Yes, I went and saw yet another superhero movie. I can’t help it, I have always loved a good superhero flick ever since I was a kid. “Captain Marvel” is a good superhero flick. While not a “knock your socks off awesome” entry, It’s a thoroughly fun watch from beginning to end. Set in the 1990s, before the events in “The Avengers”, the film introduces Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Danvers, played by Brie Larson, had been taken in and trained by the Kree in the Starforce Military after being involved in an accident that wiped her memory. She ends up crashing to Earth during a battle with the Skrulls and begins to discover that she is not who she believes she is. With help from S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury, Danvers begins to unravel the truth about her past as well as uncovering an even bigger secret.
The story and action sequences are on par with most other MCU hero origin stories. A good amount of humor to balance out the serious tones. Great visual effects. A good lead in to the upcoming Avengers: Endgame and very fun to watch. I score it at 7.5 out of 10.
