Captain Marvel is not a good movie. Well, maybe it is a good movie if you are in it’s desired target audience. And that audience appears to be teenage liberal girls and their liberal mothers. The film was released on March 8th, 2019 which just so happens to be International Women’s Day. March is also Women’s History Month. The main character of the movie, Captain Marvel, is a woman played by Brie Larson. Much of the notable supporting cast are also women.
It’s girl power to the tenth power!
What part of that recipe mentioned above would appeal to your average adult male who is the chief consumer of action adventure superhero movies from Marvel Studios? Not much if any. Which is why the movie sucks so badly.
Lifetime or possibly Netflix on a free trial would be the best vehicles to consume a movie like this. Maybe wrapped up in a blanket while you eat some bon bons. It did not have much action. Dialogue was muted and far too long. Entirely too many soft and emotional scenes.
Marvel has a history of producing exciting movies about their superheroes with plenty of special effects. A CGI buffet. But what was delivered in Captain Marvel was the total opposite. It fell totally flat for a superhero movie and didn’t even really fully capture the emotional side that a Lifetime movie would do. To your inner 12 year old liberal girl looking for equal representation on screen, this may be a masterpiece. To the rest of us, not so much. Check out the video review for more!
