Samuel Bird’s review published on Letterboxd:
Spider-Man is back and it’s kind of weird.
The first half is a mess, with too many characters, weak dialogue, filler scenes and none of the plot points really landing for me- particularly regarding the events of Endgame.
Thankfully around halfway into the film, the plot actually becomes interesting. When Mysterio’s character gets developed, Spider-Man: Far From Home actually has something going for it- Gyllenhaal killed it by the way (90% of what I was in the cinema for). The main plot weaves with the subplots comfortably making the final hour or so flows nicely. The action is pretty good, along with the visual effects and editing.
Overall this film doesn’t really know what it’s trying to be and I didn’t get much out of it however it does leave an anticipating cliffhanger which I think will be good for the next film in this franchise.
