Spider-Man: Far From Home - Review

Spider-Man: Far From Home Review (SPOILERS)

No Caption Provided

Story

First off let's talk about the story. The story was pretty much what everyone expected, there was nothing that we didn't know excluding Mysterio's Backstory, and the plot twist with him being a villain (which a lot of people expected anyway). The story is based around Peter stepping up and being able to fill Tony's Shoes, and as well as that how Peter deals with the Superhero / Real Life balance. A lot of the stuff with Peter's high school and personal life you might find boring, but at the end of the day it's essential to the story, and it's nothing intolerable.

Action

A definite upgrade from Homecoming, the action was amazing, especially with Mysterio. The first Mysterio vs Spider-Man fight was spectacular, as we get our first clear scope of Mysterio's Power and Strategic Ability, a really cool scene. The final battle is also really good, Spider-Man is a lot more competent than the previous films, and a lot of that is due to his Spidey-Sense (or "Peter Tingle") being sharper than it had been before, or sharper than we had seen it at least.

Overall, if you were disappointed with Homecoming's Action, you won't be disappointed here.

CGI / Designs

CGI was all good, nothing that I noticed that was obviously bad, all the Elementals looked clean, Mysterio's Illusions had a cool Doctor Strange Vibe and Spider-Man's Suits looked a lot more clean and substantial compared to Homecoming where the suit often looked like a slightly unfinished CGI "mess".

Mysterio's Suit and Spider-Man's "Night Monkey"suit looked really good, and Beck's Fish Bowl fit the costume well.

Characters

Mysterio was by far my favorite character in the movie and indeed my favorite part of the film. I liked how they adapted the character's backstory to make him more linked with the MCU.

In short, Tony Stark took credit for Beck's Illusion Tech as we saw in Civil War, and didn't give it the respect he deserved, while Quentin thought it to be a ground breaking invention. That pretty much drives Beck throughout the film, to achieve his goal of becoming a greater hero than Stark ever was. And he does this by creating illusions of him single handedly taking out Avengers Level Threats, overall he was a cool character with good goals and motivations.

I'm not going to talk about Peter, because I feel I pretty much summed him and his arc up in the Story Section.

There was no Stan Lee Cameo, but I was surprised by a familiar face returning to play the same character again. JK Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson in the Mid Credit Scene after Mysterio villainizes Spider-Man using an Illusion.

FEATS

Mysterio was by far the most OP character in the film, and I still have doubts that he is actually dead, but rather it was part of his plan. Beck was a master strategist and tactician, and given he has the means to take down his opponent, he's a force to be reckoned with.

Spider-Man became way more competent, taking down Stark Drones, and dodging automatic gunfire from dozens of them without even seeing the drones, simply amazing.

Elementals weren't a big part of the film, and don't have much feats anyway, I doubt you'll be seeing them in the battle forums much.

Rating: Overall, I give the film a Solid 8.5/10
