Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home ★★★★½

Like all good stories involving everyone’s favorite web-head, Spider-Man: Far From Home packs a lot of action and heart while also offering a fun story after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Like Homecoming, it’s sense of comedy and use of high school tropes are really refreshing, although I do feel a bit iffy on certain recycled plot elements from its predecessor that worked a hair better in that film.

Regardless, it is still a blast. Tom Holland continues killing it as Peter Parker, but Zendaya and Jake Gyllenhaal as MJ and Mysterio, respectively, were fantastic standouts in an already likable supporting cast, stealing every scene they were in. Director Jon Watts definitely feels more comfortable in this world, and delivers some truly memorable sequences and imagery. 

As far as I’m concerned, if this same creative team continues to craft films as fun as these two are, I’d be down for whatever they come up with for the future of this iteration of Spider-Man. And boy, does this film offer some exciting stuff for upcoming releases to explore.
