Variety, in its review, reckons the movie is "more urgent than the last one (and should be even bigger at the box office), with a richer sense of malevolence, and Holland’s kid-in-over-his-head hero — awkward and ingenuous, romantic and quicksilver — is alive inside in a way that Andrew Garfield’s Peter never was."

Den of Geek thinks that Far From Home is "way more than an Endgame epilogue or a Phase Three coda" believing it's a "lively adventure reminiscent of what superhero movies looked like before expanded universes were even a thing."
