Spider-Man: Far from Home

Spider-Man: Far from Home ★★★

In Spider-Man: Far from Home, a young Peter Parker continues his journey of self-discovery as a superhero, trying to find his place and self-confidence while dealing with the pressure now bestowed on him. At the same time, he has to come to terms with the fact that he is not just a regular teenager and will have to find a way to combine his newfound responsibilities as Spider-Man with life, love, friends and family.

Brief notes:

- The film takes a while to really get things in motion and the first act is a little weak.
- Tom Holland is really charismatic (and has very nice hair)
- The villain's narrative arc is a little silly, but Jake Gyllenhaal manages to pull it off.
- Most of the supporting characters (professors and classmates) are rather plain and inconsequential.
- There is a lot of the silly Marvel humour that, surprisingly, I didn't find as annoying as I thought.
- Nick Fury saying "bitch, please" to Peter Parker did make me laugh.
- The action in superhero movies, and specifically the big confrontation between heroes and villains, is getting a little overblown.
- The final revelation is promising.
- The film is entertaining, but it's just another generic superhero film that brings nothing new to the over-saturated genre.
- The question remains: what direction will the MCU take from now on?
