Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home ★★½

This is an enjoyable popcorn movie. From a storytelling standpoint, it's more cohesive than its predecessor, but I still prefer HOMECOMING for its stronger villain. Michael Keaton grounded the first film with more depth. This one feels a lot more breezy and is mostly a comedic roadtrip through Europe, and the villain was just adequate with a very weak motivation.

What I most enjoyed about FAR FROM HOME were the moments focusing on adolescence, like Peter and MJ's budding romance, and I wish this same story had been told with a more serious tone and allowed these moments of Peter's maturation to breathe a little more.

And coming directly after the heavy emotional catharsis of ENDGAME, this had the potential to have had more depth; I wish how "the Blip" had affected society had been treated more seriously instead of just joked about.

Still, it's an entertaining and well-constructed movie, and I had fun with it for what it was.
