Review By Me
Being one of the most anticipated movies of the year, MCU’s 21st film is out and is kicking butt at the box office. I was not familiar with this character until the mid-credit scene of last year’s Avengers: Infinity War. From that scene we can expect Captain Marvel to help the heroes of Infinity War defeat Thanos and hopefully restore earth’s population, so its only right we get a movie on her. Now let’s hop into my movie review on Captain Marvel. Of course this movie is suppose to take place in the 90s and with seeing an actual Blockbuster, references about 90s T.V. shows/movies, and the 90s music, the movie stayed true to that era. I also enjoyed the action scenes, especially those scenes that featured Captain Marvel fighting and using the energy blasts coming from her hands; I think she has some cool powers. Another thing I loved about the movie, was the relationship between Captain Marvel and Nick Fury, they’ve established a great dynamic relationship, which was nice to see develop. I also wanted to highlight the performances of Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Jude Law, and Lashana Lynch; each gave great performances giving us memorable characters. I also enjoyed the visual effects; which did not look cheesy or bad, and the CGI was great; And lets not forget that the humor was well placed. I feel that every film in the MCU has some humor, which works. I honestly feel like the movie was well paced, although it may be slow at times. I say that this film is a good addition to the MCU and is worth checking out. I think Brie Larson is amazing as Captain Marvel and I think she did great in this movie including the cast. So If you saw this movie, or plan on seeing it let me know what you think in the comments below. Thanks for reading !
