Clear your schedule this weekend, the Spider-Man: Homecoming reviews are in — and they're amazing. Critics were pleasantly surprised by the reboot, which is the sixth Spider-Man film made in the last 15 years.

The film is currently at a 94 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. To compare, Andrew Garfield's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is at 52 percent, while Toby Maguire's Spider-Man 3 is at 63 percent.

Honestly, it was hard to find negative reviews for the movie, it was so overwhelmingly well received. Critics loved Tom Holland's portrayal of the iconic superhero, as well as the realistic teen-focused storyline. One critic even said it was one of the best Marvel movies ever.

That said, a few reviewers weren't so thrilled, citing lackluster action scenes and too much Iron Man as negative. See a selection of our favorite reviews below.

The Great

This third time's the charm in Marvel's pantheon of Spider-Man portrayers. Tobey Maguire was pretty good, Andrew Garfield was so-so, but Holland ... Well, when you've got it, you've got it.

Soren Anderson, Seattle Times

An authentic, refreshingly nerdy and high-spirited reboot of the well-worn Marvel franchise ..

Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post

Watts nails the timeless cornerstones of adolescence: the crippling anxiety mixed with brash confidence, the life-or-death dimensions of a crush, the impatience to grow up.

Angie Han, Mashable

It's not only the best Spider-Man movie -- it's one of the best films in Marvel's cinematic universe.

Mark Daniell, Toronto Sun

The Good

No cobwebs on Spidey - Spider-Man: Homecoming feels breezily, pleasingly fresh.

Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

Beginning with a score that riffs on the late-'70s cartoon and closing with a slyly funny after-credits scene, it's as sure-footed as its arachnid namesake.

Sara Stewart , New York Post

If they're going to be as fizzy and funny and warmhearted as this, keep 'em coming.

The Bad

For long stretches, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is an above-average young-adult movie with some super powers thrown in

Christopher Lawrence, Las Vegas Review-Journal

The movie breaks no new ground, and action sequences that were intended to be thrilling - such as an epic battle on the Staten Island Ferry - just sit there on the screen, incapable of stirring a single pulse, but content in their competence.

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

A Spider-Man movie trapped in an Iron Man movie.
