This review of the movie contains the following information:
Vers (Brie Larson), an extra-terrestrial Kree soldier from the planet Hala, is thrown into the middle of an interplanetary war between the Kree, and the shapeshifting Skrulls. After escaping capture from the Skrull leader, Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), Vers finds herself trapped on planet Earth in the year 1995. As she battles the invading Skrulls, she begins to realise that the ‘dreams’ she has been having are in fact flashbacks from another life back on Earth – life as U.S Air Force pilot, Carol Danvers. With the help of Shield agent, Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson), Vers tries to uncover what the Skrull are looking for and how to stop them, all the while trying to control her growing powers and find the key to unlocking her past.

Research shows that children are at risk of learning that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution when violence is glamourised, performed by an attractive hero, successful, has few real life consequences, is set in a comic context and / or is mostly perpetrated by male characters with female victims, or by one race against another.
Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
