There's some great visual humor. Once you get on Earth things start picking up.

Despite many redeeming qualities about Captain Marvel, I found it to be a very safe film with slightly heavy-handed elements, which wasn't very exciting.

This feels like a very by-committee MCU entry. At least they actually shoot in daylight at some honest-to-god recognizable locations in this one.

Carol Danvers takes us on her journey to understanding that her power does not need to be given to her; she can empower herself.

By repeatedly emphasizing resilience, Captain Marvel makes an effective role model for girls and boys alike.

Captain Marvel is a winner on all fronts, offering an exciting, engrossing standalone story while putting its stamp on the overarching MCU saga.

Good Marvel formula, with some genuinely surprising twists and strong action, but a familiar groove nonetheless.

Larson plays [Captain Marvel] with dignity and has a lot of charisma. [Full review in Spanish]

The chemistry between Larson and Lynch propels the last half of the movie; Lynch brings depth, love, and believability to Maria.

This nonlinear narrative adds interest beyond your typical origin story, but it's quickly overwhelmed by the same shtick that's in all these movies-uncompelling action sequences, recycled villains and flat direction.

The convoluted origin story mixed with the cluttered action sequences suck some of the air out of the theatre but their take on the superhero character as both an outsider and one of us is as refreshing as it is unusual.

A Marvel staple is to keep the story light and entertaining, and Captain Marvel is on par with Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man in that respect.

The production and release of Captain Marvel, the new science fiction superhero adventure from Marvel and Disney, has a number of remarkable features, but none of them involve the film's drama, action or characters.

This is Marvel's most narratively ambitious movie ... and it's occasionally a little hard to follow. But I'll take that trade, given that it's showing us something new.

Captain Marvel is the living embodiment of some of the MCU's worst tendencies, but still ends up being an enjoyable ride and a fine introduction for Carol Danvers.

While I felt let down by the lack of action, I left the theater with far more to chew on. I felt vindicated too ... She personifies strength and courage, and she's a character our daughters should see represented on the big screen.

... at some point you just wish the writers would ease up a bit and stop attempting to wring comedy out of each and every situation.

[Captain Marvel] is a blast-- a rip roarin' thrill ride full of humor, heart and guilty-pleasure '90s nostalgia that flips the expectation of an origin story genre on its head.

Despite the standalone nature of this film, the first 40 minutes or so are fairly rough in design, structuring, and visuals.

This film pulls off the impressive feat of making an origin story interesting by upending the usual structure of these tales, throwing us headlong into the action with the title heroine and only then revealing how she became an intergalactic warrior.
