I think you should see this movie because it is a favorite for all families and movie-goers alike. This movie ranks near the top of the Spider-Man movie pantheon only trailing 2007’s Spider-Man 3. If you have seen any Marvel movie or are just a fan of Spider-Man then this is a must see movie. This movie is the sequel to “Spider-Man: Homecoming” which came out in 2017. In this movie we see Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and his classmates go on a field trip to Europe. It’s the 23rd installment to the MCU and follows the events of Avengers: Endgame which released earlier this year. The movie begins with Nick Fury and Maria Hill in an unspecified region of Central America. This is also where moviegoers get their first taste of Mysterio and his powers related to illusions.
When Parker gets to Europe we see a monster made out of water and Mysterio comes and saves the day. The movie became the center of the entertainment world as fans flocked to see Parker’s life after losing his father figure Tony Stark in a previous movie. The acting in this movie was really good and was throughout the whole movie.
A thing that surprised a lot of people who went to see this movie is the twist in the second act of the film where Mysterio comes out to be a bad guy who hated Tony Stark. The plot twist where we see Mysterio become like the bad guy was executed very well because not a lot of people thought Mysterio was going to be the main villain in the movie.
The acting and how the characters played off of each other was very good because it seemed like they had known each other for years. When we saw the twist in the movie a lot of people were shocked to see that because through the first act of the movie we saw him as a hero where he helped Parker get rid of these monsters. When I saw the twist I was kind of surprised on how they did it because it was an illusion that took place in a bar and was executed perfectly, because it showed us what he can do with his powers.
The acting and scenes in this movie blended really well together because nothing felt rushed or felt like it didn’t really belong in the movie. If you have seen any Marvel movie before this would know that Stan Lee who is the writer of all these characters always made a cameo in the movies, but in this movie we don’t see a Stan Lee cameo which is the first time in 98 movies where we don’t see him. At the end of the movie we see two shocking credit scenes that made everyone in the theater including myself asking what is going to happen in future films, my personal rating for Spider-Man: Far From Home it would be an 8.8 out of 10.
