This is a enjoyable and competent superhero movie. Not a masterpiece, not horrible either.
That such a harmlessly fun superhero romp became yet another batteground for the culture wars just makes me tired of said wars.
The movie's feminist themes, anticipated by some folks, dreaded by other folks, are there more to show how Carol Danvers has true Heroic Spirit, and how she never gives up (as shown in a rather heartwarming montage), the same way you'd get in a Spider-Man movie with Parker as the determined hero, for instance.
In other words, it's basic Marvel fun, not a political treatise.
Honestly couldnt see what the hate was about. It's a fun movie with some jokes, a good story, interesting characters, and which expands the Marvel universe out of the Avengers time zone. It's not preachy and it's not provocative. And despite having a female lead, it can be enjoyed by anyone from any gender, and it has a positive message about not letting what others think of you get in the way of your dreams. A message any kid, boy or girl, can relate to, I'm sure.
The chemistry between Carol and Fury was really enjoyable! The humor was always appropriate and fitted the overall tone of the flick... I personally liked this movie a lot, also post-credit scenes were among the best in a while imho.
