Full of starring superheros plus excellent on-screen performance, the blockbuster movie doesn't let audience down. See detailed reviews below. Rating: 3,5/5

Captain Marvel has just had its premiere since last week but received enormous attention from the public already. It may owe the root to the fact that this is the very original female superhero flick. As a result, it is primarily invested with stunning scenes which will impress you at the blink of an eye. Director Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck together with female lead Brie Larson, don't let the audiences down as doing a great job here.

Movie Captain Marvel


Captain Marvel centres around the story of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), who lives in an alien planet and possesses a power to shoot things down only with bare hands. However, she has no idea about its origin, as well as ways to use it effectively. Also revealed in the trailer, our lead actress is a jet pilot. The movie narrates her adventurous and intriguing journeys to find out who she is and where the powers come from.

Bonus points

No one can deny Brie Larson's excellent acting skills after watching the heroine's brilliant on-screen performance. She brings the character alive when properly showing all of her emotions, ups and downs in different scenes. Besides heroic things done to help people, she also captures audiences' hearts thanks to a good sense of humour, bringing relaxing laugh amid tension and nerve-racking situations.

Another outstanding character we can't miss out is Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson). Despite showing appearance in some of Marvel's movies before, not until Captain Marvel is this warrior detailedly and vividly depicted. His other inner sides are described for the first time, such as being humorous yet emotional and vulnerable. And a surprising, interesting fact, he loves cats, mainly Goose the Cat, the adorable secret element of the film.

The remaining cast, including Ben Mendelsohn (as Talos), Lashana Lynch (as Maria Rambeau) and more, also significantly contribute to the movie's success. And as mentioned before, its impressive visuals can continuously have you on the edge of your seats.

Minus points

The plot is a little predictable, as well as disappointing in that it's over sensitive when handling a female-led film. Some scenes when woman empowerment is excessively emphasized, slowing down the movie's speed, leave the audience a feeling of being forced.


Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck did significantly in directorial, while Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson are there to capture all of movie watchers' attention. In general, it has received various critics since its release, most of which are positive and rewarding. A satisfactory film worth watching!

Rating: 3.5/5
