Movie Review: Captain Marvel

        If you haven’t seen Captain Marvel or any marvel films prior to this review, I recommend you stop reading and go see all the marvel movies because there are going to be a lot of spoilers. All the Marvel films are connected to each other, so you will have a much better experience when you’ve seen the prior films. Captain Marvel is considered a prequel even though it came to theaters  after Avengers: Infinity War. The film follows Captain Carol “Avengers” Danvers, a former air force pilot, who at the beginning of the movie seemed to suffer from memory loss so the audience is only shown snippets of  her memory. While Carol slowly gains her memory back throughout the movie, you begin to see the full length of  her memory and how she realizes that the Skrulls are not the enemy. The enemy were the Kree, a race of noble warrior heroes, who deceived and convinced Carol that the Skrulls were the enemy. Carol gained her powers from an energy outburst that erupted from a device that the Kree were also after, unleashes her power, saves the world from destruction, and finds the Skrulls a new home where they will be safe from extinction. The film also included familiar characters and objects like Nick Fury, Agent Coulson, Ronan, The Tesseract and Korath the Pursuer who later joins Ronan’s team as seen in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 1. Captain Marvel was a breath of fresh air after the constant repetition of male super hero leads, she was very charming, witty, and empowering which  made the film enjoyable and funny. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate Captain Marvel at an 8.  The reason I didnt rate Captain Marvel at a 9 or a 10 is because she is portrayed as indestructible. I've come to realize that is not true in Avengers: Infinity War that, any super hero can be killed, some are just harder than others which makes the story line much more fascinating and relatable. Captain Marvel lacked that fascination and relatable aspect  towards the ending of the film. Overall I enjoyed the heart racing, funny, action that was brought to life on screen. I recommend seeing the film before Avengers: Endgame in which Captain Marvel will return, in theaters April 26th.

  1. That's an interesting synopsis of the movie that you just posted. But as far as a movie watcher, who's into the Marvel universe and hasn't seen Captain Marvel, what is your general opinion about the movie? Did you find this movie exciting and worth watching?? As far as rating from 1 to 10, what rating would you give this movie? Usually prequel movies that explains the backstory of a character start with a slow pace and tend increase the pace towards the middle of the movie. Is this true when discussing the structure of the movie?

  2. I definitely see where you are coming from, I didn’t really review the movie or else’s opinion would be all over it. I just gave a summary instead of a review. I will rewrite and update it as a review and not a brief summary.
