Jordan’s Review

Jordan Barish, Senior Staff Writer

I went into Captain Marvel with very little knowledge of the hero’s backstory. While I can’t say anything regarding the accuracy of her origin story, I did think the movie was incredibly enjoyable and did a nice job tying together loose ends from other Marvel films. This movie got me even more excited for Avengers: Endgame, now that I have seen the extent of Captain Marvel’s powers. The soundtrack was nostalgically 90’s which I could appreciate (though not to the full extent that my parents did). There was a great dynamic between the characters, especially between Carol and Nick Fury and Carol and Maria. Compared to other Marvel movies, Captain Marvel had a similar feel to Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok, with ample humor, impressive special effects, and a whole lot of fun. This may not have been the strongest Marvel movie in terms of plot, but it was a great theater experience and I can’t wait to see more of Carol Danvers in future films.  

Final rating: 8.5/10
