“I have nothing to prove to you”
Brie Larson as Carol Danvers is outstanding. This movie was unexpected breath of fresh air. Some quick thoughts:
- I loved all the 90s references and music.
- The unlikely friendship between Danvers and Fury was probably my favourite part of this movie.
- There was a good balance of humour with the action sequences and story.
- Ben Mendelsohn was such a fantastic addition to the cast. He brought an emotional depth to the film that I was not expecting.
- There was a very ‘human’ aspect to this film, which is something that very few of the Marvel movies have achieved to this level.
Ultimately, Captain Marvel didn’t quite reach the heights I was expecting, but I still enjoyed it quite a lot. I’m looking forward to seeing more of Larson in Avengers: Endgame and hopefully more of some of the other characters this movie introduced in the future. I believe that Danvers has the potential to be one of the strongest additions to the Avengers in the upcoming film. The excitement is REAL.
