The introduction of Carol Danvers to the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes during a very trying time. It's score puts it on a par with the last two installments - Avengers: Infinity War (68) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (70). But this is the origin story they went with and it does not include Bening teaching Larson how to fly a fighter plane. But things start to come together when she crash-lands on Earth in the middle of a Los Angeles Blockbuster Video somewhere around 1995, which you know because there's a "Babe" poster and a cardboard display for "True Lies". The Starforce are but just one part of the equation in the ongoing Kree-Skull War.
As expected, Samuel L. Jackson is entertaining as Nick Fury, but in an unexpected way. With this duo at the center, Captain Marvel seamlessly moves from road movie, to heist film, to mystery thriller. Some boycotters say they'll go see the James Cameron-produced "Alita: Battle Angel" this weekend instead - as if pitting one female action hero against another isn't its own form of sexism. I have to tip my cap to the visual effects team for de-aging them by two decades. Sure, they've managed that quite handily with the Netflix TV Marvel villains, and with Thanos, but other villains in the MCU haven't faired that well. Once business gets taken care of, the duo head off to Louisiana where Davers gets a long overdue reunion with Air Force colleague Marie Rambeau (Lashana Lynch). The design of this place is very intricate. For those who don't know, the film has endured brutal attacks on Rotten Tomatoes by a disturbing number of angry men shouting from behind their laptops saying the film was "rotten" hoping to dissuade everyday cinemagoers from going to see the latest in the Marvel franchise. Why?
China lodges strong protest against Huawei CFO's extradition proceedings
The conduct for which extradition is sought must also be considered criminal in both the United States of America and in Canada. A Chinese court also sentenced a Canadian to death in a sudden retrial, overturning a 15-year prison term handed down earlier.
Goose absolutely steals the show here. The set pieces and action scenes alone give it that kick-ass feel. And Larson, a perceptive, low-key actor, carries the whole affair capably; she smiles just the right amount, which is not a lot. I look forward to seeing how Captain Marvel comes into play in "Avengers: Endgame".
Danvers has the opportunity to prevent the explosion but chooses to let the past unfold in alignment with her current desire to be a superhero. The recognizable Marvel origin elements are there, but are given a fresh makeover thanks to the film's nonlinear timeline, which jumps back and forth between the present and Carol's past. What images you do remember, after the movie's over, tend to be defiantly lo-fi, such as the Skrulls strolling out of the ocean or, more kinetically, Danvers' speeding-train smackdown with a Skrull disguised as a sweet old lady. We get to the roots of Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S and learn the people involved. The less you know about him going in, the better.

Marvel Studios are well known for their love of after-credits scenes as a way of interconnecting their shared universe. With a great soundtrack, a terrific Stan Lee cameo (as well as a Kevin Smith reference that warmed my heart), lots of humor, and a rousing climax, this is an unqualified success. This latest Marvel Studios expansion pack stars Oscar victor Brie Larson as an amnesiac. Excelsior to you, Stan! For me, my feelings about Captain Marvel are "this could be fun" and a slight shoulder shrug.
Co-directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel opens with "Vers"-the name Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is given by Yon-Rogg (Jude Law), her Kree mentor/leader". Larson opted for minimal makeup and a perfectly applied spray tan, which gave her just enough of a glow against the black and red backdrop on the carpet.
