Critic Reviews for Captain Marvel

All Critics (464) | Top Critics (49)

  • The problem is with the corporate anticulture that controls these productions-and the fandom-targeted demagogy that they're made to fulfill-which responsible casting can't overcome alone.

  • Lacking the wit and graphic oomph that sometimes rescues the Marvel franchise from terminal fatigue, "Captain Marvel" is yet another origin story for yet another superhero.

  • For Marvel there's a new boss in town.

    Mar 10, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The film may be about women breaking their shackles, but the lead actress feels kept in check for much of the picture. Humor winds up being provided by Samuel Jackson's Nick Fury, heart by Lashana Lynch's Maria Rambeau, and pathos by...well, it ain't Larson

    Mar 8, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Does it work? The short answer is: yes. There's enough to keep both diehard Marvel fans and newcomers engaged.

    Mar 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Superhero cinema has lectured us, ad infinitum, on the responsibility that is conferred by extraordinary gifts. Praise be to Larson, for reminding us that they can be bringers of fun.
