Autobots and Decepticons are at war, with humans on the sidelines. Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.
Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May, under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark, Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine - distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man - but when the Vulture emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

The Academic Decathlon poster is seen twice, but with different dates. Once just before the lunchroom scene, and it shows the date of the competition to be October 13-15th. Later, when Peter is with Ned, and he decides to attend the Academic Decathlon to chase the villains, they both look at a poster of the event hanging on Peter's wall, and the date is for one day, September 14th.

I can't make it to the Decathlon next week. I have the Stark Internship.
Peter's not going to Nationals.
Really, before Nationals?
Figures. He's already bailed out on marching band and robotics club.

I'm not obsessed with him, I'm just super observant.

SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: in prison, inmates Toomes and Gargan meet and talk. Gargan has heard of a rumor that Toomes knows who Spider-Man is, but Toomes keeps silent. See more »
Don't expect a superhero movie. This is more like a long comedic sketch parodying Spider-man.
There are so many wrongs in this movie I 've lost count., but most importantly the vision is wrong. I would prefer Raimi/McGuire's vision by far.
Among other things this reboot is missing the transformation from regular Peter Parker to Spiderman. The most interesting thing to the franchise to watch. And of course his relation with his uncle (who doesn't get a single mention in this film) and how his tragic fate was quintessential to his maturity.
They are still trying to show you the transition from a goofy kiddy Spiderman to something more adult but they are failing miserably, because even in the end the character hasn't mature at all.
And it's that "goofy" version of Spiderman that ruins this movie, as a superhero movie. There aren't any real sentiments at all. Just teenage humor and pranks. And the final revelation and connection between Spiderman and the main villain is too ludicrous to swallow.
For its $175 mil. budget this movie is far from impressive too. Not a big spectacle. All that money went for the CGI Spidey jumping back and forth, but the scenes aren't that impressive and there's a lot to be desired.
Overall: This movie is already a success in Box office multiplying the earnings more than 4 times its budget, so the producers must be happy. BUT it's more like a spoof of Spiderman and not a proper superhero movie. For the true origins of Spiderman, his transformation, his relation with his uncle and the impact of his tragic fate on Peter, you must look elsewhere...
