WHAT I LIKE?
Captain Marvel is the first ever movie in the Marvel Comics Universe that showcased a female superhero lead which is I think very iconic ad very empowering to say the least. As the Avengers; Infinity War positioned Captain Marvel’s role to be very important and vital especially on Avengers: End Game – the most anticipated superhero movie yet. The movie brings nostalgia as it brought us to the 90’s era and the early years of Nick Furry and SHIELD. What I like about the film is its consistency from its supernatural world down to the 90’s period. Since there are both worlds, the movie gave a good compromise in terms of Production Design & Plot design as a whole. Brie Larson was perfect for the role. Her charm and angst were such a solid reason to watch this. Overall, Captain Marvel is a fun-flick.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
In as much as I would like to adore Captain Marvel’s charm, but this movie is for me the most lackluster and lousiest movie in the MCU. Perhaps, the release date of the movie doesn’t add much anticipation for the upcoming Avengers; End Game. I guess they could have released Captain Marvel somewhere before Infinity War. Well, spare me the comparison but Wonder Woman is much more compelling and empowering. I find it a lazy move of MCU to introduce Captain Marvel at the height of everything. Narrative-wise, its a bit weak and off for me at some points. They have invested more on self-discovery and they veered away from going deeper to the special powers and the big role of Captain Marvel in the End Game. Also, the movie felt flat in terms of actions. Well, it is good but not as good as I expected it to be considering the movie will give hype for End Game.
