There's a lot to like with Captain Marvel, but there's a lot to forget as well.

The direction is boring, the acting is boring, the writing is boring...this is pretty boring.

In a Marvel Cinematic Universe that has grown increasingly complex and interwoven, Captain Marvel succeeds by sticking to the basics.

"Captain Marvel" has things going for it that elevate it a bit above the pack and provide more cultural oomph and import, but despite that, this is also a Marvel movie that feels like another Marvel movie.

Captain Marvel is an exploration of complex female strength, and while she is different from Thor or Captain America or Iron Man, she is a superhero all the same.
June 28, 2020
Captain Marvel hits all the right buttons for an MCU origin story, while also pushing a few that make it stand out from the others.

Sometimes it stumbles upon the dullest components of a generic formula that is at the service of nonsense. [Full review in Spanish]

Filled with an empowering message and sharp-elbowed clapbacks at the toxic male naysayers of the Marvel fanboy universe, Captain Marvel is just what the MCU and fandom in general needs right now.

Solidly good and very enjoyable. But the film has flickers of greatness, most of which are when the film takes on the form of buddy comedy with Larson paired with Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury. Jackson and Brie have a hilarious rapport.

Captain Marvel is an enjoyable escapist movie that happens to check all the boxes for a modern progressive audience and delivers humor and action in an easy to watch, slickly-made package that maybe even the fanboys might like.

Marvel's first stand-alone female hero is definitely formidable. And very likely a key component in the next movie.

After all, Captain Marvel is a Marvel Studios film with significant ties to the U.S. military. While it's nominally critical of war, its hands are filthy with government propaganda.
December 6, 2019
One of Marvel's most layered films, which only gets more enjoyable on the rewatch.
November 22, 2019
Brie Larson packs a punch as one of Marvel's great new heroes.

There's a significant amount of time dedicated to an entire alien race, and for a cinematic universe that first introduced space seven years ago, it's refreshing to learn more about the races of the MCU...

Danvers' fish-out-of-water story that occurs when she lands back on earth is where this movie starts to hit its stride.
September 27, 2019
The movie's central premise asks: Who is this person? I'm not sure we get more than a superficial answer.
September 26, 2019
It's a middle-tier Marvel movie. And yet I liked it a lot more than that label implies. Brie Larson, Ben Mendelsohn, and Samuel L. Jackson are so much fun to watch. Carol Danvers is so cool.
September 25, 2019
Captain Marvel packages this dilemma in a stylish, thoughtful and funny superhero movie that's a twist on the usual origin story formula.
September 20, 2019
I like this character and I like this movie. Bri [Larson] is a square-jawed badass.
