REVIEW: Spider-Man: Far From Home

After 11 years and 23 films, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s epic Infinity Saga has come to a close now that Spider-Man: Far From Home has hit theaters.

Spider-Man: Far From Home sees the Wall-Crawler return after being dusted by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and un-snapped by the Hulk in Avengers: Endgame. The events of those two films changed the landscape of everything and fans get their first glimpse of that here in Far From Home.

In a world struggling to find normalcy after the un-snapping, we find our hero struggling with this new reality as well. After the death of Iron Man Peter Parker is lost on what is next for Spider-Man. How does he live up to the great expectations of his former mentor Tony Stark and be the hero Tony saw in him?

Those answers do not come easy especially when Nick Fury, Maria Hill and a new hero who calls himself Mysterio enter the picture during Peter’s summer vacation trip to Europe. Peter who is trying to live life as a normal functioning teenager is tasked with helping Fury, Hill and Mysterio against a new threat known as the Elementals.

To put it simply Far From Home is dare I say amazing. Jon Watts does it again in his second outing as director after helming Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Avengers: Endgame left fans with countles questions. One of the biggest being what is the state of the world after the un-snap? Far From Home answers these questions in a fun and witty way that is sure to please fans.

Far From Home also has some of the best visual work of any MCU film. The film manages to even outdo Dr. Strange’s visual work; a film that is essentially a giant kaleidoscope at times.

The action does not disappoint either. Fans will be more than happy to see that Spidey, his powers and intellect are in full-effect here. The action scenes paired with the beautiful visual effects make a for a great time.

Arguably the best aspect of the film is the humor. When dealing with a hero who makes as many quips as Spider-Man, the movie can not be devoid of humor and Far From Home definitely checks that box.

Far From Home is just another win in Marvel’s ever growing catalogue. Is this Marvel’s best film? No. But it is a great addition and a fitting end to the Infinity Saga.

This goes without say but make sure to stay later, the mid and post credits scenes will definitely keep fans talking for months.

Far From Home is going to cause a stir among die hard Spider-Man fans. This movie is going to force fans to ask themselves a very tough question.

Which of Spider-Man’s movies is the best?

Is it Spider-Man 2 or is it Spider-Man: Far From Home?
