Classroom rating 6/10

I am a teacher- my class loves all the MCU movies. I was disappointed to hear the word "ass" in the first 10 minutes of the movie since it didn't have it in the original review. We fast forward through the romantic kissing and the hardcore fighting scenes.

Ah, Rosie I love this movie

My favorite movie of all time. Great action, and great development. Not to mention the train fight will never topped, best Spider-Man fight ever. If I see one person bad mouth this movie I will make you suffer through TASM2
