Picking up months after the end of AVENGERS: ENDGAME, Peter Parker aka Spider-Man (Tom Holland) is ready to take a summer
vacation with his fellow science students to Europe. He wants a vacation, but Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson wants his help
to battle Elementals that Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) have been fighting for a while. However, Peter is more concerned with
getting MJ (Zendaya) as his girlfriend and forgetting the hero stuff for a while. Then he is also dealing with the loss
of his mentor Tony Stark and the complication of Happy (Jon Favreau) and his aunt May (Marisa Tomei) getting together too
SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME is a welcome sequel to SPIDER-MAN; HOMECOMING while tying in various threads from the IRON MAN
and AVENGERS movies. The first of two end credit scenes comes as a surprise as it features a surprise cameo and sets things
up for the third movie. It is a fun movie that also touches upon the role of teenagers wanting to have fun while Peter trying
to grow up to responsibility. And there are some cuts scenes (for pacing) in the trailer which will appear in a short film
on the blu-ray release. Tom Holland is great as SpiderMan even though I think Spider-Man had less comedic quips this time.
Jake Gyllenhaal is great as Mysterio (and to think he could have replaced Tobey McGuire for Spider-Man 2 over 15 years ago).
I do hope the next SPIDER-MAN movie is out within two years since I don't want Sony and Marvel to leave us hanging too
long with the mid-credits cliffhanger. I do want to see Spider-Man doing more of his friendly neighborhood web-slinger stuff
and facing other iconic comic's villains from the Spider-Man rogues gallery.
