I took my time to see this because I wanted to watch this, Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and then see Endgame. I could not be bothered to wait for so long to see everything put together and end. That said, I read a lot about this movie being average, but after seeing it I have to say average my ass. This movie was fun to the max. The graphical work done on Fury is meant to be seen to be enjoyed, Samuel L. Jackson looked so young. Add to that Brie Larson who played Captain Marvel she was just amazing a cast.
Marvel has something D.C. seems not to have figured out, casting people to play roles and making the best out of those people. The financial investment Disney sunk into building the Marvel Cinematic Universe (this is the twenty-first movie in the MCU) is paying out while D.C. is just playing catch up.

The movie plot had the needed adventure, jolt of action and enough mystery to keep you glued from the first moment to the last. In the end you will be geared up to see the movie have another run at you to be sure you did not miss anything.
Set in 1995, the movie focuses on Carol Danvers as she discovers her past grow to become Captain Marvel as Earth is in the middle of a galactic war between two alien civilizations the Krees and the Skrulls.

The movie plot has a little back and forth going on, but it is best you see the movie itself to get the feel, here is the best I can do. Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel/Vers (Brie Larson) is a member of the Kree force who are trying to keep the Skrulls in check. The Skrulls are aliens who have the ability to shape shift into any organism down to their DNA.
During an attack on the Skrulls, Vers get captured and the Skrulls start to probe her memory looking for a certain woman named Lawson. It was during the probe that Vers sees a memory that she had a life on earth as Carol Danvers.

She breaks away from the Skrulls capture and follow them to Earth. There she is met by S.H.I.E.L.D agent Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Phil Coulson who is a Skrull.
Things did not go well from then on as we discover that the Skrull have infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. During their (Fury and Danvers) search for Lawson we find out more about Danvers and this discovery led us to find out more about the current Kree-Skrull war and we are left wondering what is going on.

Great movie to see and you will have a good time seeing it, prepare for some amazing acting and some awesome visuals.
