Allison M. 🌱 @ TIFF’s review published on Letterboxd:
"They'll believe anything."
Tom Holland is an okay Spider-Man, but I am so sick of reboots. I was not happy with Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man reboot, simply because it was a reboot. And now, there's another one. Tom Holland freakishly looks like Tobey Maguire.
There's one part in the film, where the camera seemed to show the POV of drones and it felt like a video game. It might have been cool, but I'm not sure what they were going for. It messed with the tone - and as someone who enjoys movies but not video games (usually), I felt like I was the wrong person watching this movie. I get upset over demographics usually - movies that are meant for a certain age/race/gender other than my own often appeal to me; I hate heavy marketing. I hate if I watch one movie of a certain "type", I'll see a ton of movies for that type of movie, as if that's the only thing I would like.
Anyway, "far from home" refers to Peter Parker in Europe. There are lots of good locations, but overall, it wasn't my thing.
