Schools out for summer and although Spider-Man: Far From Home has been out since July 2, it just made over $1 Billion and it's well worth a visit if you haven't seen it yet. Jon Watts takes on the directing duties again after his 2017's Homecoming. In another world he could have been Spider-Man himself, but Tom Holland is in the suit again, and wanting to have a summer off after the events of Avengers: Endgame. We know Tony Stark is dead and Jon Favreau's Happy tells Peter that Nick Fury needs him to step up to The Avengers plate. But Peter is packing for a school trip to Europe and he ignores the phone. That'll come back and bite him. Samuel L. Jackson's Fury wants Peter to be worthy of the trust Tony Stark had in him. Not a great move to ghost him then.

He doesn't even take the suit. So intent is he on having a great holiday with BFF Jacob Batalon's Ned, and his plan to tell MJ his real feelings. Zendaya's MJ seems too cool for Peter to be honest. But Tom Holland is puppy like in his teenage enthusiasm for her. And why wouldn't he be, he's Spider-Man, but cannot tell her. But MJ has another suitor in the form of Brad, played by Remy Hii. He's like the hot Asian Robert Pattinson. Give that man the lead in his own film. Very handsome and aged 5 years when he went away with the Thanos click, but still 16 so he cannot drink!

While Peter and pals fly to Venice, the Earth has been attacked by The Elementals. With Earth and Air's fury devastating parts of the world. Nick Fury could have used Peter's help but luckily a new superhero was in town. With the boffin like name of Quentin Beck he comes from the same dimension as The Elementals. But he is the only one left from his race as he describes how they came to exist. Jake Gyllenhaal looks particularly hot as Quentin, although he does wear a snow globe style helmet that detracts from the suited and booted buffed bod. Jake definitely fits in to the Marvel world. He's having a massive trip.

In Venice another Elemental appears, Water picks the right place to cause havoc among the beautiful canals, with Quentin trying to save the city, and Peter helping this time. Nicknamed Mysterio by the Italian media, that night when Peter is brought to Nick Fury he is introduced to Quentin. But Peter wants to be the neighbourhood Spider-Man, not Iron Man's replacement. He cannot go to Prague to battle Fire with Quentin, because that's where the final show is planned by the Elementals. But Peter's going to Paris as he has his own show planned at the Eiffel Tower with MJ. Or maybe not.

On the way to Prague and into Peter's mix of raging 16 year old hormones, and the grief he feels over his mentor Tony Stark, he receives a gift from beyond. Tony's E.D.I.T.H. glasses. Quite an incredible gift as they allow Peter total control of Stark's Empire. And one he feels compelled to use against Brad, who just caught him with his pants down. Until he realises what he has done and calls off the strike. Too late. Maybe Peter is not ready for so much power in his 16 year old hands? And just maybe there is someone more worthy of control of Stark Enterprises? Or maybe his Peter Tingle that Marisa Tomei's hot Aunt May calls his spider-sense, is a little off at the moment.

Jon Watts keeps the plates spinning in Far From Home with everyone getting their moment in the sun with the comedy and action, as we jaunt around Europe. Run at warp speed with the ethnically diverse cast having a blast. I especially loved the story line with Aunt May and Jon Favreau's Happy. And the terrific CGI is working overtime into the spider-verse, with mind bending special effects, and even MJ gets to swing. But the end credits set up a very different future for Spider-Man. Until then it's 129 minutes of mayhem and action that goes past in a flash.

And all the time Nick Fury is having a blast on his vacation!
