If you’ve been reading my blog for some time, you know exactly what I think of superhero films. Shortly speaking: they are fun, but if they didn’t exist, I wouldn’t care much. The only thing I’m amazed of and I’ll always respect is CGI and all those people working with it. And that’s the main reason I watch superhero productions. Because, let’s face it, the story is always the same, only some details change. So recently, I decided to see “Captain Marvel”, because why not. Free evening, no energy to watch anything mentally tiring, let’s go. I guess I don’t need to explain who Captain Marvel is, so I’ll focus on my thoughts after watching it. First of all, I’ve heard people don’t like Brie Larson in this role. And I’m not sure why. I mean, she’s acting a bit as if she was a managing director in some boring corporation, but I guess that was the point. Her character is actually an Air Force pilot, so don’t expect her to be overly cute, sexy or delicate. She’s confident, concrete , strong and brave – everything’s there. Besides, I like Brie as an actress, so maybe I’m not being totally objective, but she’s doing her job well and this time it wasn’t different. The second thing I loved was how they de-aged Samuel L. Jackson. Not sure if you’ve noticed, but nowadays we don’t have to make actors look younger using lots of makeup. Now, everything can change on the computer screen, which is equally fascinating and terrifying for me, but I still appreciate the work. And the last thing that I enjoyed in this film were jokes, but it’s typical for Mavel productions, so perhaps you’re not surprised. Basically, I had a nice evening with “Captain Marvel”. However, *SMALL SPOILER* Jude Law as the bad guy? Really? Horrible choice. He has superhero’s best friend’s vibes, not the villain’s vibes, but maybe that’s just me. *END OF SPOILER* Oh and I loved “Just A Girl” by No Doubt as the background for a fight scene. That was awesome.
My rating: 6.5/10
