Not what I expected. I didn’t expect it to start as it did.
I enjoyed watching Peter Parker as a student, going on trips and juggling his crazy life. Now that is one thing I would like to see more of. His relationship with Mary Jane is simply different from the other versions/remakes. I love watching Peter’s stress building up from multitasking two things at once. Yes, I know I’m cruel but I live for that. Seeing the characters struggling is far more interesting and entertaining. We can get another sense of his student life as well as being Spider-Man. I need more of that. I also love that the movie portrays the awkwardness in teenagers which is rarely shown in shows.
I am glad that there are bits here and there of students noticing that their classmate is missing. And thank God that they didn’t act as though Peter Parker doesn’t exist as in most superhero movies tend to do. I love it that we as the viewers don’t have to go through another cycle of someone guessing who’s under the mask. To avoid spoilers, I can’t say more about this. It’s a superhero cliche. It’s tiring and that needs to change but thank goodness it did in this movie. Nobody is that dumb after all. Well, that concludes my review.
I rate this 9/10.
I am looking forward to the third movie. THAT ENDING had me stoked, and I cannot wait for the next one!!!
