In 1995, on the Kree Empire's capital planet of Hala, Starforce member Vers suffers from recurring nightmares involving an older woman. Yon-Rogg, her mentor and commander, trains her to control her abilities while the Supreme Intelligence, an organic artificial intelligence who acts as the ruler of the Kree, urges her to keep her emotions in check.
During a mission to rescue an undercover Kree operative infiltrating a group of Skrulls, alien shapeshifters with whom the Kree have been fighting for centuries, Vers is captured by Skrull commander Talos and forcibly subjected to a memory probe. She manages to escape and inadvertently pilots a pod to Earth, crashing in Los Angeles. Her presence attracts the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Nick Fury and Phil Coulson, whose investigation is interrupted by a Skrull attack. In the ensuing chase, Vers recovers a crystal containing her extracted memories and Fury kills a Skrull impersonating Coulson. Talos, disguised as S.H.I.E.L.D. operative Keller, convinces Fury to meet and work with Vers.
Using Fury's security clearance, Vers discovers she was a U.S. Air Force pilot who was presumed dead after testing an experimental engine designed by Dr. Wendy Lawson, whom she recognizes as the older woman from her nightmares and a friend of former pilot Maria Rambeau. The two escape from Talos in a cargo jet, with Lawson's cat Goose stowing away, and fly to New Orleans, Louisiana to meet Rambeau.

Unexpectedly, I've watched this movie on the eve of International Women's Day LOL! TBH, I truly enjoyed the whole movie and it's plot plus the casts were really good!
When I first watched the teasers and trailers, I did not get the story itself which felt like there were many gaps. After watching the movie, now I know!!! How all this Avengers started! How Fury had that left eye injured! How Marvel supposedly got it's name! So many 'how' answered in this movie! Not forgetting Coulson too as a rookie then!
It may be slow to some but I find the pace just right. May be a little tame with less action but I felt it was just right too. And it all boils down to The Avengers' Endgame. Please take note that there are 2 post credit scenes so you would have to watch till the end.
Overall, it's serious, funny and entertaining, all blended in just right. I would not have it any other way. Aside from Gal Gadot, Brie Larson is now one of my favourite actresses! I just loved the way her power glows and flows! I wasn't expecting quite a number of funny scenes too but Goose was just so entertaining! The unexpected plots really made the movie awesome pawsome!!!
Now, I just can't wait for Endgame next month! Anyway, Happy International Women's Day ladies!!! Girl Power!!!
