Captain Marvel proves studio has lost it

Is this the beginning of the end for Marvel?

Kevin Feige and the people at Marvel have officially lost it. They had to, to think that making the Captain Marvel movie was a good idea.

This movie was doomed the second they chose Brie Larson to play Carol Danvers. Brie Larson might be the single worst actress in Hollywood.

This was barely even a movie; it would better be described as a two-hour video on radical feminism. If you’re a straight white man, you suck. They didn’t even try and hide the liberal agenda in this one they laid it out for the world to see; and it sucked.

No one wanted this movie. No one cares about Captain Marvel, but they gave it to us, and guess what happened, people hated it.

Captain Marvel, (who was originally a man, but the character was given a makeover due to the rise of radical feminism) is a Kree warrior fighting the Skrulls; an invading alien race. But she keeps having flashbacks to a life on earth. She does not actually know she’s from earth because her memory was erased.

She goes to earth in search of who she really is. With the help of Nick Fury, she discovers her name is Carol Danvers, a former navy pilot, because anything less than that wouldn’t be empowering enough. She then discovers that the Skrull are the good guys and the Kree who she was fighting for originally are bad,

She starts helping the Skrull and together they defeat the Kree.

There is really not much to this movie. My theory is that the writers figured that if they just overloaded the whole thing with a feminist/liberal overtone that no one would give to much thought to how boring the movie was. And judging by the looks I got from most of the women in the theater at the end when I said I wanted my money back, they were right.

This movie was supposed to be another Black Panther, but it was not. Black Panther was a very good movie. Sure, it has some liberal oriented moments, but that was to be expected, and they weren’t really noticeable because the movie itself was very good. But what made Captain Marvel so unbearable was that the plot of the movie was just nothing.

The same goes for the actors. Brie Larson is just awful; it was as if she didn’t even know she was in a movie. The only good thing about this movie was the special effects were pretty good, and that’s really it.

The movie was made because at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, Nick Fury dropped a pager that showed Captain Marvel’s logo, and she was supposed to be some kind of savior.

What was unique about this film was that it was Marvel’s first female led film, and they went with some irrelevant character that was originally a man. Apparently Black Widow, an extremely popular character who has been there since the beginning of the Marvel universe, means nothing.

As I said before Brie Larson is a pretty terrible actress to begin with, but this film had a very specific agenda and she was the gal for the job. S

She made no attempt to be liked and in her efforts to come off as a strong, empowered, independent woman who doesn’t need a man, she just came off as a disinterested jerk. It was like she was always too good for whatever was happening, and it just furthered my disdain for the movie.

And I don’t want to come off as some sexist jerk who cant handle a woman being a super hero or leading her own movie. I encourage having strong female leads but just let it be that. We know she can handle herself by just pushing and pushing every second. But this makes me want to root against her, especially if it’s Brie Larson.

As for Samuel L. Jackson he’s always pretty good as Nick Fury. Honestly, he’s what kept this movie even semi afloat. He was the only character that made me laugh throughout the entire movie, and that’s not good because Marvel movies often rely on their light hearted humor.

Overall, I’d give this movie a 1/10. It might be the worst movie I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen two of the Sharknado films.

I tried to make this review as fair as possible and keep my feelings out of it despite my serious dislike for Brie Larson. If you want to watch it and make a judgement for yourself, you can, but I really don’t recommend it. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 6, but that’s because so many major websites and critics were afraid to bad mouth it because if they did, they’d be crucified for misogyny.

But this is the world we live in, so I’ offering you my honest review. As I conclude my review of Captain Marvel, I leave you with this one piece of advice if you are going to watch it. Don’t go into it expecting anything good because you will be let down.
