| Disappointing
Where do I even start with this mess?

Let me start by saying I've been a comic book fan since I was a child. I live and breathe Marvel, and will defend their stories and characters until the day I die. I've been able to find something enjoyable in every Marvel movie to date, until I saw Captain Marvel.

This movie is a huge mess, it has a wildly inconsistent tone, extremely boring one-note characters, awful pacing, and worst of all, an absolute nothing of a main character.

Brie Larson is so wooden and plain, I couldn't take anything she said seriously, and any attempt at "charisma" from her made me cringe. For those defending her performance, "her character has amnesia, she's trying to figure out who she is", allow me to point you in the direction of the Bourne films. Matt Damon plays a character that doesn't know anything about himself, and I was firmly invested in his performance from start to finish.

This movie insists on telling you how important Captain Marvel is without doing anything to earn it or demonstrate that to the audience.

Aside from a boring performance of a boring main character there is the matter of the script that drags down whatever this movie had going for it. Captain Marvel takes itself so seriously but provides nothing by way of tension or stakes. It winds up being a completely dull experience, which is the worst thing a colourful superhero movie can be.

The only thing going for this movie is Samuel L. Jackson, who delivers his usual solid performance.

As a fan of movies, this film is really poorly executed, and as a fan of Marvel, I was extremely disappointed. On both fronts, I'd highly recommend skipping this one.
