First reviews of Spider-Man: Far From Home are in, and they’re overwhelming
Fear not, true-believers! The MCU’s friendly neighbourhood web head has swung into theatres for a select few, and he’s absolutely nailed the landing.
Spider-Man: Far From Home isn’t actually in cinemas until Thursday July 4 in Dubai, and we’re a while away from official reviews landing. However, people who went to early screenings have been permitted to put their thoughts on social media, and as a result Twitter is awash with people lining up to praise Peter Parker’s latest outing.
These are literally just 280-character reviews, so don’t expect too much in-depth analysis. Still, first thoughts are always welcome.
#SpiderMan #FarFromHome is an absolute home run. It’s SO much fun. It’s huge in itself and for the future of the MCU in the most surprising ways. Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, just a lethal, awesome combo!!
I cannot wait to see this movie again. And again. pic.twitter.com/0hYJvKkdjN— Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) June 19, 2019
#SpiderManFarFromHome had the difficult task of following two epic Avengers movies AND Spider-Verse and succeeds by telling a smaller, classical story about Peter Parker caught be-tween what he wants and what responsibility demands. Pure cat(spider)nip for Spidey fans like me. pic.twitter.com/G2a4p6YhAr— Matt Singer (@mattsinger) June 19, 2019
Special praise seemed to be reserved for Jake Gyllenhaal, who takes on the role of Mysterio. There are plenty of tweets about him having lots of fun with the casting…
I had a big dumb smile on my face through all of #SpiderManFarFromHome. It makes for a lovely companion piece to Endgame, but it's also a top-notch Peter story.
Oh, and Jake Gyllenhaal is clearly having the time of his LIFE.— Devan Coggan (@devancoggan) June 19, 2019
Oh, and apparently it’s a film you’ll want to see at least twice, or even three times.
#FarFromHome non spoiler thoughts: most comic booky movie marvel has put out. Second and third acts are outstanding. The two post credit sequences are going to stick in my brain for a L O N G time. I cannot wait to see this movie at least three more times.— Preeti Chhibber @ ALA (@runwithskizzers) June 19, 2019
It’s actually pretty hard to find anyone criticising the film. Still, there were a few that weren’t as impressed…
#SpiderManFarFromHome: B-/C+. If you loved the teen-centric stuff in Homecoming, there's more where that came from. Some of the comedy falls flat, but this film has A LOT go-ing on – ultimately beneficial because it mostly distracts from stuff that doesn't land quite as well. pic.twitter.com/1wVMyT5bv9— Ben Pearson (@benpears) June 19, 2019
