There’s A LOT going on here. On one hand, it feels like too much, but on the other, wow, everything shown here is so great. There’s a good handle of the tone, some action beats, the stakes, and of course the unique teen perspective that every other Spidey film has lacked. Like any other Marvel film, this one feels like a solid character piece, one that studies the implications of Peter’s youth and responsibility in a world where superheroism has become the norm.
July 7th – please hurry.
