Storyline Heading
Set in the 1990s, "Captain Marvel" sidesteps the traditional origin story template, with Carol Danvers already possessing her superhero powers. Leaving her earthly life behind, she joins an intergalactic elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by their enigmatic commander, Yon-Rogg. But after Danvers has trained and worked with the Starforce team, and become a valued member, she finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. While on Earth she quickly lands on the radar of Nick Fury, and they must work together against a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls-the notorious Marvel bad guys made even more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities-and their leader, Talos, who is spearheading a Skrull invasion of Earth.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Sci-Fi - Like all previous Marvel Studios films, this is an effects-heavy action adventure, with more of a science fiction bent like Guardians of the Galaxy, and takes place before most of the previous films. The film has stronger appeal to women than most due to the female protagonist. Samuel L. Jackson has a much larger role here than in previous Marvel films. There is some language and largely bloodless violence that will be of note to parents of young kids, but most will find this safe viewing for pre-teens and up.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average ...a disappointment. The acting and special effects are solid but the writing...is lazy. This plays like the kind of generic comic book movie that was in vogue 15 years ago. It's high on stale, low-tension action, necessary to make the characters and their story compelling. It's the action movie equivalent of "busy work.”

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average It's fine and often quite funny. It fits securely within the MCU but also functions sufficiently as a stand-alone entity. But the character, and the tremendous actress playing her in Oscar-winner Brie Larson, deserved more than fine.

USA Today Full Review
Good While the retro action-adventure gets a little lost in its own nerdy nostalgia, the 1995-set prequel of sorts to the rest of the Marvel saga still manages to be a blast with plenty of sci-fi satisfaction and entertaining characters.

NY Post Full Review
Below Average Nearly every aspect of this film is half-baked. An anti-war message that's introduced believes itself to be wise and sophisticated, but is actually naive and overly simple. And the movie desperately wants to be a feminist rallying cry, but does little to earn that role outside of having a female main character...

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 148 moviegoers:
FANTASTIC REVIEWS! Don't believe the so-called "professional" movie critics. Most rated it "above average," or lower. The vast majority of moviegoers, both males and females, absolutely LOVED "Captain Marvel." The males enjoyed it just slightly less than the ladies, which is a surprise since many guys didn't like the idea of a female Captain Marvel character.
