What else can be said besides wow?
Spider-Man: Far From Home delivers as an exhilarating thrill ride from start to finish. The movie will inevitably face comparisons to Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man 2 but, Far From Home comes very, very close.
The return of familiar characters will definitely remind you that we are still connected to the rest of the MCU but, in a smaller scale.
We can call this movie a soft reboot to clear the way for Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it’s the perfect palate cleanser for a post-Tony Stark era.
Tom Holland delivers as Peter Parker and Spider-Man. He’s already the best Spider-Man actor in my opinion.
From the beginning of the film, we are reminded of the #Snappening or “The Blip” as it is called. 5 years have passed and we get a soft reset of the MCU. We even get a reminder from two minor characters.
The film then shifts back to our main character, Peter Parker. He’s already made plans for the class Euro Trip and one thing leads to another and we get a mostly predictable twist. I’d like to emphasize on mostly. There’s a huge twist in the mid-credits scene. 😉😉😉😉😉
The film is predictable if you are familiar with Mysterio’s story in the comics but, that doesn’t take away the fact that this movie is epic. The last act of the movie was the most comic book-like sequence in any superhero movie, Marvel or DC.
A majority of the movie feels like teen drama cliché but, the pace definitely picks up I’m the final act where we get callbacks galore. I won’t say anything else because you definitely have to see this movie in the cinema.
I watched this in the Greenbelt 4DX Cinema but, I would recommend watching it in a regular cinema. People who wear glasses, such as myself, won’t be able to fully appreciate the story and the action of the film.
