Calling all Captain Marvel fans! The epic film centered on Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel lands on DVD, Blu-ray & Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD on June 11! Did you and your family see this movie when it was in the theater? Here is a fun fact for you… this film not only electrified and inspired audiences worldwide, but surpassed $1 billion in ticket sales! Wow!
Here are a few thoughts of mine from reviewing the movie:
First of all, how could I not love the movie since it is a chick super hero? I live in a house full of boys so anything with a chick super hero is my jam! I really appreciate the film-makers focus on Carol Danvers super powers and the movie is filled with a female empowering storyline.
Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that introduces the MCU’s first stand-alone, female-franchise title character—Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel. When we first meet Danvers, she already possesses her superhero powers, having left her earthly life behind and become a member of an intergalactic elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by their enigmatic commander, Yon-Rogg. But after Danvers has trained and worked with the Starforce team, and become a valued member, she finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. While on Earth she quickly lands on the radar of Nick Fury, and they must work together against a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls—the notorious Marvel bad guys made even more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities—and their leader, Talos, who is spearheading a Skrull invasion of Earth.
Is Captain Marvel right for kids?
While there is no nudity or sexual inappropriateness, there is some suggestive language. I would say that you as a parent should use your judgement here. There is of course, violence. The violence in this movie is not graphic. It is more action and sci-fi fighting with laser type of guns. Captain Marvel is rated PG-13 for “sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and brief suggestive language.
Honestly, I think that the overall storyline of this movie is a very positive one especially for children in today’s society. It portrays not only positivity and perseverance, but integrity and confidence. These are all values that we as parents are trying to instill in our children on a daily basis.
