Captain Marvel, 10/10
This movie is a new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). It shares a great story with a balance of action and comedy. (There are no spoilers ahead, I kept it basic.)
Brie Larson plays the role of Vers/Carol Danvers/ Captain Marvel, a strong female Kree warrior hero. The story takes place in the mid-90s, featuring a clutch music playlist. Vers is on a mission to stop Skrull, an enemy of the Kree. Even in the first few moments of the movie, the audience experiences the depth and layers of Vers’ character. Her adventures start in space on planet Holla; eventually, the action moves to Earth. Once on Earth, Vers continues her mission of finding the Skrull enemies, and she meets up with a young Nicholas Fury, played of course by Samuel Jackson.
This movie has a lot of action, sarcasm and shape-shifting. The story-line keeps momentum, pieces of Vera past start assembling, questions about who to trust and not trust are answered. Like most Marvel movies, this portion of the story gets tied up pretty nicely.
In Captain Marvel, we find out how a specific infinity stone gets to earth, how Fury decides on the Avenger project, and how he hurts his eye. And we officially know who is on the other end of the pager from Infinity War. Oh, and did I forget to mention Jude Law is in this movie, he plays a crucial role though not in every scene, but dang is nice to see him when he shows up.
I definitely recommend the movie. There are great new characters as well as favorite familiar ones. There are definitely some changes from the comics, but it works. Hopefully, you’ve seen the previous MCU movies. My personal suggestion is to watch all the Avenger phases to prepare yourself for End Game, which comes out April 26th.
