Tank phone case
I know I’m going to be in the minority on this one, but I thought Far From Home was just okay, and I left the theater quite disappointed. It’s a fun movie for the most part and Tom Holland once again does a stellar job as Peter Parker, but I was never fully engaged with the story.
It’s basically a high-school romance with some superhero stuff thrown in, and that’s fine… To an extent. A couple of scenes with Peter and MJ awkwardly flirting is endearing, but it soon becomes a little tedious – even if the actors do have strong chemistry.
Unfortunately, the action sequences are also very repetitive with continuous shots of Spidey swinging around giant CGI monsters as they destroy a few buildings. We’re told that these Elementals represent a major threat to the world, but that never comes across and the movie, in general, lacks bite. The final set piece is undeniably impressive, however.
Perhaps my biggest gripe with the film is that it feels like a step backwards for Spider-Man. Or a step to the side, at least. After having fought alongside The Avengers, stopped The Vulture and helped defeat Thanos and reverse The Snap (sorry, “The Blip”), this movie takes a still ridiculously inept Parker right back to the beginning and basically repeats his Homecoming arc to the letter.
I’m a big Spider-Man fan, I guess I’ve just had enough of Spider-Boy at this stage.
