Non Spoiler Review.Spider-man:Far from Home

Hello Folks. I enjoyed the trailer for this movie more than the previous installment because this one seemed like it had a bit more fun associated with it. Seeing Jake Gyllenhaal as “Mysterio”, and the groove of that “old school” spider man theme absolutely sealed it for me as a must see.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie quite a bit. It did have it’s faults but nothing that took away from the storyline too, too much. This movie did blow out of the water some major theories floating around on the internet of exactly where the MCU may be going in the next ten years or so, and also served as a stark example of “life going on’ and featured some of the “real world” examples of this after “Avengers: End Game”. Let’s take a look at a few issues that I had with the movie first off.

A small one, but it was first, so I noticed it. The intro theme was different .The film gave a decent reason for it ,but I do hope it’s a “one off” as I enjoy the theme they had in place. It had become kind of iconic to me. Another small one, but understandable was the lack of Spider-Man costume. If you saw Iron Man 3 you may know what I mean a bit. This movie was a great Peter Parker story unfortunately, in places, that meant less iconic Spider-Man costume.

Although I thought there was some great character development with Peter Parker, I can’t say the same of his supporting cast of high school life. Marvel has begun moving towards a more culturally diverse cast of characters, as promised, but many of them seemed 2 dimensional to me and no effort was really made to flesh them out during the film. What was done seemed…..”hokey”. ESPECIALLY the teachers featured in the film. They were basically there for comic relief and not enough of that humour “landed” for me.  Probably the thing I liked least about this high school cast was the lack of chemistry between Tom Holland and “MJ” cast member Zendaya. I wasn’t expecting Toby Macguire /Kirsten Dunst level chemistry ,but it was pretty awkward and childish. It didn’t help that her character dripped with sarcasm and put downs at practically every turn. She doesn’t need to smile, but her character seemed permanently sad most of the movie.

There was much good in this movie though. The CGI action scenes looked fantastic, and were IMHO better than the ones in the previous installment. The movie purred along quite well thanks to some globe trotting scene transitions and a pretty well written script minus the items mentioned above. Jake Gyllenhaal has some really good chemistry with Tom Holland and I’d say the intensity of their  scenes  really shined, particularly in the last half of the film.

(l to r) Numan Acar, Tom Holland and Jacky Gyllenhaal in Columbia Pictures’ SPIDER-MAN: ™ FAR FROM HOME

Jake G, played an excellent Mysterio. Heroic when needing to be and vicious when not.If you have seen any of Jake’s previously roles, particularly Nightcrawler or Southpaw ,you’ll know what I mean. they needed a cerebral actor to play this role, and he filled the character quite nicely. Not sure what the future holds for the character but would like to see him don the globe again.

The mid and after credit scenes were there, and gave a fairly strong idea where the franchise was headed and set up a classic time in Spider-mans career. Excited to see where the MCU is headed after the reveal of what looks to be a major comic book storyline. Few other notes, include a cool cameo by a character from the spider universe of years past, and the fact that Aunt May can still rock a pair of jeans.

Spider-Man: Far from home was a solid, fun, exciting B+ outing to me that had a nice hook for the next installment and set up the next phase of the MCU relatively well. What more can you ask for in a movie?

Until next time

Scott
