Spiderman: Far From Home is a delightful superhero triumph movie
The film is the seventh live-action solo-outing of Spider-man and the second one featuring Tom Holland's Marvel Cinematic Universe version.
Co-produced by Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios, the film stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/ Spider-Man, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau and J. B. Smoove.
The story revolves around the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.
Following its premier in Hollywood initial reactions and reviews are coming in:
“Spider-Man: Far From Home is the latest Iron Man movie”, The New York Times’ A.O. Scott take on the film.
Time Magazine’s Stephanie Zacharek praises the film writing that, “Spider-Man: Far from Home is breezy and enjoyable, focusing on all that’s most appealing about Peter Parker and his web-slinging alter ego Spider-Man: Chiefly, the fact that he’s not yet out of his teens but has been vested with superpowers that he can’t fully control.”
“What does it feel like to watch a Marvel film in a post-Avengers world? Is there anything at stake left?” wrote Variety‘s Owen Gleiberman in his review. “It has to do with that mysterious, hard-to-bottle chemistry of audience and superhero. The flow of actor, character, mythology, and FX concept as they merge and navigate a universe of eye-widening hermetic excitement.”
Mara Reinstein from US Weekly writes, “Witnessing authentic teen angst in a big-budget superhero flick is a flat-out astonishment,” adding “Perhaps more surprising is that our hero doesn’t have to rely on his superpowers to get the job done. Our Peter Parker didn’t age during his five years in the ether, but he matured. He makes forehead-smacking mistakes, only to use his intelligence and reason i.e., not the magic webs — to battle his way out of trouble.”
