Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home ★★★★

My GOD! Never thought I’d see the day where a Spider-Man movie would live up to the masterpiece that is Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2, but here we are. Where Homecoming serves as a fun, coming-of-age introduction to this iteration of Peter Parker, Far From Home seeks to really test him in an intense psychological and emotional battle. Something else I never thought I’d see: Mysterio, done well and in the damn-near comic book accurate costume. Jake Gyllenhaal brings a fantastic edge to the character and really sells it. As it stands, he’s now my second favorite Spider-Man villain in film just behind Willem Dafoe’s Norman Osborne. 

The film itself serves as the perfect epilogue to the Infinity Saga. It wraps up Tony Stark’s legacy with a lovely red and black bow and lets us know that the future is in good (but sticky) hands. While it doesn’t really give any hints as to where the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going, it does reveal that Spider-Man and everyone he loves are heading into a world of absolute danger.
