SPOILER-FREE REVIEW — Spider-Man: Far From Home

SPOILER-FREE REVIEW — Spider-Man: Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home sees our friendly neighborhood web-slinger ditching his hero gig for a vacation with his high school friends. It was an unconventional start of a fairly unconventional superhero flick…and I loved it.

In his fifth turn as Spider-Man on the big screen, British human doll Tom Holland may be a little long in the tooth to play a sixteen year old high school student, but he has more than enough presence to fill up the screen, creating a Spider-Man we all care about. You’ll want him to get the girl, adorably played by the beautiful Zendaya.

She and the rest of Holland’s supporting cast are great, especially Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury and the effervescent Jake Gyllenhaal in a different, captivating turn as Mysterio. Gyllenhaal is a perfect addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, his performance is one of the strongest I’ve seen in a superhero movie. I wish I knew how to quit him.
