PHOENIX – It’s time to swing over to review, Spider-Man: Far From Home, for this week’s CWhat’s Screening with J Russell.
Peter Parker and the crew take a trip to Italy for school after the events of Avengers: Endgame. When Parker arrives, the Avengers’ Nick Fury and Mysterio need Spiderman’s help with a new threat.
In the comics, Mysterio is one the best villains Spiderman could face because he’s a failed actor who practices in special effects. The makers of the film took advantage of the top-notch graphics throughout the movie.
Spidey has to choose between being a teenager or becoming the new Ironman. That’s always been Peter’s dilemma, but this movie makes the risk even higher. With no Captain Marvel or Thor around, the web-slinger is their only hope.
The death of Iron Man is still fresh in the boy’s mind and the tributes the film pays toward Robert Downey Jr’s character almost made me shed a tear. Viewers will feel the conflict within Parker wanting to please both parties.
After Avengers: Endgame, the big question for moviegoers was “would the Marvel cinematic universe keep the same dynamic energy?” I say yes! The first half of the movie was slow and scenes could have been taken out; however, the second half was what will have fans at the edge of their seat.
There are two end scene credits and your mind will be blown!
The Spiderman franchise drops a bomb that they never have before and I’m still recovering!
I give this movie four spider monkeys out of five.
Spider-Man: Far From Home, comes out Tuesday, July 2nd.
