Directors: Anne Boden, Ryan Fleck

Synopsis of the Story:

Description: Captain Marvel is an extraterrestrial Kree warrior who finds herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the Skrulls. Living on Earth in 1995, she keeps having recurring memories of another life as U.S. Air Force pilot Carol Danvers. With help from Nick Fury, Captain Marvel tries to uncover the secrets of her past while harnessing her special superpowers to end the war with the evil Skrulls (Google reference)

Overall rating: 4/5 stars

My Review:

This movie was pretty interesting, but I liked the humour more than the actual plot. Samuel L. Jackson who plays Nick Fury in the story, was basically the guy who lightens things up with his new-found “pet.” Normally people don’t see much of Fury in Marvel movies (well I’m not sure if he does but I don’t see much of him) so it was a good change to see him appear as one of the MCs. I’m so glad they added him in because he was h i l a r i o u s.

On the other hand, the plot… welp it was pretty okay I suppose. Not very super duper extremely great, but still good enough to receive four stars from me. This movie basically followed Captain Marvel who was then not yet called Captain Marvel on her journey around Earth, trying to find her true identity. That was intriguing, because it sort of linked back to other Avenger movies, showing how the tessaract was found and how Nick Fury lost an eye.

My favourite part of this movie was the plot twist concerning the Skrulls, and me being the person who cannot see plot twist hints screaming right in my face until it happens was shook by this.

I would really recommend anyone to watch this, especially MCU fans, because it does explain quite a bit of things that happen in earlier movies.

  1. I absolutely agree with that rating, it was a solid start and an interesting plot twist. It will be interesting to see how Captain Marvel will fit in with the leftover Avengers.

  2. Thanks for posting this! I’ve heard quite a bit about it and would love to see it, sometime!
    Quick question: I have a friend (who IS a guy, by the way) that said that he found the movie to be very feminist and I was wondering what your thoughts on it, were? Is that just a guy thing to say, or was the movie actually very feminist?
    Thanks So much!! ❤

  3. No problem glad you enjoyed the review! Hmm.. that’s a pretty good question. I don’t tend to get involved in these kind of feminisms and stuff, but the main character IS a girl as you can most probably tell and it probably has SOME hints of feminism? You might want to watch it for yourself and decide though 🙂

  4. Okay, thanks so much! I wasn’t sure how true my friend was when he said that, because he can be overly sarcastic, at times when you don’t even know it. XD
    Thanks again!
