Mitch’s review published on Letterboxd:
For the first time in almost a year when I saw it in theatres, I finally revisited Spider-Man: Far from Home and I had pretty much the same experience as I did the first time. It seems like the general reception has only gotten worse over time but I still stand by my opinion that this is a fantastic superhero film and definitely in the upper half of the MCU films in terms of quality. My score had decreased slightly, mostly because I probably overrated it initially but I still love so much about it and have only a few flaws. Tom Holland is my favourite Spider-Man and I like the film’s story, it uses elements that hadn’t been touched on in this cinematic universe which I really enjoyed. I really like Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio as well, I didn’t enjoy everything they did with him but he worked for the most part. The after-credits scenes are also some of the best, one for nostalgia and the other for the possible future outlook of this franchise. As the bookend to the Infinity Saga and the beginning of the MCU transition period, this does a lot to wrap up old stories as well as bring in continuing ones, I love this movie and I understand why it may not be everyone’s favourite but it’s a top tier comic book film in my opinion. Spider-Man: Far from Home is one of my favourites from last year and my thoughts remain mostly unchanged from my first watch, a great superhero film and film in general.
