There are worse ways to spend two hours than watching Spider-Man save the world again. At the very least, Spider-Man: Far From Home provides precisely the sort of eye-popping escapism that’s endemic to summer movies. We enter the latest chapter in the Marvel-verse as Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and his adolescent peers (including Jacob Batalon as a sassy/wise sidekick and Zendaya as Peter’s love interest MJ) are preparing for a transoceanic class trip, a setup that provides plenty of opportunities for the most spectacularly scenic devastation this side of the Notre Dame fire. Director Jon Watts checks all the boxes: tons of stuff blows up and monsters made of towering infernos and Poseidon-worthy water spouts threaten our teen hero. There’s a twist involving Mysterio (Jake Gyllanhaal) that’s entertaining even though you’ll totally see it coming. There’s a grand finale smackdown when evil is trounced, but not completely enough to rule out a sequel. The best part of Far From Home is Samuel L. Jackson, whose Nick Fury single-handedly elevates the movie from a C to a B+. And for those mourning the loss of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in Avengers: Endgame, know that he is not wholly gone and neither are his special superpower spectacles.
