Conclusions

Really, properly loved this film. After the ringer Spider-Man has been put through (as a concept, not the character himself), I wasn’t expecting much from this one, but it worked on every level.

I tweeted immediately afterwards, which sums up my feelings:

Tom Holland was great, loved his interactions with Happy and with Stark, loved the bonus characters and references popping up here and there. It was all wonderful.

Rating: 5/5.

Rating: Unrated
