Captain Marvel - 08 March 2019 - ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) 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, (A rejuvenated Samuel L Jackson) Captain Marvel tries to uncover the secrets of her past while harnessing her special superpowers to end the war with the evil Skrulls.
Overall, the film is entertaining but it does not break any new ground. The first third of the film is a bit convoluted and hard to follow but once things kick off in 1995s planet earth things get more exciting. The 90s nostalgia is well done and the music soundtrack works well. The buddy cop like banter between Fury and Danvers adds charm to the film as does Goose the adorable, scene stealing cat and a surprisingly plot twist that I did not see coming.
A solid addition to the Marvel Universe and I’m excited to see how Captain Marvel fits into Avengers: Endgame, which we get a little sneak peak of in the after credits scene.
