Here she’s become Marisa Tomei, age 53. At this rate Aunt May will soon be younger than her nephew.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Overall, SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is a balanced mix of welcomed ingenuity that works and familiar mechanisms that seem unavoidable at this point when it comes to these damned universe-building studio blockbusters.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“Because of the way it’s all set up and how well they use the characters to build the world that is shown to us, SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING provides more depth and quality than the vast majority of movies regardless of genre that are being released at the moment.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“In a world of heroes, where myths sling magic hammers and summon lighting, playboy millionaires build an army of robots that threaten to take down the world, super soldiers gets frozen in ice and a green and growling “exposed nerve” can crush those demigods with a well-thrown punch, Spider-Man remains remarkably human.” – Allyson Johnson, Cambridge Day

“SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING is far more than an obligatory restart, and if you are a newcomer to the series, it is a perfect place to start.” – Kristofer Jenson, C-Ville Weekly

“Because this is an MCU movie, HOMECOMING is full of plants and setups for upcoming installments, including a post-credits scene that Captain America himself makes fun of you for staying to watch.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality
