Sal’s review published on Letterboxd:
Spider-Man: Far From Home is the MCU's latest film and the last one from Phase 3. Before I went and saw this movie, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not. Spider-Man: Homecoming in my opinion was a good, fun movie, but it wasn't great. There were a few aspects to that film that I didn't really enjoy. With this sequel, I didn't know what to really expect from it. I have to say that I really liked it a lot!!!! It's such an improvement over Homecoming. This film is really adventureous and I really liked that a lot. The last time I had fun going to see a marvel film was Thor: Ragnarok, even though Far From Home is not as ridiculously fun as Ragnarok, it's still really fun than I expected it to be. Tom Holland is great here. Let's talk about Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio; I thought he was okay, I wish that he could have been more of a standout than he actually was because he is a really good actor, and even before this film was released, the one thing many people were excited about was to see Jake Gyllenhaal in a marvel movie. Jon Watts's directing was really good this time around, and if they decide to make another Spider-Man sequel, then I'm excited to see what Watts will bring to the table next. One thing that was a major improvement here was the humor. The humor was mostly funny and I believe that's due to the writing by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommer instead of John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein. I'm so glad this movie was good because this was a really special movie since Spider-Man: Far From Home is the last MCU movie of the 2010s. And with these ten years, we've all celebrated most of the years going to see a marvel movie. So, with this being that last one to be released in the 2010s, I'm glad it didn't suck, and I can't wait to see what Phase 4 will bring to the table. Overall, I really liked Spider-Man: Far From Home, and I can't wait to see it again.
