Movie Review: Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home was a surprisingly strong sequel. In fact, I slightly enjoyed this one over Spider-Man: Homecoming.

It felt more realised, the narrative flowed better, the balance between the high school romance/comedy and the larger than life superhero stuff was perfect and the story was consistently interesting - it rarely gave Peter Parker a chance to relax. The final battle was also a lot more intense and the action sequences felt more confidently handled by the same director this time around. Plus, the CGI work here was absolutely mesmerizing and Tom Holland was exceptional. The character arc of Mysterio though was a little less compelling compared to another character from Homecoming - I will stop there just to not spoil anything - and that exposition dump on Mysterio's character toward the third act of the film was a weird choice. That said, Jake Gyllenhaal was absolutely superb in the role.

Spider-Man: Far From Home was very much a character film and the fact that it felt more contained felt fresh to me. It felt like both its own movie and a meaningful followup to Avengers: Endgame. It had it's fair share of flaws, but it's one of those movies that you just roll with it and let it slide.
