Endgame meets expectations without really ever exceeding them.
The onscreen chemistry between Holland and Zendaya is awkwardly perfect and so much fun to watch take shape.
Spider-Man: Far From Home continues the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) adventures of Peter Parker, high school science student, and of course Our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, from his first solo film, Spider-Man: Homecoming.
For the most part, the film is successful, mainly because Marvel has done a pretty masterful job of laying the groundwork during the past decade of MCU movies.
So Marvel gets Spider-Man back and they make him younger but now they get to have Spider-Man grow inside the Marvel Universe. At first I wasn’t happy that in a stand alone Spider-Man film, well as stand alone as you can have with Marvel that they put Tony Stark in this, I was a little nervous that Marvel felt they had to hedge their bets.
Featuring the directorial talents of Jon Watts, a man I’m not even going to kid on I knew about prior to this, and the refreshingly energetic acting talents of Tom Holland, this is a fantastic film packed full of action, comedy and sheer, unadulterated fun.
