When the Kree leader, Dar-Benn, tears a jump point in space, Monica Rambo touches it, creating a quantum entanglement between her, Carol Danvers, and Kamala Khan. This entanglement causes them to switch places when they use their powers. This greatly impairs their efforts to stop the Kree from stripping the resources from wherever they want. It also creates some hilarious mix-ups between the three.

I have to give some huge props to Iman Vellani; she stole the show in every scene she shared. Including her family in the action, especially Zenobia Shroff as Mama Khan, was genius. The special effects were top notch and the music kept things hopping along. My big complaint is the lack of an impressive villain; Dar-Benn was kind of meh. I guess Hela was a hard act to follow.

All in all, I had a very good time. I did not see it in 3D, not sure it would have improved it any and it cost 10 bucks more. There is a shocking mid-credits scene, but nothing after that.
