First off, this will be a NO SPOILER review! No need to worry at all, I wouldn’t want it spoiled for me so I wouldn’t spoil it for anyone else.
Alright let’s start- BEST MARVEL MOVIE EVER. I am dead serious. People had their speculations with cgi, story, etc., but I can assure you- this is an amazing movie. Jon Watts has created an amazing superhero story, with lots of action, heart, and a little bit of cheeky teen romance. Peter’s character developement is absolutely phenomenal. I was in awe in Holland’s acting and how he really made me feel for him and how he really made me love the character even more. Jake gyllenhall was absolutely fantastic. I’d say more but I don’t want to spoil. Zendaya too showed so much character development. MJ doesn’t seem so cold and uninviting anymore. She did a phenomenal job portraying. Batalon was SO funny. The perfect amount of comedy relief. Jon Favreau was a surprising stand out to me. His portrayal of Happy was so great. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you see it. Now the comedy...
IT WAS TOP NOTCH. IT WAS HILARIOUS. THE THEATER WAS LAUGHING THE WHOLE TIME. it was so refreshing and it was genuinely funny. Nothing was forced.
The fight scenes were AMAZING. This movie had 4?5? Acts? I don’t remember I just know there was many- and I was on the edge of my seat for each one. The Peter tingle does come in handy ;). The swinging in this movie is stylish and the best I think I’ve ever seen. I’m still in awe.
Now the post credit scene. Not gonna spoil anything but I- wow.
Spiderman far from home is the best movie in the entirety of the mcu. Want comedy? It’s got comedy. Want action? It’s got action. Want heart? It’s got a lot of heart. Want cheeky awkward teen romance? It’s got it. What ever you do this summer- see this movie.
