Owen Gleiberman
Variety
"[It proves] the MCU can fly after the 'Avengers'."  POS
United StatesUnited States M
Todd McCarthy
The Hollywood Reporter
"The young cast (...) is plenty appealing as well as funny (...) Without a proper, full-on villain, as well as an adequate substitute for Robert Downey Jr (...) this comes off as a less-than-glittering star in the Marvel firmament"  NEU

Jim Vejvoda
IGN
"[It] is great fun, filled with heart, humor and lots of cool stuff for fans to geek out over."  POS
United StatesUnited States M
David Ehrlich
IndieWire
"Fans might be appeased (...) but this is still a maddening failure when compared to the remarkable artistry of 'Into the Spider-Verse' or the raw pathos of Sam Raimi’s 'Spider-Man 2'."  NEU

A. O. Scott
The New York Times
"The freshest parts of the story revisit some of the character’s longest-standing issues, as Peter struggles with the competing demands of normal adolescence and superheroism"  POS

Tasha Robinson
The Verge
"It’s an out-and-out triumph, an adrenaline blast of pure action and emotion that lives up to its predecessors and ably forwards the MCU story in memorable and even touching ways."  POS
United StatesUnited States M
Jesse Hassenger
AV Club
"[Watts] smoothly steers some of that heavy MCU world-building back into goofy high-school comedy, and his cast is so winning that the movie’s interpersonal surprises are often more exciting than its big plot twists."  POS

Darren Franich
Entertainment Weekly
"I wound up liking 'Far From Home' more than any Spider-Man film this decade."  POS

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone
"There’s no contrived digital sleight-of-hand in 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' that can match what Holland does: He makes the MCU feel new again (…) Rating: ★★★½ (out of 5)"  POS

Johnny Oleksinski
New York Post
"[It] fall short of its awesome predecessor (...) That said, Holland is still far-and-away the best Marvel casting since Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man."  NEU

"[It] can’t quite match the inspired heights of its predecessor (...) 'Far From Home' is a lot of fun (...) [It] works best as a high school comedy (…) Rating: ★★½ (out of 4)"  NEU

Alonso Duralde
The Wrap
"This latest Spidey series continues to charm (...) [It] becomes an entertaining example of what we used to call 'a summer movie'."  POS

"It sets the stage perfectly (...) for whatever Marvel has in store for us next."  POS

Ben Travis
Empire
"It’s not quite the home-run of 'Homecoming', but 'Far From Home' isn’t far from matching it, with heaps of humour, energetic action, and the answers 'Endgame' left you craving.(…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Peter Bradshaw
The Guardian
"[It] lacks Marvel sparkle (...) But Tom Holland is still very winning as Spidey (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  NEU

Tim Grierson
Screendaily
"[It] is adequately rousing and jokey, but too often it has the feel of a transitional chapter (...) As a result, 'Far From Home' is more of a placeholder than an action spectacular"  NEU

Clarisse Loughrey
The Independent
"It feels comfortably like the end of a chapter, the beginning of a new one, an epilogue, and a palate cleanser all at once. It also works perfectly well as a film about Spider-Man (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Robbie Collin
Telegraph
"A breezy superhero holiday snap (...) Holland’s take on the Spider-Man character remains an appealing mix of cocky, earnest and awkward (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  POS
United KingdomUnited Kingdom M
Nicholas Barber
BBC
"This is the lightest and silliest of Marvel’s films, which is what makes it so enjoyable, but also, ultimately, what makes it so forgettable (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  NEU

Chris Hunneysett
Mirror
"While the film wears the frothy air of an espionage caper, the tone disguises some very serious thoughts about fake news and multi-media manipulation (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Matthew Norman
London Evening Standard
"[It] isn’t so bad it’s good. It is so terrible, it’s brilliant (...) The revelation here is Gyllenhaal (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Sandra Hall
The Age
"[The] formula, with its crafty blend of high-school comedy and top-of-the-range spectacle, overlaid with a jaunty, tongue-in-cheek tone, has worked.(…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

"More than enough charm and wit to get away with its structural shortcomings (...) [It] seems pretty tame, and safe (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  NEU

"It’s flat, low-key and the showdown is a mess (...) The lack of narrative sophistication is often offset by its splendid cast (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  NEU

"This is pretty much a perfect Peter Parker pic. It's certainly one of the most enjoyable solo superhero adventures I've seen in years, and at just over two hours it rattles along at a nice pace (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS
