Bethany’s review published on Letterboxd:
my mum said this is the best spider-man movie she has ever seen! i think she may be right. the visual effects and sound editing were amazing and it actually had an interesting story. other than into the spider-verse, a lot of the spider-man movies have super similar plots and are almost always set in NYC—which i love—but far from home was so great because we were learning a whole different story with so many subplots in beautiful locations that were utilized in the most creative ways possible.
jake gyllenhaal portrayed mysterio incredibly, he was quite literally the perfect villain and i was so happy to see him thrive on the big screen again. also, jacob batalon and angourie rice were so great? i loved their scenes together so much and ned is def my favourite character. i can’t wait to see what they do next with peter’s story :-)
