Spider-Man’s adventures after the events of Avengers: Endgame in Europe. Having a $160 million budget, this movie successfully made over one billion dollars at the box office. Even being successful in making back it’s budget many times, the reviews and ratings have received a mixed reaction. Finalising this paragraph here is my honest opinion about the movie.
Spider-Man: Far Away From Home Trivia:
- The film takes place 8 months after the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019).
- This is the first Marvel-Avengers crossover movie without a cameo by Stan Lee, co-creator of the MCU.
- It was reported that Matt Damon turned down the villain role.
- Sony and Marvel intend to make a third movie in 2021.
A reboot after a reboot, it seems this movie is designed more for a younger audience. I actually prefer the previous two Spider-Man franchises than this one. For example, this sequel was significantly worse than Spider-Man: Homecoming in the current Marvel Universe. I do not understand how people have rated this movie ten out of ten. Setting a new low standard after the probably best Marvel superhero movie (Endgame) the awkward teen movie failed in acting performance and gave us lame jokes.
As I do not feel that this movie was that memorable, I have to say some good things about it. Even though the story was weak and very predictable, visually the cinematography and CGI held up in the climactic scenes. Since watching this I have been agreeing with Martin Scorsese thoughts on Marvel movies more and more. I have been watching since the start of Ironman (2008) and over the years Marvel has used the same structure over the years to start lacking originality.
