Spider-Man: Far from Home

{5/5} “Cue the lightning.”

Spider-Man: Far from Home, released in 2019

Peter Parker is on a summer trip to Europe with his class. But Nick Fury interrupts his fun because he needs him on a mission. He must help Mysterio defeat the Elementals. Peter just wants to give MJ a present at the Eiffel Tower and tell her how he feels. But he also feels he has a responsibility as Spider-Man — especially after Tony Stark entrusts him with his AI glasses that are attached to incredible technology.

This is a very funny movie, and its connections to the Marvel universe give it a lot of depth. The events of Avengers: Endgame are still fresh in everyone’s minds.

There are 1 or 2 confusing action moments, but other than that it’s brilliant.

The mid-credits scene contains extremely important information for understanding one aspect of the movie. There is a thrilling cameo in the post-credits scene.*

Stars Jake Gyllenhaal , Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, and Jacob Batalon. Directed by Jon Watts (Spider-Man: Homecoming). Michael Giacchino’s music is fabulous, and includes a hint of the Avengers theme.

Spoiler alert

*J. K. Simmons  as J. Jonah Jameson, reprising the role he last played in Spider-Man 3.

    Hey Dave,

    I think I still like Homecoming better, since I think that one has the best villain in the MCU (most logical in relation to the hero). But this one was really funny, and the kids seemed to like it better.
