Review: Spider-man: Far From Home

Back from the blip.

Peter Parker (Tom Holland) has had quite the year. He fought Thanos, died, came back, and fought Thanos again. Now he wants to have a relaxing summer on a science trip to Europe so he can hang out with Ned (Jacob Batalon) and tell MJ (Zendaya) how he really feels. Only Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Colbie Smoulders) show up and hijack his vacation when strange things start happening.

Far From Home has the tough spot in following Avengers: Endgame and having to show the aftermath of Thanos' snap. They don't dwell on it, but they manage to show both the hilarious side, and the sad one with people being displaced. 

Holland continues to be my favorite live action Spider-man and he does a great job with all of Peter's emotions. He feels the tremendous pressure of no longer having a mentor in Tony Stark yet still just wants to do regular things like give the girl he likes a necklace. There's never too much Fury in a Marvel movie either, and I'm glad he plays a supporting role here.

Mild spoilers about the villain - I don't consider this a major spoiler because I think it's quite obvious what they're going to do, but the trailers show otherwise,  - I liked Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio. Gyllenhaal was really good and even though I can see some fans not being crazy about his reasoning, I like how they inserted it all.

One of the best things about this movie is the special effects. At first they seem strange because we see a lot of Peter flying around without his suit, but they do some really cool things later in the film that reminded me a bit of Into The Spider-verse and it looked amazing.

Far From Home has two very interesting credits scenes that are certainly going to shape the way the MCU moves forward and not just for Peter, so definitely don't miss those. I'm happy to say our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-man has yet to disappoint.

  1. Those credits scenes are interesting for sure. The first really excited me. Still not sure about the second one. Sooo many questions about that one.

  2. I liked it a lot. But then again, huge Tom and Jake fan, so it's hard to look past that. I feel like with many Marvel secondary movies, the script is always its weakness. It was really noticeable here, where I think Tom had to carry a lot physically, not so much verbally. I sort of wish there was a bit more of the emotional impact shown, I feel like they chickened out a bit... I would have gone darker.

    1. I agree, I wish there were more scenes with Peter and May. I feel like they have so much potential for drama there.

  3. The credits scenes were better than the actual movie, it was just so messy and I somehow hated watching it even more than Homecoming

    1. That's so crazy. I'm not sure if I like this better than Homecoming or not, I think a bit less, but I just love Spider-man in general.
