It's been a long time coming but we finally got Mysterio on the big screen. Who better to face one of the best villains than the best version of Spider-Man we've had yet?

The film follows Peter Parker as he goes on a school trip to Europe. In his personal life, he's dealing with several crises. First, he's wanting to express his feelings to Michelle in a romantic way. Second, he's trying to come to grips with his mentor Tony Stark's death. Third, he's torn between being a hero and being normal. Lastly, he's also found out that his Aunt May and Happy are in the early stages of a relationship. On top of all this, he's being tasked by Nick Fury to join forces with the mysterious Quentin Beck to defeat The Elementals, beings from the deep recesses of space. But, is Beck who he claims to be?

I love how the writers (who are the same writers from Homecoming) continue to keep the Spider-Man films personal and relatable in many ways. Peter's not a public figure like Tony Stark or a war hero like Steve Rogers. He's just a kid who's just trying to find his place in the world. He has a huge burden on his shoulders that he faces every day. Does he give up being a hero with the hope that someone will take on the responsibility, or does he do what he knows is right and take a stand against corruption?

So, we all know how great Tom Holland is. I've bragged on him a couple times before. So, let's switch gears and talk about Jake Gyllenhaal's role as Mysterio. Quentin Beck is first and foremost a liar. He's a master manipulator who acts like your best buddy until he gets the opportunity to take what he wants. Jake perfectly captured Beck's subtle mannerisms and his slick illusions. In many ways, Jake made the audience trust Beck and actually believe he was a good guy. I commend him on his superb performance.

Definitely stick around through the credits. The first credit scene drops a huge bomb on Spidey's life and gives us a nice sense of nostalgia at the same time. The second credit scene is vital to the future of the MCU. Keep this in mind: the film is all about illusion, so why should the end credits be any different?

In conclusion, I'm constantly impressed with how Marvel delivers in each film. Sure, there were a few issues occasionally, but that's nothing considering we now have 23 excellent films and the promise of even more on the way. We don't know for sure what's next, but we should know at least a bit more in a month or two. For now, we'll continue enjoying what we already have. I give Spider-Man: Far From Home a perfect 4 out of 4.
