First of all…go see this movie.
Now that that’s out the way, FFH delivers in so many more ways than just action alone. The unfolding story is pretty much exactly what you would expect if you’re a fan of comics (or animated series) and know the characters enough. If you’re just a fan of the film series then you’re still in for a treat.
The onscreen chemistry between Holland and Zendaya is awkwardly perfect and so much fun to watch take shape. The unnerving character within Parker is deeply felt from the start of the film and almost never lets up until the movie’s end. As for the action, it’s ever-present and amazing as Peter and the new hero on the scene, Mysterio (Gyllenhaal), fight to ward off elemental beings from a different universe before they destroy the earth.
With some twists and turns, FFH is a blast and though gone, Tony Stark/Iron Man is present without ever being present. There are two end credits scene, the first of which is quite the jaw-dropping eye-opener, the second being a bit comical but also pointing in a certain direction obviously to what may lie ahead.
Whether IMAX, standard, or 3D, FFH is absolutely enjoyable and a solid end to Phase 3. Get out and go see it!
