The big question for this newest reboot of the franchise is: how is it different from all the others? Primarily, it’s Tom Holland, who brings a fresh-faced charm to the character. He’s still in high school, while working to get accepted as a superhero by the Avengers. Since he’s also adolescent, he’s awkward and impetuous, which gets him in several scrapes. The action sequences seem more lighthearted and the villain (Michael Keaton) is less threatening. Still, Holland’s awkward spunk and endearing appeal, combined with a lighthearted script and energetic approach make this iteration enjoyable. BTW, the plot picks up after the last Captain America movie (which featured a fun cameo from Spidey), so if you didn’t see it, some of the references may be lost, but the movie still works. NOTE: As usual with Marvel flix, stay thru the credits for one last gag.
