Synopsis

Set in the 1990s, this is Marvel’s first female-led superhero film. United States Air Force fighter pilot Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is on a mission with her boss, Dr. Lawson (Annette Bening), who has invented an important piece of tech. The plane is suddenly attacked in mid-air and they crash land, but afterwards, Carol has no memory of the crash or anything that happened in her life.

All she knows is that she's a member of an intergalactic elite Kree military team called Starforce, and has been trained by their leader, Yon-Rogg (Jude Law). They are constantly on the alert for Skrulls, an alien race that can shapeshift. On a mission, they're outnumbered by Skrulls, and Carol is separated from her team. She winds up on Earth, where she meets Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), who has no idea what he's about to experience.

  • 1 star "Cheesy, not a quality marvel movie. I would say it may even be worse than Black Panther."
  • 1 star "Worst MCU movie yet."
  • 4 stars "I was fully prepared to be disappointed by Captain Marvel, but I wanted to see it before Endgame hit the screen...It far surpassed my expectations. I thought it was pretty action packed. Not any lulls or disengaging fluff, really. The story kept moving forward, it had its tongue-in-cheek moments and one-liners, a little history of SHIELD, and filled in a few things about some of the deep space races that I didn't know. Brie Larson is OK, maybe a bit plastic at times...again, if it wasn't a tie in to The Avengers, I probably would not have hurried to see it, not because I wasn't interested but really because I wasn't interested in her. She is no Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow. Still, it was a decent performance."
