IF you have being following all the Marvel movies and storyline you might get a hang of this new installment that would be leading into the final sequel of “The Avengers: End game”. If you enjoyed Avengers: Infinity war, then you will be glad you watched this one as it will give you an insight into how SHIELDS started and how the Avengers got its name.
Personally I think Captain Marvel could have been better. I had loads of mixed feelings after seeing this movie, likewise most of my friends who also left the cinema unimpressed. There is just something not completely right about this movie, and I would conclude that our expectations of a Marvel movie were not met in comparison to previous ones. Also I would like to call to your attention that like all other Marvel movies, you need to sit till the very end to get a grasp about the whole movie and what to expect from the upcoming edition.
Captain Marvel was produced by Marvel Studios, Distributed by Walt Disney and written by Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck. It is an action adventure movie, quiet exciting but at a point got quiet unrealistic, I liked the new twist, throwback to the past movies and the introduction of the new super hero.
Let me state that I liked a few things about this movie, the production was ofcourse top notch, the cast was absolutely amazing, the cinematography was on point, the storyline was good, but quite complex to comprehend as there were loads of flash back and old scenes, making it quite difficult to understand if you skip any scene.
To be honest at some point I couldn’t even tell if we were in the present age or previous age. There were some unrealistic scenes towards the end that left everyone in the cinema quiet speechless, wondering “How on earth that was possible”? Anyway I guess we all remembered that it was a super hero fiction movie, but then shouldn’t look so out of place.
“Captain Marvel” started with Marvel rehearsing with her coach, who had being training and teaching her all she needed to know about her skills, powers, mind control and surviving on her new planet “C53”.
After much training and coaching it was time for her to be sent on a mission, but first she had to speak with the main leader to be sure she was fit to go. The experience was another funny one, as she had to convince her that she had made away with her past and was ready to go all out to make sure that C53 came out victorious from the mission.
It was obvious that Carol Danvers as she was called was depicted as one of the world’s most powerful heroes on earth. She was tangled in the middle of a galactic war between two races, that took place in the early 90”s.
Captain Marvel displayed her tenacity and strength and was taken on the mission. On getting to earth, she was kidnapped had to find her way back to “C53” The ‘bad’ guys wanted the information she had in her subconscious mind from her previous life so they tortured her. Old relationships were rekindled, Samuel L Jackson brought on some spice too but you will need to see the whole movie to see how it panned out and if she made her way back or remained on earth.

To my verdict I would score this movie a 7/10, it wasn’t so fantastic or impressive, I wasn’t thrilled or moved after all the hype. I really also haven’t spoken much about the movie, which is quiet weird for a Marvel movie.
Most of our expectations were not surpassed hence the not so fantastic score. They would have to do a lot in making sure we get impressed with the upcoming “Avengers: End game”. The honest truth is that they would make a lot of money and the turnout will be huge considering we are talking about a Marvel movie here, the major concern will be making sure that the expectations of the fans are met.
Another dicey point for me now is whether to recommend or not. Well if you are a fan of the Marvel group, then you might enjoy it, but if you are not, this might not be the ideal movie for you. After all was said and done, it was nice to see a glimpse of what we would be expecting come April.
