I enjoyed this movie quite a bit. The origin story is sprinkled throughout until we get the payoff near the final act.
It opens with a nice tribute to Stan Lee. His cameo, while brief, was perfect.
This movie has easter eggs galore. We get a young character who may become Photon in present day MCU. We get young Fury and Colson. We get Ronan the Accuser as well as one of his henchman introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy. The movie also plays with Fury losing his eye.
Captain Marvel has many light and funny moments.
The theater I was in was filled with adults and children. Barring one child getting upset when the skrulls were on screen, most had a blast and were cheering Carol Danvers on .
Just like GotG, the souindtrack for this movie is an amazing throwback. This time to the 90s.
