Spider-Man: Far From Home is the second installment of the Spider-Man franchise and the end of the Infinity Saga of the MCU. The film takes you on a trip with the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, Peter Parker (Tom Holland), as he sets out on a class trip to Europe, all while still mourning his mentor Tony Stark after the events of Endgame. This class trip allows him the benefit to relax and keep his mind at ease, as he plans to spend time with MJ (Zendaya) as much as possible and possibly confess his feelings to her. So he decides to leave behind his heroic responsibilities, his iconic Spidey suit, and ignore several phone calls from Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).
All things seem to be going great right up until an Elemental monster appears during Peter and his classmates’ visit in Venice, disrupting their vacation. It is there Peter is met by Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal). Peter decides to lend a hand and a few web shots.
Overall, I 100% enjoyed this movie from the beginning to the end. I came into the movie with my expectations high,knowing that this movie had to be amazing to follow Avengers: Endgame. Everyone does an amazing job as they did before in Spider-Man: Homecoming, especially Tom Holland and Zendaya as they reprise their roles of one of Marvel’s iconic couples. I think both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home give us some of the best representations of how villains should be written straight from their comic source and translated onto the big screen. Jake Gyllenhaal did a killer job paying Quentin Beck, a.k.a Mysterio. The writing of the character in this movie combined with Jake Gyllenhaal’s expert acting, brought us possibly one of the most well- written villains in any superhero movie to date. Another small thing I personally loved in this movie was that Spidey’s trademark “spidey sense” is well acknowledged as he puts it to good use in a few neat scenes.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is a very well done movie that wraps up the current phase and sets the scene for the next phase of the MCU. And with those end credit scenes, I know for sure we’re once again on a spectacular ride for not just the next Spider-Man movie, but the next line up of MCU movies.
