Tom Holland returns as teenager Peter Parker (aka, Spider-Man) in this 23rd movie set in the MARVEL Universe. Dealing with the aftermath of the events in THE AVENGERS: ENDGAME, Peter Park needs to get away and reflect on events. A class trip to Europe seems to provide the perfect solution. Also, Peter is interested in M.J. (Zendaya), but another student, Brad Davis (Remy His) competes for M.J.’s affection.

Of course, this wouldn’t be a MARVEL movie without some cool battle scenes with Bad Guys–in this case powerful Elementals. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Quintin Beck (aka, Mysterio), who is more than he appears to be. Samuel L. Jackson returns as Nick Fury to complicate Spider-Man’s life. If you’re looking for a fun Summer movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home is your ticket to action-movie entertainment! GRADE: A-

    Not to my taste!
    I remember reading the first US comics (in German translation): Superman, Spiderman, Batman and so on – and being totally underwhelmed (I was still a teenager, so I wouldn’t have spent one single Pfennig on them.
    SF was totally different! 🙂
    I sometimes wonder how many people are necessary to get new crazy ideas for these everlasting series.
    A friend told me once that in these businesses (design and advertising included) many people take a “white line” to become more creative – though I don’t know if that’s true.

    To be honest, I have never been a Spider-Man fan, never read the comics, and have never watched any of the movies. Holland has done a good job in the last couple of Avengers movies, but…not for me.
