     Marvel’s newest entry to their ever-growing expanded universe, Captain Marvel was released on February 22nd to immense criticism. Currently holding the 7th place for most earned Marvel movie on the opening weekend, Captain Marvel was a major success financially but reviews aren’t very favorable.

     The movie is about character Captain Marvel, an extraterrestrial Kree warrior who finds herself caught in 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, Captain Marvel tries to uncover the secrets of her past while harnessing her special superpowers to end the war with the evil Skrulls.

     Having been the first ever Marvel movie to feature a female main protagonist, many bombarded the movie on review sites with negative reviews before the movie was even released to the public causing many to be outraged. Controversy aside, the movie’s plot was very  overused with many other superhero movies following a same pattern and the plot element about losing her memories only made plot more confusing and less enjoyable. The performance from actress, Brie Larson was also very lackluster with many scenes feeling void of emotion and not very convincing. While that being the case, the banter between her character, Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) and Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury, was very well performed and deserves praise. Overall not being one of the best Marvel movies to come out in recent years, it’s still a great addition to the cinematic universe leading up to the events of End Game, coming in April.
