Parental Guidance: ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’

  • COURTESY COLUMBIA PICTURES

    The latest “Spider-Man” flick is fun, youthful and refreshingly light. Great for the whole family but too scary for younger kids.

“SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME”

>> Rated: PG-13 for for sci-fi action violence, some language and brief suggestive comments.

>> What it’s about: The follow-up to “Spider-Man: Homecoming” follows Peter Parker and pals on a European tour, where they encounter the Elemental monsters and the mysterious Mysterio. As is often the case with these movies, a smaller, livelier entertainment is nested inside the roaring, clanking digital machinery. The high-school comedy bits of “Far From Home,” while not especially original, have a sweet, affable charm.

>> The kid attractor factor: It’s a Spider-Man movie? Comic/superhero!

>> Good lessons/bad lessons: You know what they always say: With great power comes great responsibility, and in a post-Avengers world, Spider-Man is looking to unload some of the burden of responsibility.

>> Violence: Some action violence — destruction of cities, etc. Nothing too gory, but a few violent images and blood.

>> Language: Some instances of swearing.

>> Sexuality: References to teen sexuality/kissing, etc.

>> Drugs: None.

>> Parents advisory: This superhero flick is fun, youthful and refreshingly light. Great for the whole family but too scary for younger kids.
