I've seen all of the MCU films to date, and enjoyed them all (to varying degrees). Until this one.

I wasn't thrilled by the press in the run up to release. I'm sure there are loads of actors I don't align with, but we all have our own politics. If you want my money, however, it's probably best if you don't go out of your way to insult me.

But it's Marvel, right? It'll be okay? In a word, no.

I didn't enjoy Brie's performance at all: bland and charmless. The humour was off (not entirely sure that's her fault and not the director/scriptwriters). Mind you, even a more personable actor mightn't have saved the day, as Marvel have decided to import the biggest headache of the DC universe, namely that the lead character is invincible. Sure, Superman can be taken down with Kyptonite, but failing that it's all pre-ordained. Well, of course, we usually know who's going to survive any film, but *in theory* they could die, and they all have faults that make them endearing or relatable. Not so with Carol Danvers. I'm genuinely worried for Endgame now (Thanos? No problem, let's call Captain Marvel), and really concerned about the MCU after than if Captain Marvel is going to be the anchor. Still, we've had a good run, I suppose.

Story-wise, I didn't rate it. The script has too many holes for me. That's not necessarily a deal-breaker; I felt Alita & Wonder Woman had a bunch of holes, but I was so into the characters that I was barely aware of them. With Captain Marvel though I wasn't bought in, so the poor script writing was more apparent. There are also plenty of unnecessary continuity errors between this script and the previous (later timeline) MCU films - were these guys even paying attention?

And the fracking eye backstory. Come on guys, Must Try Harder!
