The first real Dud in the Marvel series - Captain Marvel review by IT

Spoiler Alert
11/08/2019

I've loved all the Marvel movies, but this one just didn't have anything for me. To everyone who enjoyed the movie, I'm glad you did - but here's what ruined it for me personally...

The lead actress is wooden, dull and has the charisma of a brick.

The story is minimal and the supposed "twist" is glaringly obvious well over an hour earlier.

When the heroine reveals all her powers, she is utterly indestructible and devastating (even flying through a huge spaceship) - so there's no risk to her at all. How can this be exciting?

The back story on Nick Fury destroys the character on an effort to be funny - making him rather pathetic.

The film left me wondering about the future of the Marvel series. After developing a wide range of great characters over many movies, suddenly a new one appears who is more powerful than all the rest put together... making all the originals second tier and disposable. Not a pleasant surprise!

Captain Marvel was a Man - Captain Marvel review by TA

Spoiler Alert
22/07/2019

Should have been a great Movie, sadly Marvel got cucked by the Feminazis and decided to ruin the Franchise and cast a Woman as Captain Marvel, they did use the correct name, Carol Danvers but she was Miss Marvel in the Comic Books not Captain Marvel.

Almost a good movie but ruined by these facts alone

Not bad. - Captain Marvel review by AH

Spoiler Alert
29/07/2019

It's okay. I like Bree Larson, she's kind of a female Chris Pratt. She doesn't act, she just poses and does that smile, a kind of smug, sexy, superior smile And often that's enough. But it's not much to make a film out of. There's not much character here. The only actual hint of a character is when we hear from a little girl that Auntie Carol never really got on with her family...and? And nothing. We never hear why. Or learn much about Carol Danvers. Her alien alter ago is also basically blank. There's more time spent to convince us that the US Airforce is NOT racist or sexist at all (I have no idea whether it is or not, but this film seems to protest too much) than there is on Carol Danver's actual personality.

The story is not that interesting either. It's okay. A bit like Star Trek IV for a bit, then a bit like Guardians of the Galaxy. It's not bad. And it doesn't end with a big endless CGI battle, so that's good. But it's not great. Great is the last two Avengers films. Very good is the Guardians films, and the new Spiderman films, and the Antman movies. Pretty good is Dr Strange.

This is slightly better than Dr Strange, but not as good as the new Spiderman films.

Critic review

Captain Marvel review by Mark McPherson - Cinema Paradiso

Bagged with a lot of online hoopla from feminism-feasting trolls and a controversial campaign of white males against what they deemed a condescending move by Marvel, the Captain Marvel movie ultimately arrives as a strong addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and not the downfall of the saga many had been spinning for months. Though not quite the cultural milestone of Black Panther for its insertion of female empowerment more tacked-on than interwoven, the film stands its ground as a solid workhorse picture of a sci-fi spy story, while also adding to the MCU timeline.

One could argue that it follows the same Marvel formula but there’s a more unique angle present. Most Marvel solo pictures follow the format of posing a hero as comfy in his ways, stripped of power, and forced to redefine themselves as a better man. Now we have Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) trying to define herself first. At the beginning of the film, she’s Vers, a soldier of the intergalactic Starforce. But she’s not like most of the Kree she serves alongside, harboring an amazing ability to shoot energy out of her hands. She also has a fractured memory with dreams of a life on Earth, thoughts that linger while she serves the Kree’s war against the shape-shifting Skrulls, pointy-eared creatures who can manipulate their bodies into any species.

The battle soon leads to 1995 Earth and Carol is determined to find answers. Accompanying her on unraveling both her past and a galactic conspiracy is a young Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), starting to climb to the higher ranks of the secretive SHIELD organization. Jackson has been given a visual effects makeover to make him look as young as he youthful as did in the likes of Pulp Fiction or more accurately Die Hard With a Vengeance (no mention of those films in this timeline, despite Carol crash landing inside a Blockbuster Video). And yet the film never lets itself get too carried away with trying to make Jackson as booming as he was during that decade.

I suppose that’s the best way to describe most of the movie in how it stages Carol’s sci-fi spy plot of missing memories, invading alien forces, and shape-shifting creatures. It never goes overboard with the 1990s references, avoiding a geeky ode more akin to how Guardians of the Galaxy dipped into a 1970s vibe. It never makes Carol’s true story all-the-way clear until the end, keeping her past diced up in intriguing non-sequential nuggets. I just wish the whole female empowerment angle didn’t feel quite so bold as it does when the message comes smashing into the third act. It doesn’t hamper the rest of the film but it does come with a surprising bluntness that contrasts from the more subtle presentation of the rest of the themes.

The action is as capable as it is in any Marvel film and helps breaks up the story when the fun and exposition may go too long. Carol’s fascinated first exposure to Earth culture quickly leads to a fast and exciting chase and fight on a train. She will later pilot an experimental aircraft with Fury and a cat in tow. And, wow, that cat is a lot of fun in more ways than one.

Many make equate Captain Marvel to the previous Marvel solo movies of heroes defining themselves but I found this one a bit more refreshing. Where most solo heroes start at the top, have their powers stripped, and need to redefine themselves, Carol spends this film just trying to define herself period. And while this does hold her back from coming into her own as the character more comfortably, it does make for brisker take that left me more excited for the third act than most of these solo movies where we can see the writing on the wall as the film nears home plate. But what I dug most in the film is a scene where Carol finally comes into her own with her powers and refuses to fight fair with her rival, arguing she doesn’t need to prove herself that way. It’s a statement that Captain Marvel need not to be held to a higher degree than the previous solo superheroes in terms of her motivations and pride. And from this aspect, she’ll fit into the MCU just fine.
