Captain Marvel Reviews
A Serviceable Placeholder That Also Delights And Entertains...
Viewers may need superhuman abilities of their own in order to keep track of the diverse plot strands.
Yes, the plot sets out to establish Carol Danvers as a bonafide bad-ass and thoroughly succeeds in the end. It’s about time Captain Marvel showed up, and the Avengers are a much stronger team with Danvers on their side. This also succeeds in getting you even more excited for ‘Avengers: Endgame’ (as if that was needed). By now, MCU fans know the drill: stick around for the end credits, and you will not be disappointed. Unfortunately, the route it takes encounters some speed bumps, courtesy of the usual superhero origin issues that have troubled the genre.
Marvel fans will watch it regardless. Those who are casual viewers, you should not avoid good entertainer. You can definitely avoid IMAX and save a few pennies.
