    Disappointing movie that had potential.

    Went into this one with high hopes since this character is most likely the tent pole for the MCU going into the future, and because it was another female led story that my daughter could look to for heroics. This was a let down. A by the numbers adventure and standard origin story (which is ok I knew that going in so I wasn't looking for ground breaking movie making), the biggest let down is the bland acting of the lead. Brie Larson won an Academy Award so I expected someone who could at least show some emotional range like excitement or anger etc. at the appropriate moments. Nope. Blank stares and flat delivery of lines=no emotional impact or bonding with the main character. Her reactions, or non-reactions had me rolling my eyes and wishing for someone to make me care about what was happening on screen because she obviously did not. Gale Gadot was awesome as Wonder Woman, Scarlett Johansson always made you care about Black Widow, but Larson? Oh Boy. That and the stupid way Nick Fury loses his eye after such promising teases (the last time I trusted someone I lost an eye) almost completely ruined this movie for me (And the I'm Just a Girl led fight scene-we get it and support it stop punching the audience in the face trying to make us support girl power we already do), but the visuals and action saved the film. I was glad to see that the "acting" problem was maybe due to a weak director once I saw Larson in Endgame. There's hope for Captain Marvel movies seeing her do much better in that movie. You know it's a problem when an eight year old girl says a movie made for girls to cheer was "okay." Still, while being entertaining, this one lands in the bottom ranking of Marvel movies due to the aforementioned problems. Please be better in sequels. Please.

    I’m not going to say this movie is gorgeous because all marvel movies are expected to be. I’m also not going to praise the sound, world building, and amazing characters for the same reason. This movie just ran the same origin formula and just felt old, generic, and boring. Larson come across as smug and condescending just because she can be. It’s really sad when a movie named captain marvel has to have the dialog and main events done by nick fury and goose the cat to stick in your memory. I watched it in theaters like most because I thought it was crucial to endgame, it’s not. And the only reason I purchased the steelbook is so I could have the full set of phase 3. And here we are 2 weeks later and they are still in stock with plenty of copies. That’s rare for a marvel movie at my Best Buy. Reminds me of the last Jedi steelbook that’s still in stock a year later because people didn’t buy them. And as a final note the artwork and design of the steelbook is very well done and fits the story of the movie. That’s one thing marvel always gets right is cool and well designed steelbooks

    A rare misstep by the MCU

    Over the years the MCU has had some good movies and some great movies. Sadly Cap. Marvel is among the weakest entrees. If you compare it to other lower tier MCU movies such and Iron Man 2/3 or Thor 2 those movies are much better in comparison as they at least have likable character with pleasant personalities and fun interactions with other characters. Cap Marvel is just flat and boring. Seeing it twice personally the second viewing was almost painfully slow. Thankfully they kept her mostly out of Endgame it being one of the weaker Avengers movies already but at least enjoyable. Hopefully they will figure out what to do with this Character before Cap marvel 2. Hopefully over the years she will grow a personality and learn how to interact with others.

    Marvel's rendition of "SuperGirl".

    I thought that I was watching a SuperGirl movie when I watched this movie of "Captain Marvel". Nothing extraordinary with this movie. Good action and special effects; but, it's all the same as with most all of the "hero" movies, but, Captain Marvel has no weaknesses at all. You had to piece it together for yourself at why she was called Captain Marvel. She was supposedly a "captain" in the air force" at one time and she had a good friend with the last name Marvel get killed and she took her last name. Crazy reason...that's why you have to figure it out by yourself instead of them just naming her after the Marvel comic book franchise. Not a keeper; but, I bought the blu-ray of it thinking that it would be.

    Its not the worst MCU movie I've seen but its certainly not the best either. far from it actually. It suffers from bad story elements and typical plot twist that you see coming from a mile away. It feels the need to bang you over the head with its strong women feminism message. Unlike like Wonder Woman where you just got that she was a strong woman from her actions, this film seems to wanna tell you that with dialogue that we don't need. Show us rather than tell us, because it is a very important movement. I think it could've been presented better in the film. Its decent, but there are better films out there with the same message. Good action scenes though.

    This movie was ok, Better then the hulk but not as good as the other 20 movies out so far. I found the story confusing and wondered who was who and why. Also the transition from being an enemy and then a friend of the shape shifting things was poorly done. I mean how many people were killed, and then they talk and everyone gets along...seriously. My teen girls loved this the best, but everyone else said it was just ok.

    I really didn't know what to expect with this movie and rolled the dice. Looks like the dice weren't that friendly to me this time, as I found this character, movie and story line to be quite boring. The actors in this movie were rather weak, the story line was muddled and the character was a bit boring. I would rate it among the worst Marvel movies to date. Save your money, buy something you know is solid.

    Many movies are more enjoyable the second time around, but not this one: it was OK in the theater, but rather boring on re-viewing. Not a great addition to the Marvel lineup. Case was internally damaged in shipping but returning or exchanging opened “media” is subject to too many rules and regulations to be worth the trouble.

    I really like the steelbook but the movie is very underwhelming, I like all the Marvel movies but this is the first one that I really don't like and Captain Marvel is one of my favorite Marvel characters too. The movie however really lacks personality and is just really bland and boring overall.

    The movie was okay. I really didn't like how they portrayed Nick Fury's character. He was way to happy. I also through the villians were wasted. It could have been a good set up for secret wars, but they dropped the ball. I did think Brie was perfect for the role, I just wish they had a better script.

    The action scenes were entertaining but ultimately the movie does not have the heart that some of the other Marvel movies have. I just didn't care about the characters. And the way Nick Fury is portrayed in this movie is jarring compare to other Marvel movies.

    Ok this movie is way to far from the real marval, because the real one can't fly in space or breath in it, and isn't that powerful as they made her and marvel isn't a woman or a man. Marval is really shazam but hey why would they follow the comic books

    The supporting cast saves this. Love all the 90s references and scenery. Talos stoke the show. Main character was ok but no charisma, kind of dull. Good for a character jntro movie. The Nick Fury/cat interaction was also funny.

    Great visual effects. The flight/flying scenes were really good. Great special effects. But the story sucks. Movie could've totally been left out of the MCU and it would not have made a difference to the MCU. Expected much... But was disappointed.

    The movie itself is mediocre. It looks great on 4k but it's easy to see the cgi flaws. There's not a whole lot of bonus features as well. Worth buying if you need it to complete your collection.

    Really only 1 star but the box office doesn't lie...people will spend money on anything. I know - I did. Not recommended as far as MCU or at least not for my personal library.

    Standard story, not a great lead actress. It just didn’t do it for me. Capt Marvel just seemed like a jerk most of the time. Her sarcasm just didn’t click. Video and audio were great tho.

    The quality of the movie is great, such as the audio. However the movie wasn’t great. Very boring. Took me a couple of times to watch it to finish it

    Good characters, Brie Larson and Sam Jackson are great together, but the story is underwhelming and so boring. Decent cgi, but it’s weak.
