     Out of the soon to be 23(!) movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are some gems like The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier and some bad movies that are easily forgotten after one viewing, like Iron Man 3 or Thor: The Dark World. The most recent entry into the MCU, Captain Marvel, is neither of those things. It is, however, taking a lot more flak than it deserves. It isn’t a straight up bad movie like the prior two mentioned, but it isn’t good either. It just.. exists.

 

     The best part of this movie is definitely Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson,) who steals the show. I really loved his performance. And the villain Keller (Ben Mendelsohn) is another great character because of the performance. Brie Larson as this movie’s titular character does a fine job. It certainly is not the finest hour of her acting career though.

 

     Captain Marvel’s real problem is the pacing. The intent seemed to be a slow burn, but it about put me to sleep. Once it gets going, it becomes a decent film that slots somewhere in the middle of the MCU in terms of quality. But because it takes forever to get going, it drops to the bottom end for me.

     Ultimately, Captain Marvel is exactly what I was expecting. It’s a nice little amuse bouche while millions of fans wait for the release of Avengers: Endgame, but that’s about it. My feelings about the character being the most powerful in the MCU are mixed, but I do trust Marvel enough to make the right calls with their storylines.
