I have scrolled through 4 pages of 1 star reviews but IMDB has this movie at 7 out of 10 stars. This movie is the single worst marvel movie ever made. Terrible plot, lifeless hero, and garbage dialogue. We get it Hollywood you want a film and actress like this to be successful but the simple fact that your politics don't jive with people who just want entertainment otherwis show this film on CNN and not a theater.Save your time and money and wait till End Game.
Captain marvel doesn't have any impact in the Endgame movie. With or without her it won't change a bit. So...
And it's not a good movie anyway.
I've liked Brie Larson in other films, but she showed ZERO range in this. When your main character in a superhero movie is unwatchable, you already have a problem. In addition, Captain Marvel has no weaknesses, which kills the tension immediately. There is no point at which you feel she is in any danger of losing, or any danger at all for that matter.It's an OK origin story, but it makes no sense as to WHY she's supposedly so powerful.The cat was good.
Over-hyped and very underwhelming and sadly ranks alongside "the Incredible Hulk" in the otherwise incredible MCU. Does not bode well for Avengers: Endgame and Phase 4 if this is the path Marvel is going down
Like so many people, I WANTED so so bad to like this film. It's a Marvel film so I was hyped. I'll get the only things I like about the film out the way first. The CGI on Sam Jackson and Clark Gregg was amazing but expected. I also liked the costumes. Now the bad. They had no character development whatsoever. Whoever directed Brie Larson to be this bland of a character (and we know that she's a great actress) was just dumb.They had 5 screenplay writers in this movie and it might be the reason why everything is just so badly paced and convoluted. It's cheesy, cringe worthy comedy and in my theater experience on Friday night as I watched the film, 90% percent of the audience did not laugh at all at the comedic bits.I love Brie Larson as an actress but the controversy surrounding this film clearly added to its demise. When you inject political statements into a movie that not only don't make any sense in the premise of the movie, but when you put it in a film that is supposed to be a COMIC BOOK movie at its core, you already begin the demonization of your audience/fan base.This movie was political propaganda for the Left plain and simple. We didn't ask for this garbage dialogue that is so obvious in their agenda to politicize, not polarize the audience. NOBODY TALKS LIKE THAT IN REAL LIFE.At least in comparison, Wonder Woman was subtle but effective. This film tries so hard to make these messages that don't belong in the film at all and hilariously tries to make it profound. I think what disappointed me as a fan also is the lore or lack thereof in the movie. It seems like the writers had the attitude of "this is the way it is; just cause; we don't need to further elaborate, they should get it." Without going into spoiler territory, you will simply feel really let down and cheated by the 'why' behind explanations into certain big things.All in all, this should serve as lesson for the people at Marvel running things, leave your political propaganda at home before touching these films. It started with Black Panther (which was a great movie at the end for obvious reasons) but I didn't think the scope of promoting unneeded politics would have this kind of negative effect. It could've been a great first female lead role for the MCU but you just shot not only yourselves in the foot, but that of your fans' as well. Movie after movie, you people say "it's because of the fans that this is all possible". With this film, you clearly don't think that and slap the face your audience (that's smart enough to see) by taking advantage of your status as film makers in Hollywood to inject poison into these films that have no place. I just couldn't believe how much B.S. was just left for me to absorb. I am not a sexist privileged male, or whatever jargon you will try to justify against this review (I feel that's most likely going to disappear some how because of the lengths people will go to defend their bias), I am simply a comic book fan that wanted a great comic book movie and this film gave me none of that.
Her performance was forced, uninspiring and flat! Not looking forward to the next movie with "her" in it....
Captain Marvel is so lousy and a weapon the avengers can use to bore Thanos to submission.
