He fights to save innocent people in harm's way, using all his might and superpowers to hold up an elevator or keep a boat afloat.
But that's true of practically all of the Superhero movies.
Stark, however, sees a young man who's too immature for his own good, ready, perhaps, to fight in a crunch but not someone reliable enough to be called an Avenger.
As Parker navigates the excitement of his prospects and pines after a girl (Laura Harrier), his best friend Ned (Jacob Batalon) discovers his secret masked, web-slinging identity. Most of the first half and much of the rest of the movie is built around dry humor that often get a laugh but grows a bit tiresome as the film seems ever more intent on generating laughter rather than showcasing action or building character.
Following the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Peter Parker attempts to balance his life in high school with his career as the web-slinging superhero Spider-Man.

There are only so many ways to skin the proverbial cat, in this case only so many ways to depict the character's physical strengths, unnatural abilities, mental state, and emotional connections to others.
Things are going to get blown up, people are going to be in peril.
Black levels hold very deep for the duration, critical in the film's numerous dark and nighttime scenes. Very mild noise is visible in a few places, but the image appears otherwise clean at the source and is encoded efficiently.
Fans should be very satisfied with Sony's efforts on this one.
Meanwhile, a new villain, Vulture (Michael Keaton), born of greed and access to alien technology, arrives on the scene with the goal of acquiring more power for himself and his growing criminal organization. It does, to its credit, take the humor as an opportunity to character build, which includes reintroducing audiences to the character by way of Peter's video diary that sees him recruited, travel overseas, and eventually battle amidst the action from Civil War. It assumes audience understanding of how Peter Parker became Spider-Man and doesn't bother with the spider bite, the gradual changes to his physiology, the slow harness of his newfound powers, that sort of thing.
The Civil War montage simply establishes this film's place in the greater MCU.
How many scenes of Spider-Man using all his might and webs to hold up some in-peril bus or train or boat can audiences tolerate to watch?
