It's as much a sci-fi action film as a superhero flick. In particular, a fun throwback to Aliens come to earth movies of the 80s and 90s. Does a great job of capturing the feel of those films while remaining a "Marvel Movie." Pinar Toprak's score is both futuristic and spacey, and grounded in 90s action beats. There's a lot going on in the film and it benefits from rewatches. How are the Skrull really shown from the start? How many characters change roles in the film? What are the layers of subtext? It's also a very funny movie with a lot of heart.

Meh... A lot of CGI action which gets boring. Confusing story (at least in the beginning). Can't really recommend it, but it's part of the marvel stories that culminate in the final Avengers movie. Guess you sorta need to see this movie if you want to know the background of this character if/when you see that Avengers movie. The movie "Shazam" which is on dvd now is better.

We only lasted 20 min before deciding the storyline made no sense. What acting we saw was good though.

Did not like this at all. We watched 1/2 and then turned it off.

Well, I am not exactly the target market for this movie (more of a Jane Austen fan!), but this was kind of fun. I fast forwarded through most of the
fight scenes (repetitive and boring) but the relationships among the characters was pretty good. Glad I saw it (even if it was an hour shorter due to my ff action!!).

I was pleasantly surprised. Going into it, I wasn't expecting much. What I got was an enjoyable origin story set in 1995. It had fun moments and it was nice to see a young Coulson and Fury. Not the best MCU film, but an enjoyable afternoon.

A super fun movie! I've been feeling a bit done with the ever expanding lineup of Marvel movies lately, but this one reinvigorated me! It's basically a buddy movie. Good humour, lots of excitement, great use of music.

Brie Larson was an excellent choice for Captain Marvel From beginning to end this movie had so many elements. The drama, suspense, action, the twists and turns was so well executed. The way they bought her shine and glow to life was perfectly executed. Everything about Captain Marvel look real and was all together amazing. I loved how they made Nick Fury and Coulson look young, unlike supermans blurred out facial hair. Goose was an absolute spectacular and amazing wonder to watch. I loved every minute of Goose's screen time. I can not wait to see Goose again in another Marvel movie. I fanned out the entire movie. There was not one part of this movie that i didnt love. I yelled, screamed, laughed, cried and clapped the entire time. Bravo to Marvel and the entire Captain Marvel team for bringing my favorite Marvel female superhero to life. I could go on and on about how great this movie was. Captain Marvel is by far the best female action superhero movie that came out. I am so giddy and full of excitement to see what phase 4 holds for Marvel movies and the actors and actresses.

Not as bad as I was led to believe from the critics although the editing needs to be more careful. Did anyone notice the scene when she is captured and escapes and has her hands covered? Then you see her use her bare hands to push a door panel then she has her hands covered again? Good superhero action film.
