Blu-ray Review: Spider-Man: Homecoming

November 21, 2017

By John Corrado

Picking up right after where we first met him in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming brings Peter Parker (Tom Holland) back to being an awkward high schooler, who’s growing restless and is desperate to prove himself as a real hero.  Going against the wishes of his mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), he sets out to take down the Vulture (Michael Keaton), a working class scrap collector turned weapons dealer.

Working as both an entertaining superhero movie and an enjoyable high school comedy, Spider-Man: Homecoming is simply a ton of fun to watch, and the best outing for the webslinger since Sam Raimi’s first two films.  This is a franchise extension that both stands on its own and fits perfectly into the larger fabric of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, delivering a fresh take on this beloved and iconic character.  It was easily one of my favourite movies of the summer, and you can read our three views of the film right here.

The Blu-ray also includes ten deleted and extended scenes, a gag reel, a pop-up trivia track, and the featurettes A Tangled Web, Searching for Spider-Man, Spidey Stunts, Aftermath, The Vulture Takes Flight, Jon Watts: Head of the Class, Pros and Cons of Spider-Man, as well as Rappin’ With Cap, which combines some of the amusing Captain America PSAs from the film.  For reference, I got the 4K Ultra HD set for review, which also comes with a regular Blu-ray copy of the film.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a Sony Pictures Home Entertainment release.  It’s 133 minutes and rated PG.
