Captain Marvel ★★½

Captain Marvel is the sugar in a wedding cake because it's sweet but not very substantial and really is only tasty filler before the main event.

The film fulfills its duty as an important chapter in the novel approach to Avengers: Endgame, and that's its biggest problem. The film spends so much time setting up the pieces that once the action begins we've already started losing interest in the game and then the action is nowhere near spectacular enough and the CGI is nowhere near flawless enough to make us care.

Brie Larson does a wonderful job in the role, but could not make me shake the feeling that the film is a friend telling me what happened in the movie, rather than a superhero film itself.
