Movie Review: Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel is the twenty-first film of the Marvel Universe, which are based on the Marvel Comics character Carol Danvers.
“Vers” (aka Carol Danvers played by Brie Larson) is a member of the Kree Warriors who are in war with the Skrulls (an alien race of shapeshifers). Vers has amnesia but is plagued by nightmares. Her commanding officer tries to get her to use her wit and fighting skills rather than letting her emotions rule. It is Kree beliefs that warriors must keep their emotions in check.
When Vers crash lands on Earth. Her world and everything she thought she knew is turned upside down.
I did enjoy this movie. However, I think the story could’ve used more time with Vers bonding with her friend again. And more kick-ass with both Captain Marvel and her friend, and hinted at her in the other movies. Like even the cat, Goose, would’ve been cool if he’d played a cameo in one of the other Marvel movies and Fury tell someone not to touch his cat. Just so the foreshadowing of Goose and more importantly, Captain Marvel, weren’t treated like an afterthought.
My rating 4.3 out of 5 stars
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, and historical romance.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
