Spider-Man: Far from Home

Spider-Man: Far from Home ★★★½

While this movie definitely has some flaws I have really come to enjoy it for what it is. Part of this might be the confirmation of another trilogy of movies with Holland. I really like the idea of having the first trilogy be high school Peter and the next one could be a college trilogy. Having more time with this iteration of the character makes me more comfortable with this film being a high school comedy. The truth is the comedy in film isn’t my thing. It’s a bit too cartoonish for my taste and takes a lot of the seriousness out of otherwise dramatic scenes. Mysterio is still an amazing Spider-Man villain and Jake Gyllenhaal gives a really fun performance as a version of the character. And Peters arc in the film is really solid. It’s well developed and well executed although it is a bit derivative of Raimi’s Spider-Man 2. Honestly I understand both sides of the argument for this film. I understand and somewhat agree with a lot of the criticism that this film gets but I can still enjoy the other aspects of the film.
