"Captain Marvel" is a perfectly acceptable origin film that's held down only by it's standard scenes of action and severe lack of personality.

A foot soldier on the front line of an intergalactic war between the alien Kree Empire and a race of shape-shifters finds herself stranded on Earth, but when the lost memories of her previous life start to return she begins to question her role in the conflict.
Captain Marvel is essentially the bridge between the two halves of their Magnum Opus and introduces a key character in the Avengers’ war against Thanos. But rather than a high-minded, pompous affair, the story is a more personal journey of self-discovery for a very Earth-bound everywoman. The 1990’s setting is perfect for that of an original Riot Grrrl discovering her girl power and the soundtrack reflects this in a nicely nostalgic way. There is able support from Samuel L. Jackson who brings humour and warmth in his role …

The MCU has been around so long (11 years now, people) that origin stories seem blasé and tedious at this point. But don't count out those origin stories just yet, because Captain Marvel manages to make something old seem new again - and not just because its takes place in the 90s and has plenty of throwbacks to that distinctive era.
No, Captain Marvel succeeds more thanks to an interesting story, powerful connections and, despite so much trolling, a fantastic turn from Brie Larson. Plus, Disney and Marvel keeps things light without being too comedic, with plenty of fun moments and the wonderful introduction of a character who certainly deserves their own movie - Goose the cat. And, unlike most origin stories, our hero already has her powers at the start of the film - most of the …

Marvel's newest movie starring their first female superhero is a winner that soars thanks to a strong leading performance by Brie Larson and a twisty take on the ever tiresome origin story. Taking inspiration from 90s science fiction thrillers like Men in Black, Species, and a little visual flair from the likes of ID4 and The Fifth Element, the action moves from planet to planet as the half human/half alien soldier Carol Danvers goes on avital mission to thwart a sinister extraterrestrial race.
Carol Danvers (Larson) is an elite member of the special forces overseen by the powerful Kree empire who are locked in battle with the shapeshifting aliens known as the Skrulls. Unfortunately, she is plagued by nightmares suggesting a past life on Earth so she teams up with the human secret …

Hi there. I can't say that I like this movie but I had to watch it before I see Avengers. Honestly, I disappointed because the main influence in the last Avengers have Captain America and Tony Stark. This Captain Marvel did almost nothing in the war against Tanos.

Pretty much spot on -
Opening was $153.4 million and $302 million international ($455 million worldwide).
It should wind up with over $1 billion total for sure and the domestic total will be at least $425 million, depending on how it does against Us and Shazam! (which will provide the greatest competition in the next few weeks).

My Box Office Prediction
Opening: $154 Million
Domestic: $445 Million
Overseas: $573 Million
Worldwide: $1,018 Billion
My Say: Female led films have proven to be monster hits at the box office (Wonder Woman, Beauty And The Beast, etc), Plus last year, another MCU film Black Panther was a Titanic/Avatar type phenomenon domestically with its critical acclaim and diverse cast. Captain Marvel will benefit from this though it probably won’t make as much as Black Panther.
