The screenplay would rather see Larson be stoic than human. She has a movie stars squint and a charisma that melts the screen, but the character, despite amiable virtue, isn't particularly relatable... there's nothing super about her.
The characters display recognisable humanity which is the film's balance but not often enough or convincingly. There's something dark and empty in all the fanfare and fuss, and it seems aimed solely at an audience that grew up in video arcades.
We may learn Vers' true name and how she came to be a Kree warrior but we never learn enough about who she is, flaws and all, to make her anything more than another interchangeable hero in a shiny suit.
It was lacking, a bit flat, and I'm honestly concerned about how she will enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe...it's so concerned with being a feminist film that it forgets how to be a superhero movie.
