QUICK TAKE:
Superhero/Action: A young woman with superhero abilities but confusing memories ends up on Earth and must figure out who she really is, all while using her smarts and powers to save the day.
PLOT:
Vers (BRIE LARSON) is a member of the intergalactic Kree battle squad known as Starforce. Fighting alongside the likes of Minn-Erva (GEMMA CHAN), Korath (DJIMON HOUNSOU), and a handful of others, she's both led and mentored by Yon-Rogg (JUDE LAW) who repeatedly reminds her not to let her emotions affect her duties or the firing of powerful energy beams from her hands. Their mission is to defeat the Skrulls, a species of shape-shifting aliens led by Talos (BEN MENDELSOHN) who's obsessed with probing Vers' memory in hopes of getting intel on one Dr. Wendy Lawson (ANNETTE BENING) and her work with a light-speed project.

Coincidentally, Vers interacts with that woman, not as Lawson, but as the artificial intelligence generated leader of the Kree, all while experiencing fleeting memories of a different life that's foreign to her. That all comes to a head when she literally crashes into Earth in the year 1995, meets an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury (SAMUEL L. JACKSON), and discovers that she once had a life on this planet. And that was namely that of Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot where she worked alongside her best friend, Maria Rambeau (LASHANA LYNCH), for none other than Dr. Lawson.

With the Skrulls having followed her to Earth, Carol must then figure out what's really happening and use her smarts and powers to save the day.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
