Spider-Man: Far From Home {Movie Review: Spoiler Warning}

Image result for spider man far from home

This review will be a few spoilers:  if you haven’t seen the film, don’t read this review…if you saw the film, read the review.

 

I really enjoyed the film, I like that we get to see Peter moving forward with his life, even though that he misses Tony Stark/Iron Man and confessing his feelings to Michelle “MJ”. 

 

My favorite scenes that I did not expect is Quentin Beck aka Mysterio, who is a former employee of Stark Industries…it was revealed that Beck created B.A.R.F., a prototype system that was introduced in Captain America: Civil War and another character who encountered with Obadiah Stane from the first Iron Man, comes back, he works with Beck. the visual effects were stunning, the scene where Mysterio using the illusions to trap Peter, messing with his mind. One part in the illusion scene is when a Zombie Iron Man crawling towards Peter: that scene was a surprise and shocking.

 

There were a few moments in the film, the friendship between Peter and Ned was great: hope we get to see their friendship continue in the next film. The final battle was an amazing scene. 

 

2 scenes that was a surprise and a game-changer: Peter, MJ and the whole people of New York, watches the news report that featured a doctored footage recorded by Beck, during the battle of London. but that’s not all: the video was released by the controversial news website: The Daily Bugle.Net, the one and only…J. Jonah Jameson played by J.K. Simmons. Here’s the real blockbuster: Beck reveals Spider-Man’s secret identity, it had Peter in a mind blown shock.

 

This is the first time seeing J.K. Simmons’ J. Jonah Jameson in the MCU, hope we get to see more J. Jonah Jameson.

 

Another scene is that former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury and former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill are revealed to be Skrull’ Talos and Skrull’ Soren, who has been impersonating the real Nick Fury and real Maria Hill, also it was revealed that the real Nick Fury is on ‘vacation’ on a Skrull spaceship.

 

After watching the movie. There’s a lot of questions to be answered is what will happen to Peter, now that the world knows he’s Spider-Man and whatever happened to the real Maria Hill, while the real Nick Fury is on a Skrull spaceship.

 

Could this mean that one of the characters are secretly a Skrull, but will find out in the upcoming Marvel films in the future.

Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer 2 review

This trailer review will be a mixed between spoilers and theory. If you haven’t seen Endgame, don’t read this trailer review or you have seen Endgame, read the trailer review.

 

My thoughts on the new trailer is Peter mourning for Tony Stark/Iron Man, what i like about Peter’s relationship with Stark is that he’s like a father figure/mentor, giving advice to be a hero and having responsibility, whether it’s being a man in the suit or a man without the suit. 

 

Lot of parts that I like in the trailer is Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck aka Mysterio, the costume looks awesome, just like in the comics. What interest me when Nick Fury from S.H.I.E.L.D. played by Samuel L. Jackson says: the snap tore a hole in our dimension: Thanos snapped his fingers, opened a hole, there’s a lot of questions to be answered in the film.

 

Cool shots in the trailer is the Elementals: Sandman, Hydro-Man and the Molten Man are a super-powered creatures and I do like how they mentioned Thor and Captain Marvel. 

 

My favorite moment is when Nick Fury tells Peter: are you going to step up or not. what I like about that quote by Fury, is that everything that Peter had learned/experienced in Homecoming, Infinity War and Endgame. Is that he will face new challenges between his life as Peter and Spider-Man, saving the people that he loves/cares about, save the people of New York or any other world he saves and taking responsibility. 

 

So that’s my trailer review

 

The film will be in theaters on July 2, 2019. since the film is the final installment in Marvel’s Phase 3. no official word when the third MCU Spider-Man is coming. but we’re looking forward to the film and future MCU films.
