‘Captain Marvel‘ is the first female-led superhero film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Brie Larson who is known for her Oscar-winning performance as a mother held captive in a room. She looks innocent, vulnerable, and determined. Larson shares great chemistry with Jackson, playing a young agent with some digital help. This is the longest role for Fury in all the avengers film so far. The film is an engaging origin story.
Larson is a powerful soldier of an alien race called Kree. In an intergalactic battle, she crashes on earth, where she encounters Agent Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). The writer-directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck keeps the action fast moving and the script aims at big laughs, it doesn’t always succeed. ‘Captain Marvel’ uses music to take use to the 1990s world in which Vers find herself. It includes ‘top-notch’ pager, dial-up Internet, and slow-loading CD-Roms.
In the race of Super-Hero films, DC has always played catch-up with Marvel. ‘Wonder Women’ was an exception because of the charm of Gal Gadot. Larson lacks the star power, but the film scores good points for getting a woman in the male dominant films.
The film seems a little dull during the first act, and in the middle as well. But the plot of the film sets Larson as a bonafide superhero. This film succeeds in getting you even more excited for ‘Avengers: Endgame’. The film gives a little disappointments because of few speed bumps, courtesy of the usual superhero origin issues that have troubled the genre.
