Peter Parker and his friends go on a summer trip to Europe. However, they will hardly be able to rest - Peter will have to agree to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of creatures that cause natural disasters and destruction throughout the continent.
Spider-Man: Far from Home
The whole film is a relentless flurry of action and adventure from the get-go, with the man himself sporting no less than four different spider suits (for all the mega fans out there). Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) gets a look-in once again after her very disappointing absence from 99.99% of ‘Endgame’, but she’s wasted on screen, serving little to no purpose. And while this film finally gives us a Peter/MJ love story, it’s all too familiar territory - not because of the characters involved but because we saw Peter pursue a crush in ‘Homecoming’. We also saw him try to balance the student/hero sides of his life then too. This is THIS Peter Parker’s fifth time on the rollercoaster. We’ve seen him and fell in love with him as the sweet, innocent kid who had greatness thrust upon him and his thirst to be a superhero. He had his shot in the ring - several times in fact - and now we need to see him grow, but they’ve just given us much of the same. We need to know where this is going, not just watch a kid play dress-ups time and time again.

Review from the comment
Marvel continues its run of wins and show no signs of slowing down. I have liked every Marvel movie at a 7 or above rating since I believe the first Avengers and Far From Home is no exception. Tom Holland and friends prove the young bucks came to take them helm and Jake Gyllenhaal is especially spot on, as normal. Its doesn't get off to the best start, but then there is a reason for that which unfolds in the middle. From there it is near great, hindered a bit by among a few things, a hallucination scene that while well done, seemed a bit borrowing from Batman Begins too much to me. All that aside, we will continue making every Marvel release at the theaters until they make something that pushes us to rethink our thinking.
