Should you go see Spider-Man: Homecoming?

The latest film in the Marvel universe stars Tom Holland as the boy bitten by a radioactive spider. Is it worth a look? Watch Nicholas Barber’s review in the video above.

Spider-Man: Homecoming sees fresh-faced young British actor Tom Holland play a squeaky-voiced, geekily enthusiastic teenager who has to contend with the trials and tribulations of high-school life as well as the gadgets and gizmos involved with being a superhero.

But these challenges are nothing compared with the baddie of the piece: The Vulture, a discontented blue-collar worker turned killer with robotic wings, played by Michael Keaton. For our reviewer, he’s “one of the best baddies in the Marvel rogues’ gallery.”
