Has anyone here seen it?

Please post your comments!

I liked it. It was entertaining.

Interesting twist that the Skrulls were not the badguys but were sympathetic characters. I have no idea why they spoke and acted like humans complete with references to human pop culture.

The Kree were the badguys, but that's not too surprising because the Kree are often badguys in the comics.

Someone posted about how the push now is for women and minorities to be the heroes rather than white men, but white men can still be the bad guys. So here we have a white woman with her best friend a black woman and their ally a black man out to win the day against a group led by a white man. I neither approve or disapprove of this, but I couldn't help notice. It wasn't hard for me to root for Captain Marvel at any rate.

Can't tell much about Carol power-wise. She's got some level of super strength, some level of super durability, some level of EP, but no way to say she's more powerful than Hulk, Thor, or Iron Man.

Near as I can remember, Carol's life was never in jeopardy. Usually in action movies, at the end the villian has the upper hand on the hero, the hero is out of options until he's able to pull out the miracle win, and you are led to think he could die. I didn't worry about Carol's life the whole movie. We worried about her friend, Nick, the Skrulls, the Flerken, but not really Carol. Is that a message of some sort?

I really did NOT like the explanation for how Fury lost his eye. I never knew why Fury lost his eye in the comics, but I assumed he lost it in battle during WWII. It should have been lost in a much more heroic way with a lot more meaning behind it. It's like losing his eye was played for comedy! Bah.

About all I can remember for now.
