Captain Marvel is the newest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s collection of record-breaking blockbusters. Despite the film’s jumbled exposition and weak lead performance, it manages to remain an enjoyable experience.

The cinematography at play in the film is one of the best examples from the franchise. The use of color is down right gorgeous at some points and engrosses the viewer in the movie’s world.

The chemistry between Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson was a treat to watch and provided some wonderful chemistry. Their back-and-forth interactions made for some of the best humor in the film.

The movie also utilizes a form of CGI that completely de-ages the faces of Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg. Not only is it the best implementation of the technology in a film yet, it was completely convincing.

The only major thing bringing the film down is Brie Larson’s sometimes stale performance as the titular character. She does an acceptable job overall, but didn’t bring the depth to her character that could’ve been possible.

Captain Marvel is an overall enjoyable movie. Its cinematography and character interactions are the highlights of the film and elevates it to a harmless and enjoyable watch.
