My Reaction to ‘Captain Marvel’

I just recently went to see Captain Marvel for the first time today and I’m here to share my reaction. Captain Marvel is a must-see for any Marvel fan, for it holds some interesting easter eggs and cool setups for potential sequels (plus Captain Marvel is pretty cool) but no, it isn’t one of Marvel’s finest films.

Yes, the film has made over a billion dollars and even the theater I was in today was nearly packed full but I found it to be a tad bit off the marker. It had some truly thrilling, inspiring, and downright triumphant moments in the movie but what it lacked was…hmm, what it did it lack? It lacked a great story.

Origin stories are very basic at times. They tell the triumphs of a hero and what it took that certain character to overcome their personal obstacles to become a superhero. And that’s exactly what this movie was. Very basic, but good.

All in all, I’m glad I watched it ahead of Avengers: Endgame so I know Carol’s character and why she’s going to give Thanos so much trouble but it also won’t reach my best Marvel-movies-list. But, it was a good movie and I did enjoy it very much.

Tomorrow I’ll share with you all my full review, spoilers and all, and I can’t wait. It’s going to be so much fun.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
