Who saw it? I did.

 

This one has the most plot holes out of any of these Marvel movies. Still very enjoyable. I would give it like a 7 to 7.5 because of the plot problems.

 

I felt the plot was very predictable, being able to clearly see the Kree were the ones to screw over Carol, and they were the ones controlling her powers with their limiter switch, not the one that gave her the powers.

Dr. Lawson/Mar-vel is trying to develop a Light Speed engine so the Skrulls can leave the Milky Way to get away from the Kree. But there is already plenty of factions and races that have FTL drives. Most of Guardians happens in the Andromeda Galaxy, the 1st closest to 'our' galaxy, the Milky Way. Yondu kidnaps Quill from Earth in 1988 and they end up in Andromeda, so there are already ships with the means to get from Galaxy to Galaxy. FTL engines don't appear to be in short supply, so why can't the Skrulls just get a ship that already has one? Also just a note, they only ever say 'Light Speed Engine', not 'Fast Than Light Speed Engine', so at Light Speed it would still take them 2.54 million years just to get to Andromeda. Andromeda also already had a Kree presence, so the Kree themselves have the means to get from Milky Way to Andromeda.

 

How did Dr. Lawson get the Tesseract. Ok, so maybe SHIELD let the USAF/NASA use the Tesseract during their joint Project: Pegasus. That makes sense. But presumably it would still be a highly valued and secured object, even if they didn't quite know what it was. How did Dr.Lawson manage to steal it? Not only that, but it had to of been missing for up to 6 years, where it was just hanging out in Lawson's orbiting Laboratory/Kree Space Cruiser.

 

The Supreme Intelligence. Before Carol meets the AI it is explained that the AI may appear in any form IT chooses. Why would the AI choose to take the form of Dr.Lawson during it's conversation with Carol? Surely if Supreme AI is trying to keep Carol under control they don't want her questioning her past too much. Why would the AI intentionally choose to show up as someone Carol isn't supposed to know? Maybe it was afraid of Carol piecing together her past through the recurring dreams she was having but shouldn't it of instead offered it's own false answers rather than intentionally keeping it a mystery? That would make Carol just look for answers?

 

Carol shoots one hole in the Skrull ship and the whole thing explodes. Must of shot it directly in the C4.

 

Skrulls are on Earth for like 1 day and in that time they naturally are able to not only find information painting SHIELD as an important organization, they also manage to locate, isolate, and take the form of Nick Fury's boss. In less than 24 hours. GG Skrulls, good work.

 

Ronan The Accuser. He is a part of 'the Accusers', so shouldn't he be 'Ronan A Accuser', not 'The Accuser', since there seems to be quite a few of them? Also, he all "We will be back for HER", then proceeds to presumably forget about Captain Marvel for fifteen before dying in a dance battle. Maybe it was on his TODO.

 

Ronan The Accuser uses Ballistic Missiles to level what looks like entire cities early in the movie as a distraction for Jude Law and his team to extract a Kree Spy. They show one missile leveling a city. Ronan turns up at Earth and proceeds to order all his ships to fire every single missile in a single file line, so they would presumably all land in the same 50m circle? Why not spread out the pay load across a continent? It made it awfully convenient for Captain Marvel to destroy the missiles when they were all fired in a tight clustered single file line.

 

The Tesseract is show to be too powerful for people to just touch, but Goose the Flerken manages to eat it and be fine? Also, why was Dr.Lawson keeping Goose as a pet? The Skrulls are shown to be scared of Flerkens so not like it was helping her refugee pals.

 

Jude Law turns up on Earth and finds fake Skrull Captain Marvel. Why did they even leave him behind? Why didn't they just take him (the skrull) into space with them? Not only that but at no time does anyone tell Jude Law where the Laboratory is but then he and his team just appear on it? I guess when it de-cloaked they managed to detect it? Over sight on Talos's part when they don't re-engage cloaking after boarding.

 

Captain Marvel shoots down Jude Law's little space fighter, he crashes, then Ronan The Accuser turns up and fires his missiles in a single fire line straight down. Captain Marvel flies off. When his ship crashes does Jude Law just literally stand there for like 5 minutes while Captain Marvel flies into space? What was he doing? Not like he could watch. He then proceeds to get Indian Jones'd by Captain Marvel, which was nice.

 

At times the editing seemed to be pretty poor. When Ronan turns up and fires at Earth it just kind of hard cuts to Captain Marvel flying straight up. They don't show her acknowledging the threat. When Fury fights Talos in the records room they showed like 15 guys run in to check the room then some how it is empty for Fury to one on one Talos.

 

Things I like.

 

The whole 'First Female led what ever' thing wasn't ever played up. It didn't feel like there was any real behind the scenes political message, it was just a cool story that happened to be revolving around a female. Not, "eww, men, amirite".

 

Some legit laughs. Old computers, Block Buster, incompetent Kree tech. In fact, the Skrull in general were pretty good.
