    For Kids,
    The villain in "The Marvels" is a complete letdown. They are generic and poorly developed, they lack any real motivation or depth. Their evil scheme is laughably unoriginal, and their presence fails to evoke any sense of threat or intrigue. The performance is equally uninspired, making the villain more of a tedious obstacle than a formidable foe. In a movie already struggling with numerous issues, the villain is just another forgettable misstep.

    "The Marvels" is a disappointing mess. The plot is incoherent, with characters making nonsensical decisions. Performances are flat, with Brie Larson seeming disinterested and zero chemistry between the leads. The CGI is subpar, and action scenes are confusing rather than thrilling. The dialogue is cringe-worthy, and the film's pacing is atrocious. Overall, "The Marvels" fails to deliver on any front, making it a forgettable addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Save your time and money.

    "The Marvels" follows in the footsteps of the more cosmic MCU installments, like its direct predecessor and the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. This means it's colorful, a little bit silly at times - and so much fun. It's more than a film; it's a movement. It's a resounding declaration that the strength of women is an unstoppable force, a dynamic symphony of courage, compassion, and unwavering resolve. It's a story that doesn't just unfold on the screen; it resonates in the heartbeat of every viewer, urging them to recognize, celebrate, and embody the kickass power of women in every facet of life. If you're looking for a fun MCU film to watch, look no further.

    I browsed a few user reviews here before my wife and I spun up the DVD for this movie. It is funny, the viewers who have some sort of spiritual connection with the Marvel Universe and expected this movie to be totally serious were universally disappointed. Some give the movie silly ratings of "1" or "2" which of course is totally absurd and an insult to the hundreds of craftsmen and technicians who formed this movie is post-production and created the fantastic sound and visuals.

    At the other end of the spectrum are folks like my wife and me, plain old 70-something retirees, who just look for an entertaining 90 minutes or so. The viewers who align with this outlook write positive reviews and give the movie a decent rating. No, probably not "10", but maybe 6, 7, or 8 when you compare it to other action movies with a humorous approach.

    I won't mention specifics of the storyline here except it has Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and three other powerful young women who fight physically and psychologically for the fate of the universe. When the movie ended my wife said, "I liked the scenes with the cats." Yes, they are very special cats (and kittens).

    Part of what makes this such an entertaining movie are the quiet scenes when the characters get to converse with each other, and the families. Plus, for those of us with a well-equipped home theater sound system, which includes a good powered subwoofer, this movie has a great sound track with body-shaking bass during battle scenes.

    Entertaining movie! At home on DVD from our public library. No extras on the disc.
