Action: A teenage superhero tries to prove his worth fighting crime by taking on a villain who's using alien technology to fuel his criminal endeavors.
Peter Parker (TOM HOLLAND) is a 15-year-old who lives in Queens with his Aunt May (MARISA TOMEI). Unbeknownst to her, his best friend, Ned (JACOB BATALON), classmate Michelle (ZENDAYA), school bully Flash (TONY REVOLORI) or the teenager he has a secret crush on, Liz (LAURA HARRIER), Peter is a junior superhero, Spider-Man, what with having gained superpowers via the bite of a genetically altered spider. Yet, despite helping Iron Man save the day (in "Captain America: Civil War"), that superhero's alter-ego, Tony Stark (ROBERT DOWNEY JR.), doesn't believe the teen is ready to join the Avengers and should focus on school and being a teen, albeit with Tony appointing Happy Hogan (JON FAVREAU) as Peter's contact and point man.

Undeterred by that, Peter tells everyone he's an intern for Stark Industries when he's really out stopping small crimes as Spider-Man. When he comes across a number of men trying to steal an ATM, he realizes they're using an advanced weapon to do so. Little does he know that those men work for Adrian Toomes (MICHAEL KEATON), a former salvage company owner who years earlier got cut out of a big contract by one of Stark's subsidiary companies, but not before keeping some of the alien technology they found for themselves.

Since then, they've been using such tech to create powerful weapons that help with their criminal endeavors, while also providing the materials needed to create a powered wingsuit for Toomes that essentially gives him superpowers (as the villain Vulture) whenever he's wearing that. When Peter tries to thwart an illegal sale of such weaponry, he's attacked by Toomes and then rescued by Tony, but only via long distance and his empty Iron Man suit.

All of which means he doesn't pay heed to Peter's warnings about such weaponry. Ned does, however, especially when he learns of Peter's secret identity and abilities as well as being given some of that alien technology to examine. From that point on and as Peter tries to lead his secret double life, he tries to thwart Toomes and his criminal endeavors, unaware of what the villain ultimately has planned.

It's a good bet many will, especially if they're into superhero movies.
For sci-fi action violence, some language and brief suggestive comments.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
