Captain Marvel - Rated PG-13
The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Critics: according to, "Packed with action, humor, and visual thrills, Captain Marvel introduces the MCU's latest hero with an origin story that makes effective use of the franchise's signature formula. 83% LIKE!"
Blake: those in-the-know tell me Captain Marvel isn't a cinematic marvel. It is however, a '90s based retro-laced beginning for what could be a bright future and Brie Larson proves she has the ingredients to help give it a strong and glossy sheen. 3 of 5 stars.
