Review: ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ often soars, though not as much as it twists

Still, given how apocalyptic the stakes were in “Avengers: Endgame,” you might roll your eyes at the curiously perfunctory new threat that surfaces here. Enormous monsters called Elementals, constructed of earth, wind, water or fire, are wreaking havoc in major European cities. Agent Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) manages to intercept Peter in Venice, shortly before a water monster lays waste to the city’s canals, and recruits him for a team that includes Fury’s no-nonsense No. 2, Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), and Quentin Beck (a well-cast Jake Gyllenhaal), a caped fighter who goes by the apt nom de plume of Mysterio.
