Swell, but too generic

Warning: Spoilers

Captain Curiosity is the latest Marvel comics offer and the follow-up to AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR; inevitably it’s a big step down from the success of that picture show. This one goes downwards a much more predictable route, and it suffers hugely from having a chief character who merely isn’t very interesting; like Superman, her immortality and strength make her rather boring to run across on screen. The film also suffers from having an unimposing villain, a crucial climactic scene openly copying RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, and generic action. On the plus side: in that location’southward a nice supporting turn from a funny and de-aged Samuel Fifty. Jackson; the material on Earth is gently amusing, riffing on the buddy-buddy genre; there’s a solid and major plot twist halfway through that really works; and Brie Larson is a decent actress. But they really need to remember of something more involved next time instead of this generic amnesic hero stuff.

Captain Meh.

Warning: Spoilers

Travelling to Birmingham to get Easter presents for friends and family,I decided that whilst in the urban center I would become catch a film. Visiting the oldest working movie theatre in the Uk (The Electric) I found a picture show with a run fourth dimension that would requite me just enough time to grab the railroad train home,so I get set to see the new captain of the MCU.

View on the film:

Whilst facially de-anile with seamless CGI,Samuel (yel)L. Jackson swaggers with a coolness that has non aged one bit, with Jackson hitting Fury’s comedic punch-lines with a smooth as silk ease. The first adult female superhero in the Disney Marvel films to have her own solo movie, Brie Larson brings out the heroic in Marvel’s passion to save the Skrulls, simply fails to wing to a super height in the comedic,and institution of her own origins,as Larson delivers dial lines with a stilted awkwardness which allows Jackson (who has worked with Larson three times) to outshine her in the jokes, and Larson as well keeps a cold distance from giving Curiosity the enthusiasm other superheros have when using their powers.

Designed as a origin for Captain Marvel, the writers visibly show more interest in the side characters than they do in atomic number 82, with the plight of the Skrulls bringing a center and urgency to the mission, which drifts abroad in the mid-section that focuses on Marvel’s dry beginnings. Dipping into the Dr Foreign-style fantastical with a hit sequence of Marvel fighting her inner turmoil, co-directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are joined by cinematographer Ben Davis in largely skipping over the enticing fantastical (save for a cute cat) to deliver slick Marvel Comics action gear up-pieces and Star Wars-inspired space ship races, wrapped in a catchy 90’s soundtrack leaving No Doubt on Captain Marvel’s powers.

Confusing boring childish

Warning: Spoilers

The screenplay is convoluted and confusing. The showtime feels similar you walked into a film half mode. When things beginning to get explained information technology’s also late. The humor is unfunny and kittenish. Samuel L Jackson singing and playing with the cat. The story is and then confusing and featherbrained – bouncing around between World and the space ships and shifting shapes. So the good guys are the bad guys.

Miscast is the give-and-take to draw the cast. Brie and Annette are and then out of identify – they belong in dramas and rom coms not action movies.

A blackness hole in the Marvel Universe.

Bang-up at all

Wow all the hate!! This movie was a lot of fun. It had Stan Lee on a train, it had dandy acting Agents looking similar they were young, it had expert fight action and information technology had a great true cat. All this and a decent story that clears upwards a lot about Curiosity stuff and the origin of Captain Curiosity the X USAF fighter pilot.

  • bores
  • exasperates
  • is far too glib
  • tries besides difficult to exist a feminist PSA (*show*, don’t preach plz)
  • has a horribly miscast pb hero who is also poorly written
  • made me groan when Nick Fury’s heart injury was revealed
  • shows a ridiculously happy-go-lucky Nick Fury that doesn’t mesh with his MCU personality AT ALL
  • is possibly the worst MCU film (Emmet Man and the Wasp anyone?)
  • doesn’t deserve a 7 on IMDB (specially if Wonder Adult female, a far superior film, is merely .4 ahead)
  • can and should be criticized without political insinuations (i.east, I want female superhero films, but not crappy ones similar this).
  • has mediocre at best fight scenes
  • has a sidekick grapheme that – given the circumstances – makes an insanely poor determination to “come forth”
  • has a weak grapheme arc, the hero doesn’t struggle enough to observe her powers and and so has totally OP powers and so doesn’t fully use them against a sure person (who won’t exist named, Spoilers)
  • deflated the possibility of having Skrulls every bit villains for upcoming films
  • fabricated me revise my opinion of Brie Larson as a practiced actress
  • is regrettably diminishing my interest in the adjacent Avengers pic

Fun, if formulaic action comedy that checks all the boxes for a big blockbuster hit

And then I just saw Captain Marvel at the theater. I did my best to ignore the insane corporeality of false moral rage surrounding the flick on the internet so I could walk in with a less biased perception. Overall I’m glad I gave this film the hazard information technology deserved. It wasn’t a perfect movie, merely it certainly was an entertaining origin story that farther added to the Marvel cinematic universe.

The basic plot of the motion-picture show acts both as an origin story for Captain Marvel and too a tie-in for the upcoming Avengers film. Acting as an origin movie the movie checks all of the necessary boxes. It mixed elements of an intergalactic infinite drama, traditional super hero fare, and provided some peachy throwback references to the comics. I won’t go into any details considering I don’t want spoil the plot, but overall it was a fun and action packed origin story.

Of course at this point Disney has these films downwards to a science. Equally expected the motion picture seamlessly blends drama, action, comedy, and references to the larger Marvel Universe. It’s a fun formula that really doesn’t disappoint on a superficial blockbuster level. One time the moving picture finds its groove information technology is difficult non to grinning at the mix of action and humor.

I also have to mention how well the moving-picture show captured the time period. Any 90s babe will get a kicking out of the many cultural artifacts from that era. I literally desire to watch the movie over again but to catch so many of the references. Plus the movie loving paid tribute to Stan Lee. It may have brought a tear to my center seeing him on the big screen again.

The movie was pure eye processed. The graphics were absolutely astounding and brought Captain Curiosity’s cosmic level powers to life. Seeing her at full power really should remind the audience why she is one of the about powerful Avengers. All of the activity is sure to entertain pretty much anybody.

I didn’t see any problems with the interim at all. Brie Larson is a phenomenal actress and she brought a nice combination of levity and badass attitude to the role. Of course what is not to love about seeing Samuel Jackson as a immature Nick Fury?

If you lot went merely off the online user metrics your would recollect this was a terrible film. It was far from bad, but information technology certainly had its issues. Pacing was a major issue as the second arc of the film really slowed down the progression of the film. I also felt like the pic never provided a big enough disharmonize to showcase Captain Marvel’due south power scale and artificially blunted her powers through most of the movie with a plot device. Of course that’due south the issue with introducing an overpowered grapheme by Helm Marvel only to tie into fighting Thanos for a future picture show. Plot wise in that location were also a few events that were a tad chip too convenient and really weakened the overarching story.

Captain Marvel hardly reinvents the bike as a superhero film. It firmly follows the establish Disney formula and acts largely equally an excuse to take Captain Marvel act as a MacGuffin for the Infinity War conflict. Still Captain Marvel was a very fun film. Ignore the hate online from internet trolls who dear to play their false moral outrage at every turn. The movie wasn’t perfect, merely it delivered exactly what I await from a Disney Curiosity film at this betoken. A 8.25 out of 10.

I don’t really go the hate information technology’due south not that bad

I had depression expectations going to meet this movie because everyone was hating on it but it’s not that bad I think information technology was a good superhero backstory and there is not a lot of feminism in the movie. The acting and the story lines were expert.

I think people did not like information technology because they don’t like Brie Larson and her feminism views.

For those who are open-minded people… don’t read the bad reviews, just lookout man the pic and and then judge by yourself. Of course not everything was perfect, but nosotros’re just humans… corking job guys, thank you!

What is there to marvel at?

I was left with the full general feeling, that “Captain Marvel” is a major disappointment.

Kickoff of all, in that location is a skillful story here somewhere, but information technology’s just not well told, and there’s too much of it crammed within about 115 minutes. The movie is fast-paced, but never really works, because the pacing is flat and timing is off. Aesthetically, “Captain Marvel” has been processed through the same “Marvel filter” as the rest of them. Wearisome. The filmmakers (indie directors of the keen “One-half Nelson”) have given admittedly no attention to the music: the score is completely forgettable equally are the 90’s songs.

As for the themes, the MGTOW people are going to have a field solar day with “Captain Curiosity’due south” less than subtle “feminist agenda”. I’m putting that in quotations, because it’s more than accurately described every bit simply female agenda. Which is absolutely fine and commendable; the problem is the infantile in-your-face mode the filmmakers accost the theme. The motion-picture show is set in the year 1995, and it actually feels fabricated for that twelvemonth’s audience. “Captain Curiosity” lacks a fresh perspective. And, by the way, any fans of “Buffy, The Vampire Slayer” will immediately recognise one pivotal scene lifted from a truly powerful scene in the series finale. In any case, Ballad Danvers of the comics was always a decidedly feminist grapheme, then this shouldn’t cause any waves. What’s lacking, is Ballad’s wide assortment of problems: her graphic symbol history in the comics is one of the craziest in the Curiosity universe (which is proverb something.). Movie’s much simpler.

The biggest disappointment, however, is the resourceful Brie Larson. She’s just off. I don’t know what happened, but the brilliant actress from “Room” is nowhere to exist seen. She was simply the incorrect selection, I guess. Still, I’m surprised by her lackluster-ness. The bandage isn’t slap-up, anyways, but at to the lowest degree Samuel 50. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn seem to exist having fun.

Different me, for the most office.

Eye candy and superheroes

Vers is trained as a Kree soldier to defend their empire from shape-shifting Skrull infiltrators. She has only no memories of her life before adulthood but in her dreams she sees a woman with a kind face and wise eyes.

It’s some other treat of a superhero putting downwards the villains with great special furnishings and nice i-liners. It’southward a decent script and I thought her origin story was well told without taking up too much screen time. The humor is well played and Brie Larson does look good in that, ‘rubber suit.’

I liked the cat and the portrayal of 1990s applied science that looks Victorian past modern standards. Was that Windows 95 or three.one? There are two post motion picture Easter egg scenes and I enjoyed them both very much.

Criticisms? It seems petit merely Danvers doesn’t quite have the personality stature to match her uber powers when they get released near the end of the film. We could have lost the girly squeal of delight at that time.

It’s a bit loud for young children simply anybody else volition relish information technology.

Womp womp

Brie Larson was miscasted for this role and/or was only phoning it in for this film. The style she portrays Captain Marvel seems to lack whatever blazon of interesting characteristics and personality traits. She’s as interesting equally a brick.

This moving-picture show provides niggling backstory for Helm Marvel. When information technology does try to, it’due south but a bunch of short flashbacks that don’t really add annihilation. Lacking any type of backstory makes this picture show uninteresting. Information technology’southward bad enough that the plot was lame, but on top of that the main grapheme had no graphic symbol. If they’re going to make her super powerful, they should at least requite details about getting her powers and what they are. Information technology doesn’t really practice any of that. Instead, the film feels like watching a brick.

It’south not bad but…

It’southward cypher special in the big scale of things.

I’ve finally seen this movie, after Avengers: Infinity War because I didn’t feel I’ll miss anything and I was right. There are some stakes there but in that location are not large because you obviously know Earth volition exist fine and Captain Marvel will kick ass even if she’s not even trying.

So, the thing is Marvel has continuously upped their game, so nosotros (or I) expect each moving picture to be better than the previous one. This ane is way improve than the first Marvel movies (except the first Atomic number 26-human being I was bored to tears at almost of the Marvel movies, but slowly they got better and better).

What I’m maxim this movie is not bad at all but suffers because the heroine is invincible. The interim is perfect (yes, I think Brie Larson fits Captain Curiosity, don’t listen to the negative opinions), I’m so glad we got to see a lot more of Nick Fury (don’t telephone call him Nick), and they even added some emotional twists that I really loved to run into more in superhero movies.

It’s a skilful picture that should have been part of Marvel Phase 4 and take bigger stakes. Mayhap that’due south a task for a sequel. And with Captain Curiosity, the stakes should be huge.

Honestly, I was hoping for better.

This is a very controversial Marvel film. Which seems to be a running trend with Disney films recently. The hype around this film seems to exist very mixed, some want it to succeed and some desire information technology to neglect, and both sides seem to have these viewpoints due to various political reasons. At that place seems to exist a lot of agendas involved. I practice not have whatever stake in either side considering I practise not care most this kind of thing when information technology comes to film. I don’t think it’s off-white to judge films from that perspective in a positive or negative way. In the same sense that I don’t remember it’s off-white to judge a film from a positive or negative perspective based on whether or non you similar the actors involved. I don’t care if films succeed or fail financially. Moving picture is an art form to me and I just desire to see films that are well-made by people who accept a lot of passion for their craft.

To first with things I liked, at that place’s some spurts of entertainment that come from this film. Some fun action scenes, the chemical science between Brie Larson and Samuel Jackson was very on signal. The de-crumbling effects for Samuel Jackson and Clark Gregg were surprisingly groovy. The first act overall was relatively enjoyable, especially the opening activity scene. The music/score was pretty good. And the true cat was a fun addition. But overall the pic was very bland and disappointing.

Honestly, I was hoping for better. To me a superhero movie needs to take an interesting story, well adult characters, and information technology needs to grab me and make me care about what’south going on. This applies to motion picture in general. One of the saddest things most this picture that I was genuinely hoping I wouldn’t have to say is that I don’t retrieve Brie Larson did a good job in this film. Brie Larson is an incredibly talented actress so I don’t necessarily remember she’s to arraign for that, it might have just been the poor material she was given to work with. As the flick progresses she gets increasingly more stoic, and the motion-picture show never showcases any emotion or vulnerability towards the character for some reason. And her character is given virtually all backstory with also much exposition and very little depth. And at the same time in that location isn’t enough given to brand you care nearly her or any of the characters. Overall I don’t think she fit the character, the performance was very wooden and uneven. Which is sad to say considering you can tell how much passion she’south giving towards this character.

The narrative is so scattered that she kind of gets lost in the shuffle & they forget to develop her character. Which was disappointing for me. The storytelling was very messy. This movie is trying to be an origin story, a connecting piece to the by too equally to what’s going on at present, and a gear up film for what’due south to come later. So the film kind of collapsed in on itself because it’s trying to do as well many things at once.

This honestly felt like Stage 1, which is not a good thing. That’south not to say that Iron Man and The Avengers weren’t good, information technology’south just that this movie feels a lot like the early Marvel films in the sense that it felt like they were still in an experimental stage. They were withal trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t work near their films. They’ve passed that bespeak and they know what works past now so this moving picture equally well as all the other new ones should be progressive steps forward, and this film was definitely a gigantic step backwards.

They likewise don’t do a good job making this character feel important or relevant to what’south currently going on in the MCU. We’re told she’s the most powerful graphic symbol in the MCU, but they never show us that or make u.s. feel that way. The film is a lot of telling rather than showing. Needless to say the writing and directing were pretty lackluster. As well the action other than the opening was not very skilful or memorable at all.

The Skrulls were fun villains, and relatively unique compared to other Marvel villains, but they weren’t actually given any character.

There was a lot of fun 90s references just I recall the film relies on this equally a crutch fashion too much. Which caused the tone to be very disjointed. They have 90s nostalgia for a little bit, then information technology feels like a buddy cop film with Nick Fury, and then it’s a story about the friendship betwixt her and Lashana Lynch’s character. And there’due south no effort given to make the audience feel emotionally invested in any of these stories. And since it’s e’er jumping dorsum and forth between these contrasting tones, and that made the film uneven as a effect.

There are some needless explanations for things that happen in the MCU and when they happened information technology felt corny and forced.

The film was a fun time simply this is the 21st Marvel Cinematic Universe picture, and so at this point generic fun action films are old and tired. And since there take been dozens of Curiosity films at this point they need to live upward to a higher standard. So in order for me to similar their films at this betoken they have to do something more than just making a fun movie. I tin’t believe I’m saying this only DC did it better. Wonder Woman had charm, charisma, and character development. And I Captain Marvel definitely cruel flat in this regard. Over again, in that location are moments of potential hither, just they are hiding under the bland cliched Curiosity formula. It’s a very generic film that we’ve seen many times before not just when it comes to superhero movies, and I was hoping for more than that. five/10.

Please run across the flick though and make upwards your own opinion on it. Don’t listen to what others say, don’t give in to online agendas no affair what side they’re on. But go run across the flick, make up your own mind, and when you exercise be honest about it, because that’southward how nosotros get better films, by letting the filmmakers know what works and what doesn’t work about their films.

But at the stop of the solar day the fact that this film didn’t live up to its potential doesn’t matter, and I’m still very excited considering… “Nosotros’re in the Endgame now.”

If there was no humor, there would exist no film…

The film is pretty proficient for the Curiosity line. The starting time of the truth is very heavy, were in the heart of the movie technical flaws, just the plot and the acting game supplanted everything! I like it! It is a pity that the films are non exposed chronologically, but information technology does not matter. Samuel Jackson – actor who starred in films for years, perfectly revealed his character. Brie Larson….

Just a brilliant game, believable and vivid. Replicas matched as well every bit possible.

The costumes and filming is done very efficiently.

With Love…

Hardly a Marvel

God, I love Brie Larson. Loved her in Scott Pilgrim and absolutely agreed with her Oscar for Room. So what the bleep happened hither?

It is hard to remember back to the many, MANY superheroes of the by couple of decades to find a superhero So evidently, SO boring, SO shallow, SO lifeless and without a bit of soul or personality as Brie Larson’s Helm Marvel. I had to bank check to see if George Lucas directed this, because I definitely saw the female Anakin Skywalker here.

She was then bad, or her graphic symbol, at least, she took me completely out of the movie. I never in one case rooted for her, couldn’t intendance less about her plight and frankly was merely waiting for her to cease up right where I knew she would cheers to the third Avengers movie. And that’s lamentable, because the picture show isn’t necessarily a bad 1…it’s just the title character had none of that Marvel as suggested.

Erasing the bore, I loved how the flick was shot. Set in the mid-90s, it, of course, had a kick-donkey 90s soundtrack (all of my favorites!!) and the familiar technology and stores from back then. But, bypassing that, the movie FELT similar it was shot, edited, paced and scripted like information technology was from the 1990s. I totally felt transported back to my favorite decade and I praise this movie for that.

In a rather quick and like shooting fish in a barrel to follow setup, we learn our title character wants to bring together an elite group of alien warriors hell-bent on stopping shapeshifters from destroying their protected worlds. Naturally, the one focused on in the movie is Globe and there, our “hero” has to rail the shapeshifters with no other than Nick “telephone call him” Fury.

Sadly, the movie is predictable from minute 1 and this is not only because information technology ties into many other MCU films. Normally, that would carp me, only again, the filmmaking all felt really 90s to me, so I’m pretty familiar with the old formulas.

Only a select handful of jokes landed, by and large from Sam Jackson and the special effects were good, not great. Too many of the older actors looked false as younger versions of themselves. Despite that, it was so nice seeing Annette Bening again. It’s been far too long.

I didn’t hate the movie, only volition just give information technology a VERY balmy recommendation. If Helm Marvel/Brie Larson wasn’t so incredibly and painfully dull, we would’ve had a MUCH Amend Marvel outing. It fifty-fifty concluded somewhat solidly for her, but not enough to make up for the previous 2-hours of sleepwalking she did.

***

Final thoughts: Admirable on the opening Marvel Logo and the 1st mail service-credit scene: totally worth it, especially since information technology’s only ane-2 minutes into the xx-minute stop credits. You lot can admittedly skip the last mail-credit scene and merely Google it when y’all get dwelling.

The film follows the late Curiosity formula and does not chance, does not innovate and does not dare, only delivers a fun, nostalgic result!

About to end its phase 3 with an “Ultimatum”, ane of the most awaited films of the last decades, Marvel all the same finds time to introduce new and important characters in its shared universe. In the comics, Carol Danvers, Captain Curiosity, debuted in the Silver Historic period of American comics. The character was featured in a solo serial in the tardily 1970s, before associating with the superhero teams, The Avengers and X-Men, the character was created by screenwriter Roy Thomas and designer Factor Colan. Danvers outset appeared equally an officer in the Usa Air Force and a colleague of superhero kree Mar-Vell in Marvel Super-Heroes # 13 (March 1968). In recent times, Danvers has been labeled “Marvel’s greatest heroine” and “possibly” virtually powerful Marvel Avengers member. ” In theaters, “Captain Marvel”, in improver to being the offset Marvel film starring a heroine, is the bridge betwixt “Avengers: Infinity State of war” and the long-awaited “Avengers: Ultimatum”. Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Scrap, and written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, it stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Lashanna Lynch, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Mckenna Grace, Clark Gregg and Jude Law. takes us takes us to before all the other MCU features (except for Captain America: The First Avenger). In 1995, the story follows Danvers when she becomes Helm Curiosity after Earth is caught in the center of a galactic disharmonize betwixt two alien worlds, borrowing elements from screenplay author Roy Kree-Skrull (1971). Thomas. For starters, the publisher’s homage to his legendary comic artist Stan Lee stands out, putting him in the place of the characters he created in the opening animation of Marvel Studios. Lee passed away in belatedly 2018 and, earlier that, he even recorded his famous participation in the film, actualization in the scene where the heroine hunts a Skrull in the subway. Exploring flashes of the past very well, the heroine tries to detect more most her own past, every bit well equally understand and master her powers. Finally, the heroine manages to show a more than human facet to the public through the partnership with Nick Fury that generates several situations of one-act that gives lightness to the state of war by showing it through Fury’due south still innocent optics, and also with Maria Rambeau (Lashanna Lynch), which is the heroine’s great connection to her past. It is in Maria’s memories the memory of facing prejudices as pilots and in the support for the creation of little Monica Rambeau (Akira Akbar). But there are other characters who are doing very well and steal all the scenes they participate in: Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) and the cat Goose. Yon-Rogg (Jude Law) and Dr. Wendy Lawson / Supreme Intelligence (Annette Bening) are good assistants. Because information technology is a film that takes place decades ago, information technology is curious to run across several of the characters that we go used to back-trail, in some other moment of life. Ronan the Accuser, who start appeared as the great villain of Guardians of the Galaxy and a lackey for Thanos, appears equally the leader of an elite Kree forcefulness, the Accusers; Korath is simply a Kree soldier; Agent Coulson appears as a immature and promising amanuensis and the main highlight is Nick Fury. At the fourth dimension, he was an amanuensis for S.H.I.East.L.D. who, after years as a spy, worked outside the field looking for ways to protect the Globe. He is yet inexperienced and had no knowledge of intergalactic issues, permit lone superpowered beings. Jackson and Gregg – who, amongst others, reprise their roles in previous MCU films – were digitally rejuvenated in post-production to reverberate the setting of the picture in the 90s. And the result couldn’t be better: they are of an absurd quality, adjoining on the perfection. One of the main aspects of the feature is the infinity of references not simply in relation to the stories of the publisher’southward comics, but also in the pop culture of the 80s and 90s, where the story predominantly takes place. Later on escaping the Skrulls, Carol Danvers falls to Earth within a Blockbuster video store. As the characteristic takes place in the 1990s, it is possible to see references to classics such as Hook: The Return of the Helm Claw (1991), Babe, the Rough Piggy (1995), True Lies (1994), in addition to The Elected: Where the Hereafter Begins (1983). The musical references are as well present, with several references of bands from the eighty’southward and early on ninety’s. She appears with a Guns N ‘Roses T-shirt – and finds a ticket to the group’s concert, a Bush poster appears when she is on the pay phone, Ix Inch Nails, Centre t-shirts appear, a Neat Pumpkins poster and even a reference to grunge in the heroine’s civilian outfits. Some other reference is Captain Curiosity’s cat, which in the comics is called Chewie in a reference to Star Wars. In cinema, even so, Marvel chose to phone call him Goose, a direct reference to Anthony Edwards’ grapheme in Top Gun: Untamed Aces. Information technology is not, withal, a conventional feline. Goose arrived on Globe with Mar-Vell and is an alien of the Flerken race, with internal tentacles and the power to consume objects as powerful every bit the Tesseract. In comics, the brood as well has the power to harbor dimensions inside itself, beingness able to teleport from place to identify, in improver to laying numerous eggs. In the moving picture, enlightened of the threat of Flerken, the Kree gag the fauna, in a moment inspired straight past the comics. The moving picture also reveals how Nick Fury lost his eye – a scratch from Goose, and how theories emerged nigh how he came to employ his famous eye patch, with Fury insisting on feeding the aura of mystery around the wound. There is likewise the fact that Fury was inspired by Danvers to advise to S.H.I.E.50.D. recruiting exceptional individuals to defend the Earth together from unconventional threats, and when he discovers that Danvers was codenamed “Avenger” in the Air Force, he names this protocol “Avengers Initiative”. Although the motion-picture show highlights the friend Maria Rambeau, we must pay attention to her girl. Monica Rambeau in the comics is one of the most powerful heroines in the Marvel Universe, having fifty-fifty been the outset adult female to use the proper name Captain Curiosity. In 1982, at Amazing Spider-Man Almanac # 16, Marvel introduced Monica Rambeau at the hands of Roger Stern and John Romita Jr. as a New Orleans constabulary officeholder who has the power to transform into any form of energy. As Captain Curiosity, she was a member of the Avengers and even led the squad. And then he adopted the name Photon (which in the film appears every bit Maria’s nickname in the air force, as shown in the photograph higher up), Pulsar and currently serves as Spectrum. As the film takes identify in the 90s, Mônica is around 30 years old in the present line of the MCU. Still, the film is non but a nostalgic trip and it has different points. Perhaps due to their lack of experience in running big blockbusters, the duo of directors are unable to shoot activeness scenes that look spectacular. The prevalence of more than closed plans and not so imposing scenarios, fail to requite the scenes greater proportions as they should. The feeling is that in the hands of some other manager, the scenes could be reimagined in the way that worked all-time on the big screen. In improver to not beingness grandiose, the scenes are scarce, being almost all restricted to the last act of the story, and were also not helped in many moments by the visual effects squad. In several scenes, it is possible to find the use of CGI in the composition of scenarios, giving an air of artificiality, specially in the final stretch when the heroine fights aerial fights with her powers adult. The rhythm of the film is a problem with the plot starting relatively at a slower footstep, taking fourth dimension to explicate the fundamental conflict – deeper than it appears – and, of course, the protagonist’due south role in this story. So, gradually, Helm Marvel gains a more intense cadence and it is in her arrival on Earth that the flick actually begins to take a more than divers class. There is as well the issue of the Skrull-Kree war, which is summed upward in a very simplistic and breathless mode. We take a little war. In the film, everything is very predictable. From the first, one feels that nothing is every bit it seems, and the real villains can be identified with a mere guessing exercise. Nevertheless, it is the lack of personality of the antagonists, generic in their plans and worldview, that damage the plot more deeply. Seeing this weak animosity afterward figures like Killmonger and especially Thanos is, to say the to the lowest degree, something that lowers the experience to a B or C series within this recent crop. Long before she was Captain Marvel, Ballad was a fearless girl finding her place in a globe of men. As a human, she has flaws, but whenever she fell, she got up, tried herself and got everything she wanted. A kid, a teenager, a young adult. The transformation into Kree would exist the starting bespeak for the character, if her entire past no longer assumed a hero’s journey. The feminist subtext, although well implemented, does not reach the depth that racial and cultural themes gained in the moving picture of the hero of Wakanda. And y’all don’t fifty-fifty take to reach it. Issues tin can be raised for discussion without becoming flags blindly defended by a particular group. Overall, the flick follows the late Marvel formula and does not gamble, does not innovate and does not dare, but delivers a fun, cornball result and a character that will certainly be one of the leaders of The Avengers in the next films!

A solid origin story – even at the heels of Endgame (vii.5 / 10)

I experience Captain Marvel had a lot of pressure being an origin pic at the heels of Avengers Endgame, which is less than a month away!

All the same I’m glad to say Captain Marvel is a decent origin story simply don’t expect anything on the level of Guardians / Thor Ragnarok / Infinity War.

The film has a rocky commencement – a fear of lack of personality and a plot construction that throws you off at first. The pic’south evolution definitely got better as the moving-picture show progressed which definitely stops it falling short.

For MCU fans – we got a lot of Nick Fury in this movie which is awesome considering information technology definitely adds a lot of fun to this moving-picture show and the de-ageing CGI is impressive.

The feminist stance isn’t also heavy-handed within the film, though absolutely laudable in a relatable style. On the other hand, I’d probably say Wonder Adult female is a better female led superhero movie.

I watched this movie in 3D and the 3D visuals in this movie are not specially good – scenes were also dark on top of the 3D tint (this maybe theater dependent but I do piece of work at a movie theater).

Plot wise, it’s non an essential watch simply definitely a solid standalone entry and had a nice lead in to Endgame. I look forward to seeing other directors working with her graphic symbol!

A Solid, If Not Spectacular MCU Entry

The Curiosity Cinematic Universe has been an impressive run of films, whether you accept loved every one of them or not. In my opinion, ranging from mediocre to fantastic, this franchise has had its ups and downs similar any, but zippo has really been a huge misstep, every bit producer Kevin Feige has been steering this ship in a rubber direction from start to finish. Captain Marvel is the latest introduction to a character in this franchise and while it may not rank amongst the all-time films this franchise has had to offer thus far, information technology’s a welcome addition to the family, so to speak.

Post-obit Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) equally she discovers her past and learns who she used to exist on Earth, a relationship forms between her and a few familiar faces from Shield, mainly in Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). With a war between the two races of Kree and Skrulls, Carol finds herself caught in the middle of it all, while as well discovering her past along the fashion. Filled with plenty energy to keep you engaged from kickoff to finish, this is a informal addition to the franchise as a whole. Sadly, I don’t feel that this movie explored any of the characters enough and it actually did feel like a stepping stone for a larger story to be told in the future.

Feeling very much similar the early days of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with movies like Thor or Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain Curiosity has a very solid introduction to this universe, merely there’due south a lot of room to meliorate. Brie Larson delivers a solid performance hither and I await forward to seeing more from this character in future instalments, only I wasn’t diddled away by any means. Aside from an interesting backstory, she really isn’t given anything to practice and almost seems unbeatable, which is kind of a depict-back for future stakes that may arise. Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson’s chemistry is easily the biggest highlight of this pic and will probably keep fifty-fifty the uninterested fans entertained.

Captain Marvel gets off to a very messy start throughout the get-go 20 minutes. It finds its footing very fast, only I must admit that I was very worried when the movie commencement began. The way her past is quickly thrown in and jumbled around to set-up the remainder of the film felt a little rushed, just the movie does dull down to a nice pace. It’southward not that I have a lot to mutter about here, only there truly wasn’t anything that wowed me most this movie, which was disappointing, considering it’due south the last movie that leads into the culmination of the concluding ten years with Avengers: Endgame.

In the end, Helm Curiosity doesn’t do a whole lot to dazzle, but it works very well as a standalone origin for this character. I enjoyed myself quite a bit, just this formula has been done over and over again throughout the class of these 21 films and although the formula works, I feel something new has to exist washed once Avengers: Endgame brings this first segment of this universe to a close. I had a lot of fun with Helm Curiosity, but it’s past no means a great film. I definitely recommend it to fans of this franchise (who will exist the most impacted from it) and to those who are simply looking for a fun superhero flick. Captain Marvel delivered for me, merely there was a lot that could have been improved upon.

Why the negative reviews?

Ok I had recently seen Captain Curiosity kind of late like from redbox. Missed information technology at the theater. I actually enjoyed it a lot. I similar Brie Larson I think she is very good in the part.I was confused because I thought captain Marvel was a DC grapheme so they renamed information technology Shazam. Which I didn’t run across merely back in the 40s they had a serial called Capt Marvel aka shazam. Anyhow this is a peachy MCU moving picture and the post credit scenes in that location is two by the mode. Samuel L Jackson every bit Nick Fury. Finally go to acquire how he lost an eye. No spoilers but it’s a lot of great special effects and Capt Curiosity proves to exist a superhero to be reckoned with as she battles aliens. Also in the bandage is Jude Law and Anette Benning .And then really what’s up with the bad reviews why all the haters. This movie is a real joy to behold .

Good ane.

Really first I idea it would exist a tiresome overpraised flick but I realized that this one is good and funny thanks to Nick and The cat but the ending was weak. It is true that Larson is overconfident actress just this fourth dimension information technology suited the character of Captain Curiosity who needs to be tough and confident though she is not so skillful at comedy but I enjoyed her acting in this function. Don’t get distracted by rumors try to enjoy this film after all it’s MCU😍😍.

Needed Better Trailer Editing

This is a perfect instance of horrible marketing for a skilful movie. I wasn’t too impressed with the trailers. They were kind of banal. I went into this with my expectations checked at the door, and this flick was in a higher place boilerplate. It wasn’t every bit boring and uninteresting as the trailers led me to believe, but it still has faults. For an MCU movie, it’s average, and for a movie it’s above boilerplate. The primary trouble was it tried to difficult to be some other ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ movie, only without the risks. “Guardians” was a gamble. (A film nigh a talking raccoon and a tree?! Marvel has lost their minds!). Information technology tries to capture the wonder of a sci-fi movie, but plays it too condom. There were many factors that I felt didn’t go as far as they could have. The plot is pretty pigment-past-numbers as well. This movie ‘borrows’ besides much from other films. It didn’t feel enough similar it’s own matter. There were some amusing moments, and one in particular that got a huge express mirth out of me, simply the film played it too safe. The CGI is pretty impressive. I couldn’t tell that the aliens in the flick were CGI. However, when there are scenes of characters flying, it definitely looks CGI, and cheap CGI at that. (Recollect “video game trailer.”) Larson’s acting is not as wooden equally the trailers would lead you lot to believe (almost of the time anyway), nor is the grapheme of Captain Marvel equally narcissistic and rude as the trailers fabricated her seem. She’s nowhere close to my favorite MCU character, but I wouldn’t mind seeing her render. I don’t know what nearly of Hollywood has against Ben Mendelssohn’s natural accent. Mendelssohn is a terrific actor, but in movies like “Ready Player One” and this i where they make him do an American accent, it sounds fake, and is distracting. And no, this picture show is not a 2 hour lecture on feminism. Contrary to the marketing, Helm Marvel doesn’t put down the male characters (at least not unprovoked.) This moving picture actually tin can be enjoyed by anyone. Marvel needs to re-evaluate their marketing team. Class: B eight/10 3.5/5 stars

Bire Larson. Ugh.

I’ve been a large fan of the Marvel films long earlier Atomic number 26 Human being, but this is the worst motion picture Marvel Studios has put out.

Besides being just apparently out bland, I lay well-nigh arraign on Brie Larson’s utter lack of personality. At no betoken was I remotely emotionally invested in her character. She’s hands right up in that location with Kristen Stewart and Hayden Christiansen for utterly defective in any ability to emote.

If this is the character they’re going to base of operations he MCU effectually going forrard, good luck to them.

Most of these reviews were posted before the film fifty-fifty hit theaters

Suspicious much? I on the other mitt idea this picture show was really fun. It’s one of the weaker Curiosity films to be sure … simply I thought the AntMans or Thor 2 were both far weaker and I liked this one more than than Black Panther. I loved Brie Larson, I loved her character, and information technology was Awesome to finally see a truly badass female person superhero. Like truly badass … similar I-wanna-see-Captain-Marvel-vs-Superman-cuz-I-recollect-she-could-take-him badass. It’s most freaking time!

Amazing soundtrack … all the 90’southward stuff was really fun (especially if yous were live during the 90’s) and at that place were several express joy out loud moments. Was it super nostalgic at times … sure. Were some of the “reveals” kinda hooky? Absolutely. Simply this was overall a solid, fun, film. My husband and I both left the theater grinning.

Haters need to go a life.

I liked it more than I thought I would

I heard mostly complaints most the movie because of a statement that Brie Larsen never fifty-fifty fabricated. The film got attacked considering people chose to believe a lie someone created. It always pays to do your own enquiry earlier jumping on the band wagon folks.

Captain Curiosity obviously is the Wonder Adult female of the MCU. I’ve been into comics peculiarly the Marvel ones for a long fourth dimension. Helm Curiosity was a guy at the time but even withal he was a pretty banal one that got mixed in with all the rest. Changing him over to a female person did make the character much interesting. There aren’t that many super – super powered characters in the MCU aside from the Phoenix.

In the comics in that location’s a lot of powerful women but for some reason in Hollywood there’due south non. I just don’t know what it actually is about Hollywood and Comic adaptions when information technology comes to women and minority comic book characters. “Tempest” for instance is only as popular as Wolverine equally a fan favorite but in the movies her grapheme barely serves whatsoever purpose. There was too “Psylocke” some other fan favorite female character with a reduced role that barely made them important. I just never understood the disconnect of Hollywood with Comicbook fans when information technology comes to certain characters.

Out of all the MCU movies they’re of course just male leads. Blackness Panther and Captain Marvel were the only movies that bankrupt the mold. Captain Marvel certainly being the only Female lead super hero moving-picture show I tin can remember of (and no I won’t even admit that Nighttime Phoenix nonsense). I can’t go upset with the “girl power” theme when I’ve been watching male super hero movies for the past 30 years of my life.

I was actually grateful when Wonder Woman came out because I’ve been a long time fan of her and information technology was long overdue for her movie. Captain Marvel though is a wild card. She’southward non really a popular comic character and doesn’t have huge fan base like Wonder Woman had. So this movie starts from scratch. As an origin story I found it as charming as I did all the other movies. Information technology was different and the character of Helm Marvel was unique. I didn’t get a “Bat Adult female” vibe from the pic. I actually got more of a Metroid Samus Aryan vibe. The first parts of the pic were a bit rough every bit you effort to figure out what’s going on and so much is thrown at you but it catches up mid fashion and starts to make more than sense. I feel like it would go better with a second movie now that Helm Marvel is established and they can really focus on a story where as in this film they identified the Villains.

I didn’t find it to be a bad movie probably on par with the original Iron Man that wasn’t equally exciting as the other movies became either. Time will tell though if these gets better with the later additions.
