Spider-Man: Far From Home Review


– You going to be the next Iron man now? – Well, no, I don’t have time. I’m too busy doing your jobs. – Oh!
– What? – I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Look, keep up the good work,
because I am going on vacation. – [Clint] Serving as
both a lighthearted coda to the decidedly serious
“Avengers: Endgame” and the exciting kickoff to
the next phase of the MCU, “Spider-Man: Far from
Home” is an extremely fun, cleverly executed, and frequently hilarious adventure film. Peter Parker may have been
given a new lease on life in “Endgame,” but that doesn’t
mean it’s all rosy now, or that the sort of ethical challenges that have oft tried the
wall-crawler’s sense of personal life versus
superhero duty have diminished. Peter Parker’s realization of
that particular cross to bear is at the heart of this
highly entertaining new romp. (screaming) (dramatic music) Tony Stark may be dead, but his memory looms
large in “Far from Home.” Peter is frequently within
sight of some shrine to or oversized image of his fallen mentor. Peter struggles to be who
Tony wanted him to be, even as he remains painfully aware that he’s just a local hero, or at least he’d prefer to stay that way. But there’s no kinda
sorta being an Avenger. You’re either one of
Earth’s mightiest heroes or you’re not. – [Peter] I just want to go
on my trip with my friends. Europe doesn’t really need a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. – [Reviewer] “Far from
Home” sees Spidey tested by a new, out-of-this-world threat that will determine
whether he is truly worthy of Tony’s high hopes for him or not, a grand challenge that sees
this battle-tested wall-crawler confront a global danger in a way that his friendly
neighborhood “Homecoming” self would have been ill-prepared to face. To reveal more about the plot and the villainous
machinations of “Far from Home” would be to risk spoilers,
but suffice it to say, the circumstances of Peter’s new mission, which coincides with his
school trip to Europe, perfectly dovetail with the lessons this teen hero needs to learn. – You look really pretty. – And therefore I have value? – No. No, that’s not what I meant at all. I was just–
– I’m messing with you. – [Reviewer] After the
universe-saving scale of “Endgame,” it’s a relief and a bit
of a respite for MCU fans to see Peter get to be
just an awkward, sweet kid who wants to tell the
girl he likes how he feels and hopes that she feels likewise. That’s what makes this Peter
so relatable and lovable. That he also happens to
be a fledgling superhero is what mucks up his
adorkable romantic plans. “Far from Home” is, like its predecessor, “Spider-Man: Homecoming,”
an ’80s movie at heart. If “Homecoming” was a John Hughes movie, then “Far from Home” is a
hybrid of “European Vacation,” “WarGames,” and “Gotcha,” meaning it’s a fish-out-of-water comedy mashed up with a teen romance
and espionage adventure. The latter element is
courtesy of Nick Fury, who is less a mentor for Peter here than the proverbial principal. – You’re Nick Fury. – Put some clothes on. Let’s go for a ride. – Is he gonna be okay like that? – You might want to turn him over so he doesn’t swallow his tongue. – [Reviewer] With Tony gone
and Fury of a one-track mind, it falls to another adult to
serve as Peter’s quasi-mentor, Quentin Beck, played by a
suitably dashing Jake Gyllenhaal as a bold superhero
from an alternate Earth, dubbed Mysterio by our world, who, any true comic fans knows,
is more than meets the eye. Again, to say more is to risk spoilers, but Mysterio’s inclusion is a perfect pick and sly commentary on
our reality-questioning and truth-challenging times. – It’s really nice to have
somebody to talk to about superhero stuff, you know? – Anytime. – [Reviewer] Beck understands
the power of image and perception on both the
personal and grand scale, a persuasive skill that
doesn’t require superpowers so much as a keen understanding
of human fallibility. Marvel fans will undoubtedly get a kick out of the many Easter
eggs included in the film and all the care the filmmakers have given to this particular installment, while both fans and
general audiences alike will be left with plenty
to keep them amped for what lies ahead for the webslinger in Marvel’s Phase 4. (explosion) On a technical level,
this film’s home stretch boasts some of the MCU’s
most impressive visuals this side of “Doctor Strange,” while also addressing some
longstanding fan pet peeves about this Spidey’s
powers and shortcomings. This is a grander, more ambitious film than “Homecoming” in many ways, yet it owes that well-deserved accolade to all the groundwork laid so far in Tom Holland’s past four
screen appearances as Spidey. It’s been great fun to see this new take on the beloved character
evolve to such amazing extent over the last few years. – Get on the jet! – Who are you? – I work with Spider-Man. – You work for Spider-Man? – I work with Spider-Man,
not for Spider-Man. (explosion) New plan! – [Reviewer] “Spider-Man: Far from Home” is a grandly entertaining culmination of the MCU wall-crawler’s journey so far. Thanks to its sweet
humor, clever commentary, and deft action set-pieces, “Far from Home” continues
the journey of Peter Parker from kid hero to Tony Stark successor. The movie sets the table for some exciting new
adventures ahead for Spider-Man and his place in the MCU,
putting him against an antagonist who preys on Peter Parker’s
fears and insecurities in ways no other villain has quite yet. “Far from Home” ends Marvel’s
Phase 3 with a hell of a bang, thrusting its young
wall-crawler into a treacherous but hugely exciting new era. (dramatic music) For more movie reviews,

  1. Saw it a few days ago movie gets a 9.5/10 only cuz it wasn't longer Review Done. Stay for two post credit scenes.

  2. 3 Major issues! U dont know what is real through the whole movie, forced weak romances, nobody knows how to lock a damn door?

  3. That webbed up guy in the beginning of the vid with the leopard print suit probably thought he'd be the next big eccentric villain in town.

  4. O my gosh Mysterio straight up destroyed Peter in that illusion

    I see wat Tom Holland meant when he said there’s one scene we’re gonna hate because it feels like we’re being punched in the face🙀

  5. I don’t care what anyone says. Spider-Man is the real marvel star not iron man. This phase of marvel will be the best, especially if they include X-men characters. You can make the real secret wars.

  6. Overall movie is better than home coming for me atleast. But the 3rd act is just awesome, it feels like the classic 90s Spiderman games. I can just rate this movie a point extra for that last ½ hr.

  7. 9/10 for me. While it wasn’t the most serious, it was certainly has one of the most unique plot, and Mysterio is f*cking awesome.

  8. Absolutely loved the movie. Spiderman has always been my favourite character and I'm so happy with how they made this. Everything in it was a dream come true, and as much as I tried to critique it throughout, by the end, everything about the movie was amazing. Thank you so much marvel for making such a great film!!! Lmao, you completely spoil the villain at the end of the review. Really hoping they make the third movie about carnage<3

  9. anyone notice there was that one scene that played out in trailers and in this video that wasn't in the movie at all? clever marketing strat

  10. You all realize that the villians are you guys, the average nerds and geeks; was there even a non white nerd in Mysterios geek goon squad of losers, I can't remember.

  11. Umm am I the only one who felt this movie was totally average? There are so many plot holes and the movie is just too damn packed for me. It felt like they focused more on steering the universe towards Phase 4 than having a well rounded script. Too forced for my taste. :/

  12. Esta película es terrible, vamos IGN cuanto les paga Marvel por estas críticas tan vendidas. Es cierto tiene buenos efectos y Holland actúa decentemente. Pero luego de todo eso no hay nada, argumento totalmente basura, MJ y el resto de los personajes de escuela son unos …..y los profesores ni se diga, terrible. Cómo alguien nacido en los 90 que ha visto tan buena evolución en las consolas, cines y demás material multimedia….Dios como arruinaron a mi héroe favorito. 4/10.

  13. This is the daily bugal. Peter parker is spiderman.

    Let's see how he recovers from that

    Or he goes the ironman way

    Fri k yeah

  14. The tone was inconsistent. Childish then serious then comedy then childish then romance then drama then comedy then childish then serious

  15. Zendaya’s facial expressions were the worst, but other than that, this is definitely one of the best marvel movies in a while!

  16. Can you make it even more obvious that Mysterio is the villain without directly telling you that he is the villain? I doubt it.

  17. Ign: talking more about Mysterio would be a spoiler for the movie
    Also Ign: Mysterio, Spiderman's Antagonist tests his mind in ways we haven't seen before
    Me: -_-

  18. I just want to say Jake Gyllenhaal, I forgive you for "the prince of Persia" after watching this film.

  19. I let my lady discover Mysterio as a villain for herself when we watched the movie she was shocked and we both had a great time, excellent movie.

  20. Hard to watch a movie where you who the bad guy is, but they still try to pretend hes not a bad guy….
