Brie Larson was tragically miscast in this movie. She was appallingly bad in the amateurish film. Something was just very off with this movie. Larson seems incredibly uncomfortable playing her role, just acting in general. She just isn't a charismatic leading lady. Her enthusiasm and smiles are forced. Several of her lines came off as duds. She's no Robert Downey Jr. It doesn't help that Larson is basically Supergirl and has nothing to fear from any enemy. Superheroes with no flaws or weaknesses usually result in very boring movies. Sure enough, Captain Marvel plows through everyone and saves the day. Not really a spoiler because everyone can figure this out!
Making matters worse is the feminist-left wing agenda that is absolutely try-hard and shoved in your face. You're not a white supremacist, racist, bigot or a troll for pointing this out, it was needlessly written into a movie with no reason for it to be there at all. The one thing I loved about Blade was that his race or cultural heritage never had to constantly be put out there the entire film. He was just Blade. Spawn was just Spawn. Marvel's movies with minority superheroes seem to just have to hit the audience in the face over and over reminding them of what the backgrounds of their characters are and why white men are so bad. I mean, at points, the movie tries to make this point that girls can do everything men can do and if you don't agree with that, you're a bigot. That's ridiculous, this is scientifically proven!!! No woman is going to be winning a fight in UFC anytime soon against a man. Among other things, don't want to get into it, but there is some movement determined to prove everyone is equal and it's ridiculously stupid and wrong. We're not and it's time people got over it. Towards the end when it's revealed an alien race is trying to look for a new home, it got very clear that this movie was written around a SJW agenda and that for me deserved a one-star rating. You write superhero movies to entertain, not to spread propaganda on a tangent.
The Aussie Skrull character also did a lot to take me out of the movie. I didn't understand why he had an accent. It was never explained. I kind of rolled my eyes, haven't spent a month in Australia, it just came across as really cheesy and forced to make the character likable. I would have preferred Ben Mendelsson do a more standard accent and drop that act that made me think I was watching some kid's movie.
I don't think Brie Larson was thrilled to do this movie and she should not bother to return. I really have zero interest in ever seeing this character again, even if she was recast. I really hope Marvel ditches the Z-list characters and focuses on the X-Men world and Spiderman for the next decade. This just isn't cutting it.
EDIT: The NY Times's Cara Buckley now says I am a bigot for not liking this movie and its SJW propaganda. I apologize profusely, how dare we offend the NY Times and dislike their ideology's propaganda. I thought we were in the United States, my bad.
