The Valero Verdict: Captain Marvel

Welcome to another edition of the “The Valero Verdict” movie review. In this I will give you a quick movie review with a couple of bullet points of which I either liked or disliked. I will end the review with rating of the movie and a short overall thoughts.

On the docket today, Captain Marvel, the HIGHLY anticipated Marvel movie with Brie Larson in the driver seat.

  • Brie Larson didn’t work for me. She just wasn’t likable at all. I just expected so much more out of her and felt the writing did her no justice at all.
  • Goose. Enough said.
  • Ben Mendelsohn – HELLLLLLL TO THE YES!!!!!!!!!!! I absolutley loved this man in this movie, he is extremely fun in this role and love to see him part of the universe.
  • One of my favorite scenes in the movie is when Brie Larson breaks into her own as the Captain Marvel character to the tune of Gwen Stefani’s “Just a Girl”.
  • The soundtrack is pure FIRE!!!!!!
  • The de-aging of Jackson is awesome to see. The editing was perfect. Like all Marvel movies, it was visually stunning.
  • Favorite Quote: “It’s a cat, not Hannibal Lector”

The Verdict:

** out of ***** stars

I went back and forth with the rating on this, and honestly on a 2nd viewing made me not like it even more.

Larson just didn’t work for me. I never one time cared about her or the character, outside the “I’m Just a Girl” sequence it was just bad.

The soundtrack in this movie was good. The supporting crew was solid but it just couldn’t overcome the best part of the movie was a Cat.

(Also ready for the Goose vs. Rocket showdown)

Should You See It?: This was a rare miss for Marvel. They should’ve done a better job of developing and making you care about Brie Larson.

  1. […] 1. Captain MarvelThis movie was such a disappointment. I had high expectations per usual due to Marvel knocking movies out of the ballpark. Brie Larson is a phenomenal actress and I felt the script did not help her one bit in this film. If we would’ve gotten more of the “I’m Just a Girl” version of Captain Marvel throughout the film, I think this film would’ve been light years better. The best part of this movie was Goose. When the best part of your movie is a cat, you might want to re-think the movie. Check out my review here: […]
