Spider-Man: Far from Home

Spider-Man: Far from Home ★★★★½

"You need to step up"

Totally rejected any and all suspicions and worries I had for post-Endgame MCU; Spider-Man: Far From Home is an absolute blast from start to finish. Tom Holland has never been so absorbed into this role of your friendly neighborhood web-slinger, and he absolutely fucking nails it here. THIS is Peter Parker - always having to choose between his desires and solice, or responsibility.

This is also a really tightly written script. With Homecoming having an incredibly crowded writing team, McKenna and Sommers really pace this story incredibly well, and honestly make it incredibly tense and exciting.

One of the worries I had with this one was how exactly they would use Jake Gyllenhaal; an actor whose work I really love and admire, and I have to say he's very much a standout as an incredibly fun character. Jon Watts seemed to be really excited with his casting and Gyllenhaal looks like he's having the time of his life with this.

Far From Home as it stands, is one of the definitive Spider-Man films along with Raimi's sequel and the animated wonder Into the Spider-Verse. It's just so gripping, fun, and honesty, kind of hopeful. Just a total God damn blast, man.
