Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home ★★★½

So I’m up in London for a few nights and on my first night up here I begin getting ready for bed, my girlfriends already a sleep at this point, until Spider-Man comes on. It’s midnight but of course you know I’m going to watch it fully! Spider-Man: Far From Home is a great second addition to the ‘Home’ trilogy. While it’s my least favourite, Homecoming is endlessly rewatchable and No Way Home is a masterpiece of the genre, Far From Home still holds many fun moments, enjoyable performances and consequences that shook the MCU. Tom Holland is once again great as Spider-Man, showing a teenager who just wants to escape his Superhero life perfectly, but it’s Jake Gyllenhaal that truly steals the spotlight. His portrayal of Mysterio is fantastic, it’s fun, energetic and controls the scenes around him. Everyone’s great within and the story is, well, rather brilliant. They do what Spider-Man does best, blending sentimentality, action and teen awkwardness into a European road-tip movie.
