Spider-Man: Far From Home – “The Spectacular Spider-Man” (Spoiler-Free)

Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.

Review:

That Nomad Shad – Spider-Man Far From Home marks the 23rd film in the MCU and provides the epilogue for the Infinity Saga. In the wake of the events of Avengers: Endgame, Peter is adjusting back to High School life and the loss of Tony Stark. His school arranges a two-week vacation for the students to help them reintegrate. Everything goes awry when Nick Fury recruits the help of Peter to take on the Elementals, beings from an alternate reality, hellbent on destroying our planet. Peter teams up with Quentin Beck to take them on.

Spider-Man Far From Home is a fun adventure with lots of thrills and exciting building blocks for the future MCU. The film boasts some incredible set pieces, hopping from city-to-city each more exciting than the previous. However, there are several sequences that really brought comic books to life without feeling campy.

The cast does not disappoint, Tom Holland brings a great balance to the role of Peter Parker, a Peter who just wants to have a bit of normality is his life for once. Jake Gyllenhaal, however, feels like the favourite in the film. He really breathes life into Beck’s character and his motivations. He’s exciting to see on screen and makes the character of Mysterio feel tangible in this universe.

The film isn’t without its faults though. The first third of the film feels slow and a bit drab. It takes some time for the wheels to really start turning. The film also falters with some of the humour and dialogue just falling flat.

Spider-Man: Far From Home isn’t a perfect Spider-Man film, but it’s still a fresh and exciting adventure. It has all the thrills you want with two GREAT post-credit scenes to top it off.

8/10
