Marvel movies don’t disappoint, well except for the first 2 Thor movies and Doctor Strange, so I excited to see what they would be doing with Captain Marvel. Given her role in the upcoming film, Avengers: Endgame, I wanted to know more about her. I wanted to understand why she plays a vital role and given he abilities, now I see why.
As far as origin stories go, this was done really well. Captain Marvel’s story wasn’t your typical back story and it offered some surprises along the way. Having a strong, intelligent, brave woman as the lead character is wonderful to see. I love that she’s no one’s side kick and she isn’t really part of a team (although she does get some assistance and works well with others). Even with all that it means to see a female super hero, I didn’t view the movie as having an agenda…which was refreshing.
The movie being set in the 90’s, was nostalgic and I feel it allowed them to have some fun with the film. Some of this fun included bringing back a fan favorite, Agent Coulson. It was so good seeing him in another Marvel movie! Something I else I really enjoyed was being a part of the experience of Captain Marvel “choose” her uniform colors.
I am always amazed at how well Marvel brings all the films together. Answering questions and creating new ones along the way. They are pretty brilliant. I may have been a tad too excited that we finally get to find out what happened to Nick Fury’s eye.
Is this movie appropriate for the kids? While it does have some bad language (milder than some of the other Marvel films), there are no romantic scenes or nudity. So, I say yes. Especially if they have seen the other Marvel films.
Reminder: Don’t forget to stay after both end credits unless you want to miss out.
