Movie Review - Spider-Man: Far From Home

Movie Review - Spider-Man: Far From Home
I'm a big fan of the rebooted Spider-Man series, with Tom Holland in the lead role, and I enjoyed him in Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, I'm going to make a bold statement: I enjoyed this Spider-Man movie more than Avengers: Endgame, probably because it has a lot more humor in it.

Peter Parker (Holland), aka Spider-Man, is excited to go on his class trip to Europe - his plan is to buy a Black Dahlia necklace for MJ, and present it to her on top of the Eiffel Tower, while declaring his love (okay, his "like") for her. However, things definitely don't go according to plan, as Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) needs Peter Parker to battle a new threat, along with Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), a newcomer onto the Avengers scene. Not everything is as it seems, though, and Peter soon figures out that there are other threats that need to be taken care of.

I really enjoyed this movie, and I'd recommend that you see it on the biggest screen possible - the screening was at Emagine Royal Oak's EMAX theater, and the sound and screen were amazing. I'd also think that this could be good in 3D, so I might see it again in 3D within the next few weeks. Holland is great again as Peter Parker, and it was fun to see Jackson back as Nick Fury, as well as Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill (though I will always think of her as Robin from How I Met Your Mother), and Peter Parker's set of high school friends.

Yes, definitely see this movie. It's probably one of the best superhero movies I've seen in a long time, and I almost gave it a perfect 5/5 star rating, except I did check my watch once or twice. Don't forget to stay for the mid- and end-credit scenes too; I had to make a bathroom run right before the mid-credit scene, so I unfortunately missed it, but it has at least one memorable cameo, apparently. I'd recommend Spider-Man: Far From Home for both superhero fans and non-fans alike, and although you don't need to have seen Spider-Man: Homecoming before seeing this one, it will definitely help fill in the backstories for Peter and his friends, as well as Nick Fury and co.

Spider-Man: Far From Home
will be in theaters on July 2nd, and is rated PG-13 with a runtime of 129 minutes. 4.5 stars out of 5.
