Don’t take the title as a spoiler, because Spider-Man: Far from Home is another sequel to the Avengers franchise, with mid and end credits scenes suggesting that more sequels will follow. As an aftermath of the Endgame episode, this film was able to assert its own qualities as an enjoyable and exciting movie, unaffected by how Avengers Infinity War and Endgame raised the bar as far as superhero action flicks are concerned.
Tom Holland’s Peter Parker Characterization is Still the Best
Tom Holland proves again that he is a better Peter Parker than Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield . Holland exudes the right blend of a secretly grieving and confused teenager portrayal, without projecting a sense of losing purpose in life.
A bit nerdy and but not a naive teenager who foregoes the chance of getting a call from S.H.I.E.L.D. — preferring instead to join the Europe field trip organized by his school. As if he has not been somewhere else more exciting when assuming his superhero persona.
Yet that is exactly what makes Tom Holland’s Spider-Man characterization more adorable than that of Toby Maguire’s Peter Parker who projects a sense of depression for not knowing what he wants in life.
Jake Gyllenhaal. Still Capable of Confusing People if His Character is Good or Bad
Another great role characterization is from Jake Gyllenhaal. Although it has been no secret that Gyllenhaal will be taking on the anti-hero role, the actor played his Quentin Beck / Mysterio roles with his usual flare for mixing good and bad vibes that would make situations complicated. In the Spider-Man movie, he could make a viewer wish the anti-hero stance will still be reversed. After, all even Peter Parker was so taken with Gyllenhaal’s Beck, he thought the man was the perfect hero figure who can replace Tony Stark.
Overall Impression After Watching the Movie
Spider-Man: Far from Home, with all its funny sides, is still serious about power that comes with great responsibility, and of having the courage and confidence to face one’s destiny.
Special effects and CGI are stunning, but take precautions if you are bringing along younger viewers. The violent scenes are so brilliantly delivered via 3D, the intensity of the scenes and special effects make them seem too real for young minds to handle. Still, there are amusing scenes to help kids recover from awry things that have been happening on Earth and to Peter Parker.
Violent scenes transpire as video game-like, which is a bit dizzying but probably unnoticeable for teeangers who are familiar with that kind of presentation. Anyway, film director Jon Watts was careful enough not to overdo them. Screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers deserve praise for writing a plot and a set of dialogues that can hold the audience’s attention throughout the length of the movie.
Spider-Man: Far from Home is definitely a great and enjoyable follow-through for the Avengers’ saga. .
