| Not THAT bad, not that good either.
This movie feels out of place in the MCU, it feels Fury is not the same character we meet (only) 10 years later. The movie tries to force us to like Brie Larson, not Carol Danvers or Captain Marvel. The character feels like a mix between Tony Stark, Thor and Feminist Captain America. To make things worse, at the end she is way to OP. However, the movie had some good jokes, it was not over preachy. Sure there where some Cringe moments, but all in all it could be worse. The best part of this movie is the 90's nostalgia, Ben Medelsohn, Fury&Goose and The Kree. BUT the Kree do not get that much screen time, they feel like The Warriors 3 with even less to do. The intro does gave me shivers, what a tribute to Stan Lee. I would say Captain Marvel is Solo: A Star Wars Story mixed with The Incredible Hulk, a fun popcorn movie but nothing more.

Quotes

Nick Fury: We have no idea what other intergalactic threats are out there. And our one woman security force had a prior commitment on the other side of the universe. S.H.I.E.L.D. alone can't protect us. We need to find more.
Agent Coulson: More weapons?
Nick Fury: More heroes.
Agent Coulson: You ...
Nick Fury: ...


Goofs

A reveal at the end of the film is that Captain Carol Danvers' call sign (nickname) as a fighter pilot was "Avenger." While this serves as a plot mechanism to explain how the Avengers were named, Danvers would not have realistically received such a call sign. First, call signs are almost always pejorative, for instance based on something unwise a new pilot may have done or said. Second, being one of a very few female fighter pilots in the 1980s (prior to the 1991 Tailhook naval aviation sexual harassment scandal), Danvers would have almost certainly received a call sign related to her gender in an unflattering way. Either way, "Avenger" would never happen unless there was a story behind it that did not reflect well on her.

Since we see very little of Carol Danvers' time as an Air Force pilot, there is no reason to assume that no such story exists. There's nothing inherently pejorative about Maria Rambeau's call sign, "Photon", either. What makes a person's call sign meaningful comes from the story behind it, not merely the word used, and we aren't given any information about the stories behind Danvers' and Rambeau's call signs.
