The Marvels

My wife and I went to see The Marvels yesterday evening at the Columbia mall. Excellent film overall, and it’s not necessary to have seen the Ms Marvel series. (Definitely helpful to have seen Captain Marvel and possibly Avengers: Endgame however.)

We saw a sparsely attended 3-D screening, and although the 3-D was well done, the small number of people in the theater leaves me thinking perhaps this gimmick has outlasted its novelty and is now due to fade away for another generation.

Spoiler-free comments on the movie overall – it was much lighter than the last Marvel film I saw in a theater (Endgame) and it was interesting to see the three titular characters come together as a team. The supporting characters were entertaining as well, with Kamala’s family in particular providing some comic relief. And yes, of course the flerken completely upstaged everyone.

And finally, this is a Marvel film, so stay for the credits. There are two bonus scenes, one right at the start of the credits and another midway through.

Excellent movie, definitely worth seeing.
