Fantastic by name fantastic by nature, this film should not be missed.
August 20, 2019
The character composition helps to convert Captain Fantastic in a dark, fun, and often tender exam about fatherhood and its responsibilities. [Full Review in Spanish]

You're likely to be bored by a two hour lecture from unrealistically perfect humans, hiding inside the Trojan horse of a toothless family drama.
May 3, 2019
The film keeps you guessing about exactly how it is all going to work out but reaches a satisfying ending.

"Captain Fantastic" is all heart and is strengthened by Mortensen's performance. It's a new take on the idea of family, but one that is a fresh look on a different version of it.

A triumph of pure sincerity and heartfelt good vibes.

December 21, 2018
A thought-provoking, endearing and charming movie with a marvellous lead performance from Viggo Mortensen. It stuck it to this man!

Captain Fantastic strives to be stoic and offbeat, but is too stubborn in attitude and too lacking in charisma to defend its stance.

...a lush, vibrant film.

Captain Fantastic leaves the nuance at Mortensen's doorstep and decides to telegraph everything else, which is not something I look for in films nowadays.
August 28, 2018
A unique, entertaining drama with a sharp sense of humour, which deftly challenges the audience's assumptions and open-mindedness.
August 23, 2018
It's a sweet but not saccharine family saga. And while Viggo Mortensen's Ben may be fantastic, he's far from perfect, and the film is all the better for it.
August 23, 2018
But if not fantastic, Matt Ross's gaze at fatherhood has lots of winning moments.
May 1, 2018
It's enjoyable the way Matthew Ross's screenplay and direction try to denaturalize ordinary American life as it's lived in the suburbs, but nothing everyone hasn't thought a million times before.
January 10, 2018
Throughout, it's unclear what Captain Fantastic is trying to tell us, still less what it's trying to say.

[Viggo Mortensen] saves almost anything. [Full review in Spanish]

While the spirit of the movie is admirable, the constant tirades by the Cash family against typical society grow repetitive and lose their impact as a result, even as a device to show the difficulties in processing grief.
