Captain Marvel

A Fun and Inspiring Tale of a New Captain in Town - 7/10

by Popcult Productions


Captain Marvel is the new arguable marvel movie that follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.
Captain Marvel was actually a fun ride as any marvel movie before; it builds a great origin story for its lead character. If you’re looking to be entertained this is your movie, featuring some good action sequences and Brie Larson in her full badass mode. The fight sequences lacked in some scenes, they weren’t memorable like other marvel movies. We understand that when you have a character as powerful as Carol Danvers in your movie, you might face some difficulties in that aspect. Plus, from a technical perspective there are scenes where you really can’t identify who’s fighting who due to the color aspect and CGI which was buggy. The CGI de-aging tech used on Clark Gregg and Samuel L. Jackson was incredible too! One of the best parts of the movie was Talos played by Ben Mendelsohn who really stole the show with his amazing performance and his important role in the movie, and Goose the cat which is outstanding and very funny at times. The chemistry between Sameul L. Jackson and Brie Larson was perfect, one of the best buddy cop relationships. Looking forward to see them on screen together in the future!
The story of the movie took some turns and featured some insane plot twists. It did feel like a Memento-Christopher Nolan movie in some scenes which failed miserably. It is very risky when a character tries to recover their memories and past in films. When a lead character is lost in the movie and their backstory takes too much time to uncover, then viewers would definitely be lost too! As for Carol Danvers’s character, she was a born badass! But, in almost all MCU movies we see our characters face difficulties in their starting days like Captain America, Iron Man, and Black Panther. All these characters went through a lot to reach there full potentials. But, we can understand that Carol is a very powerful character and it’s very hard to write her better than that. In addition, Captain Marvel doesn’t fail in its core Marvel succeeds in building an inspiring and interesting character that through her movie broadens the MCU’s history in a very unique way. Now we’re really hyped to see Brie Larson reprise her role as Carol in Avengers: Endgame, as the movie didn’t impact her character’s purpose in any way.
The music in the movie gave us the 90s feel, and we didn’t think any song was out of place. The soundtrack influenced the movie’s time period and action scenes. So we recommend you go checkout Captain Marvel and form you own opinion. Do not let other haters/critics affect yours!
