Captain Marvel: Nathan's Movie Review
After about a week of seeing fake reviews and unwarranted hate bashing the film, I finally was able to go see Captain Marvel for myself. Now I wonder, where did all this hate originate and why did so many people follow suit and bash it before even seeing it? What happened to the days of seeing a film before speaking an opinion on it? It seems like those days are long gone as I urge each and every one of you to go see the film and ignore what all the trolls are saying. The MCU has gotten better and better with each entry, Captain Marvel being no exception.
The film follows Carol Danvers, a woman who believes she is a Kree warrior. She's trained and powerful and thinks the Skrull race are the enemy. After a battle and crash-landing on Earth in 1995, Carol begins to uncover secrets about a past that she forgot she had and unravels an intergalactic conspiracy that puts everyone at risk. Now, with the help of a young Nick Fury and a Flerken, Carol must learn to harness and control her power all the while trying to stop the inevitable invasion from happening.
There's nothing I didn't love about this film. The story, the writing, the acting, the humor...everything was top-notch. But what I loved most was how it made the MCU feel a little more complete. It answered so many questions and tied up all the holes with a nice little bow.
One of the things I heard was that the film was sexist. Just because we have a female superhero who doesn't take hits from people doesn't mean the message is sexist. It's whole intention is to inspire both young girls and adult women alike to believe in themselves and never stay down when life knocks you down. Stand and discover who you are and show the world you aren't afraid anymore.
In conclusion, I don't have enough space to express how much I loved the film and how much it really impacts not only the MCU but also people as a whole, women and men both. I give the film a 4 out of 4.
Thank you, Stan, and rest in peace.
