    The story 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. Set in the 19, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    I’m going to have to agree with the reviewer. To me the weakest part of the film was the Brea Larson as Carol Danvers. Each of the past characters of the MCU were played by carefully chose actors and actresses who echoed the personality of the character. While Larson is an excellent dramatic actress, she does not carry an action film well. Within the decades of existence of Carol Danvers as a character, she has been written as a woman of passion and enthusiasm, much what you would expect a fighter pilot and super spy turned superhero. Larson’s performance seems to go in the exact opposite direction in portraying those traits.

    The movie also has difficulty with a plot that is to convoluted for such a short film, and a pacing that feels disjointed half the time. A rewrite of the script and a better film editor were in order.

    The film is not the worst of the MCU movie, but long term the best parts are the acting of the support characters and just being an MCU movie. In the long run, it most serves to introduce the Skrull-Kree War to the fans of the MCU and set the stage for a future Secret Invasion story arc.

    I can assure you that the SciFiMoviePage is NOT scared of making Marvel mad. Marvel has no affect on our reviews whatsoever. Rob is giving HIS opinion. Personally, as a Marvel purist and someone who loved the stories of the Infinity stones going back to their earliest uses in Marvel Comics, I do not care for the deviation from the background stories. I will be addressing this in my own op/ed piece soon.

      He means that he or SciFiMoviePage are scared of making Marvel mad so he is following the script that Marvel passed out months ago that any criticism of this movie is misogynistic. Just like pointing out that casting Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie was blatant pandering is allegedly racist ( NO NO I get it of course the last female Asgaurdian warrior is a black woman with an English accent, that totally makes sense if you don’t think about it at all) That is why this movie (I went to see this morning) which is just OK is going to get a lot of positive praise from female critics and male critics who are scared of Marvel or feminist backlash. HONEST REVIEW: the story is kind of flat and Brie Larson comes off as stiff and not someone you would actually want to spend time with. Think of a movie about Zoey Saldana’s Gamora minus any sense of humor.
