Goofs

(at around 25 mins) Skrulls can mimic any person they see down to the DNA level. This must include their vocal cords too. However when a male skrull mimics a woman on the beach his (or technically hers) voice is still the same. This is Talos as there are other times he fails to mimic the voice, his mimic skills must not be as good as other Skrulls. See more »

Copy + Paste Marvel Movie
6 March 2019 | by joshua_afiantoSee all my reviews

I live in Indonesia, and I've just seen it since it aired today. The action scenes are good, the de-aging of early SHIELD Agents are great. I can't really notice in seeing Fury. That's it. Those are the good things about this movie. Brie Larson comes off as snobbish when she quips like Tony Stark, but became boring and unlikeable the more she does it. There are moments in the action scenes when it's all CGI that looks like it came from a PS3 game. Comedy is sub-par. Worth of nose exhale at least.

To quote Laura Clifford, "Captain Marvel is a boring mishmash of ideas from a score of other movies and franchises".
