Spider-Man: Far From Home was such a good movie! (review)

Spider-Man: Far From Home was seriously a great movie. It was on par with, if not better than, Spider-Man: Homecoming. I was engaged during the entire movie. From the student tribute to Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Widow, all the way to the post scene credits, this was an excellent ending to the past 10 years of awesome entertainment that the MCU has provided us.

Some spoilers ahead, no major ones

Peter Parker’s journey from the beginning of the film to the end of the film was very relatable. He mourned Tony Stark through the whole movie and used his school trip as a way to get his mind off things. Peter clearly wanted to regain some sense of normality in his life and dodge the responsibility that Tony bestowed upon him in death.

He tries to express his feelings to MJ, makes up an excuse to Nick Fury for not being able to help fight the elements, and even easily trusts the next father figure he’s introduced to in Quenton Beck.

Peter’s not thinking straight through most of the movie and that’s how he’s taken advantage of. Honestly, Mysterio teaches him a valuable lesson, even though it’s at the expense of a lot of things.

Speaking of Mysterio, Jake Gyllenhaal was excellent in this role! I’m familiar with the Mysterio character, so I already knew he wasn’t really a friend of the Avengers. However, I was almost fooled into thinking Quenton Beck actually wasn’t the con-artist we know him as in the comics and in the animated series.

Watching Quenton Beck turn into Mysterio and finding out his motive was such a good reveal. I never saw it coming. It was really well done. His entire build up was really well done. And the illusion sequences were the best part of the movie.

Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury was on point and the surprising reintroduction of J.K Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson was perfectly annoying. If you’ve played Spider-Man (the most recent video game release) you’ll appreciate that the news broadcasts of the Daily Bugle have been incorporated in Spider-Man: Far From Home as well.

Glad to see both J.Jonah Jameson and the Daily Bugle make their way into this iteration of Spider-Man.

Usually, I get a tad annoyed by adding love scenes into action movies. I don’t understand their purpose and sometimes I feel like they draw away from the important happenings going on. But, MJ and Peter were super cute and awkward. This version of Mary Jane is sarcastic and at least tries to hold her own during situations of trouble. So I liked it.

I want to spoil you! That’s how fun and good the movie was. But I won’t. That’s how good it was!

If you haven’t seen Spider-Man: Far From Home, you should definitely make time to. It’s refreshing and the post-credit scenes will make your jaw drop. I’m excited about the next phase of the MCU, even though we have to wait a few years for it to begin.

  3. I loved this movie, especially how it showed, in this age, people are so willing to accept what they see. Mysterio was a pretty good character, but I have a love/hate war going with the way Marvel ended the movie with that angsty post-credit clip! Am dying for the next Spiderman now; this is by far the best of all the Spiderman’s Marvel ever made.

    Look at me raving now . . .

  4. I really hope that this makes it to my little towns tiny cinema (we only got endgame a couple of weeks ago) because this review has me really excited to see it! I might watch the first one while I wait because I skipped over it – having not been a fan of previous spidermans (spidermen?)
