'Captain Marvel' Review

Updated on March 18, 2019

Captian Marvel review

While Wonder Woman may have caused a splash back in 2017, Marvel has finally gotten around to making their own female-led superhero movie, and Captain Marvel has not disappointed. Opening to $153 million, about $50 million more than Wonder Woman's opening box office weekend, Captain Marvel has been an enormous success. The movie has undoubtedly garnered hype for the upcoming Avenger's Endgame. Without giving too many spoilers, this movie fits into the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while also retaining its own story about Carol Danvers, played by Oscar winner Brie Larson.

Larson brings a warm, yet tough attitude to the character and delivers the emotional moments while also nailing the humor. The movie takes place in the early-mid 1990s, so some recurring MCU characters return as younger versions of themselves. One of the great things in the film is the relationship between Carol and Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson. Fury utterly is delightful in this movie, and his love for the cat Goose is not only sweet but hilarious as well.

The movie does have some pacing problems in the beginning, mostly in trying to set up Carol's life in outer space. However, the film picks up when she lands on Earth, falling through the roof of a Blockbuster store. Oh, the 90s nostalgia is excellent in the movie, and I loved the music choices throughout the film. Most of the action scenes in the film are well done, but some of the CGI doesn't look well, especially towards the end. But one thing the film does well is show off how powerful the character is.

There are a few surprises throughout the film, some are fun, and some might be predictable. The comedy is good, and I loved the character of Captain Marvel and her relationship with not only Nick Fury but a few other characters as well. One thing the movie does is to build excitement for the next Avenger's movie, Endgame. Make sure you stick around for the credits, it's pretty crazy. Captain Marvel may not be as high as the Avenger's or Captain America movies, but it's about as good as the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. I very much enjoyed it and can't wait to see it again!

Rating- 7/10
