What Says Mr. Ahwaan about Captain Marvel.
” A nice built up to the Avengers End Game, with an apt release time that coincides with
The MCU is definitely getting more and more intriguing as we are approaching the Avengers End Game. New superheroes are getting introduced making the clan more fascinating. The latest entrant in the universe and protagonist of this flick is Carol Danvers (Brie Larsen) who buckles up as Captain Marvel, the protector of the universe when Avengers didn’t exist and the film chronicles tge events in this space almost 25 years ago.
Grappling with nightmares that questions her own existence , Danvers feels she has strong connection with Earth after an intergalactic battle between two Alien communities, namely , the Kree and the Skrulls.In Earth, referenced as C-53, she encounters Nicholas Fury aka Fury(Samuel Jackson) , the chief of S.H.I.E.L.D, who helps her trace her memories to her origin, thereby piecing together the puzzle blocks that involved her deceased mentor and commander pilot , Dr Wendy Lawson aka Mar-Vell and the concealed power of the Core.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck who also wrote the film’s plot , Captain Marvel offers great visual spectacle and nuances that fill the humane quotient.There are moments imbued with emotional heft and genuine feeling and insights about the purpose of a superhero. Yet there are road blocks and the narrative sometime feels stretched with all the glaring and over glowing razmatazz of the alien universe.
But its not to undermine the superlative efforts that the primal cast brings on to the table. Brie Larson adorns Danvor with grit and the much required no-nonsense bravura.Samuel Jackson is incredibly good and provides the stream of humor even in the most undemanding situations, specially with his feline buddy, Goose – the Flerken cat. Jude Law doesn’t get much scope here, but his part is indispensable for the film’s greater revelation.
I particularly liked the action sequence in the train where Danvor sniffs a shape-shifting Skrull in the garb of an old lady and a duel ensues.I wish there were more of such urgency-fuelled strips rather than the stereotypical VFX-infused battles.
Nevertheless, Captain Marvel is worth your bucks, keeping you thoroughly absorbed and serves the greater purpose of gender diversification with its woman superhero.Dont miss the post credit snippet. More power to Women !
I go with 3.5 stars
