“Captain Marvel” is a puzzle piece that fits between the events of “Avengers: Infinity War” and the coming “Avengers: Endgame.”
It’s like a connecting bridge; almost an “Infinity War 1.5.”
It’s an origin story, but it also answers a few questions lingering from the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Ultimately, it’s just a lot of fun.
“Captain Marvel” feels different from any MCU film that has come before it.
It’s set in the 1990s, and it feels like it was made in the 1990s.
I’m not sure how the filmmakers pulled this feat off, but it feels accurate to the time.
The sets seem simpler, the technology is sparser and the soundtrack is grungier.
“Captain Marvel” is not overly flashy, and it’s not super-epic.
It’s small, focused and cryptic.
The movie felt like it was made in the 90s and pulled off the shelves and made into a hit blockbuster movie.
“Captain Marvel” was a fantastic movie and I would definitely see the film again.
The film brought in the astronomical amount of $990 million in the three weeks it has been in theaters.
It kept a die-hard Marvel fan like me engaged, and it kept newcomers engaged as well.
I recommend seeing it in theaters in the next few weeks or when it comes out on DVD.
