While Tom Holland indulges in his usual penchant for dropping clanging spoilers, we're rounding up some (spoiler-free) reactions to his new movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Holland is back as Peter Parker in the closing chapter of phase three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Picking up where Avengers: Endgame left off, the story this time sends Peter and his school-friends on a vacation to Europe, where he's intercepted by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Spidey's new mission: to work with Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), who hails from the 'multiverse', to battle the deadly Elementals, ancient beings that are rampaging across the continent.

With its globe-trotting nature and expansion of Marvel mythology, this is poised to be a funny and thrilling adventure that anticipates future MCU developments to come. We've eight days to go until the release of the new Spider-Man movie, and critics are upbeat, beginning with this from Den of Geek UK.

You'll note the reference to Jake Gyllenhaal there – he's a running theme throughout most of the responses, critics such as People's Kara Warner citing him as a valuable addition to the movie.

Uproxx's Mike Ryan lauds the movie for its smooth extension of the post-Endgame storyline.

Screencrush.com's Matt Singer says movie is a triumph of more intimate, character-driven stakes.

And New York critic Edward Douglas says the movie is a test of Tom Holland's star-power in the wake of Endgame – something he passes with flying colours.
