Spider-Man: Far from Home

Spider-Man: Far from Home ★★★

"Europeans love Americans!"

A mostly by-the-numbers 2019 superhero flick, with a few lows (the general premise, lacklustre direction, Jake Gyllenhaal in the first act) and some memorable highs (whenever the film remembers it is in Europe, a surprise casting and Jake Gyllenhaal in the third act). I'm still not a fan of Holland's iteration of Spider-Man - being a bit tired of the character and a childhood loyalist to the Raimi films - but let's say it took...one cheeky move or two to win me over by the time the lights turned back on.

Not essential, but worth a watch when it hits Disney+. Bring back Michael Keaton you cowards.
