Spider-Man 2 is one of the best superhero movies ever made and that train sequence is one of the most memorable action scenes ever put on film. From an action standpoint, nothing in “Homecoming” stands up to that train sequence and yet, Homecoming is easily the better movie of the two.
There’s a realness to the characters, the relationships and the world that really inspires the most grounded MCU film so far, but thankfully the spectacle keeps pace and is almost as satisfying as the character interactions.
It’s also really, really funny.
Best moment: Trapped under a couple tons of debris, Peter Parker transforms from scared teenage boy into the Spider-Man.
