Aaaand... i'm back.

So, Far From Home is better than Homecoming in mostly every aspect.
There is more Zendaya, there is more awkward science teacher humour, Angourie Rice finally whitened her teeth and Marisa Tomei's sex appeal as New York City's hottest aunt is finally put on good use, even for her marginal role.
I'm almost ashamed of how much i wanted the hilariously dumb vacation sequences to never end, in spite of the actual action and super-hero plot (who was still really good, btw).
There is no Michael Keaton, but the villain spot is not left vacant for very long: i can't believe of how much enjoyed the absolute feebleness of Jake Gyllenhaal's performance as a good guy, and i savored every moment before he eventually dropped his shenanigans.
Just as Homecoming, Far From Home salvages from the shared cinematic universe where it belongs and lives in the incredibly long shadow cast by Tony Stark with the first Iron Man, but this time the execution is far better, the delivery more fun and the movie more fast paced. The last act is trippier and more effective than most of the action sequence of Doctor Strange.
This is perfect embodiment of the summer blockbuster, and i loved every moment of it.

P.S. One star is mostly for Umberto Tozzi in the soundtrack.
