    8.5/10- Great action in this movie, liked all the characters and it did a good job explaining the effects and even making fun of what thanos did. Like most marvel movies make sure to stay as there is a mid and end credit scene. Can’t say much more without spoiling the film as there are a lot of spoilers.Would recommend movie, probably one of my top 5 favorite marvel films as I always liked Mysterio and liked seeing him in this movie.

    I found the standalones (with ______ as Special Guest Star) often better than the ensemble stuff. Well, better than the first two Avengers movies.

    Solid 8/10 but I wish they would back off on the comedy a bit. Jake Gyllenhaal was excellent and it's funny watching this scene description after actually seeing the movie. He does an excellent acting job in it as well.

    Saw it last night. I thought it was a good movie and thoroughly enjoyed it but I felt the movie was a little bit choppy.

    Good movie, better than Captain Marvel. Not a massive spoiler to say:

    It's more an epilogue to the Iron Man movies than it is to Phase 3 of the MCU

    I liked it, light-hearted enough for the teenage crowd and does address the 'blip' of people coming back five years later.

    BTW, Jake G is an amazing actor, top tier. Not because of this movie, which he did great in, but because of his body of work. Totally underrated.

    Absolutely loved it. One of the top 5 MCU films and best spider man film IMO. I think they nailed Spider man and Mysterio. Those with post-End Game fatigue (apparently this is a thing)—this is just the kind of film you need.

    Man what I would give for Sony to let MCU do venom and Carnage the way they were meant to be done

    I completely disagree with others... it is average in my opinion. Too much chasing of MJ and not enough action. I do agree that the actors did their thing but its the story that was lacking for me. Others have said its one of the best Marvel movies and I have to say it is one of the worst. Maybe I missed something...

    The wife and 9yr old Spiderman Fanboy think the same.

    Pacing was a huge upgrade over homecoming. Action scenes were unreal. 3rd act was fantastic. Jake G is a G. I thought this was the 2nd best Spider-Man movie behind Spider-Man 2 with the Tobey.

    Surprised by all the 8's. The movie is a lot better than it has any right to be especially after End game. Disney could have really mailed it in and I don't think anyone would have cared. It's a really good Spiderman movie; the trailers don't do it justice.

    Went to see this movie yesterday, and was pretty hyped/looking forward to it. Gotta say, I was a bit underwhelmed, and definitely enjoyed Homecoming more.

    Although the action scenes were pretty cool, I think at this point I've seen so many scenes that it's hard to really be impressed by anything. I don't have a particularly discerning eye, so I find most CGI nowadays to be good enough.

    My biggest gripe is probably about the drones. For some reason I had a hard time believing that drones were able to cause the level of distruction/effects that they did in the movie. Felt like a bit of a copout to be honest.

    Also, I know spider-man is a bit naive and all, but really? You're going to give the glasses to a dude you just met?

    I actually liked most of the character building portions, including Peter's crushed reaction at MJ only being interested 'cuz she thought he was spider-man, to her uncharacteristic nervous ticks when admitting to him that she did actually like him.

    One thing that I do like and feels more unique to this spider-man is the way he web slings. Seems to be a lot more back/forth/diagonal/backwards/etc. angles than in previous incarnations.

    If you haven't seen it already and are a spider-man fan, definitely go watch Spider-man: Into the spiderverse. It won best animated picture, and is one of the best movies overall with stellar reviews.

    For being the first movie after Endgame, it did a really good job of setting the stage. The fact that the Blip / Snap was summarized by the two student newscasters all within the first 5 minutes or so, of the movie, was really well done by the writers.

    Coolest parts of the movie for me:

    When Peter embodied Tony while on the Jet, as he was customizing his suit and when Peter had the makeshift Cap shield and Mjolnir

    Going to disagree with this.

    I think there was more MJ "chasing" because Homecoming didn't really focus on their relationship. And because the relationship between Spidey and MJ is so ingrained within Spidey's lore, I thought they did it justice. My one gripe with this would be Peter buying a necklace for MJ though - I thought it was really soon to be giving such an extravagant gift for a person who isn't even your girlfriend.

    I thought there was plenty of action.

    Going to disagree with some of your spoiler'd points, as well.

    I think Peter gave Beck the glasses because Peter was still reeling from the loss of Tony, and he desperately needed a person to fill that void. Add to that the fact that Beck was extremely nice and convincing. And Mysterio DID just seemingly save the world from all 4 elementals. It's like taking candy from a baby.

    As for the drones, keep in mind that they're Stark Industries drones. I think the writers for the movie can pretty much make them do almost anything, to fit the plot / narrative.

    I thought it was great because that is what awkward nerdy teenagers do when they have no clue. They overthink it and do over the top things.

    RE:
    Drones. You're forgetting that the last iron man suit was nanobots. Entirely feasible that Stark Tech bots could emulate all of that destruction

    Thought it was flawed. Good movie, not great. I didn't really go to see Oblivion, so for me, the drones weren't an interesting story. I thought Mysterio was cool and some nice reveals. The MJ chasing was ok with me because she is a strong character, but that's why it left me disappointed, I needed MJ to be more. She herself is mysterious, and yet there was no mystery. The payoff scene was clumsy and awkward. AS for the final easter egg, I was totally thinking they should have been in the movie due to the nature of it, but I didn't see that coming.

    I mean Tony Stark did invent time travel in a movie so I am sure stark tech can do anything.

    This was my favorite Spider-Man movie of all time, and that's saying something because I'm a Spidey nerd. I loved it.

    Spider-verse is my favorite. I liked homecoming better than this one but I liked this a lot. I just thought some of the jokes weren't nearly as funny and it was uneven. The story was by far the best of all the live action movies though.
