Trivia

In the finale, Carol puts her old Air Force (bomber) flight jacket over her Captain Marvel costume. This is in keeping with the mid-1990s cliche of superheroes wearing "edgy" costumes which invariably included a leather bomber jacket. See more »

The Windows sound 'chord.wav' is used in the internet café scene. However, the sound changed with the release of Windows 98 in 1998. At the time of the film's setting, the computers would have used the old 'chord' sound. See more »

Lacking character arc, Carol felt too plain
30 April 2019 | by movies_and_chillSee all my reviews

I was looking forward to the movie however, it was extremely disappointing. Yes, it's fun and it can be enjoyable if you can ignore everything else and solely watch JUST the action. But Carol has a lot lacking in her character and it was very hard to relate to her and feel for her. She showed very little emotions, we don't see her cry, and nobody knocks her down - she knocks herself down, and for character development, I feel like this is very bad. She has little to no reactions to when she is remembering her past, or even when she unlocked her true power. I feel like she didn't feel human, and she's not a very good role model for women as a female character, she's not empowering for women and could quite frankly be replaced with a male actor and it would still be the same. Which is okay, I won't say that, that is particularly a horrible thing but I feel like a strong female character should be inspiring for the women in the audience. She feels too dull. There was no character arc. Nothing that happens to her, even the shocking moments of the film, nothing changes her or shapes who she is. It's all too bland. The CGI and special effects are amazing, however, it's hard to ignore the flaws when the flaw IS the main character. I would personally not recommend the movie.
