Spider-Man: Far from Home ★★

Follows a standard for the MCU which usually offers serviceable action with one standout, visually arresting scene, see also:

Ant-Man and Ant-man 2's going subatomic scenes, Captain Marvel's excellent memory invasion scene, Doctor Strange's "open your mind" scene, and here it's Mysterio's nightmarish illusion scene.

What bothers me more with this one is it's constant undercutting of it's own dramatic tension with jokes that are more often than not cringy and certainly never funny.

Peter insists that he's just your friendly neighbourhood Spider-man but his Iron-Man suit, world-hopping misadventures, and lack of any attachment to New York city suggest otherwise. He's never had less of an identity.
