Brief Synopsis – Peter Parker must work with a superhero from a different Earth by fighting off villains known as Elementals while he is on a school trip to Europe.

My Take on it – Another great addition to the series as it adds so much more to the story of Peter Parker and how he grows as a superhero.

The film is able to throw so many things at the character and audience that makes one question what is reality and what is just an illusion.

The fact that Peter is also trying to figure out how to deal with the events and aftermath of Avengers: Endgame (2018) adds a whole new level to the storyline because we get to see things play out so well.

The film also manages to reference the 5 year blip which also enhances things even more along the way.

The way that they have Peter deal with lots of emotional issues once again helps things works on numerous levels because we get to see the way that a teenager can grow as the story moves along.

The action scenes are great and they show how special effects can enhance a film and the plot itself.

Jake Gyllenhaal is great as Quentin Beck and really shows his acting range with this character as things are constantly in motion.

I was able to appreciate this film and it’s story even more on this viewing and knowing how it connects to both the previous film as well as with the next film makes it even more powerful to watch.

Highly Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – According to storyboard artist Jeffrey Henderson, Mysterio was supposed to be one of the villains in Sam Raimi’s canceled “Spider-Man 4”. He was to be played by cult icon Bruce Campbell, a childhood friend and longtime collaborator of Raimi’s, who had made cameos in all three Spider-Man films. (From IMDB)

Rating – Oscar Worthy (9/10) (upgrade from original review)
