Review of Spiderman: Far From Home by Raheem Ahmad

Spiderman: Far From Home is something that excites me because it’s an action movie with an interesting plot. The movie features Tom Holland as Spiderman. Tom Holland is a great actor! I say he’s the best Spiderman actor so far. Tom Holland looks like he’s the appropriate age for Spiderman and Peter Parker. Spiderman gets his powers as a teenager, so it’d be best if we get to see a young guy who takes the role. Sure, Toby Maguire was in high school during the 2000s as Spiderman, but Tom Holland looks perfect to play a high school student/superhero. Another reason why Tom Holland is the perfect Spiderman is because Peter Parker is a bit goofy and has a sense of humor. The 2000s movies of Spiderman overdid it and made it melodramatic. On the other hand, Tom Holland knows what he’s doing. Back to the movie, the film takes place in Ixtenco where Nick Fury and Maria Hill fight Earth Elemental. It’s nice how they added these two characters in the movie. I’ve liked S.H.I.E.L.D throughout watching these superhero movies because it was another thing you can worry and pay attention about. Fury calls Peter Parker who is in Europe with his friends. Peter ignores the call. This scene where Parker ignores Fury’s calls reminds me of this show that used to air called: Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. That was the first Avengers series I watched. In the show, Nick Fury (and Later Maria Hill) try to convince some of the Avengers to become a part of S.H.I.E.L.D. S.H.I.E.L.D would call, follow, and even try to destroy the Avengers to try and make them registered for S.H.I.E.L.D. When Fury calls Parker it reminds me of how the Avengers ignored S.H.I.E.L.D and when Parker receives  the calls, he ignores it. Parker is still upset about Iron Man's death. Iron Man helped him and even let him join the Avengers which is why he is distraught about his death. Another fact about the movie is, it follows the events of Avengers: Endgame and focuses on Spiderman/Peter Parker. Compared to other marvel movies, Spiderman’s movies are the best. Here are the other movies; Thor: The Dark World, the tone was off and the villain wasn’t at all remarkable (villain was the Dark Elf). Iron Man 2, the villains were let-down and the movie wasn’t as good as the first one. Avengers: Age of Ultron; the characters and plot connections makes it a bit messy at times. The Incredible Hulk; the movie didn’t feel like a MCU movie anymore and Hulk doesn’t even remember what happens to his girlfriend. And finally, Captain America: The First Avenger; the movie has a nice start but the second half doesn’t live up the first. On the other hand, Spiderman Far From Home does a great job as a sequel to Homecoming as well as events that follow Avengers: Engame. Far From Home also includes one of the best MCU credits scenes.
