Spider-Man: Far from Home

Spider-Man: Far from Home ★★★½

Good, but there's some issues, no idea why they thought an intentionally dumbed down version of Karen that fires drone strikes and doxxes people was a good idea. The story tries to up the stakes by having him travel the world while trying to keep his friends safe, but I don't think it was necessary, it takes away the "friendly neighbourhood" aspect of the character. The film as a whole still feels less dramatic than Homecoming which was much smaller scale in comparison.

Apart from that though, I still enjoy it, Jake Gyllenhaal is cheesy, hammy and fun to watch as Mysterio. The VFX and action scenes are all really well detailed. Some people wanted more fallout from Endgame but I actually appreciate that this film got that over with quickly and focused on it's own story. It's a generally fun movie and the mid-credits scene gets me very excited for the future of the series.
