Amazing reboot, different theme from your typical superhero as per all Marvel Studio films so far.
The theme for this one is grounded, street-level and teen oriented; and wonderfully executed.
The acting is superb from the cast, but Michael Keaton is the gift that keeps on giving. His presence and facial expressions stole the scenes as per his acting signature. Marissa Tomei was a delight and so were the young high school cast. Robert Downey Jr was as per his usual self, he didn't hog the scenes but he complimented Tom Holland very nicely in their scenes.
In regards to the link to the other MCU films, well it was there but it wasn't over bearing, this film felt very separate and individual but with the rest of the other films lingering in the background with their impact to the universe.
I would say this film is EQUAL to Wonder Woman as far as superhero films this year goes. Both are amazing and well executed.
Who said Super hero films are getting stale?
