Spider-Man: Far From Home recently screened for an audience of critics and the reactions of the people the people who were lucky enough to attend have shared their reactions on Twitter and as you’ll see the movie is getting nothing but glowing love.
I never doubted that the movie wouldn’t be good. I just wondered how it would stack up to films like Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. Well, from the sound of it the movie is a jaw-dropped spectacle that is going to blow Marvel fans away!
The reactions below are sure to get you even more pumped up to see the movie! Spider-Man: Far From Home sounds like it’s going to be something special and I can’t wait to see it for myself!
Absolutely loved SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME. I’m a huge Mysterio fan and Gyllenhaal nails him. Also the movie is very clever (and funny) how it handles the fallout post ENDGAME in explaining how this world works now.— Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) June 19, 2019
And obviously with Mysterio involved, there are some pretty bizarre scenes. Honestly I always kind of assumed a Mysterio movie wasn’t really possible, but Jon Watts and company pulled it off.— Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) June 19, 2019
Oh and for me SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME had three legit “holy shit” shocking moments.— Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) June 19, 2019
#SpiderManFarFromHome is funny, exciting, romantic, goofy & follows HOMECOMING in being this brilliant ground-level look at Spidey's world & how the events of #AvengersEndgame impacted everyday life. Lots of twists & turns, plus some adorable summer romances, too. I'm a big fan pic.twitter.com/NUX0f8YFM0— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) June 19, 2019
Everyone in the film shines, but the chemistry between Peter and MJ is undeniable & honestly tops the other versions we've seen of this friendship. Their journey in this film is so rewarding & cute & surprising & I adore them. You will too.— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) June 19, 2019
Also, yes, of course stay for the credits. And while I will say nothing of what you will see, staying for the credits has never been as important & eventful as it is for this particular film. So don't go anywhere!— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) June 19, 2019
#SpiderManFarFromHome: B-/C+. If you loved the teen-centric stuff in Homecoming, there's more where that came from. Some of the comedy falls flat, but this film has A LOT going on – ultimately beneficial because it mostly distracts from stuff that doesn't land quite as well. pic.twitter.com/1wVMyT5bv9— Ben Pearson (@benpears) June 19, 2019
These #SpiderMan movies have proven to be fascinating explorations of Tony Stark's legacy, complicating it in ways I didn't expect. That's another thing about this movie: it's doing an elaborate dance of leaning into and subverting expectations. V curious how people will react. pic.twitter.com/1eGTHPTZVb— Ben Pearson (@benpears) June 19, 2019
#SpiderManFarFromHome had the difficult task of following two epic Avengers movies AND Spider-Verse and succeeds by telling a smaller, classical story about Peter Parker caught between what he wants and what responsibility demands. Pure cat(spider)nip for Spidey fans like me. pic.twitter.com/G2a4p6YhAr— Matt Singer (@mattsinger) June 19, 2019
#SpiderMan #FarFromHome is an absolute home run. It’s SO much fun. It’s huge in itself and for the future of the MCU in the most surprising ways. Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, just a lethal, awesome combo!!— Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) June 19, 2019
I cannot wait to see this movie again. And again. pic.twitter.com/0hYJvKkdjN
FAR FROM HOME has dethroned Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 & is now favorite Spider-Man film.— Kevin McCarthy (@KevinMcCarthyTV) June 19, 2019
What’s insane is that I can’t even tell u why I’m so in love with this film because it would be a spoiler.
Gyllenhaal is incredible. Holland re-confirms as the best Spidey to date. Amazing. pic.twitter.com/pbynxYIEyQ
#FarFromHome non spoiler thoughts: most comic booky movie marvel has put out. Second and third acts are outstanding. The two post credit sequences are going to stick in my brain for a L O N G time. I cannot wait to see this movie at least three more times.— Preeti Chhibber (@runwithskizzers) June 19, 2019
#SpiderManFarFromHome is the coda we needed after Endgame, a glimpse of how the world looks now that the dust has settled. Could maybe have gone a bit harder on P's emotional arc, but bursting with warmth and humor and awkward teen romance. 💕 Also: Jake G = perfect casting.— Angie J. Han (@ajhan) June 19, 2019
Spider-Man: Far from Home is an extremely fun, cleverly executed, and frequently hilarious culmination of the MCU’s wall-crawler’s journey so far. Some very sweet moments, sly commentary and deft action set-pieces throughout #SpiderManFarFromHome pic.twitter.com/5sAmxh4E3p— Jim Vejvoda (@JimVejvoda) June 19, 2019
I liked it a tad more than Spider-Man: Homecoming, which I loved. Far From Home is a great afterword for Endgame, closing out Marvel Phase 3 with a bang while also setting up new challenges and exciting stuff ahead. That's all I'm gonna say until my review runs.— Jim Vejvoda (@JimVejvoda) June 19, 2019
I’ve been reading Spider-Man comics non-stop since 1995, so I always breath a massive sigh of relief when his movies are good. I haven’t decided if Far From Home is better than Spider-Verse yet, but it’s certainly the best live action outing. #SpiderManFarFromHome pic.twitter.com/nqI4W5TKqx— Sean Keane (@SpectacularSean) June 19, 2019
#Spiderman #FarFromHome is SUCH a good movie! Jake Gyllenhaal suits up & completely embraces his role in its entirety & he’s clearly having a blast. This is such a refreshing film after the heaviness of #EndGame. The post-credit scenes are a MUST WATCH & will blow your dang mind! pic.twitter.com/wcTh9iHaYq— Maude Garrett (@maudegarrett) June 19, 2019
My thoughts on SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME:— Jake Hamilton (@JakesTakes) June 19, 2019
A movie that starts out good and turns great with every minute that passes — leading to one of the best climaxes of any solo Marvel movie.
Tom Holland is, and will forever be, the greatest Spider-Man ever.
This movie is a MUST SEE. pic.twitter.com/lTGf4F5ftq
Spider-Man: Far From Home made me smile from start to finish. Its got huge reveals and exciting set pieces but the way it builds off Endgame to to dive deeper into Peter’s emotions is really what make it soar. Mysterio also rules. I can’t wait to see it again. pic.twitter.com/FvP3B53MOX— Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) June 19, 2019
#SpiderManFarFromHome: far superior to its predecessor & really delightful, w/a terrific theme of trust well-threaded throughout. Could say more, but it's spoiler-laden, full of fun secrets, so be careful who you follow and what they say. Jake G is great #SpiderMan #FarFromHome— Rodrigo Perez 📽🎞📺 (@YrOnlyHope) June 19, 2019
Didn’t LOVE #SpiderManFarFromHome as much as Homecoming but it’s still a rad take on bearing the weight of great expectations and a fun ode to teen romance. Tom Holland continues to be amazing, Zendaya’s MJ is just as cool as Shuri and Jake G’s an inspired choice for Mysterio. pic.twitter.com/nnu7BPjcFO— Brian Truitt (@briantruitt) June 19, 2019
