Review:

Compared to Far From Home, this movie is a masterpiece: there is a lot less Zendaya, the story is streamlined, and the pacing is much better. I was looking forward to seeing how they continued after such a game changing event as Spider-Man's identity being revealed, but what they did was ultimately disappointing and leaves a lot of logistical plot holes (especially the ending). The multi-verse stuff was interesting, but I wish we spent more time with the "visitors", especially since this movie kind of serves as an epilogue to the Rami and Webb series. I guess I won't spoil too much (although I feel like everyone knew all the "surprises" before the film ever even came out), but I was happy with all of their acting, even ones that I really didn't care for the first time around. I did like that since this movie had so much more to do, we didn't have to spend so much time with stupid little side stories and we got a lot less MJ than the last film. Zendaya s still easily the worst part of the movie (of the entire series, really), but she's in it a lot less, so we don't have to put up with as much of her terrible acting as before. The ending is a big issue, as it opens up a whole bunch of logistical issues and I'm sure the nest Spider-Man movie is just going to ignore them and move on. I see a lot of other reviews talking about there being a lot of twists and turns, but I found this very predictable; all of the excitement came from the action and the characters, not the actual plot. Jon Watts does a terrible job again, giving us the most boring cinematography and there is a lot of weak CGI. As a whole, this is a great super hero movie (so long as you've seen the other MCU Spider-Man films), but the film making is kind of bland.
