Goofs

When Carol removes the control device from her neck, it is actually her avatar doing it while in a virtual reality session with the Supreme Intelligence. While certainly possible in a ridiculous comic book movie, it was not previously established in the film that actions in virtual reality could have such a direct a physiological connection. It's kinda cheating. See more »

Has cool moments, but poor main character writing.
7 March 2019 | by deztronSee all my reviews

I've liked Brie Larson in other films, but she showed ZERO range in this. When your main character in a superhero movie is unwatchable, you already have a problem. In addition, Captain Marvel has no weaknesses, which kills the tension immediately. There is no point at which you feel she is in any danger of losing, or any danger at all for that matter.

It's an OK origin story, but it makes no sense as to WHY she's supposedly so powerful.

The cat was good.
