Spider-Man: Far From Home continues with the adventure of Spider-man, after the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016); Spider-man: Homecoming (2017); Avengers: Infinity War (2018) & Endgame (2019). Spider-man must take responsibility & battle new dangers, in a world that will never be the same.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is a great stylized fun superhero film. And the second sequel that surpasses the original and lives up to the rest of the MCU movies. It is a lot of fun, action packed; Tom Holland and the cast were great. The story does take in for a surprising turn with a mysterious character like Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) appearing out of nowhere to fight against these giant beasts called Elementals. Which he needs the help from Spider-Man (Tom Holland).
The plot literally begins right after the events of Avengers: Endgame. The world is recovering from the snap. Peter and his classmates are going on a European trip. Peter is trying to express his feelings for MJ (Zendaya). While, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is trying to enlist Peter to join him and Mysterio to battle against Elementals that are appearing around the world.
It was a great plot. Referencing back to Endgame from the snap and the aftermath of people trying to resume their lives. The plot does play around with the idea of multi universes and dimensions. Without giving spoilers about the villains like the elementals. Mysterio is an interesting character. Peter wants a normal life to be a regular teenager. Nick wants Peter to claim the responsibility of being an Avenger. That Tony Stark would want Peter to take his position.
The direction, the music score, and the script are fast moving. It is also a lot of fun. Peter’s class mates also deliver with them embarking on a trip. Some of them questioning Peter’s absence when he disappears during big fights. There is plenty of humor to make you laugh and cheer for the character. I think this is by far one of the better Spider-Man films that has a great time and delivering a lot of action without letting it distract you from a story.
There are a lot of fun action sequences. Jon Watts direction did a great job with the cinematography work in capturing the action. Seeing a blown up shot with Mysterio battling against the elementals. And Spider-man flying between buildings and doing some aerial fights. There is a twist that spins the film in an interesting direction which we have not seen in any of the Spider-man movies thus far. It is trippy, crazy, and insane but well made. You will know when Spider-man comes across this scene.
Overall, Spider-Man: Far From Home is a great superhero film. It is one of the best movies in the MCU series. I loved it more than the first film. Tom Holland and the cast ensemble did great. Zendaya had more of a bigger role which she does great. Jon Favreau and Marisa Tomei were fun and great. Jake Gyllenhaal did a great job as his character which was quite interesting. The film is action packed, funny, and one of the fun superhero movies you will enjoy. There are also a mid credit scene and at the very end a post credit scene that is definitely worth checking out. Which may be setting up for an interesting direction in the MCU.
While other Spider-man movies have plenty of merit (and others don’t), Homecoming is by far the greatest rendition of Spider-man movies ever created for the silver screen. Maguire was a great Peter and Garfield was a great Spidey but Holland nails both of them. Another try to show us the same angsty story about power...
