Spider-man: Far From Home, created by Sony in partnership with Marvel Cinematic Universe, based on characters by Stan Lee: a Film Review


Back in New York City the newly snapped back Peter Parker is back at school.  He is back with his friends, ready to tell MJ how he feels about her, and excited about the school field trip to Europe during the upcoming summer vacation.  He is ready to dive back into his life…because mourning the loss of Tony Stark and being Spider-man are kind of a lot to deal with right now.

When the trip to Europe goes awry with a Water Elemental attacking the city of Venice, Peter has to make a choice to protect his classmates.  Fury confronts Parker, who has been ignoring his phone calls, to give him a gift from Stark… access to E.D.I.T.H., and artificial intelligence that can help him control all of the Stark databases as well as a ton of weapons and tech.

With all of this at his disposal, and a little meddling from Director Fury, the chill trip to Europe that Peter was hoping for may not happen.  Especially when he is forced to work with a new superhero to fight other Elementals that seem to be popping up.

Maybe he will be able to get some time alone with MJ…or maybe there is something in the universe to conspire against everything that he wants…

Review (contains spoilers):

I didn’t like this one as much as the first. 

That could be for a lot of reasons.  Don’t get me wrong it’s still a really great film and I still love Tom Holland’s Peter Parker best of all the live action variations.

There is a lot going on but also not a lot.  And some teen angst that I’m not super down with (though Peter and MJ are adorable in this).

Overall, it’s a good film and Jake Gyllenhaal as the bad guy is always fun.  I’m still excited about the next one so in the end the movie did its job.
