This was fun. It was light compared to the last several movies, with more humor, a sort buddy cop feel, a fair amount of space action and an unexpected guest star that really stole the show in every shot.
I a few questions came to mind.
So the Kree empire is actually several planets and species forced into the empire, aka they’re not at all blue?
Ronan said he’d come back for the weapon, but he meant her not the cube except he, well, he never does so why even add that line?
Goose and Fury were a lot of fun together.
The first end credit made me excited for more movies, and the second was still fun
For parents, there are some slow parts in this movie but if kids have seen the previous movies, i don’t know why they would have any problems here.
There are two parts, beyond the slow parts, that might be an issue.
My nephew (10)leaned over and told me the archive scene, where the lights kind of turn on and off with motion and have this cascading effect was scary. It’s not a scary scene but… there are several horror/slasher movies that set-up scary scenes this way so I think he was actually anticipating something that never happens
There a scene around the cat that shocks and surprises, on purpose. I think my 4 year old nephew might find it scary but it moves quickly to humor so it might not be an issue. I can’t really say much more without a total ruination of a plot point, but I suspect most younger kids might get scared there, but only momentarily.
I also enjoyed the soundtrack. It isn’t hugely memorable but it got heroic and space down pretty well.
Nick Fury also received a lot more Samuel L Jackson kind of humor and action movie influence than before which I think was nice. It at least showed, for a little bit, that he is capable despite severe human limitations.
