I was SO reluctant to watch this movie after watching Homecoming because I really disliked Homecoming. I remember watching Homecoming and thinking that Spiderman’s been ruined for me. It seemed so childish and it seemed (to me) that anything was happening – that Peter Parker was not actually being Peter Parker. Only after watching Far from home did I realize how much of Peter Parker he was being. He was a sixteen-year old teenager living a secret life, his mentor had just died, he himself had “Blipped” (as the movie puts it) – he was being as much of himself as he could be.
Far from home takes Peter Parker and his friends on a European science trip for the summer vacation. Peter has decided to not be a superhero this summer and has an elaborate plan to win over the girl he likes and get to kiss her on top of the Eiffel Tower.
Everything about Far from home is really, really good right from Happy and Aunt May’s summer fling, to Ned and Betty’s one week romance. The movie flows so easily and flawlessly that it never seems like too long. My favourite part of the movie is easily MJ (Zendaya) running to give Peter the tightest hug ever – little victories for Peter who seems to be losing way too much in this movie. The movie has mind blowing special effects and no scene bores you, in fact no scene even lets you think for one second that Spiderman’s been ruined for you.
I liked the movie so much that even I was surprised – especially considering that I didn’t care one bit for the first movie. All in all, Spiderman: Far from home is a really good movie and if you do watch it: there are two post credits scenes (and neither should be missed because wow).
