As far as I could remember “Spider-Man” (The one with Tobey Maguire) was the very first movie I’ve laid eyes on ever since I was a kid. And I was smitten. Of course the Green Goblin dude horrified the heck out of my wits but Spider-Man came swinging by to save the day. This time round the friendly neighbourhood whiz (Tom Holland as Spider-Man/ Peter Parker) combats various elementals and lets us in on his lingering feelings for Mary Jane (Zendaya Coleman) on his class trip to Europe. Remember, he’s still a teenager and this sort of stuff is equally beguiling for Spidey just as fighting a super villain.

In Venice, Parker encounters a threat to both his teenage romance and the Universe. A water elemental surfaces from underneath the canals and a pretty boy named Brad (Remy Hii) starts showing a sudden interest in Mary Jane. Parker manages to disguise himself from his classmates and destroys the elemental with the help of Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck / Mysterio). The elementals continue to strike in different parts of the world. But, Spidey here continues to chase the girl of his dreams. Or at least that’s what he plans on doing.

After the death of Iron Man (AKA Tony Stark) Parker finds himself unworthy of Stark’s possessions including his artificial intelligence aviators or as they call it E.D.I.T.H which has access to numerous over the top weapons and the Stark data base. Being the youngest among the Avengers doesn’t stop Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) from giving the kid a break. Grieving over Stark’s demise and a potential girlfriend on the run Parker refuses to accompany Fury in place of Iron Man to fight another dangerous fire elemental.

Fury tails Peter Parker on his class trip and redirects the trip to Prague where the fire element springs out of nowhere creating havoc destroying everything. Overwhelmed by the pressure of the Superhero world Parker quibbles about his follies and shortcomings to Mysterio who provides a comforting shoulder. Parker hands over Stark’s aviators to Mysterio which levels up the story turning him into the bad guy.

Now Mysterio is revealed as an ex-Stark employee who uses holographic-illusions to trigger elemental explosions and his caustic behaviour reaches its peek when he uses E.D.I.T.H to control the drones and multiply them innumerably trooping it across the skies sprawling horrific projections out in the open. Parker leaves for Berlin to discuss his concerns with Fury and battles several illusions which leads him to a train accident leaving him stranded in Netherlands. Happy (Jon Favreau as Harold Hogan AKA Happy) flies Parker to London where he meets an endless sea of drones prowling as Mysterio lurks in pretending to save the world and earns his Superhero Sash. Will Spider-Man save the day? Watch for yourselves!

Tom Holland as Spider-man never fails to impress and Zendaya Coleman as Mary Jane is a peculiar face to reckon with. They create the perfect environment for a flawless teenage love story. While the kids call out the cupids Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury keeps the show running chasing the bad guys and bringing Spidey to do his Super Hero chores. Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio doesn’t surprise us with backflips nor is he a web slinger he floats around in his cape and lets his drones do the wonders. The psychedelic VFXs and projections of the drones were insanely mastered by its creators making the movie a splendid treat for the eyes. The Holograms were completely fool proof patronising the audience leaving their minds dishevelled. It’s amazing how the story had a stern control over our minds and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! So will you guys!
