Before you continue... this review has major spoilers! Please see the movie before watching this, you don't want its twists and turns spoiled for you!
- Fantastic Action and VFX
- THAT Mysterio Sequence was probably one of the best scenes in a movie ever. The double twist at the end of it ending with the train was art.
- The acting across the board was fantastic
- The opening scene about the Blip was AMAZING!
- Happy was as great as ever
- The new suits were awesome
- The themes of objective truth and how people will choose what they want to believe was amazing
- Dressing up JJJ as Alex Jones was INSPIRED
- The teachers were really funny
- Quentin Beck framing Spider-Man and revealing his identity for one last FU was fantastic and I have never been more excited for the next Spider-Man movie.
- There were a couple awkward / clunky editing moments
- The whole Brad storyline was pretty eh for me, and took up way too much of the 2nd act. I think it could have been shortened or completely cut but idk.
- Peter Parker was so stressed and sad the whole time that I feel like we missed out on the optimistic Peter we got in Civil War and Homecoming. It makes sense for the story and character (as he has been beyond traumatized and the events of this movie did not help) but I don't think I remember a single quip or anything the whole movie. Which I think works for the movie, but hopefully next time we see him he'll be more back to his old self.
Other Comments : While I prefer the Skrulls to be evil, I am pretty excited to see where the MCU and Fury are going with them, I hope the utilize them to their fullest extent. Maybe there is still hope for Secret Invasion. I am very glad that Nick Fury and Maria Hill were Skrulls this whole time because I felt that they were acting a little bit out of character and were too stupid to be the real ones. I think the real Fury would have figured out Mysterio's scheme real quickly.
