The plot, although a little tiring and repetitive, being part of a formula that we have seen multiple times before, is OK and I agree with that. I never said I don't.
Except when they aren't.
OK, gonna say this without provoking a debate or a rant: CM as a movie is good, but is easily one of the weakest movies in the MCU since Thor: Dark World.
I am part of a minority, and I recognise this. That's why this topic exists in the first place, to express our unpopular opinions. However, open Youtube, search 'Captain Marvel review' and link me 5+ good video reviews of CM, five reviews who can ignore the numerous flaws. Chances are that you won't find more than five. And I am pretty sure it's not only YT. A lot of people hate CM, not because of the... let's call it the original reason, but because of it's numerous flaws.
I left the cinema wishing I went with my parents at Dumbo. I liked some things at this movie. It's the MCU after all (although this movie seems more out of place than the Incredible Hulk), but if these things were not there, I would have left the theatre one hour into the movie.
