Spider-Man: Far From Home
Spider-Man: Far From Home’ is our first glimpse of the Marvel universe after ‘Avengers: Endgame’. There are too many twists in this film which keeps viewers glued to their seats.’Spider-Man Far From Home’ is yet another offering in the sprawling Avengers catalogue that delights and entertains, even if the setting and characters are now overly familiar. Though it is no match for Sam Raimi’s ‘Spiderman 2’, it is a solidly enjoyable Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film that works both as an epilogue to ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and a prologue to what comes next. ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ is basically EuroTrip, but with occasional diversions into superhero movie territory. In fact, it leans more heavily on innocent themes such as first love and friendship than even its predecessor, the refreshingly light ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’. But Peter lost his innocence years ago; being thrust into intergalactic adventures with the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes meant that he had to sacrifice a normal childhood, much like Harry Potter – and it is that very experience that he is trying to reclaim in this film.It’s mostly about speed of plot twists and partly about Gyllenhaal’s acting, who is probably the best inclusion in the Marvel universe since the ‘Ant-Man’.Most viewers will be carried off by the sheer frenetic pace of ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’, but some might have a tingling feeling like not everything’s gelling together as it should.From a storyline perspective, writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers — who also worked on ‘Homecoming’, ‘Ant-Man’ and the ‘Wasp’, and ‘The Lego Batman’ Movie, albeit alongside others — weave ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ with multiple entries in the MCU.Tom Holland’s ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ is made against a budget of $160 million and is projected to gross more than $350 million worldwide by the end of its first week of release. There are several movie experts who are even suggesting that the movie may earn more than $500 million in just 10 days.
